LastPass at Penn

The University has partnered with LastPass to supply LastPass Premium password management accounts to all members of the Penn community.  LastPass offers a secure vault for storage of your passwords, and other secure information, allowing users to create stronger, and more varied passwords for their various accounts, ultimately leading to a more secure environment.  Along with this vault comes a series of tools, including a random password generator, password auditing tools, and a password auto-change tool.  The Premium license offered to the Penn community also allows for LastPass to be set up on an unlimited number of devices (desktop or mobile), allows for sharing of passwords, and gives access to more security via multiple multifactor authentication models.

For more info, visit LastPass's website.

ISC has also partnered with LastPass to provide LastPass Enterprise instances on a per-school/org basis. For more details, see the LastPass Enterprise tab, below.
