LastPass for Android 4.0 and later is an application that will allow you to carry your LastPass data around with you. As always, this data can only be unlocked using your email address and password. There are several ways that you can use LastPass for Android:




  1. You can use LastPass to fill Android apps and sites in Chrome (requires Android 4.1+ for copy/paste buttons and Android 4.3+ for autofilling and Chrome)

  2. Open your LastPass Vault on Android.

  3. Share site entries and folders.

  4. Look into our Bookmarklets option, which offers limited access to fundamental LastPass features. In order to install Bookmarklets, go to the LastPass app, log in and open Vault Menu > Settings > Browser > Advanced to find the 'Install Bookmarklets' option.

  5. Use the LastPass extension for the Dolphin HD browser.

  6. We offer an extension for FireFox Mobile on Android, but functionality is limited in this, and we recommend Dolphin HD, our LastPass app, or Bookmarklets instead.


**Known limitation - The LP browser is unable to render .PDF files. These will need to be opened from another browser.


[accordion-item title="Installing LastPass for Android" id="h2"]

 

 

To install, open Google Play Store on your phone and search for LastPass. Or you can click here:  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lastpass.lpandroid If you would like to attempt a manual installation, you can download: https://lastpass.com/lpandroid.apk


You can also join our open beta team to get releases early!


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Fill Android Apps and Sites in Chrome" id="h3"]

 

 

Download the latest version of LastPass from the Android store or tap to update it on your Android (you need Android 4.1+ to fill apps and Android 4.3+ to fill Chrome). On first opening the application, you will be prompted to Sign in or Create and Account:



Once signed into LastPass for Android, you will be presented with the option to enable this feature. After tapping "Enable Fill into Apps",  you will want to make a note of the instructions for enabling LastPass and click OK to continue. This will open up the appropriate menu where you may enable the Accessibility Service on your device:



 Enable LastPass from your Accessibility menu as demonstrated:




App Fill Window


To fill an app, just tap on it to launch from your home screen and LastPass will offer to fill for you:



In Chrome, you will want to launch your Chrome browser from your home screen and then navigate to a site. Tapping on the Username or Password field will engage the autofill:




Fill Helper


After installing LastPass, you will have the option to enable the Fill Helper. The Fill Helper is great for pages and apps where the App Fill Window is not allowed to pop up automatically.




 

Select the options and apps you would like the Fill Helper to appear on. You can also change these settings later in Settings > App Fill.



Using Fill Helper in Chrome


In Chrome, the Fill Helper will appear on every page when the page is launched. By default, the Fill Helper defaults to automatically hide after 15 seconds. To make it reappear switch tabs or tap the address bar.  To change the hide timer, go to Settings > App Fill > Hide fill helper.


Tap the Fill Helper icon to open your available logins. Select the desired login to fill your credentials.




 

Using Fill Helper in Apps


By default, the Fill Helper will not appear in apps. Select apps you would like the Fill Helper to appear in when you first download by selecting Screenshot_2014-11-20-09-42-17.


If you would like to add an app later, do the following:




  1. Go to the LastPass App Settings

  2. Under App Fill, tap Edit fill helper settings

  3. Select apps by checking the box.

  4. To select/deselect all, check/uncheck Show for all apps by default


When Fill Helper is enabled for an app, tap the Fill Helper icon to view your saved logins for the app.



If Fill Helper and App Fill Window are both enabled, App Fill Window will take precedence and the Fill Helper will not be shown.


 

Limitations of Filling into Apps


Some apps prevent filling into their apps by setting their fields to 'noneditable', using a custom UI, setting their field types to text instead of password and manually masking. As a user, you cannot see these without developer tools. Reach out to the app maker and ask about these limitations of their app. You will also see Webviews which show as web pages piped into a window instead of an actual app. These are not able to be scanned by our Accessibility Service at this time.

[accordion-item title="Your LastPass Vault on Android" id="h4"]

 

 

LastPass for Android features a built-in browser that will automatically fill your login information for each of your saved LastPass sites. Once you have installed the LastPass Android app, tap the app icon to launch the login page. Tapping the 'hamburger' button in the upper left from this screen gives you access to the Vault options screen. You can also access this menu by swiping left from the edge of the screen when in your vault:



You may switch between the Sites, Secure Notes, and Form Fill views through this menu, or by swiping from the right edge of the vault screen.



