LastPass Gets a Shout-Out on the Today Show!

On this morning's Today Show, technology expert Omar Wasow joined Matt Lauer to talk cyber safety. When asked about the challenge of creating strong passwords and managing the risk to your personal accounts, Wasow suggested using a password manager like LastPass to keep your passwords under control:



Omar correctly points out that the single most important thing we should be doing to protect ourselves online is to use different passwords on each site. We'll add that multifactor authentication increases the security of your LastPass account substantially (we also highly recommend using it with your email account if it's available as an option, like Google Authenticator with Gmail).

We're excited to see LastPass mentioned as the choice password manager!

    1. Yes, the only safe password (outside of LastPass) is the one you don't know.

    2. Indeed, he should have mentioned it. This wonderfully versatile generator has saved me the effort of having to create my own passwords.

    LastPass is efficacious. A wonderful security blanket.

  4. I love the fact that even if they break into LastPass and steal the entire database, doesn't help anybody because LastPass doesn't even have access to my stuff on their own servers. Great job guys! I love this service.
