Clean up your passwords

As you save passwords in LastPass, follow these rules:

  • Longer passwords are generally better.
  • 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.
