LastPass, one of the top-selling password managers, would be a practical and affordable app for students.

Students in 2017 are digital natives. Whether on the internet on their smartphones or laptops, students should be aware of how easily accessible their personal information is and how hackers have become experts at phishing. A first line of defense is having a strong password along with multi-factor authentication. It may seem basic, but this can go a long way to protecting the digital identity of students.

There’s a LastPass version that’s free, and LastPass Premium ($12 a year) these are great (low cost) apps for students who want to start fresh and get organized for the new school year.
