LastPass

If like many people you struggle to remember passwords for websites, this tool is the solution. LastPass is a popular and free password manager that goes beyond just remembering passwords. It also acts as a form filler, password generator, and can even securely manage your credit cards, speeding up your online shopping.

Nowadays, with the high number of security breaches online, it is vitally important to have passwords that are strong and difficult to guess. Of course, most people use easy to remember words, such as those found in the dictionary. While convenient, using basic words can lead to all kinds of security issues. This is where a password manager can help you stay secure and safe when browsing the Web.

LastPass will suggest highly secure passwords and remember them for each site you visit. The software seamlessly integrates with all popular browsers (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, FireFox, etc.) and is user-friendly, so you needn’t be technically savvy to enjoy all the benefits. All stored login details can be accessed in a central location called the “Vault”. Here, you can add, remove and edit passwords and usernames as you see fit.

Another handy feature of LastPass is the ability to store multiple addresses and credit card details. This can be done by using the “Secure Notes” feature and is ideal for saving time when browsing through your favourite online stores.

A commercial version of the program called LastPass Premium is also available and has the ability to synchronise login data across all your devices: desktop computer, mobile and tablet, so all your login information is kept up-to-date, regardless of how many compatible gadgets you have.

For saving time and increasing computer security, we highly recommend LastPass. Setting up the program only takes a few moments, and you’ll be glad you did. In fact, you may wonder how you ever lived without it. If you need more functionality, upgrades are available, but for personal non-commercial use, LastPass is completely free to download. Go get it now!
