It’s on my list to cover this topic of password managers in our YouTube show. We did choose LastPass just because of longstanding recommendations from others. Other password managers may be as good or better – any system is only as good as your commitment to learning the system. So just pick one and learn to use it. We use LastPass as well as allowing Google Chrome to remember passwords. I consider that a backup – there are times that LastPass misses something and Chrome password manager picks up that slack.
Starting to use LastPass was not all that simple – it took effort to set it up. I do think it has been worth it, but you need to be prepared for a learning curve. I especially like LastPass for 2 things: 1. Family shared folders – so Jim and I both have access to banking passwords etc. 2. Secure notes for things that aren’t passwords like Passport numbers, and pin numbers for credit cards.
