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,

  1. Click the LastPass icon in your browser's toolbar, then select Preferences.
  2. In the left column, click Notifications.
  3. Check/uncheck Offer to Generate Secure Passwords.
  4. Click Save.

With this feature turned on, whenever LastPass senses that you are signing up for a new account on some website, it will offer to create a random password for you. You can either accept or choose to create your own password.
