Why you need to get your passwords in one place
Hmm, why wouldn’t you want your passwords in one place? We recommend to all of our customers to cease password spreadsheets immediately and get your passwords stored in the cloud – sounds counter-intuitive when you think of security, but let us explain: if you lose your computer or device, a spreadsheet is easily readable and replicated. With a secured password tool, your passwords are encrypted, and password protected on all of your devices, meaning you have access anywhere and, if you lose a device, you can rest easy knowing no one can access your data.
Here’s what we include
Put simply, LastPass keeps all of your passwords in one place. You create one master login and LastPass takes care of the rest, saving all of your passwords (and more) in a single database that you can search on the go from any mobile device or from your Google Chrome browser on any computer. This is another great example of how Google Apps for Work is a lifesaver – if you’re logged into Google Chrome on your work computer with your primary work email address, you can link in your LastPass account as an extension right in the browser and replicate the same setup on all devices. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
New passwords are saved instantaneously, meaning if you’ve saved a new password as you’re running out the office door, you can easily access it from your mobile device to set up apps on your phone or log into websites in the Google Chrome app. By segmenting your passwords, cards and other important information into folders, you can easily review all of your stored information. For security reasons, this is a big pro – if you’re not using a site anymore, you may as well close down your account. LastPass gives you a clear picture of what you’ve set up and when you last used the site so that you can truly get flow in your digital life.
