5 responses to “Managing your passwords”

  1. I totally agree with this article. I am currently using LastPass and my (generated) passwords are much more complex than any of the self-generated passwords that I was using previously.

    Also absolutely agreed about needing to remember just one password, which you can make fairly long and complex (eg substitute symbols/numbers for letters in a long phrase).

    Too bad, I cannot use the LastPass to sign into the hospital system and the hospital passwords still need to be changed (and forgotten) every 3 months.

  2. I was excited til I read the comment above. Too bad I still have to change a pw every 3 months at work.

  3. While you cannot use this for the hospital login, LastPass has been very useful in recording passwords to those sites that I only intermittently use but which have password requirements like the CPSBC. The one thing you need to remember, though, is not to lose your LastPass password!

  4. This is great! I’ve been using LastPass for 4 years and I almost consider it a matter or professionalism to use a password manager.

  5. I started using Keeper password manager one month ago. It works on all my medical and business sites except the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC website. I contacted the College IT help and they said it had something to do with their security and how Keeper autofills the password. I never was able to get it to work on the College website. Have you heard of this before?
