LastPass: Making Magic of Passwords

Magic!
Magic!

If you’re anything like me, or even nothing like me at all, you are probably logging into multiple sites each day – several times a day!

On any given day, I can be logging into 4 Gmail accounts and 5 Salesforce instances. Remembering all those usernames and passwords can be quite a task.

Enter LastPass*, a simple application that sits quietly in your browser until you need it. And then the magic happens!

With LastPass, you can save usernames and passwords to just about any website.You can store them in folders and give the saved logins names for easy identification. When you reach a login page, you simply chose the correct login match and login. On a new website or using a new login? No problem – you can save the information on the fly! Also, you LastPass account can work across all your devices. Once installed, you have the same saved logins wherever you are.

While there are other browser extensions that retain passwords (especially for Salesforce), I chose this one not just because it was recommended by a friend*, but also because it can save all types of passwords.

Happy Passwording!

*As of 2014, 84% of consumers say they either completely or somewhat trust recommendations from family and friends about products – making these recommendations the information source ranked highest for trustworthiness.

Hello world!

Welcome to Clouds ‘n’ Tricks!

Im coming up to the 3.5 year mark since I was first introduced to Salesforce. It’s been a long journey of struggles, trials, frustration, triumphs, ecstasy and lots of adrenaline. I hope you will join me on my journey now as I aim to share some of my thoughts and insights with others.

Each blog post will focus on a specific feature, a challenge overcome or a tip to share. It is not a step-by-step tutorial though I will often direct your to the appropriate resource.

I look forward to addressing any questions you may have and learning together.

Ciao for now,

Rachel
