What’s New

Free Demo Now Available

OVERLAPS now has a free demo version available for you to try-before-you-buy.

The demo is feature-limited, rather than time-limited, but is perfect for checking that it works with your LAPS/Active Directory environment.

Sparkly New Interface

We’ve updated our frontend frameworks and overhauled the entire OverLAPS interface. Say goodbye to the basic-and-functional and hello to the new-and-improved look.

By focusing on usability and responsive design principals, we’ve made it so that your LAPS managed local admin passwords are even easier to access whether you’re at your desk or on the move

Improved Accessibility

As we want all of our customers to get the same great experience, we’ve taken steps to improve accessibility by following A11Y standards to produce a cleaner, more easily readable interface, with important keyboard navigation options.

Computer Search

Our most requested new feature, you can now quickly and easily search for computers by name or description instead of having to browse through Active Directory for them, saving you time and effort when looking up passwords.

Batch Operations

Searching for computers and getting all of their Local Administrator passwords with one click

If you need to get the current passwords for multiple computers at once you don’t need to select each of them one-by-one anymore, now you can click a button and get all of their passwords in one quick operation.

Easier Access to Settings

We’ve taken the most common OverLAPS settings and made them available to change through the interface itself, so no more having to mess about in XML files.

How to get it

The updated installed will appear in the download section for existing customers from today.

New customer? No problem. Just head over to the OverLAPS website and place your order today.

What’s next?

You may notice that the website still refers to, and uses screenshots from, version 1.0. This will be updated in the coming weeks to reflect the new OverLAPS user interface.

In addition to this, we are currently working on making a demonstration version of OverLAPS available for those that want to try out the interface for themselves before buying. This version will operate as so-called “disableware” where certain core features will be non-functional for the purposes of the trial.
