Online Password Managers
Dear Computer Lady,
Thank you for all the years of information, many of a great help.
Now I have a question, do you use an online password program. I have so many different passwords between work and home with loads of pieces of paper with each one on, that I thought maybe this might be the way to go and wonder what you thought of the different ones.
I have been getting emails from Dashlane and seeing I know nothing about these thought I would ask you.
Thank you, Barb
I have not used dashlane, but I have used an online password manager, lastpass for several years now.
I have one master password with Lastpass that I don’t have written down, and I don’t use for other sites. Using this one password, I keep track of all my other passwords. I also use it to store secure notes and information that I need to keep private.
Just like Dashlane, Lastpass is free to open an account, but also has a premium version for extra features.
Both programs appear to be secure and encrypt your data so that only you (or someone with your master password) can read it.
