That’s because the password is encrypted. If you use LastPass to share passwords, only the people sharing the password have access to it because they are the only ones with their master password to log in to their password vaults and decrypt that information.
Share one login or many
No matter how many logins need to be shared, LastPass makes it easy to share credentials with others.
Every user gets their own unique LastPass account, where they can generate, store, manage, protect, and share their passwords. With Families as a Benefit, your family is empowered to secure and access your personal credentials – at no cost to you.
They’ll click “Accept Shared Data” in the email from LastPass, and will be granted access to the shared password after logging in to their LastPass account, or creating one if they aren’t account holders yet.
When you invite an existing LastPass user (Free or Premium) to join your LastPass Families account, all of their stored Sites, Secure Notes, Form Fills, and settings will be automatically transferred upon joining. Each family members’ Vault remains separate from each other.
The link can only be opened once. This ensures nobody has opened it before the recipient and nobody can open it again afterwards. The encrypted secret is deleted from our database when it has been viewed. There’s no way to view it again.
Security: Both are secure, but 1Password is more transparent. LastPass beats 1Password hands-down on one important security perk — password generation. While both have random password generators, LastPass spits out stronger passwords more quickly than 1Password with a one-click process.
You can use LastPass on an unlimited number of devices for a single device type – using LastPass on either all computers or all mobile devices – and rely on LastPass to sync your Vault data to that device type for an unlimited number of devices.
You can combine two LastPass Free and/or Premium accounts by exporting your Vault contents from one account and importing it into another account. Once the Vault items have been migrated, you can cancel the subscription (if applicable) and delete the account that is no longer in use.
Hover over the name of the file or folder and click the share icon (rectangle with an up arrow). In the popup, click Settings. Click either Link for editing or Link for viewing depending on which link you’d like to limit access to. Next to Who has access, select Team members from the dropdown menu.
Is it safe? Yes, assuming you trust them not to forward or share the link with anyone you don’t want to have access. Hi Jane, “Anyone with the link” literally means anyone with the link can access the file you’re sharing.
Open the PDF and choose Tools > Protect > Encrypt > Encrypt with Password. If you receive a prompt, click Yes to change the security. Select Require a Password to Open the Document, then type the password in the corresponding field.
Gmail is capable of encrypting the email it sends and receives, but only when the other email provider supports TLS encryption. In other words, encrypting 100% of all email on the Internet requires the cooperation of all online mail providers.
The short answer is no—a One-Time Secret is not a good password manager alternative. One-Time Secret doesn’t solve the problem of password sharing. You’re still sharing raw credentials over a messaging service. You don’t know where the recipient will save the password or who might see it!
To use One-Time Secret, visit its Web site, paste the relevant password from your password manager into the “Secret content goes here” field, and press the Create A Secret Link button. Copy the link that’s generated, and send it to your recipient.
Keeper ($20.98 per year for Tom’s Guide readers) is fast and full-featured, has a robust web interface, stores files and documents of any kind, offers perhaps the best security of any password manager and has a premium service cheaper than both Dashlane and LastPass.
