How many times do you have to submit a lost password request when trying to log into a website or app? Or consult a convoluted list of passwords? Or have your list of passwords somewhere entirely insecure?
Certain relatives of mine have a tattered small spiral notebook complete with a load of sticky notes with passwords written on it. Not only is this not secure (most of the family knows exactly where it is), it’s not with them when they are out and about.
After far too much time and headache, I broke down and started using LastPass. I wish I had done it sooner.
If I could shout from the rooftops just how much this has revolutionized my life, I would.
Go register for LastPass right now!
Seriously, go out and register for this right now. I used the free version for a few years before I realized the time I was wasting when I didn’t have access to my passwords on my phone was ridiculous. Especially when the price tag to upgrade to Premium and have access on my phone is a mere $12 per year.

Top 4 features of LastPass:
- Only one password to remember (make sure you know it well though, there’s no way to recover it).
- Automatically generate crazy-long passwords that meet any random criteria (I’m looking at you, ridiculous requirements for one uppercase letter, one lower case letter, one number, three extra symbols)
- Ability to share passwords with someone else without giving them the actual password – and to lock out access when you’re done. If you do any work with clients or vendors online, you know how huge this is. When helping out blogging friends online, this is a great way to hop right into their website, etc without worrying about password security.
- It’s secure! The technical bit is a little over my head, but it’s top of the line security, and LastPass gives you all sorts of notifications if you duplicate passwords, have a password that’s not very secure, etc.
Have you used LastPass or another password manager? Why or why not?
