- Use capital letters, numbers, and symbols to make your passwords more complicated.
- Follow the one account = one password rule. Do not use the same password across multiple accounts.
- Change your PennKey password and LawKey password if they violate any of the above rules.

LastPass Multifactor Authentication
We recommend setting up multifactor (two-factor, two-step) authentication to add an extra layer of security to logging onto LastPass. Go here for more information about LastPass Multifactor Authentication.
To set up Multifactor Authentication:
1. Navigate to your LastPass Vault and go to Account Settings.
2. Select Multifactor Options, and select the pencil icon under Action for the Multifactor authenticator application (such as Google Authenticator) you’d like to use.
3. Select Yes from the dropdown menu for Enabled.
4. Scan the QR barcode or type your Private Key into your authenticator app.
5. Then choose Update.
6. Enter the code from your authenticator application into LastPass.
7. Then you’re finished enabling multifactor authentication for LastPass!
