It happens to the best of us, or those of us that don’t use a single password for everything. There are many sites we use now and then, and we probably click on the forgot link more than the password box. Writing down passwords to remember them is not recommended, nor is keeping a list on your phone or tablet – lose the list, and you’re back to step one.
Password managers can be the answer, but finding a good one can often be the problem. After trying several different password managers I finally decided to use Lastpass. To use Lastpass to its full potential there is a fee for the premium version, but at $1/month it is well worth it.
Lastpass is available for many browsers, and on many platforms. Currently there is a solution for:
- Major browsers on Windows, Mac and Linux
- Windows Phone
- Dolphin Browser
- Firefox Mobile
- Firefox OS
- IE Anywhere
- Portable for Firefox
- Portable for Chrome
- Microsoft Surface RT
And of course you can visit http://lastpass.com on any browser to access your information.