Tapping on a site will open the options menu to interact with that site entry, while tapping on a folder name opens the Folder List, which allows you to jump to a different folder. To launch the Edit Site dialog, tap on a site entry to show the options menu and then tap on Edit.


The Edit Site menu for an entry looks very similar to the Edit menu you see on the full browser extension.  You can change the name of the entry, the folder it is stored in, URL, Username, Password, Edit Form Fields, designate it a as a Favorite, add a Master Password reprompt, or Never AutoFill. From the secondary menu in the upper right (three dots) of the Edit Site screen, you may also share the entry with other LastPass users, delete the entry, or generate a new password:



The Vault Menu also has options for:

[accordion-item title="Using the LastPass Android Browser" id="h5"]

 

 

The LastPass Android App has a fully functioning browser within the app. This browser can automatically launch your sites, autofill your login credentials, and can even save new login credentials when you login for the first time. When you launch a site from your Vault you will automatically be taken to the that site in the LastPass browser.  You can also go directly to the browser by tapping the LastPass icon in the top left corner of your Vault. Once in the browser and on a website, you can hit your Menu button and be offered a list of options to help your browsing experience:


[wc_row][wc_column size="one-half" position="first"]

[accordion-item title="Copy Notifications" id="h7"]

 

 

If you are running an OS where the App Fill Feature is not yet supported, there are two ways ways to use LastPass for Android to login to other apps and other browsers.  The first is the "Add Copy Notifications" method, and is detailed below. With the LastPass application running, tap a site entry in your vault to cause the Site Menu to appear. Tap on the More... option to expand the options list:



Choose "Add Copy Notifications" from this list. Now go to your app. You'll see in the notifications bar we've added a Copy Username and Copy Password. These buttons will help you put the username and password into the app.  You simply need to select them from the Notifications bar to copy them to your clipboard, and you can then paste your username and password into your app login!  You will have to do each separately:



[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Input Method (LastPass Keyboard)"  id="h8"]

 

 

LastPass for Android has a custom input method that you can use to log in to apps. For Android OS 4.1+ we suggest using the Android App Fill Window feature instead.


Things to note for using this feature:




To use this feature, you'll first need to manually create a  login to the app in LastPass if you don't have an entry for it or a corresponding site.  In most cases, you'll just need the username and password to be able to log in.  The next step is to enable the LastPass Input Method by opening your Vault Menu and tapping on SettingsAdvanced AND following the screen prompts to enable the keyboard in your Android Language and Input settings:


[wc_row][wc_column size="one-half" position="first"]




[/wc_column][wc_column size="one-half" position="last"]

[/wc_column][/wc_row]


 

Now, you're ready to log in to apps using LastPass' keyboard.  Open the app that you would like to log in to.  Once there, tap into the text field.  You will see a small keyboard icon in the lower right hand corner along the bottom of your screen. Tap on this and your current active keyboard options will be displayed to you. Select the LastPass option from the list and your keyboard will switch over as seen below:



Hit the LastPass AutoFill button to see a list of your  logins:



 Then, select the appropriate login, and hit the Fill button. You will have to do this in both the username field and the password field to fill each:



Your app logins will be autofilled, and you'll be able to quickly and easily log in to your Apps.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Fingerprint Scanner (on supported devices)" id="h9"]

 

 

The first step is to register your fingerprint in the settings on your Android device.


Please note that the Fingerprint scanner feature will NOT replace your master password for logging into the app (since your master password is needed to decrypt your Vault). It can only be used when being reprompted for your master password to re-gain access to the already logged in app.


To enable the feature in LastPass, go to:


Vault Menu > Security > and enable Use fingerprint to unlock


When will I see the fingerprint swipe option?




  1. When you have enabled 'Reprompt for Master Password' (globally or specific entries).

  2. When you have saved your master password in the App login page, and are returning back to the app. You must have the option in: Vault Menu > Settings  > Security, 'Lock LastPass automatically', enabled.

  3. Company policy (if you are part of a LastPass Enterprise) requires reprompt.

  4. In the App Fill Window, if the re-prompt for master password setting is set.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Advanced Sharing Feature - Shared Folders" color="Accent-Color" id="h10"]

 

 

Shared Folders are available for both  LastPass Premium and LastPass Enterprise users. Universal access and real-time updates are a priority for us, and these new features give you easier on-the-go access to data and the ability to change settings at a moment’s notice.


