Using LastPass to secure your EVERYTHING!

Securing your logins, passwords, and sensitive information you use online is an often overlooked activity that many folks don’t think too much about – until there’s a problem. There are a few tools out there that can help you meet these challenges head on, and we love one in particular is LastPass.

If you’re a business owner, it’s even more important that you secure and manage this data!

LastPass comes in handy with all sorts of protections you never even think of …

After this post, you will be able to quickly assess if LastPass is right for you – including what it takes to get going.

How does this stuff work?


Leading Encryption Technology

AES 256-bit encryption with routinely-increased PBKDF2 iterations.

That’s tech speak for strong protection for the data you store in LastPass.

Local-Only Decryption

All sensitive data is encrypted and decrypted locally before syncing with LastPass. Your key never leaves your device, and is never shared with LastPass. Your data stays accessible only to you.

Multifactor Authentication

LastPass offers numerous multifactor authentication options. By adding a second login step, you’re better protecting your account – and the information you’ve stored in it.
