Yes! LastPass is safe to use. LastPass operates on a zero-knowledge security model. Sensitive data stored in LastPass is encrypted at the device level with military-grade AES-256 encryption to lock your secure vault. Only your master password can unlock the vault, and it’s never sent directly to them. According to the privacy policy, LastPass receives only the data that was already pre-encrypted on your local device. What is sent to their servers is only encrypted chunks of data. Even their developers cannot unencrypt it at will because of the additional hashing algorithm. It means that everything you store in LastPass is safe from external intrusions.
