Now that UW-Madison has implemented our organization’s LastPass Enterprise account, let’s take a moment to review what LastPass is, and why you should start using it.
What is LastPass?
LastPass makes it easy to access all your apps and websites at work. By combining single sign-on and password management, LastPass connects you to cloud apps and stores all your usernames and passwords in one safe place, called a Vault. Your admin may enable apps for you, or you can save passwords to your Vault as you log in to websites. After you save a password to your Vault, LastPass always remembers it for you. When you need to log in to a website, LastPass enters your credentials for you!
A password manager and single sign-on solution does many other things, including:
- Generating new unique and secure passwords for you
- Showing your security score and dark web monitoring alerts
- Storing information such as PIN codes and membership IDs
- Sharing passwords with others
- Filling out addresses and credit card forms
- Providing one-click login to apps that you use at work
Why should I use LastPass?
LastPass will help you in your day-to-day work while improving the overall security of your company.
Key benefits of using LastPass include:
- Convenience – No more forgotten or mistyped passwords
- Time saved – Instantly log in to websites
- Stronger security – Long passwords that you don’t have to remember
Now that you understand the basics of what LastPass is and why you should use it, it’s time to get details on how to start using your UW–Madison LastPass Enterprise account.
