Membership Discounts


The average person has approximately 25 online accounts but private investigators have several more pseudo email accounts used for investigations.  Most use the same simple password of 6-8 characters for all their accounts. If one account gets compromised all the others are now vulnerable. Password managers allow you to create passwords containing 100 characters containing a mix of numbers, letters and symbols.  Creating passwords of 20 plus mixed characters will make it virtually impossible for hackers to break. Using LastPass gives you not only greatly enhanced security but convenience too.
