Are you one of those people that save all of your passwords to different web sites inside your favorite browser? This is typically not a secure practice and can be remedied by using a service called LastPass. LastPass makes password storage a snap!

You will need a LastPass account, don’t worry it’s free unless you want access to your passwords from your smartphone. Users desiring smartphone access to LastPass, don’t worry it is extremely affordable ($12/y), trust me you won’t regret it. Go over to LastPass and sign up for an account and download and install their app.

During the LastPass installation process, there is a step that will allow you to import and encrypt all of your passwords from Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox and then remove them from the browser. Their app will also install the addons for IE, Firefox and Chrome, making your move to an encrypted internet life fairly painless.