You can open the Manage Shared Folders feature from the Vault Menu:



From there you can tap on the Plus (floating action button) to instantly create a new Shared Folder:




 

You can also add or remove users from the Shared Folders. When you tap Edit for a Shared Folder, you can Add and Remove users to and from the Shared folder:



To change user permissions on a specific shared folder, tap the shared folder  > Edit > user's name > Edit button on the pop up menu and select the new permissions.


To remove a user from a shared folder, tap a user’s email address and tap Unshare.


Android Edit Share Folder Permissions

To add sites to the folder, simply tap a site in the vault and “Edit” the login, updating the “Folder” field to the newly-created Shared Folder.


Shared Folders and the logins added to them will sync automatically to the vaults of any LastPass users given access to the Folders.


And in addition to our existing support for the fingerprint readers on Samsung phones and tablets, we’ve also added support for the Synaptics fingerprint readers that other manufacturers are now adding to their phones, like the new XOLO Q2100.

[accordion-item title="Third Party Mobile Applications"  id="h11"]

 

 

Lastpass has provided our software to some third-party companies in order to be able to offer our program in the widest range possible. Below, we have listed three of the most popular extensions currently available.


[tabbed_section]
[tab title="Dolphin 11 Add-on" id="t1"]

Dolphin 11 Add-on


 

If you want the option of using other mobile browsers with LastPass, you can install the LastPass plugin for Dolphin 11, a feature-rich browser for your Android device.


LastPass for Dolphin is a Premium app, but can be trialed for 14 days for free.



Installing LastPass for Dolphin


First, install Dolphin on your Android device. Open the "Play Store" app, search for "Dolphin", and select "Install". Once the download is complete, you can open up the "Play Store" app again and search for "LastPass Dolphin."

Dolphin Log In


LastPass for Dolphin 11 offers much of the functionality that you find on your computer and other LastPass apps. After logging in, if you swipe left to open Dolphin extensions, and tap the LP Icon- which will be red to indicate an active login- you will be offered a number of actions to take with LastPass:


Dolphin Addon Site Menu

If you have more than one login for a site, you can tap the LastPass icon and tap "autofill" to see a full list of logins for that domain. Tapping on one of the listed entries will autofill the associated username and password:

Firefox Mobile Add-on


 

 

LastPass has an extension available for Firefox Mobile on Android OS devices. While it is functional, we recommend using our Dolphin HD extension or LastPass app for use on the Android rather than Firefox Mobile due to Firefox's limited integration. Bookmarklets are also another mobile option on Android devices. If you choose to use LastPass for Firefox Mobile, you will see behavior very similar to what you see on computer-based versions of Firefox.

Browsing using LastPass in Firefox Mobile


Browsing with LastPass in Firefox mobile is very similar to using the full LastPass extension for Firefox on a computer. You have two main ways to browse sites. The first is launching sites from your Vault, as directed above. The second option is to manually navigate to the website using Firefox Mobile URL bar and typing in the URL. While a site will autofill if you launch from your Vault, it will also autofill when manually navigated as long as the site matches a saved entry (the same as the desktop version).

LastPass Wallet has been deprecated and will no longer be available for download in the App Store and will no longer be updated.


LastPass Wallet is a free mobile app available for iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad). Wallet makes it easy to store your physical wallet on your smartphone, so you can securely backup and sync your most valuable personal information:



Wallet is built around LastPass' 'Secure Notes' feature, with templates for credit cards, passports, driver’s licenses, membership cards, bank accounts, and more. In addition to the data filled out for the note, audio clips, photos, and large blocks of text can also be stored in a Note. Any card, piece of paper, or form of data that someone would keep on their person can be stored in Wallet, where it is encrypted and automatically backed-up to the cloud with LastPass. Not only does Wallet provide a secure archive of your most valuable personal information, it will also help significantly with the process of replacing a lost physical wallet.


[tabbed_section]
[tab title="Installing"]

Existing LastPass users can simply install the app from the App Store on their iOS device and login with their usual account information. Any existing Secure Notes will automatically sync to Wallet, where they can be viewed, edited, and synced back to other locations.


New LastPass users can create an account via the app, then start creating Notes.  If new users choose to explore LastPass features with the desktop browser add-on, they can login with their newly-created account, and any data added via Wallet will be available in other locations where they access the account.


