LastPass is a popular solution for keeping all of your passwords secure and in one place.
“Secure” and “in one place” do not always go hand in hand. The idea behind LastPass is to create one very strong password only you know, and this password will be the login to your account that unlocks all your other passwords. The key is to create one very good password.
Good passwords are at least 16 characters in length, they include lowercase and uppercase letters, they include numbers and symbols, and they are not guessable. Make it random gibberish then memorize it.
When you setup LastPass and your main password, you can begin integrating all your other passwords into the app: bank accounts, social networks, email, and much more.
LastPass can be downloaded as an extension to your web browser. As of now, they include extensions for the web browsers Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. This means you use your web browser to access your passwords. This works offline too. As long as you have logged into your LastPass account once, your data is cached, meaning saved locally, and you can you use passwords offline.
LastPass is definitely a cool tool to check out. Passwords can easily become numerous these days between private credentials like credit card and bank accounts to personal accounts like Pinterest or YouTube. If you hope to keep your passwords secure but also handy, LastPass could be your new password manager.
