LastPass Information Sessions September 19
Cornell Information Technologies will be offering LastPass enterprise accounts to all active staff, students, and faculty in early October. The account is free, voluntary, and users will be able to keep it when they leave the university.
LastPass is a password management service that can store all of a user’s passwords in a secure vault, which the user protects with one master passphrase. It is a browser extension and mobile app that works across operating systems and device types. LastPass can also autofill forms, store private notes, and keep other information secure.
Next week, the IT Security Office is offering two hour-long, optional information sessions at Weill Hall. These sessions will be led by LastPass employees and are designed to show users how to get the most benefit out of LastPass. We strongly encourage IT staff from across the university to attend one of these sessions. Choose from one of the following times:
- September 19: 12:00-1:00pm, Weill Hall, room 321
- September 19: 3:00-4:00pm, Weill Hall, room 221
One of the biggest benefits of LastPass is that users only have to remember one passphrase, thereby enabling them to create complex, strong passwords/passphrases for all of the websites where they save login credentials.
