LastPass Now Notifies You When An Account Is Comprimised

LastPass is a great tool that completely manages all of your account passwords, secure notes and even personal details like credit card information. It’s massively powerful and I would literally be lost without it. I wrote an article all about LastPass a few months ago, this should tell you everything you need to know about LastPass if you don’t know already.

The awesome service that LastPass provides has now got one step better. I’m sure most of you have heard about the recent security breaches that have taken place, with companies such as LinkedIn and Dropbox. This isn’t a major problem as long as you are quick on the uptake and change your password ASAP. Unfortunately though, most people don’t trawl the internet for ‘interesting’ pages like this to read so they may not know until it’s too late.

LastPass has teamed up with PwnedList to offer their new service – Sentry. PwnedList is an aggregated list of compromised passwords and online accounts. LastPass then correlate this information and if any of it matches the email address attached to your LastPass account then it will immediately notify you so that you can pre-emptively change your password for that account.

LastPass Sentry is now enabled for all LastPass accounts (both premium and free) but you can opt-out of it if you like. Why anyone would though is beyond me. LastPass is an awesome system and I would strongly recommend that if you don’t have an account already then head of and open a free account right now.

Do you think this is a good addition to LastPass? Tell us why in the comments section…
