How many times a day do you log into password-protected accounts like online banking, Netflix, or even Facebook? Have you ever wondered if the passwords themselves are secure?

Guess what, they probably aren’t – all a hacker has to do is crack the code, and your entire identity can be compromised in an instant. When hackers gain access to your devices and accounts, they can wreak all kinds of havoc, from opening new credit card accounts to draining existing bank accounts.

The Power of Secure Passwords

One of the easiest ways for hackers to get their hands on your sensitive information is to steal your passwords. The FTC says creating “long and strong” passwords is crucial to your online security.

Not only should passwords be complex, the FTC says, but they should be unique to each site, in other words, stop using the same old password for every account. But it’s next to impossible to create airtight individual passwords for all of your online accounts. and manages to hold them all back, doesn’t it?

That’s where a great password manager like LastPass Premium comes in. Cybersecurity expert and founder of CyberScout Adam Levin told Yahoo Life that a password manager should be your secret weapon against fraud, especially if you’re a bit lazy with passwords.

Here’s how LastPass Premium works: Suppose you create a password to get sensitive medical records online. The password manager will create a complex and rock-solid password that hackers couldn’t touch. It will inventory the password and automatically log you in from your laptop, phone, tablet, whatever you are using, whenever you need to access the site.

If you prefer to create your own password for a website, you are free to do so. LastPass Premium will also remember this. “The only thing you need to remember is your password manager’s password,” as Levin puts it.

Equifax says that once you’ve created your passwords, remember to change them “as often as you reasonably can manage,” especially now.