[/tab]
[tab title="Features"]

Once a user has created their account or logged in with an existing account, they can start 'digitizing' their physical wallet and take advantage of the features offered by LastPass Wallet:


Add Notes


After logging in to Wallet, a user can tap the "Add New" tab to choose a Note template:



After choosing a Note type, enter the data for the Note and tap the "Save" button when done. Notes can be created for credit cards, PINs, travel documents, insurance cards, email accounts, memberships, bank accounts, and more:



Grouping


Create categories for easily locating Notes:



Favorites


Mark frequently used Notes for quick reference in the ‘Favorites’ tab. In the 'Edit' menu for a Note, tap the heart icon to mark the Note as a Favorite.


Audio clips


When adding or editing a Note, tap the mic icon to add voice recordings or other sound clips. The clip will then be stored as an attachment in the Note.



Photo storage


When adding or editing a Note, tap the photo icon to upload or capture images. The image can then be stored in the Note as an attachment and securely backed up to the LastPass account.


[/tab]
[tab title="Settings"]

Security features are available in the Wallet 'Settings' menu to restrict access to the app and keep your data as secure as possible. By tapping on the Settings tab, a user can choose to enable a number of security options and app settings:




 

  1. Logoff:  Logs you out of your current account and takes you back to the app login screen.

  2. Refresh: Refreshes the connection with the server, so you can immediately sync any new data from LastPass Wallet to the server, and vice versa.

  3. Clear Cache: Clears the locally stored cache; this includes data stored locally that makes Offline Access possible.  This data is stored again upon your next successful online login.

  4. About:  Tells you the version number and build date of the current app.

  5. Logout on Close: When enabled, this option will log you out of your account when the app is closed.  Please note, closing the app means completely 'killing' the app or turning off your iPhone.

  6. Logoff on Idle: Setting a time limit for this option will log you out of your account when the app has been idle for 'X' minutes.  In the screenshot above, the iPhone is set to Never logoff when idle.  Setting some time limit for this, even if extremely high, is a good security measure in the case your phone is lost or stolen.

  7. Use Pin Code: Allows you to set a four digit Pin Code to be asked for upon re-entry to the app after an initial login using your Master Password.  We highly recommend you use this if you leave yourself logged into LastPass Tab when leaving the app to multi-task.

  8. Require pin after returning from background: Allows you to set a timer so you are only reprompted for your Pin Code after 'X' minutes.  In the screenshot above, the app is set to ask for the Pin Code after each time you leave the app and return to it from the background.


[/tab]
[tab title="Secure Cloud Sync"]

As always with LastPass apps and addons, all sensitive user data is encrypted and decrypted locally before being synced to LastPass for safe, easy access everywhere. A tab in the LastPass Wallet app reminds new users that they can install LastPass on their personal computer for free and login with the same account to start saving logins, generating new passwords, and more. Any data stored in LastPass Wallet will be securely synced to LastPass and made available on all browsers, computers, and mobile devices where the LastPass account is used.


[/tab]
[tab title="Availability"]

The LastPass Wallet app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore.


Currently, Wallet users can utilize 50MBs of data storage space for free. 1GB of space is available for Premium-level users. Premium users will continue to have the added functionality of viewing, editing, and logging in to stored sites via the LastPass mobile apps. Data allowance for Wallet users may change in the future if needed.

[accordion-item title="LastPass and iCab" color="Accent-Color" id="h13"]
 

 

We have joined with iCab, a leading mobile browser for iOS, to support LastPass. With iCab's update to 7.2, LastPass Premium users can enjoy direct integration with the browser, with the ability to save new sites, fill logins stored in LastPass, and fill forms with LastPass profiles.


When you launch the browser, you can log in and out of your LastPass account from iCab's settings (the gear icon). The LastPass icon will then show in the iCab URL bar, which is actually a clickable menu. From the menu, you can save a new site, fill a form with an existing profile, fill a login saved in LastPass, or launch the LastPass.com site.


iCab is available for $1.99* on the App Store for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad with iOS 5.1 or later.


Note that none of the multifactor authentication options are currently supported on iCab mobile browser.


If you have multifactor authentication enabled for your LastPass account, and have restricted mobile login, you’ll receive an error that the device is restricted.


You will need to go to your LastPass Icon > My LastPass Vault > Settings > Multifactor Authentication, ensure that you have permitted mobile access with your multifactor authentication method. Then in the "Mobile Devices" tab ensure that you uncheck the "restrict" option, if it was previously checked, then log in again on the iCab mobile browser.

