An alternative way to manage and secure your passwords
- Allows you to configure a password to work across multiple platforms and PC's
- Uses SSL and RSA encryption
- Requires registration online
- Could severely compromise security if password lost
Managing passwords is a difficult and sometimes stressful ordeal if you've got hundreds of different ones for various sites but LastPass makes life that bit easier.
LastPass is a free password manager for Firefox and Chrome that makes your web browsing easier and more secure by bringing everything under one password. LastPass can create strong passwords that protect all sites, meaning that logging into your favorite browser, network or secure network becomes a one-step affair.
LastPass is particularly useful for those that want to work together securely in different locations because it allows you share credentials to log in via LastPass.
Of course, the big concern is security - if your LastPass password is lost or obtained by someone else, it makes everything protected under it vulnerable. However, it does use SSL and RSA encryption so it is unlikely your password would be hacked easily.
LastPass is a great way to manage passwords under one umbrella without worrying about remembering the access credentials to them all.
