New Features in LastPass to Focus on Family Digital Life

The LastPass family is about to get bigger. Coming your way this summer, we’re excited to announce LastPass Families that will make it easy to manage your family’s digital life. The LastPass Families addition is just one more way we’re delivering a faster, simpler, and more intuitive password manager for all our users.

When it comes to keeping your loved ones safe online, recent research found that 91% of people feel that having a strong password allows them to protect their family better. We’ve seen this reflected in your requests for more shared folders and the ability to buy and manage licenses on behalf of others. We also know it’s a growing challenge to keep track of all your family’s information online: healthcare provider logins, school passwords, streaming media accounts. What worked 10 years ago, even five, just doesn’t cut it anymore.

Enter LastPass Families, where you can store everything from bank accounts to passports to credit cards. Your details are secure, organized the way you want, and easily shared with your spouse, kids, in-laws, and more. You can even give access to others in the event of an emergency. The family manager can quickly add and remove members to the account, making it easy to get everyone up and running.
