Do you find it hard to keep track of your passwords? Or even know how to create a secure password?
With so many different online services now an integral part of our digital lives which require sensitive financial and personal data, it’s important to use strong and ideally more than just one password to stay secure.
At Brandicoot we use LastPass which is a password manager application. It’s free on the web and has a browser plug-in which also syncs your data to any computer that you use regularly and fills in your forms securely. All your data is first encrypted locally with 256-bit AES and then saved remotely in the cloud so only you can access it anywhere, anytime.
LastPass has a wide selection of devices and platforms it supports. The basic version of LastPass works on Windows (2000/XP/Vista/7), Linux and Mac, with the premium version adding support for Blackberry and Windows Mobile devices. Support for iPhone is also on its way.
If you are in need of a way to securely store multiple passwords, and have them accessible at all times as you move between workplaces we recommend LastPass.
