Secure passwords made easy

One of the weakest areas in any website, WordPress websites included, tends to be the password. Of course, as a professional, it’s easy for me to tell clients that their password should be secure. But it can be a pain to keep track of all those passwords!

Enter LastPass.

LastPass is a safe place to store unlimited passwords. All you have to remember is your LastPass password, and it keeps the rest of them locked up and easy to find in the password manager.

LastPass integrates with Android, iPhone, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Microsoft Edge. In most cases, it will automatically fill in forms for you, so you don’t even have to copy and paste.

After you first install LastPass, visit a website and log in. It will then ask if you want to store that password. The next time you go to that site, you can have it fill in the form automatically! You can even store multiple login credentials, in case you log into a website under multiple accounts.

And when creating new accounts online, LastPass will generate and store a highly secure password for you. You never even need to know your passwords!

By logging into your password manager on the LastPass website, you can view all the sites you’ve saved login info for and categorize them for a simple, easy method of organization.

In addition to passwords, LastPass will also store secure notes and other digital records for you. You can also keep your payment and shipping information in there for handy automated filling of forms when shopping online.

Perhaps best of all, LastPass has a great free option for personal use. And that’s not free for 30 days, it’s free forever. Or you can pay $1 a month and get some additional options.

And if you run a business or non-profit, LastPass is still pretty affordable. At the time of this writing, there were a couple different options, both of which were less than $5 a month per user. And one of those options does have a free trial.

So if all your passwords are the same, or you’re just having trouble remembering them, it’s time to sign up for LastPass!
