LastPass Overview


The video above is an in-depth video put together by CMVM. The video is an overview of LastPass itself, the features, and how to use it. 

Add and Fill Logins



LastPass simplifies logging in to any website by remembering usernames and passwords for you.

When you visit a site, just type you username and password. After you log in, confirm that you want LastPass to save it to your vault. Any time you return to that site, LastPass fills everything in for you.

Or, click the LastPass icon in the field to choose from multiple logins.

No typing required. It's all automated with LastPass.



Generating Passwords



LastPass makes it easy to quickly create strong passwords.

As you're creating a new account, click the LastPass icon to use the generate and fill option to make a new password.

Click "more options" to choose the length, which special characters to include and even if you want the password to be easy to read.

LastPass then asks to save this new information to your vault so it's quick and easy to access next time.
