Having different usernames and passwords for each social media account, webpage, and email address can be hard to remember, but it actually keeps your information more secure. This way, if one account is compromised, the problem is contained.
This is where LastPass comes in. LastPass is a tool that stores all of your passwords and usernames in one highly secure, centralized location so that you don’t have to remember them.
Through a LastPass Premium Business Account, your team can have two accounts, one for work and one for personal use. Users can also link both of their accounts together for ease of experience.
LastPass for business has two options: Teams and Enterprise.
“Teams” allows users to share folders containing login information with other people on their team. It also gives the account administrator access to a user-friendly admin dashboard as well as easy ways to manage users on the account.
“Enterprise” includes all of the “Teams’” features, plus some additional options that tend to benefit larger companies
You can learn more about both here.
Whether you use LastPass for your personal business, or that of an employer, you will still want to set up a personal account to ensure privacy and safety.
Here’s what LastPass has to say:
For a seamless login experience, you can set up and link a personal LastPass account. Personal = Private. Your Enterprise Admin never sees what you store in your personal account, and your personal account goes with you when you leave the company. Once you link the accounts, your personal account will appear as a sub-folder in your Enterprise vault. You can save all personal logins directly into your personal folder, or drag them in later.
Creating Business and Personal Accounts
You are likely in one of the following situations:
- You already have a personal LastPass account and have not yet been added to the business account. In this case, set up your business account. Keep it separate from your personal account by using your work email address, not your personal one.
- You aren’t using LastPass yet, but received an invitation to join a business account. Great! Set up your business account with your business email address and start using it right away. If after using LastPass, you’d like to use it for personal logins as well, create a personal account and link it to the busines account.
- Your personal account is already linked to the business account; you are using the same email address for both accounts. Oops! You’ll need to log in to your business account and choose the settings icon from the left-hand menu. Under Login Credentials, Account Email, enter your work email in your account settings. You will have to verify the email address. Check your email, and enter the code you receive into the box displayed.
- You need to create and link a new Personal Account. If you don’t have a personal account, create one now. Remember to use your personal, not business, email.
Linking your Personal and Business Accounts
Login to your business account and choose the link icon from the left-hand menu. Then you can link your personal account. The process is explained in more detail here.
Migration of Data
You may find that you need to migrate data between the accounts. You can simply drag and drop the information from one account to another. Or, if you have a lot to move, follow these instructions:
- Go to your Enterprise vault.
- Choose “Sort by folder” in the upper right-hand corner and choose the list view, not the grid view.
- Expand the folders and click the check boxes of each login that you want to move.
- Near the top in the left-hand corner, click actions and choose move to folder. Look for the new personal folder in your Enterprise vault (the folder name will be your personal username)
