Adding new sites to your LastPass account is both easy and secure. Since all sensitive data is encrypted locally on your computer with a key that only you know before it is sent to LastPass, you can store your most sensitive data with the knowledge that it is completely safe.
Adding a Site
Choose Save credentials for this site to continue to the next Save Site dialog:
In this dialog, you can specify:
- Name: add a friendly name for the account
- Folder: create a new folder or select an existing folder/shared folder for this account to keep your sites organized. Some examples of folders are Financial, Shopping, Social Networks, etc.
- Username: ensure the username is correct, or otherwise edit it to the correct one
- Password: verify the correct password is being saved
After clicking Save Site, LastPass will automatically enter the site data into your LastPass Vault. With your encrypted data stored, LastPass will automatically fill in this information the next time you visit the site and login.
and choose Edit:
When viewing this entry, you can specify whether you would like LastPass to make the site a Favorite, Require Password Reprompt, or Autologin.
If you are logging into a site in which you have an existing account stored with LastPass, but are now using a different password, you will also see an option to replace the existing site with the new login information.
Manually Saving a Site with Save All Entered Data
An alternate way to save a site is to use the ‘Save All Entered Data’ option in the toolbar. This option works best for sites that have more than one field (e.g. username, password, and PIN) or for sites that have obscure logins. If you find that the above method does not work, try this one.
To save using Save All Entered Data, do the following:
- Enter your login data onto the page (do not login yet!)
- Click on the LastPass Icon > Sites > Save All Entered Data
- Within the LastPass browser extension for Internet Explorer, Click on the LastPass Icon > Tools > Save All Entered Data
- After choosing Save All Entered Data, LastPass will launch an dialog box where you can view all of the captured fields and specify your desired settings for the site:
- Click Save.
Basic Authentication Sites
LastPass supports saving and filling basic authentication logins in most cases:
- Internet Explorer: filling and saving
- Firefox: filling and saving (on all platforms)
- Chrome: filling and saving on Windows (with binary), filling on Mac (with binary), no saving or filling on Linux
- On other platforms and non-binary, we can intercept the dialog as long as the site is launched from LastPass.
Basic authentication logins are not supported on Safari, Opera, and Maxthon.
Autofilling With LastPass
When you are actively logged into LastPass, you should see a red LastPass Icon > in your browser tool bar. This means that LastPass is ready to use and will autofill your saved data for you. When visiting a site that has been saved in the Vault, LastPass will fill in the data for you.
These interactive icons will assist you in filling saved logins, creating new logins, and generating passwords. Click on the icon to reveal the credentials that have been saved at the site.
If you already have multiple saved logins for a site, you will see the field icons show the number of matching sites found. Clicking on the icon will present you with a drop down menu that will show you matching sites:
You can scroll down if more logins are stored than shown. If you do not want to scroll to search, you can begin typing in the username and LastPass will begin to sort through and find matching results.
Clicking the desired login will then autofill the username and password selected.
Within the field icons is a submenu that includes other available options:
In addition to accessing filling sites with the field icon, you can also fill using the right-click context menu.
When you are on a site (and logged into LastPass), you can right-click on the page to trigger the context menu:
From the submenu you can:
- Autofill matching sites
- Copy Username/Password
- Copy URL
- Recheck Page (force LastPass to recheck page for fill fields)
- Generate Secure Password
- Fill Forms
