LastPass is a password manager that lets you store all of your web browser passwords in one place — and access them from anywhere. The first time you run the desktop version of LastPass, it will allow you to import all of the existing passwords from Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Safari. Then you can either access your passwords by logging into the LastPass web site or by using a browser plugin.

The basic service is free and I find it really comes in handy if I want to access my passwords on a second or third computer. Instead of creating easy to remember passwords like “password,” LastPass will let you generate secure passwords and access them on multiple devices without having to remember them.

The company also offers a line of mobile apps which you can use by signing up for a Premium account at $12 per year. I’ve been using the Dolphin HD browser plugin for Android for a few months and it works great. There’s also an app that works with the Android browser and apps for iPhone, BlackBerry and Symbian. And a few days ago LastPass launched an app for Windows Phone 7.

The Windows Phone 7 app lets you view web pages in your “vault” and launch them in an embedded web browser or view your saved data. Right now there’s no way to use the default Windows Phone browser, and autofill only works on web sites which use javascript. There’s also currently no way to add new sites or passwords or change your data — but future versions of the app may support those features.

Lastpass for Windows Phone 7 is available as a free download from the Marketplace. You get a 14 day free trial before you have to pay $12/year to continue using the service.
