Is LastPass Premium Product the same as Webroot's Secure Anywhere Password Product?
I have a premium account for LastPass and a Premium account for Webroot Secure Anywhere. Now that these two companies have come together within the product known as Webroot Secure Anywhere should I when it comes to renewal of my Lastpass account let it lapse and then take up the offer of using LassPass within Webroot Secure Anywhere? Also is the LastPass product within Secure Anywhere the same as the LastPass Premium product that I already have?

Welcome to the Webroot Community,
Please have a look at this interesting Thread. https://community.webroot.com/webroot-secureanywhere-complete-14/lastpass-337932#post342154
I do not know the difference between LastPass Premium and the Secure Anywhere LastPass Premium.
I also do not know how long the Webroot Cloud will keep your Webroot Passwords located in the Online Account Console. Which is a afterthought and I have never thought to ask.
Whether to let your LastPass Premium lapse and transition over to WSA LastPass could be answered by Submitting a Support Ticket to Webroot or better yet LastPass Support.
Let me ping
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Webroot & LastPass have 'not come together' in any new way than before. Rather, the change is that Webroot is no longer providing a 'built in' Password Manager as they did before (and that was actually based on an old version of LastPass which is no longer support by LastPass), but instead your Webroot subscription for Internet Security Plus or Complete versions of WRSA now entitles you to a LastPass Premium subscription, giving you access to the latest version of LastPass but with your password data now held by LastPass rather than Webroot as previously.
So, when it comes to renewal of your Lastpass subscription it would make sense to let in lapse given that you would be paying twice for the same functionality, the same storage, etc.
It would make sense to avail yourself of the LastPass subscription via Webroot given that you would have nothing further to pay as the cost is already covered ion your Webroot subscription
The only things to bear in mind are (I) once you stop subscribing to Webroot for Complete or Internet Security Plus version of WRSA then you will effective lose access to LastPass unless you take out a new subscription directly with them & (ii) when you subscribe to LastPass via the Webroot offer the process will transfer your Webroot password data to LastPass, expecting that you use the same email address to set up a NEW LastPass account.
In other words, if your current LastPass account is based on the same email address as the Webroot Password Manager then you will need to delete the LastPass account (so losing all of your data unless you extract it first & then reload it after the transfer) first, & get LastPass to reset the account in the back office (easy to do by opening up a LastPass support ticket).
This is what happened to me & that is what I had to do...but after finding that out everything is tickety boo...and by the time that you come to get the LastPass subscription via Webroot they may have a way of handling person like yourself with a Premium subscription for both.
And for that reason I would contact LastPass support, as and when, explain the situation and see what they suggest as the best way to proceed.
Hope that helps?
The new Password Manager included with Webroot SecureAnywhere 'Internet Security' and 'Complete' versions is , as others have stated, the Premium version of LastPass. The differences between the Free, Premium, and Families versions of LastPass are as follows...
Again, Thanks to everyone who took part in this discussion and maybe it will also help others who are like me that have Premium Membership of these two great apps
I have paid subscriptions to full versions of both LastPass and Webroot, so I’m no sure what you mean? LastPass provided no support contacts even after I paid for the full version and WebRoot said they do not support LastPass. For years, l told everyone I knew that WebRoot was the best security and anti-malware SW there was and provided wonderful support, but ever since LastPass, browsing and security have been a nightmare!
celz1357 yes I would agree with you regarding LastPass. So when it came to the update for Webroot I just renewed Webroot and will probably just drop LastPass and not renew it and just leave Bitwarden as my password manager. It is free and it seems to be doing a very good job plus the recent update to LastPass is in my opinion not user-friendly.
I don’t know whether or not the coming together of LastPass and Webroot was a great idea for the customer ….maybe a good idea for the shareholders but for nobody else. I think both services have suffered in this merger.
