Although companies are cracking down, we all know that sharing account information for streaming services like Netflix and HBO Go is quite common.

If you abide by proper cyber security practices, you should be using a different password for each of your accounts — you probably don't want your friends to know your online banking login information. 

However, that can make it a tad difficult when it's time to scrounge up the needed password to share with a friend or family member.

Fortunately, LastPass has an elegant solution: Not only will the password manager store and encrypt your plethora of passwords, LastPass makes it easy to share a password between one another.

Here are the three simple steps required to share a password via LastPass.
