Don't know any deals for LastPas, but have a look at BitWarden, same sort of functionality but quite a bit cheaper. Pretty sure you can import from LP to BitWarden too.

Thanks for the heads-up re: Bitwarden

I've been looking to ditch LastPass premium for a while now mainly due to it's lackluster Android app. I've been using BW for the past hour and it's so good I've disabled LP on my phone and PC!

My only concern with BitWarden is it’s not really “mum” friendly. I considered it, but the recovery aspects of LP are what kept me there because I’m the account recovery for mums vault, which I had to use recently.

BW I would say is more secure, because of it, but doesn’t lend itself to “user friendliness” for forgetful people.

Yip heard of it & tested it previously. Michael Bazzell from Intel Techniques recommends Bitwarden as well.

 

Unfortunately, right now & for the next several weeks, I have to concentrate on other things first. Testing, learning & WAF require me to make the transition smooth & painless. So it's stick with the 👹 you know.

This is interesting. Why is BW more secure?

 

Lastpass was hacked some time ago and not one password was leaked. That is pretty secure imo.
