Every application has different features and privacy statements. Instead of believing what others say about LastPass privacy statements, why don’t you look at it yourself? Have a quick look to it :

Your privacy is critically important to us. LastPass has a few guiding principles:

  • We don’t allow you to send LastPass critically important information like your usernames, passwords, account notes, and LastPass master password; instead your LastPass master password is used locally to encrypt the important data that’s sent to us so that no one, including LastPass employees ever can access it.
  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services. (For example: If you choose to store login history, we keep login history, if you choose not to, we don’t)
