Difference Between LastPass and 1Password

As a permanent visitor of the World Wide Web, you frequently visit so many websites that require you to enter your personal information into forms. Every time you sign up for a new website with your email ID or username, credit card information, or address for making online purchases, you waste a lot of time filling up all the details again and again. To reduce this repetitive typing behavior, you often choose to auto-fill forms and passwords as prompted by your web browser. Well, this is the digital age and nothing is actually secure these days.

Surely, you’ve heard a lot of stories about companies’ servers being hacked and confidential data being stolen by some hackers. As a contingency, the companies then ask their clients or users to reset their passwords. This is why you are always asked to choose a strong password for each of your online account, especially bank accounts. Password managers are built just for that purpose. And when it comes to password managers, the two names that probably pop into your head first are LastPass and 1Password.We take a look at the two password managers and point out the key differences between the two.

What is LastPass?

LastPass is recognized as a number one password manager supported by all major web browsers on all major operating systems out there. It also has great support for Android and iOS devices. Developed by LogMeIn, Inc., LastPass is an award-winning password manager that securely stores your personal information and encrypted passwords in a secure vault. It stores all your private information in an encrypted state and uses one master password to access that database. It stores everything in the cloud on the LastPass servers, and keeps track of everything, from your usernames and email IDs to passwords and auto form-filling information, and other setting. All this can be accessible with just a click.

What is 1Password?

Developed by AgileBits Inc., 1Password is yet another powerful password manager that allows you to generate, store, sync, and automatically fill in user IDs, passwords, credit card numbers, and other personal information. Like LastPass, 1Password works well with almost all major web browsers on all major platforms, including Android and iOS devices. 1Password can store other kinds of data, such as software licenses, passports, membership cards, licenses, and bank account numbers. In addition, it can securely store and sync virtually any document you want to be secured, such as a word document, a PDF file, or just anything with confidential data. Also, the 1Password’s user interface is far more user-friendly than almost every other password manager out there.

Difference between LastPass and 1Password


 – Both LastPass and 1Password are great password managers that allow you to store and sync all your personal information and passwords securely in one place. But the first thing that user notices when accessing the platform of any password manager is its user interface. Well, both the password managers have really good user interfaces, but 1Password’s UI is far more user-friendly and easier to navigate than LastPass’s. Both the tools are basically at the same level, but 1Password has a sleek, polished UI which is very organized, making it easy for new users to get their way around.


 – Security is the foremost priority of any password manager and fortunately, both 1Password and LastPass excel in providing the best security for your confidential data using the most advanced AES 256-bit encryption. However, one key difference between the two is that LastPass offers multi-factor authentication (MFA) using its own two-factor solution or other third-party solutions. 1Password, on the other hand, stores the data locally and only uses the cloud to sync the data across multiple devices.


– Another key distinction point between the two password managers is the pricing structure. While both the tools provide a neat pricing structure for individuals, families and business owners, LastPass is more cost-effective than 1Password because for one, it is the only one to provide a free version for any device you want. 1Password does not offer a free plan; instead, it offers a free 30-day trial period.

The Premium plan for LastPass costs $3 a month for one user and comes with 1GB of encrypted file storage. 1Password offers a cheaper individual plan with $2.99 a month. The LastPass Family plan offers more benefits for up to 6 users at $4 per month, while the 1Password Family plan costs you an additional $0.99 for a month for up to 5 users. While both of them offer comparable features, LastPass is more of a money saver compared to 1Password.
