LastPass for Windows – a complete guide

 LastPass for Windows – a complete guide

LastPass is a free cloud login service. It is used as a browser extension for Windows Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Edge browsers. It is a password manager that stores all your usernames, passwords, payment card numbers, and other data for filling out internet forms in one safe place, called Vault, which is located online in the cloud. After you save the data to Vault, LastPass remembers it for you. When you want to log in to a website or enter the credit card information, LastPass automatically fills in this information for you (provided you have previously saved it in your LastPass account).

The main reason why you would use LastPass instead of the similar functionality offered by the browsers themselves is security in the first place. All your passwords and card numbers are encrypted, so even if you catch malware on your PC that finds and steals your confidential information, it will take encrypted data that is worthless. Browsers do not do this.

Additionally, if you have multiple different accounts on one site and frequently change those accounts or often pay something online, all of this becomes very quick and easy with just a few clicks.

Today we all have a bunch of accounts, codes, pin codes, all that needs to be remembered, and LastPass remembers it all for you, keeps it safe and that is why it is literally irreplaceable. We have created a detailed tutorial (step by step guide) for LastPass, check it out in the video below.
