Wondering what some of you are doing and what works best.   We use shared accounts and passwords for carrier sites.  Technology is finally catching up with some of them where they know location and in use so next person can't (funny they only now are catching up).   That said and for new training, Safeco requires every user to have own Safeco login.

Other accounts would still be shared.   I don't have any experience with lastpass or roboform etc. and wondered how it worked.    Ideally I would like to control and say this is shared and only I can update and same time allow them to update their own accounts.   Then they would only need to remember login for app let app log them in.  Idea of control is if someone leaves, I can turn them off or add another. 

Questions are:

1:  Admin can manage all/over-ride
2:  Allow me to manage and update shared accounts
3:  Allow staff to update own individual accounts

I'm thinking they all do but again never used and now need to look into.  Wanted personal hands on feed back.  Pro's and Con's.

TIA!

I can't answer your questions directly right now but I'm almost positive one of the paid version of LastPass will do what you are wanting. 

There is an Enterprise version which has gotten fairly pricey over the years since LogMeIn bought them - but they still have a 'teams' version which isnt as expensive and still does a lot.  They always have the free version but it is limited when it comes to the sharing and controls you're looking for.

Good to know - thats a shame as I have a call coming up with them.

That said...from the agency perspective, we really should be moving away from shared logins wherever possible, both from a security perspective as well as a compliance perspective. A lot of the carriers are pushing for individual logins now as you need to be able to prove who did what to a record, which you can't do with a shared login.

We use OKTA for some shared logins, but it can be a pain to set up for carrier sites that change often.

I have been using Roboform for years, but I am not sure if it can do the admin things you are looking for.  You can certainly share it among multiple devices, but each device/user has the ability to update data.


I started using it with an intention to share the single login, and later wanted to start exploring for the functionality you are looking for.  But I never got there, between the Epic conversion and then taking this job.

Jeff that's just it we are moving away from shared.  However some markets are small and do so.  I need a hybrid app that allows both individual updates and where I can login and update said shared accounts.   

People can't remember things or write them down which defeats purpose.  I want a single login to keep simple for them and they just visit and login with their credentials or the shared ones.

I think LastPass has business version for 3.20 a month per user?  Maybe that was Roboform?  Just looking for anyone who's done this and knows for sure if I can get my end result.

Thanks Tom, Jeff, Billy and Josh!  Leaning towards paid version of LastPass.   I may look at roboform see if it's any better.  Did try it years ago.

Bob,


I happened to attend a seminar last night, and this topic was covered briefly.  So here's a couple of others that may be worth a quick glance.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND AGAINST using Outlook contacts for password storage. People do this often, but then if your computer or phone is left somewhere unlocked, or if you email account is compromised, every password you have there is as well. Not a good idea!

I don't have personal experience with it, but one of our owners has been using 1Password for several years (after he had his identity stolen), and swears by it.
