Keeping up with passwords isn’t something that most people would consider fun. It can be difficult, stressful, and often feels like a wasted effort. The process of changing your password every time you login to a site can be tedious, and remembering a string of numbers and letters takes more brain power than most of us want to expend.
There’s a solution to all this: LastPass. This password manager will help you keep track of passwords and what sites they’re intended for. LastPass uses a master password or your fingerprint to identify you. After logging in to LastPass, you can view and edit your passwords and their associated sites, as well as your usernames and the website you’re accessing.
This is called the Vault. There’s also a section for you to keep notes and information for form-fills. LastPass has both a browser and security option so you can customize the application. For those of us who aren’t creative enough to come up with complicated passwords, or for individuals who want to make sure their passwords are extra secure, LastPass will even generate passwords for you.
LastPass Keeps Information Secure.
When you use LastPass, you can ensure that your passwords will be accessible as well as protected. The fact is that you probably don’t want to spend time remembering passwords. As a result, many of us end up writing down passwords in a notebook or in notes on a smartphone. This leaves them, and subsequently, their private information, unsecured, and easily available for anyone to take as.
In other cases, people reuse the same password they’ve had since they were in elementary school – this is dangerous. Using the same password just because it’s easy to remember isn’t safe. In fact, it makes it easier for hackers to gain access to a multitude of sites and platforms.
With LastPass, you can create more complex passwords and have access to as many passwords as you’d like. This means that your passwords can be strings of numbers, letters, and symbols, making them more secure and difficult to hack. Having the ability to save and create different passwords means that you can keep your information safe and protected.
Not only will LastPass save you the headache of trying to remember multiple passwords, but it will save you time as well with its autofill capabilities. This feature allows you to choose what information will be automatically filled in when you login to a site. This saves time because you won’t have to type out all the information or switch back and forth from LastPass to obtain the information that’s stored there.
Something that makes LastPass an especially user-friendly password bank is that it’s available not only from your browser but from your mobile device. With the LastPass app on your phone, tablet or another device, it’s accessible at all times and provides the mobility you need.
The cherry on top? LastPass is a free application.
LastPass will help you keep your information accessible as well as secure. With cybercrime on the rise, it’s more important than ever to keep your accounts totally secured, which means using a strong password that others can’t access. LastPass allows you to store as many passwords for as many sites as you want, bringing with it the freedom and security you need.
