Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life
With more and more aspects of both business and personal life becoming digital, your online security is increasingly critical. That means stronger, more secure passwords (no more “password” passwords). But how do you remember those complicated jumbles of letters, numbers and symbols without resorting to writing them down? That’s where Lastpass comes in. This handy app requires you to remember one password – the one you use to log in to the app. After that, it stores and recalls all of your passwords so you can continue your digital doings with peace of mind. The best part? You can use Lastpass on multiple computers, and add it onto your smartphone with a premium account. Hackers don’t stand a chance.
