I'm willing to bet anyone reading this has forgotten a password a time of two. We belong to so many different websites nowadays that require passwords. It truly is impossible to remember them all.
Fortunately, there is a better way than writing them down on post-its or in a notebook or piece of paper.
I recently was helping a customer at their home and they required a password. They proceeded to go through post-it notes, torn pieces of paper, napkins, etc. I suggested they use a program called LastPass. It’s a subscription that will store your passwords and fill them in for you, so you don’t have to worry about another post-it note again.
HOW HARD IS IT TO SET UP?
It’s pretty easy to set up and use. You just need to install an extension on your web browser. When it knows you logging into a site, it asks if you want to add that site’s username and password to it. The next time you go to log in, it fills it in for you! It will also hold any of your credit cards, addresses, and bank information if you choose to do so.
WHAT OTHER METHODS OR PROGRAMS DO YOU RE
I personally use LastPass, but only to store my passwords. I can even share my passwords with my spouse and they can with me. There are other programs that do the same thing. Your web browser will hold your password information if you let it. Many times, Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc. will ask if you want to save your password. The only problem is that the browser password managers are not as secure. It’s very easy to go into Windows Settings and get this information. So, using a subscription-like LastPass is much safer. There is always the potential for a data breach, but LastPass and other subscriptions are constantly updating their software to keep your data safe.
