Did you know creating a secure password is more important today than it was in the last two decades?
Hackers are becoming more sophisticated and have more powerful computers to hack your online accounts.
They can use several methods to get into your account from brute force attempts to stealing your passwords via Wi-Fi.
The whole purpose of the program LastPass is to make it more difficult for these folks to get into your account, which will protect you from 95%+ of hackers (I totally made that number up, but I think it’s true).
The program also stores your login user names, so it makes it one simple click to log into a website.
I remember working for a company who had use make secure passwords and constantly change them every month. Needless to say, most of us were resetting our passwords and wasting IT’s time with the stupid passwords.
LastPass acts as a central area to your passwords, where you can generate really secure passwords no one would ever guess in one million years. They might guess in two million years though.
If someone gets into one of your business accounts, lets say, business banking, they can send out checks to tons of locations and people. Banks are notoriously bad at letting you know or stopping people from even charging your account via checking account numbers.
