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.
