Simply, securely share passwords with family and friends
LastPass supports secure sharing with other users, so it’s easy to safely share passwords to friends and family – no need to share it by text message, Instagram DM, or WhatsApp. LastPass Premium supports sharing with one other LastPass user at a time, while LastPass Families allows sharing with as many LastPass users as you like.
Google Password manager and iCloud Keychain do not support or offer password sharing. The two only share passwords to the browser application. You’re thus forced to share your passwords through unsecure methods, putting your cybersecurity at serious risk.
Different LastPass plans provide you with more sophisticated password sharing options. For example, with LastPass Families plan you can even manage and share passwords by folders. So you can share a folder called “streaming passwords” with your household while only sharing the “banking and credit informations” folder with your spouce.

Additional, advanced layers of security
LastPass users can secure their acounts further if they want to, placing more unbreakable roadblocks between their data and bad actors.
All LastPass tiers have access to multifactor authentication (MFA), which adds additional checkpoints prior to accessing the vault to ensure data is truly locked down. Users can utilize the LastPass Authenticator app or additional 3rd-party authentication methods.
In contrast, Google Chrome and iOS users can implement two-factor authentication (2FA), but they can only do so with their built-in authenticator, so their security options are limited.
LastPass paid subscribers also get access to advanced MFA options, which include biometrics (fingerprint scan) and 3rd-party hardware keys, like YubiKey. Users can establish either of these advanced MFA methods to further secure their account against anyone who isn’t them.
Your data is kept separate and safe
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. With Google and iCloud, you’re placing all of your personal data in one place. If someone hacks your Chrome or Mac/iOS devices, they can easily get access to the rest of your information – email, calendar, file storage, sensitive documents, photos – as well as your passwords.
LastPass keeps your environments separated. We only handle your passwords and sensitive data you store. Anything your store is securely encrypted, available and visible only to you.
And by extending your LastPass Master Password to passwordless, where you use your biometric info (fingerprint) as a Master Password, you remove the obstacles between you and the sites stored in your vault, while still keeping them secure.
