How to Manage Passwords

Use LastPass to automatically change a password

The topic of password security has been in the news recently because of several high-profile websites that had their users’ passwords hacked. The advice after these kinds of hacking incidents is always the same: change your passwords at the affected sites, use a long/complicated password that is not comprised of words that can be found in a dictionary, and do not use the same password at more than one site.
