Attachments

LastPass users can now add documents, PDF files, and images as attachments to Secure Notes. If there are files that you want to keep that shouldn’t be stored unencrypted on your machine or that need to be portable, then LastPass is the place to back them up.

For example: Let’s say you’re traveling abroad. To prepare for the trip, store a photocopy of your passport as an attachment in LastPass. If your passport is lost or stolen, you can locate a computer, ¬†install and log in to LastPass, open the attachment, and print it. You now have a helpful resource for replacing your lost passport.

Storing an Attachment

Attachments can be added to new or existing Secure Notes by clicking the paperclip icon in the Edit dialog, and locating the file on the device. Your attachments are then synced to any location where you log in to your account:

Like all stored data, attachments are locally encrypted and decrypted with a key that is never sent to LastPass, providing a secure storage option with the convenience of universal access.

Multiple Attachments

More than one attachment can be added to a single Secure Note. A single attachment can be up to 10MB.

Attachment Storage Limits

Currently, free users have up to 50 MB of encrypted file storage, and Premium users have up to 1GB encrypted file storage. The size limits are open to change.

Availability

Attachments are supported on all browser add-ons and platforms, as well as the Premium iOS and Android mobile apps, and the free LastPass Wallet app on iOS.

For attachment support in Chrome, Safari and Opera, you will need an additional binary component.

Limitations

Attachments cannot be opened from the Online Vault in a browser where LastPass is not installed. Currently, LastPass must ‘call’ the extension to be able to open the attachment, if LastPass is not installed you will see an error message indicating you should install the add-on.
