Join Suzanna Kaye for an in-depth discussion in this video Protecting your logins on public computers, part of LastPass Password Management Fundamentals.
- Along with the built in security features of LastPass,…there are some additional tools you can use…to protect yourself on public or untrusted computers.…Let's talk about virtual keyboards and one time passwords.…A virtual keyboard won't protect…against more sophisticated attacks,…but it is a useful tool against key loggers.…Key logging refers to software or hardware…that tracks each key you press on a keyboard.…It's one of the many tools data thieves may use…to steal your password and other important information.…
Using the virtual keyboard option means…you don't use a keyboard to type in your log in information.…You do it on screen instead,…so key loggers have nothing to track.…To access the virtual keyboard, visit the log in page…through LastPass.com and enter your email.…Under the email field, click the small…keyboard in the password field.…A keyboard image will appear.…Use your mouse to click the characters for your password…using the keyboard image on your screen.…Once you've finished, click the log in button…
