All sensitive user data is encrypted and decrypted locally on the user’s machine, so that only encrypted sensitive information is ever synced with LastPass, according to LastPass they can never access your passwords, and your master password is never shared with LastPass. There are other competitions out there on the web, but LastPass surpass the ability to be straight forward, reliability, ease of use, watch tutorial videos in action, and bulk of useful information (user’s manual).
