How does LastPass store non Internet passwords?

Postby montanieers » Thu Jan 10, 2013 6:46 pm

How can I store basic info like application serial numbers, creating custom fields, etc.? It seems that LastPass is only oriented in saving URL password info but I need to store non-Internet things too... for example, the combo for my gym lock... LOL... I know I should remember but I do forget from time to time...

Thanks... I seriously want to make LastPass my final security application after many other apps have failed (HandySafe, SplahID, etc.)

I'm using lastpass' 'Secure Note' feature. There are some Secure Note templates for specific purposes, but there is also a generic one. It can store free text, which I find sufficient in many cases - no need for custom fields. if needed, I use something like this as a free text, for example:

Secure Note Name: S/N: headset 01
S/N: 8791347AK98
Model: AM789
Mnf: LetsSayItsBose

Or:

Secure Note Name: Door: Lab
unarm: 6789*1
arm: 6789*2

So far this works for me. Note, the beginning like "S/N:" (stands for 'serial number' here) or "Door:" in the Secure Note 'name' field allows me to search for a specific types of Secure Notes; e.g. if I'm looking for locks, or doors, I'd search for 'Door' and the relevant secure notes should be listed as a result.

It can also store attachments, that I find useful in some cases (add a small image of something, or add a router configuration backup file). A Secure Note can also be additionally protected with the 'master password required' option if desired, which might be useful in case of very sensitive information.

That's helpful... thanks... I like the Secure Note file attachment feature... a custom form filler would be a nice improvement, though.

I keep the combo for my gym padlock in a secure note as well.
