How to Manage Multiple Passwords with LastPass
Are you a member of bazillion password protected sites? Have you ever locked yourself out of any one of those digital accounts because of the various reasons, like forgetting your password, saving-it-somewhere-and losing-it or getting hacked on setting a standard password for all your accounts? If you’ve been through all this, you’re certainly not alone!
Don’t we over-rely on our busy brain to save all these “little pieces of information” safely for us. Wouldn’t it be great if we let our mind does its thinking job peacefully without giving it a burden of becoming our information storehouse?
A tool called LastPass let me do the same. I love the freedom it gives me and also its super safe functionality that allows me to access my accounts in all the devices with total ease.
LastPass – Password Management Service
Tool Name: LastPass
What is it?
LastPass is a password management service that stores encrypted passwords in private accounts.
What exactly does it do?
It gives you a secure vault to put all your passwords safe. You lock this vault with a master password. You need to remember this one password only, and LastPass remembers the rest!
Also, If your team members / virtual business managers manage your sites/accounts for you, you can allow them access to your accounts without sharing your passwords with them. You can revoke the privileges once the job is over.
How does it do it?
It stores all your password in an encrypted version for double safety reasons. ” Data stored in your vault is kept secret, even from LastPass. Your master password and the keys used to encrypt and decrypt data are never sent to LastPass’ servers, and are never accessible by LastPass“.

You can make your free account and check its wonderfully safe features. You can also download it as your browser extension.
Next, whenever you make a new account in any new site or log-in to an already existing account, LastPass promptly ask you if you want to save it in your vault.
When you wish to open any application, open your vault and launch the application from there itself without rewriting your ID & password. You can also access its premium services by referring it to friends. Once your friend accepts the offer, you get a free upgrade for a month.
Even if you don’t choose to upgrade, the free account itself is a considerable contribution if you have multiple online accounts.
