Next steps

  1. Don't forget to disable your browser's built-in password manager. This helps avoid the confusion that can arise when both Pitt Password Manager and your browser ask you to save a password. In addition, LastPass is a much more secure method of storing passwords than your web browser.

  2. Make sure to set up SMS recovery on your account. This allows you to recover your Pitt Password Manager master password if you ever forget it. 

  3. Review the help resources on our webpage to get started using Pitt Password Manager.
