I recently realized a gross inefficiency in my life: managing my LastPass vault.
You’ll no doubt know of LastPass, the excellent cross-platform password manager:
LastPass remembers your passwords so that you can focus on the more important things in life.
It’s a wonderful tool and I love it dearly. However, it’s a tale of two experiences for me. When it comes to auto-logging-in to websites (LastPass’ original, intended purpose) it works beautifully; however, when it comes to copying passwords/usernames/etc. out of the vault (for, say, the purpose of pasting them into applications that don’t support a LastPass integration, like nearly every iOS app), it’s a pain.
The pain comes from the fact that I have to:
- open my browser.
- click on the LastPass extension.
- enter my master password.
- click on the extension again.
- search for my site.
- copy my desired info.
The amount of friction is nauseating. Therefore, I set out to build something better.
