WordPress Managed Hosting

Password Security

The LastPass password generator

Password/username combos are a painful but unavoidable fact of internet life. Your WordPress website dashboard is yet another login to remember, so what’s the best way to go about it? Some people choose a password that is simple to remember, and use it for everything. Trouble is, if that password was discovered or guessed, a hacker could gain access to everything else you log in to.

If you use a dictionary word, a pet’s name or anything a computer might find guessable, you are at risk. Ideally, a password will contain a long string of mixed characters, numbers, uppercase and lowercase letters – AND – you’ll have a different unique password for every website.

So what’s the solution?

LastPass is a browser plugin that generates and remembers login details for all your sites. You need to remember one password only – log in to LastPass and let it do the work. Suitable for Windows, Android, MacOS and iOS.

The Premium version costs $2/month, with a 14-day trial period.
