LastPass native app for Mac works just like the browser add-ons

if you’re on Mac and still stuck using passwords you should never, ever use (come on, man, it’s 2015 — time to move on from “password” and “123456”), LastPass might be able to help you out. The password manager now has a native Mac app, though truthfully, it’s not much different from its browser add-ons. It also stores log-ins and passwords, and it comes with a vault where you can organize and edit your info. But, it does have a handful of minor yet useful new features, like hot keys for quick search of log-in credentials/websites as well as the capability to analyze your passwords’ strength in real time. Don’t bother digging up your old LastPass installer for browsers, though: if you want this new Mac app, you’ll have to get it from iTunes for free with ads. You can, however, pay $12 per year to get access to premium features, including offline access to your logins and multifactor authentication.
