Passwords Part 1 - Password Managers

Passwords.  We all have them, but we don't always remember them. Creating and maintaining passwords can be a real pain. Websites all seem to have different requirements for password complexity and length, neither of which make it any easier to remember. Many people take advantage of the built-in password manager in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to help keep track of all their different passwords. This can be a great tool for keeping track of them but the task of creating a reasonably complex password is still your responsibility.


There are, of course, programs/extensions that can come to your rescue. The one I use is called LastPass which is available for free from lastpass.com or, if you want to get access on your mobile phone, you can pay $12 per year for the LastPass Premium Subscription. You can then install it as a browser extension in your preferred browser.


When you want to make a new password you can have LastPass generate a long complex one which it will remember for you. Your passwords are also encrypted end-to-end, so only you can access them when you enter your master password. The master password is then, effectively, the ‘last pass’ you have to remember. Another benefit of this method is that you will always have drastically different passwords for each site you visit. This means that if that site is compromised you are not in danger of any of your other accounts being accessed.
