Even though weak, reused and compromised passwords are the cause behind many breaches, people continue to display pretty risky password behavior. In fact, we’ve found that 91% of people know that using the same password for multiple accounts is a security risk, but 59% admitted that they do it anyway.

Then you’ll be taken to a page that explains how to generate one or more passwords for your site. Using a One-Time Password. When you need to use your One Time Password, just go to lastpass.com and you’ll see the one-time password area – click on that and you’ll enter in your email and password on another page – it won’t work on the regular sign in page. Complete your sign-in using one of the passwords you’ve generated and you’re in! If you access multiple websites from a single provider, adding these sites as equivalent domains allows you to use just one username and password. In LastPass, click the extension button in your toolbar and select Add item, then Password (or whatever kind of information you want to add), which opens a screen where you can enter the web address, username, and password. LastPass will automatically fill in the URL for the site you're on, while 1Password will also offer to update existing logins for the site you're on, if you already have one in your vault.

So, you know you need to change your passwords to make sure each one is strong and unique. But it’s easier said than done. If you’re like the average LastPass user with nearly 200 accounts to keep track of, changing them all at once can seem like a daunting task.

In honor of #ChangeYourPasswordDay, we wanted to share some practical steps you can take to change your passwords and in doing so, improve your online security.

Store your passwords in a password manager.

This one seems obvious. But there is no way to have hundreds of accounts with unique passwords, if you don’t have somewhere secure to store them. If all of your accounts are in your LastPass vault, you know exactly what accounts you have, what their passwords are and that you can update them easily.

Audit your passwords

Run the LastPass Security Challenge to see which of your accounts have weak or reused passwords. This will give you a good place to start when changing passwords.

Prioritize sensitive accounts

After you’ve changed your passwords for accounts with weak or reused passwords, the next step is focusing on sensitive accounts. These are sites like banking, email, social media, medical records, taxes, etc. Anything that has sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) such as social security numbers, credits cards, etc. Your email is especially important because this is often used to reset accounts when you are locked out. If someone can access your email, they can reset your other accounts.

Turn on multi-factor authentication

Multi-factor authentication is one of the best ways to prevent your accounts from being compromised. Anyone who accesses your account not only needs your username and password, but they also have to provide an additional form of identification – like a fingerprint or a code that was emailed or texted.

Make it yearly

Once you have all have updated your accounts with unique, strong, complex passwords, there is no need to update them all the time, unless one of your sites experiences a breach, of course. Aim to do an audit of your passwords 1x a year (like on #ChangeYourPasswordDay) and you’ll be good!