Using LastPass on Windows Phone 7


**A newer version of LastPass on Windows Phone is available here: Windows Phone**

Once installed, the app allows you to view your Vault and search for your saved sites:



The Search bar at the top allows you to type in and press 'search' to bring up a specific site.

A small menu appears at the bottom of the screen, showing two icons and an ellipsis (three dots). Tapping the icon on the right allows you to select 'launch mode' (the little lightning bolt), in which tapping a site launches it in the embedded browser, or 'details mode' (the little notepad), in which tapping a site allows you to view the data saved in the site entry. Whichever is displaying indicates the mode you are currently in.

Tapping the ellipsis pulls up the menu to reveal the 'logoff' and 'about' options.

Tapping the 'browser' IE icon launches the embedded browser, allowing you to navigate to your sites and autofill. Another menu appears at the bottom with two icons - a key, for 'autofill', and a person, for 'fill forms'. Tapping on 'autofill' presents a list of all entries stored for the domain you are currently viewing. Tapping on 'fill forms' displays a list of your stored form fill profiles. Tapping a second time on the icon will close the pop-up list:

There are some known limitations with the app; autofill will only work on sites that use JavaScript, an issue which we hope Microsoft will address. The app is also currently read-only, which means you can't add or change site data, although we will adjust this for future releases.

LastPass Input Method

LastPass for Android has a custom input method that you can use to log in to apps on the Android! For Android OS 4.1+ we suggest using the Android App Fill Window feature instead.

Things to note for using this feature:

To use this feature, you'll first need to create a manual login to the app in LastPass if you don't have an entry for it or a corresponding site.  In most cases, you'll just need the username and password to be able to log in.  The next step is to Enable the LastPass Input Method via your LastPass Preferences AND your Android Keyboard Settings:

Screenshot_2013-11-04-10-03-11


 

After checking this option in your LastPass Preferences, you'll automatically be taken to your Android Keyboard settings, where you can enable the LastPass Input Method:

screenshot-1335988620567


 

Now, you're ready to log in to apps using LastPass.  Go to the app login screen that you'd like to log in to.  Once there, tap into the text field.  You must pull down the notifications menu instead (where it has the "Wi-fi, bluetooth, etc).  There should be the option in that menu that brings up the "Select input method" option where you can select the LastPass Input Method:

Go back to the Login Screen and you should now see the LastPass input method with the LP icon in the keyboard options:

Hit the LastPass AutoFill button to see a list of your  logins:

Then, select the appropriate login, and hit the Fill button. You will have to do this in both the username field and the password field to fill each:

Your app logins will be autofilled, and you'll be able to quickly and easily log in to your Apps!

Export To


We want you to feel that you have control over your data at all times, so we have created several options for backing up and storing your data. However, you will always have access to the data stored in your local LastPass Vault, even in offline mode.


There are currently several ways to export your data, although your options will vary between browsers.


1. LastPass can export into a CSV (comma separated values) file, which will send your stored data into an Excel-like spreadsheet. It is not recommended that you use this to backup your data since it is not encrypted (and LastPass keeps external backups of your encrypted data).


2. If you are a Firefox user, you can export your sites back into the built-in browser password manager.


3. One final option is to export to a 'LastPass Encrypted File'. You can then import this data into LastPass Pocket to view your data. This file can be saved locally or on a USB Drive with the Pocket executable.


Check your browser's 'Export To' submenu in the Tools menu to see available options.


4. Exporting from your Online Vault at https://lastpass.com/ will cause your browser to open a tab and display your data in plain text. This information is not stored in your browser's cache. Copy and paste this data to a plain text document and save the document.


**Please note that exporting attachments is not supported. Please back up any Secure Note attachments separately.


[/tab]
[tab title="Print" id="t14"]

To log in using the LastPass plugin, click on the icon and enter your Email and Master Password in the dialog box. Note that the icon is grey here since it is logged out:


LastPass-Login-1

If you use more than one LastPass account, you will be presented with a dropdown menu to select the account you would like to use to log in. If you wish to delete any saved email addresses, click the 'X' next to the email field. If you do not have a LastPass account, please click the "Create an account now" link to get started.


