Tech Tip: Use LastPass to Safely Shop Online


‘Tis the season for family, food and gifts!

This year we encourage you to shop the online deals to avoid the crowds and keep your family healthy. To help you keep up with all the online shopping accounts and bank details, we have a new tool for you.

Two Words: LastPass. Premium.
This password manager securely remembers and protects all your passwords, so you don’t have to, and it is FREE to all SHSU faculty, staff and students. 

How else can LastPass help with online shopping? 
LastPass makes your online shopping life even easier from login to purchase by securely storing your shopping account logins, credit card information and address details. This means when it is time to make your purchase, no thinking is required because it will auto fill all your payment and shipping details, making confirming your purchase your only job.

Also, LastPass is good for more than shopping accounts. Think: bill paying, encrypted file storage, secure password sharing, etc.
