Make your digital life safer and easier to manage with LastPass, a popular password management and retrieval platform.
- Welcome. I'm Suzanna Kaye, professional organizer and productivity trainer and I'd like to welcome you to this course about using LastPass. This course tells you everything you need to know about using the LastPass password management software. From installation and setup to security essentials and sharing. Also, along the way, I'll give you some helpful tips to make your experience with LastPass as easy and secure as possible. In this course, we'll begin by talking about understanding password management software and installation and program settings.
Then, we go into choosing a strong master password, uploading existing passwords, generating and entering new passwords, organizing your passwords, using the LastPass mobile apps, backing up your LastPass data, and, most importantly, all of the ways you can add extra security to your LastPass account. I look forward to showing you all of the ways LastPass can help you create a more secure, efficient, and successful password management system.
Let's get started.
First, learn how to set up and use LastPass on desktops, phones, and tablets; upload existing passwords and generate new ones; organize data; and work with identities and Secure Notes. Then discover how to share logins and folders with others, sync data, use the LastPass Tab and LastPass Wallet apps, and understand best practices for adjusting LastPass security settings and alerts.
