Though I’ve been syncing my Safari web passwords lately using the new iOS 7 password-syncing feature called iCloud Keychain, I’m still a 1Password type of guy, mainly as iCloud Keychain doesn’t support secure notes, tagging, folders and what not.

That said, I understand AgileBit’s password manager may not be everyone’s cup of tea due to its high asking price ($17.99 for the iPhone/iPad app, plus an additional $49.99 for 1Password for Mac).

But there are other password managers out there and one of them called LastPass is free and has just received a nice little makeover for iOS 7…

The fresh coat of paint is much welcomed, as the screenies show.

In addition to the visual makeover, LastPass also has a brand new built-in browser interface which – just like 1Password – lets you securely browse websites like Facebook, eBay and PayPal with automatic password log-in, without having to switch to Safari and manually type in or copy-paste your credentials.

The enhanced browser experience now also includes multi-tab support and the ability to print via AirPrint. If you haven’t tried out LastPass yet, I wholeheartedly recommend giving it a quick whirl – chances are you’re going to fall in love with it immediately.

After setting up LastPass on iOS and Mac gear, your passwords will seamlessly sync between devices via a Host Proof Hosting method which the company says prevents anyone from accessing your sensitive data. You can manage all your passwords in-app, see and fill form data, generate new passwords and more.

And if you go premium for $12 per year, additional functionality gets unlocked.

Like 1Password, there’s a browser extension though “Safari integration is not possible yet”, according to release notes.

LastPass is available free on the App Store.

The 10MB universal binary supports any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 5 or later and is optimized for the taller screen on the iPhone 5/5s/5c.

The best bit: being cross-platform, LastPass is readily available for iOS, OS X, Android, BlackBerry, Windows and Linux mobile devices and desktops.

There’s also the free LastPass Tab Browser app which combines a full-featured tab browser for the iPad with LastPass integration allowing you to manage your existing accounts and something called LastPass Wallet to manage your credit card information, jot down secure notes, capture photos, record voice clips and more.

Have you tried LastPass yet and what did you think of it?

    RoboForm for me. Been on that on my window based computers (work/home), iOS devices and recently my MacBook Pro. Has a built in browser, saves notes, integrates well with Chrome and other browsers and is available on the web. Also works with applications on the Windows based machines. I haven’t tried apps on Mac yet.

    Questioning in my mind if I need to use another password manager, especially one just restricted to Apple such as iCloud Keychain, or others like 1Password or LastPass. I tried LastPass about three years ago, but it just was not up to the integrated potential of RoboForm. So I dropped it.

    1Password is good

    Been a LP premium customer for years. Can’t get by without it. The latest re-write of their chrome plugin is great as well.

    Started with LastPass earlier this year, and so very happy with it. The new chrome browser integration is great, not a premium customer, but the free one works just perfect for me!

    LastPass is not free man! the iOS app if free but it doesn’t work if you aren’t a lastpass premium customer, so its useless without premium subscription.
    but yeah the desktop browser plugins for chrome etc are free and work flawlessly!

    Glad to see they updated the look but I also switched to RoboForm following the multiple security breaches with LastPass over the past couple years and have never looked back. RoboForm has a much wider range of compatible browsers and devices plus they actually offer live phone support with a human where LastPass only has (pretty awful) email support.