 
[accordion-item title="Login Preferences" id="h1"]
 

 

When you are prompted to log in to LastPass, you are given the following options:


Remember Email: If you are using a trusted computer, you can simplify your login process by asking LastPass to automatically fill in your email every time you are prompted to log in. LastPass selects this option by default. Uncheck the box if you are on a computer where you do not wish for your email to be remembered.


Remember Password: LastPass will save your Master Password if you check this setting. By default, LastPass will not check this box, and we don't recommend doing so unless you are on a trusted device.


I Forgot My Password, Help: If you go to log in and cannot remember your Master Password, click on this link to enter your email and have your password hint sent to you. The information that we email you is only what you entered as your password hint when you registered your Master Password. We do not have access to your Master Password and therefore cannot send you more than your password hint, so you may need to initiate the Account Recovery process.


Create an Account: If you are using LastPass for the first time or wish to create a new account, this link will launch the account creation process. You will be directed to a confirmation page, where you can choose to 'Create an Account'. In order to create an account, you must enter a valid email address, a Master Password, and agree to the terms and conditions. We recommend that you also enter a useful password reminder, although you should not enter your actual Master Password as your password hint.

[accordion-item title="Cookies" id="h3"]
 

 

Cookies need to be enabled in your browser in order for the LastPass plugin to stay logged in and keep your browser session active, particularly if you want to be able to close your browser and re-launch it with LastPass still logged in.


If you disabled cookies in your browser, you will be logged out when you exit the browser and will be required to re-enter your Master Password to log in, unless you have the "remember password" option checked.


If you have an extension or software that regularly wipes browser cookies, you will be logged off of LastPass, or you will receive red notifications telling you that there's been an "Error contacting the server", and asking you to log in again. Enabling 3rd party cookies, or setting an exception for LastPass, will fix this.

Printing

LastPass provides you several ways for you to back up or store your data, one of which is printing.

Only the accounts in the current Identity will be printed, so you must be in the 'All' Identity to print all stored data.

To begin, click on the LastPass Icon and then the Tools submenu, where you can select 'Print':

print

 

Under the Print menu, you can choose to print either your Sites or your Secure Notes.

After selecting either Sites or Secure Notes, LastPass will launch the Print window, where you can sort by column in ascending and descending order by clicking the column header:

One Time Passwords

 

One Time Passwords


 

If you are using an untrusted public computer and need to access your LastPass data but are hesitant to do so because of potential keyloggers, LastPass provides One Time Passwords (OTPs) as one option for securely accessing your account.


While using a trusted computer, go to https://lastpass.com/otp.php to create a list of random passwords that can be used only once to log into LastPass. You must be logged into the plugin to manage your OTPs. From this page, you will be given the option to Add a New One Time password, Clear All OTPs, or Print your OTPs:


OTP creation page


 

Each time you generate a new OTP, it will be added to your list. These passwords can be printed or carried with you on a portable storage device. You can then revisit the above page to login using this password and you can be certain that, even if captured, the password will not allow access into your account in subsequent attempts because it expires after you login with it once.


You can even use OTPs with another form of multi-factor authentication (Yubikey, Google Authenticator, Sesame or GRID), to be even more secure when you are not using a trusted computer.

Your LastPass Vault

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

 

The LastPass Vault is a page that allows you to see all of your saved data. It is a locally-hosted file so it is secure and fast.


vault


 


[accordion-item title="Your Local and Online Vaults" id="h2"]
 

 

There are two ways to access your LastPass Vault. The first is through the LastPass browser Icon, and click on "My LastPass Vault":


icondropdown


 

The Local Vault that you launch through your browser plugin gives you access to all features of LastPass, as well as Preferences and Settings as they apply to the plugin.


We recommend that you access your stored data through your Local Vault via your LastPass browser plugin. However, if you are not on a computer that has the LastPass plugin installed, you can access an online version of your Vault by logging into https://lastpass.com:


signin


Accessing your Vault through the website allows you to view your online LastPass account, as well as control global Settings.


LastPass securely syncs the data stored in your account, so that the information you see through your Local Vault and your Online Vault are the same.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Local Vault" id="h3"]
 

 

Your sites are organized by Folders (groups) with your Favorites and Recently used at the top for easy access. If you click on the folder icon (or arrow), you can expand/collapse any folder in your Vault.


