Browser Password Security


Passwords remembered by browsers are insecure and can be read by anybody with access to the computer on which they’re stored.  Additionally, most people use more than one computer and more than one browser, so a secure method of being able to remember and share passwords is advantageous.  There are many FREE utilities which can do this, one of which is Lastpass.  Lastpass is clever in that it encrypts your password store before it’s uploaded to your online account, which you can also access directly via any web browser.

The premium version (approx. £8 per year) allows you to install the mobile app on smartphones.
