The easiest way to manage and secure your passwords with LastPass is through your LastPass browser extension or mobile app.
In either case, you can set up your account in just a few easy steps, saving yourself time and headache later on by making sure all of your passwords are unique and secure! Here’s how to set up LastPass in 5 easy steps
Step 1: Download and Install
LastPass can be downloaded for free from its official website.
Click on Download and accept any security warnings that pop up on your screen.
After installation, you will have a folder labeled LastPass.
This is where all of your passwords are stored in case you forget them. Keep it somewhere safe!
Step 2: Personalize The Extension
The extension itself is pretty simple and straightforward. You don’t have to do much customization with it, but you can add some spice by changing your icon and even setting a password hint for when you forget your login credentials.
Click on My LastPass Vault, which will bring you to your vault and once inside, click on Settings from top-right corner.
Step 3: Add Some Sites
Log into all of your accounts on each browser that you’d like to be logged into automatically whenever you start browsing. For example, if you want your Facebook, Gmail, Twitter and other popular web apps and sites accessible at all times—like I do—you’ll need to log into those accounts in each browser that you use.
Step 4: Enable Security Questions
For extra security, you can also enable security questions when setting up your account. Some people forget their passwords all of a sudden, and an attacker could guess it using these questions. But with security questions enabled, you won’t be able to access your account even if someone manages to get your password.
Step 5: Share Your Password Files
Next, you’ll be prompted to share your password database. The idea is that only you should have access to your passwords and so they can’t be stored on any third-party servers.
Go ahead and select Anyone with a link at which point you will be shown a URL.
This URL is what others need in order to view your shared database. To share it with them, just send them that URL.
