Generate Random Passwords (LastPass)
This article applies to: Secure Password Management
Whenever you sign up for an account on a new website, you are asked to create a password for that site. A very important security principle is that you should use a different password on every site. Reusing passwords makes you much less secure.
LastPass can help by generating a secure, random password for you every time you sign up for an account on a new website.
To enable/disable this feature,
- Click the LastPass icon in your browser's toolbar, then select Preferences.
- In the left column, click Notifications.
- Check/uncheck Offer to Generate Secure Passwords.
- Click Save.
With this feature turned on, whenever LastPass senses that you are signing up for a new account on a website, it will offer to create a random password for you. You can either accept or choose to create your own password.
LastPass also offers an online password generator tool to instantly create secure, random passwords anytime at your convenience.
