LastPass The Ultimate Free Application For Password Management

LastPass The Ultimate Free Application For Password Management- Sassy Townhouse Living

We have tried everything from saving them in notebooks to word documents and yet saving passwords is enough to send a sane person over the edge. Well, here is a surefire way of never having to deal with password issues ever again with LastPass!

I think we can all agree, storing passwords on our computers can drive us batty. 

I don’t know what my computer experience would be like without LastPass, as I can’t imagine not having access to it. Gone are the days of fumbling around with notebooks or documents I forgot to update. LastPass has changed that all for me. 

Below, you can see the statistics for how folks are choosing to store passwords. Pretty sad indeed. Can you believe the “memory” stats? That’s crazy town for sure! Before we get into the setup and installation, I want to share with you some of the scary statistics on password management.

Look at these statistics!

  • 61% of people reuse the same password on multiple websites.
  • 76% of 18 to 24-year-old consumers admit to reusing passwords – more than any other age group.
  • 44% of consumers change their password only once a year or less.
  • 89% of consumers feel secure with their current password management and use habits.

It takes only 10 minutes to crack a lowercase password that is 6 characters long. Add 2 extra letters and a few uppercase letters and that number jumps to 3 years. Add just one more character and some numbers and symbols and it will take 44,530 years to crack. Think of how unsafe your data is using these passwords that are commonly used.

LastPass generates safe and secure passwords for you or you can choose your own and LastPass will tell you of their of the level of security.

 OK – now for the installation and tutorial! 

The first thing you will need to do is download and create an account. At first glance, LastPass might seem a little complicated to use, but it’s not. If you follow these easy steps you will be good to go. 

Getting started with LastPass requires installing the application and setting up a free account. The reason for this is to keep your passwords synced and to manage your password vault. 

Click this link to download LastPass for free. 

LastPass will then automatically take you to the appropriate extension store to add its browser extension to your browser. Be sure to add that to your browser for easy access and managing your passwords. 

Below, you will see the icon with the “star” which is the Chrome extension I installed. When clicked on, you can complete all the actions needed to manage your passwords and settings. 

Last Pass Login Screen

Once installed, click the new asterisk icon in your browser toolbar or address bar, depending on your browser, to create an account. You’ll need your email address, timezone, and a master password you’ll use to unlock your LastPass account.

Make sure you document your master password for LastPass outside of your computer.  

Once you have LastPass installed, it will automatically detect whenever you log into websites that require a saved password. LastPass will ask you if you want to save it or discard it using a toolbar pop-up. Below, you can see an example of how it will work.

Here, you can choose if you want to “Save Site“, “Never” save this site, Or just “Not Now“.  I really like this feature a lot! 

Once you choose “Save Site” you will see this screen below. You can also choose the “Advanced Settings” option to set the website to auto-login. That means, once you choose auto-login, the second you click on the websites username and passwords field, it will automatically log you in without asking.

  2. I have been using LastPass for years and am SO happy to have found another enthusiast. I could not live without this app. I even splurge and did the $10/year paid version so that I could use is across my device. Thanks for spreading the word! ;-)

  4. Hi Carolann, I have had LastPass on my site for a while now and couldn’t be happier. I do not have to keep resetting my passwords as I would often get them mixed up or forget completely. I only need to remember one password now, and I also love the auto fill so no more typing my name , address & URL.

  5. Hi Doreen, Well, they do have a premium version too :) But honestly, the free one is just as awesome. I’ve been using that for years now and I adore it. Look at the comments of folks here who do use and love it too. You just can’t beat it! Have a great weekend!

  9. Hmmm. Such a quandary. I change my passwords every few months and it is nerve-wracking. I make a list and hide it in the house. Like the old man who hides money under his mattress.
