Student Technology Help Desk

LastPass Password Manager


LastPass remembers your passwords so you don't have to

LastPass is available at no cost to current Madison College students, faculty and staff.


Additional Benefits

Convenience - LastPass allows storage of passwords and other items, like secure notes. It also offers password filling of saved credentials and secure sharing of saved items

Ease of use - Syncs everywhere with support for all browsers, operating systems, and mobile devices

Personal accounts - In addition to the LastPass Enterprise account for Madison College-related credentials, the LastPass as Families Benefit grants you and 5 family members personal accounts to help keep your non-Madison College accounts secure

Security - LastPass encrypts and decrypts your data locally on your machine and never has the key to your vault. The password generator helps to improve the complexity of your passwords and the Security Dashboard can identify potentially compromised passwords

Security Dashboard

Use the ‘Security Dashboard’ in LastPass to help identify passwords that may be weak or reused on multiple sites.

The dark web monitoring feature in the ‘Security Dashboard’ evaluates your stored email addresses in your vault items, and alerts you via email notification and within the Security Dashboard if any of your email addresses have been found in the database of breached credentials.
