Day 4 is upon us, Garrett,

Now that you have a handy tool for saving and managing passwords, let’s use it!
 

Saving your first password

Saving passwords to LastPass is easy, and there are a few different ways to do it. Here’s one of them:
  • Click the Lastpass extension next to your address bar
  • Click “My Vault”. This will open a new tab, which displays your “vault” of profiles linked to your Lastpass. Whenever you need manage passwords, or secure sharing settings, this is where you’ll go. 
  • From your Vault page, click the red plus sign in the lower right hand corner.
    Click “Add Site”
  • This will bring up this menu, allowing you to add:
    • The URL of the website you’re saving to LastPass. (When you start typing the site you’re saving, this should autofill with the one you’re looking for).
    • Your “Name” for this profile. You can use the LastPass search bar to find information more easily when they’ve been nicknamed, such as “Work Gmail” and “Home Gmail”.
    • The folder in your vault where these details will stay. Later, you may want to create folders by category, such as Finance, Email, News, Social Media, etc.
    • Your username used to log into the site you’re saving to LastPass.
    • The Password used to log into the site you’re saving to LastPass. 
    • A space for your notes regarding this profile. This could be information on the last time you changed your password, or even personal notes (like an Amazon shopping list saved here, instead of on Amazon).
  • When everything is accurate, click “Save”
The next time you go to a website, that you’ve saved to LastPass, there will be a Lastpass icon in the “Username” and “Password” fields, that allow you to quickly find your credentials.
All you need to do is click that icon, then the matching profile you want to log in with, and Lastpass will autofill your details. After those fields are auto-filled, just click login and continue on your way!

Saving passwords on the fly

Once you’re comfortable with LastPass, you can also save passwords to your vault as you go. After logging into a new website, you’ll get a prompt after logging in, asking if you’d like to save it to LastPass. Click “Yes” (or “Update”, if it’s a new password on a website that’s already stored in your LastPass) and you’re done!

Today’s Tasks:

  • Follow the process above to add 5-6 useful profiles to your Lastpass Vault (10 min)
Tomorrow we’ll talk about using LastPass to make your passwords even stronger.

See you then!
