If you struggle with managing all your passwords, use the same password on multiple sites, keep passwords in a file on your computer or on a piece of paper, need to share passwords with co-workers, or routinely deal with sensitive information on non-Swarthmore sites, you may want to consider using the LastPass password manager service.
We all have dozens of passwords and it can be a challenge to keep track of them and ensure that each password is high quality and unique. LastPass is a service that makes it easier to generate a different secure password for each site and fill in the password automatically when needed. ITS has purchased LastPass accounts for all employees. In addition to a work account, LastPass provides a free personal account for employees.
- automatically generate high quality, unique passwords
- use a browser extension or phone app to autofill passwords in your browser or app
- securely share passwords and other secure information with co-workers, making it easy to update a password as needed
