If you are like me you get tired of trying to remember and save all your different password login information. How does anyone really remember all their different email, social media, banking, entertainment, credit card, medical account and list goes on login information? I know I can’t, but I found a solution that I have been using for the past few years and my family loves it!
In the past, I had all my passwords and login names written down on a folded piece of paper I kept hidden in my office. Do you do the same now or use the same passwords for everything you use online? I hope you don’t use the same password. That is a huge security flaw. If someone cracks one account, they will then have access to all your accounts!
What I use now is called LastPass. It enables you to only need to know one password. Hence their name “Last Pass” … get it? Clever right. It saves all your account login details in one place that you can easily access from your laptop, smartphone and tablet.
They have apps for Android, iPhone and your internet browser. Once you are logged in, you can set LastPass to prompt auto filling for all the websites you visit. I personally don’t know how much easier it gets than that.
LastPass does more than just save password information though. You can use it to keep digital records like memberships, insurance information, driver licenses, and more. You can save your online shopping profiles for an easier, no typing checkout process. If you have a family, like I do, you can set it to share your passwords with each other’s profiles too.
LastPass can audit your password strengths and scan for duplicate account login details. It will make your online logins more secure by helping you get unique logins for every account you have. Don’t worry LastPass uses AES-256 bit encryption with PBKDF2 SHA-256 and salted hashes to ensure complete security in the cloud.
In laymen terms that means your data is encrypted and decrypted at the device level. Data stored in your LastPass vault is kept completely secret,… even from LastPass. Your master password, and the keys used to encrypt and decrypt data, are never sent to LastPass servers, and are never accessible by LastPass.
If you are getting to your limit of memorizing all your different login details I would advise you to check it out for yourself. I have personally used them for years and it has only made my online life much easier to manage. They have a FREE plan and a nominal $12 a year plan. See for yourself by Visit LastPass.
