Quick fixes for annoying tech problems

Problem: pesky passwords

If I had a dollar for every person I know who keeps a paper notebook next to their computer just to jot down passwords I’d be too busy catching a nap on an exotic beach to even do this job. If you’re one of those people who fills sheets of paper with logins for your email, Facebook, bank accounts, and so on, you’re not just making life more tedious for yourself, you’re actually putting yourself at a huge risk. Not having immediate access to your passwords on the go and leaving a paper copy behind, even in your home, is a dangerous habit.

Solution: A digital password guru

This sounds counterintuitive, but in order to get a grip on your countless digital accounts, you’re going to need to create just one more. LastPass is the best password manager on the market because it’s fast, secure, and free to use. Download LastPass on your phone or computer, input your account details for everything from Best Buy to Facebook, and you’ll never have to remember your passwords again. LastPass securely saves your login details and then autofills it whenever you need it. If you enable two-factor authentication on LastPass you even get an alert on your smartphone whenever you’re logging in as an added layer of protection. 1Password and Dashlane are also great options, but I’d recommend trying LastPass before giving the alternatives a try.
