Password security is extremely important and with insurance agencies accessing a variety of websites, applications, and internal tools to get work done, a lot of these different online avenues require passwords. Remembering a bunch of passwords is not easy to remember which is why most of us opt for having the same password for many different websites and applications. The problem with that, however, is that it becomes easier for a data breach to occur.
Passwords cause 81% of breaches, failing to protect them could be a costly mistake.
With every password being an entry point for hackers, securing them should be a top priority. Moreover, having a password protector and manager makes it easier for your employees to access their web accounts in a much simpler way. When our clients let us know how great LastPass really was, we couldn’t resist – and the best part is that it’s so affordable!
We’ve listed down the benefits of using LastPass and why you should use it too:
Autofill Your Passwords
Imagine going to a carrier’s website and having to remember one Master Password every single time. LastPass automatically fills out usernames and passwords. Autofill allows you to fill in form fields online automatically with your information. If you use password autofill, your username and password are automatically filled in when you visit the sites you’ve saved. This helps you to simplify login processes and eliminates the need to remember different passwords for different websites. You can just log in with a click without having to type in your information – LastPass does all that for you!
Password Vault To Store Your Agency Passwords
LastPass acts as a safe for your agency’s online valuables by storing all of your passwords and other essential information in a password vault. With LastPass being used across your team, you can simplify processes for them which adds to their productivity. The LastPass vault stores all your passwords, secure notes, and credit card information in one centralized location.
