Password management software is critical for your firm, whether you’re an accountant, CPA firm, Bookkeeper, or chartered accountant. To help get you started, we’ve put together a few of our top recommendations and reviews.

Last Pass (recommended*)

What it Does: Last Pass saves you the trouble of having to remember or even jot down your  passwords.

Main Features:

  • Simple, Fast, and Effortless Browsing
    • Once you’ve created your account, LastPass prompts you to save new sites as you browse – so you’ll never lose another password.
    • Hassle-free log in. After saving a website’s username and password, LastPass autofills the login when you return to that site.
    • Centralized data. See all your accounts and passwords in one easy-to-use “vault”, where you can edit, delete, and organize your stored data. LastPass syncs automatically, so you’re up-to-date, wherever you are.
    • Streamline Online Shopping
  • Store What Matters and Keep Your Data Safe
    • Record Your Most Important Information
    • Backup Sensitive Documents
    • Send logins for shared accounts to friends and family who are fellow LastPass users. Keep passwords “hidden”, and delete when needed.
  • Password Security Without The Headache
    • Generate long, strong Passwords with the LastPass password generator
    • Run the LastPass Security Challenge to check your progress, and identify areas where you can improve your online security. LastPass also alerts you to weak and duplicate passwords as you’re logging in to your accounts, so you can immediately generate new ones
    • Get security alerts emailed to you directly, so you can be proactive about replacing passwords when other sites and services may have been hacked.
