Nowadays, we have various accounts for various services that we use daily. Be it social media, e-commerce website, other personal accounts, and what not? But, having a multitude of accounts simply is not enough because with that comes the added task of having to remember several login credentials. You will say, why not one account for everything, because if it is so, then, if someone gets to your one account then all other accounts become vulnerable. Hence, here comes the use of a dedicated password manager. On that note, we will see Google Password Manager vs LastPass in this article.

One of the main concerns with passwords is security. If you are aware of these services, you are also looking for some convenience and thus some security.
It’s a good practice to have different passwords for different accounts, but that comes with the inconvenience of remembering hundreds of passwords that we create. For this simple reason, Google Password Manager and LastPass are useful for users. They help in storing and protecting passwords.

Google Password Manager vs LastPass

Google Password Manager is a free service provided by Google to its users, while LastPass is available in both free and premium versions. Of course, the free version has its limitations. Thus, in the subsequent sections, we will see how secure these two platforms are and how they work.

It should be clear that Google Password Manager is not secure if your Google account is not secured. Besides, all the passwords you store on the Google Password Manager are stored in the Google cloud linked to your Google account. Google is always very vigilant when it comes to who is accessing your Google account.

A good place to start is to increase the security of your Google account. You can do this by setting a complex password and enabling two-factor authentication for your account. You may have noticed that Google asks you on several occasions how to make your Google account more secure. Follow these steps, and you are good to go.

Features of Google Password Manager

  • Password Generation: It generates complex passwords when you sign up for a new account on a website or in an application. Not only that, but you can also store your custom credentials.
  • The auto-fill feature: From the data stored in its vault, it auto-fills your username and password.
  • Unlimited Password Storing: You can store any number of credentials.
  • Password compromise alerts: It also informs you about data breaches and whether a password has been compromised by the breach and thereafter, change those passwords to a new one.
  • Cross-Platform Service: Google Password Manager works across browsers and devices, but only one version of the app on a device.

How secure is LastPass?

LastPass is another awesome platform for storing your online account passwords, but it has its pitfalls. First of all, it’s a freemium application. You can either use the free version with its limitations or use the premium service.

When it comes to security, LastPass is a great service, that works on a no-knowledge security model, which means that neither the master password(for all accounts) nor the passwords in the vault are known. All your passwords are encrypted at the device level using AES -256 encryption, the most advanced level of encryption to date.

Once encrypted, this information is synchronized with the Transport Layer Security (TLS). This provides security against attackers in transit since attacks in transit are very common and the information is highly vulnerable in this case.
