The passwords we use online are one vital layer of security that prevent identity theft, data theft, account hijacking, and theft of our very real money. The best passwords are at least 12 characters, no actual words (with at least 1 capital letter, 1 number, and 1 special character), and unique - meaning we never use the same password for the different sites we log into. These numerous gibberish passwords are, of course, impossible to memorize which is where password managers come in. Password managers like LastPass (which I have used for years) generate, encrypt, and store all of our passwords and automatically type them for us on the websites we frequent. We only need to know 1 password: the Master Password which unlocks the password manager. For help with setting up LastPass, just Contact Me.
