Password Vault Software

A safe for your online valuables

What is a password vault?


Password managers like LastPass store all your passwords and other essential information in a password vault. Think of it like a physical safe but for your online valuables.

Your LastPass vault is your home base for everything you’ve saved including passwords, secure notes, and credit card information. If you are new to LastPass, you can import sites into your vault or add them manually. Or with the browser extension, LastPass will automatically capture account passwords as you enter them on every website.

From the LastPass vault, you can launch websites, edit login information, add notes, share login information, and more.

What can you store?

Password vaults save usernames and passwords of course, but what else can they store?

Payment information

Securely save credit cards in your password vault to make paying bills and shopping online easier. You can create profiles for different cards and autofill that information when you go to pay. No more searching for your wallet.

Personal and family information

Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers – this is all information you often need to know about your family members – and it’s not safe to text or email it. Storing it in your password vault helps you share it securely.

Securely shared information

 Teams at work often have to share credentials to sites and applications. You can store those credentials in your LastPass vault and share them securely. No more passwords on sticky notes or in text messages. Add them to your vault!

What sites should I save in my password vault?

Banking

Keep your financial life secure by saving all your banking logins in your password vault (e.g., checking, 401(k), and investment accounts). Also, take advantage of two-factor authentication when available.



Email

Your email is the door to your digital world, so keep it safe. Storing your email password in your password vault helps you create a strong password and rotate it more frequently for safe measure.



Social media

Social media sites contain a lot of personal information that hackers love. Create strong, unique passwords for these sites and save them in LastPass.


Why do I need a password vault?

Unfortunately, security breaches are becoming more and more common, and it’s almost impossible to keep your information safe without the help of an online vault.

According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Report, 81% of breaches are due to weak or reused passwords. Passwords are the weak link when it comes to your online security – mostly because they are hard to remember. Your password vault eliminates this problem and allows you to store and use unique, strong passwords.

This is particularly important for businesses as employees have so many account logins to remember, and they often need to share passwords between coworkers. There is no good way to do this securely without storing this information in a password vault.

How secure is the LastPass vault?

At LastPass security is our number one priority. With local-only encryption, your data is encrypted and decrypted at the device level. Data stored in your vault is kept secret, even from LastPass.

Your master password, and the keys used to encrypt and decrypt data, are never sent to LastPass’ servers, and are never accessible by LastPass.

We are also SOC 2 Type II compliant. This detailed review of our controls and processes is a “gold standard” for confirming the security and reliability of LastPass.



Benefits of a password vault

  • Secure storage: Ensure all your sensitive information is stored safely.
  • Strong passwords: Make your passwords unique and strong without having to remember them.
  • Time savings: Cut down on the time it takes to log in to your online accounts.
  • Sharing: Share passwords and other information with teammates or family members.
