One of the first lines of defensive in a good cybersecurity hygiene is maintaining strong passwords. Technically, May 2, 2019 was national password day but it’s never too late to indulge in some improved security measures.
While LastPass has been my go-to password manager for years, it did have one well known pain point in that if you lost your master password, you had no way to recover. Meaning, all of those passwords you collected were lost and you had to start all over from scratch recording them. Not cool Lastpass, not cool.
Consequently, I was very happy, nay ecstatic, to see LastPass introduce mobile account recovery.
In English, it means you can now recover a lost password using fingerprint or Face ID authentication, both of which are more secure than passwords (details).
Whether you use a password manager or not (spoiler: you should), take some time to go through your password and refresh them with updated versions.
