Password-manager specialist LastPass has released LastPass 3.1.50, a major new version of its cross-platform tool for securely storing online passwords in the cloud.

Version 3.1.50 comes with one new feature, which sees the tool now capable of automatically suggesting a folder name for putting newly saved popular sites into folders for better organisation. It also comes with various improvements and tighter security.

Security enhancements see more secure web filling by changing http to https saved URLs. CSP rules have been tightened and LastPass disallows the filling of iframes if the frame's domain is different to the top page domain.

The update, which spans most popular web browsers, also comes with the promise of an improved Create Account Wizard when used in Chrome or Safari.

Other enhancements cover the first time overlay and Vault overview pages when the user hasn’t added any data. Also updated is the user interface of the online security challenge.

One notable bug fix stops LastPass from being able to utilise large amounts of CPU resources when setting up fingerprint authentication.

LastPass 3.1.50 is available now free for supported Windows, Linux and Mac browsers. Premium users also gain access to LastPass through their mobile devices, with apps for iPhone and iPad and Android among other platforms.