 Expanding your folder allows you to see the saved entries (sites) within those folder. You can click on the name of the entry, and LastPass will open the corresponding URL in a new tab (or browser) and autologin using your stored username and password:




Each site entry in your Vault has the option to Edit edit , Share share and Delete delete. By clicking  Edit Icon (edit) you will launch the 'Edit Site Information' dialog box, where you can view details for the specific site:



 

To sort the entries in your vault  you can use the drop down at the top right of the vault labelled 'Sort By':



As you type in the 'Search My Vault' field above your sites, LastPass searches and filters your sites in the main window of the vault.


Several advanced features are available to help organize and administer your sites easily. You may select multiple sites (by clicking on the check box in the right corner of your site entries) and then you may drag and drop your sites to new Groups. You also have the ability to right-click while multiple sites are selected to perform various tasks on all sites at once:



From the Vault drop down menu next to your email, you can view your Account status page, Toggle the visuals, access our help center or log out:

[accordion-item title="Online Vault" id="h4"]
 

 

Your Online Vault allows you to access your stored LastPass data on computers that do not have the installed plugin(s). From the Online Vault you can control many of your global LastPass settings, as well as view, edit, and delete your stored information, much the same way you would on your Local Vault.


The Online Vault is organized similarly to the Local Vault, with your sites organized by Group in a searchable interface:



[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Offline Access to your LastPass Vault" id="h5"]
 

 

Offline access to your LastPass Account can be an important component to using LastPass.  You may find yourself in a situation where you need access to your secure information, but do not have an internet connection readily available. You can gain offline access to your data using almost any browser extension or application you would normally use to access LastPass.  We also offer LastPass Pocket, a standalone app dedicated to providing secure offline access to your data.



How to Utilize Offline Access in Your Browser Extension or Mobile Application


The key to gaining offline access in your LastPass browser extension or mobile app is to have logged into the extension or app at least one time while you have had an internet connection.   This ensures that your computer or device has cached a local version of your encrypted data to the local drive. This is the data that LastPass loads when you login to LastPass while offline.   Any LastPass browser extension or mobile application can be logged into without an internet connection, and will default to this mode when no connection is present.


Please note these special options and conditions:


- In each browser extension, if you clear your LastPass Local Cache (LastPass Toolbar Icon -> More Options -> Advanced -> Clear Local Cache), you will have to log in online once more to recreate your cache before you can log in using offline mode again.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="LastPass Pocket" id="h6"]
 

 

LastPass Pocket is a stand-alone application (available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux) that can be installed on a USB memory device, allowing you to carry your LastPass data around with you. Pocket essentially provides backup capability and offline access for your Vault. LastPass Pocket can access your data through two main methods:


1 .  LastPass Pocket can access the locally cached version of your data from your LastPass browser extension by choosing the appropriate path to the cached data. This is the same data that the LastPass browser plugin uses for offline access. LastPass Pocket can access this cache from Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari and Opera.


2.   LastPass Pocket can access your data from a LastPass Encrypted File that you have exported from your LastPass Local Vault. You can export this file by going to your LastPass Browser Extension Icon -> More Options -> Advanced -> Export -> LastPass Encrypted File.  Alternatively, you can use your offline cache already stored on your computer. The offline cache is an SXML file and you can find it by following the advice here. You can then open this file using Pocket:




For more information on LastPass Pocket, check out our LastPass Pocket page.



Testing Offline Access


You can test Offline Access to your LastPass Vault by disconnecting your computer or device from its internet connection and logging in to LastPass or LastPass Pocket.


If you are using a computer, you can easily disconnect from the internet by unplugging the Ethernet cable from your computer's Ethernet port. You will also want to temporarily disable all wireless connections you use for Wi-Fi. After this, try logging in to your LastPass browser extension or LastPass Pocket.


On your smartphone or tablet, disable all mobile data or Wi-Fi connections (setting your phone or tablet to Airplane mode can accomplish this on most devices) and log in to the LastPass app via your data in offline mode.



Using Offline Access with Multi-Factor Authentication


If you are using any form of Multi-Factor Authentication, you need to make sure that you have Enabled Offline Access in the settings for your particular authentication device.  Without allowing offline access, you will not store a local cache for LastPass to access when there is no connection present.


Multifactor authentication cannot not be prompted in offline logins (with the exception of Yubikey and Sesame).


Therefore, please note, if you Enable Offline Access while using a multifactor, you will be able to log in without using your Authenticator code. And in cases of a connectivity issue, LastPass may log in offline first, before establishing connectivity to your Online Vault and prompting for your authenticator code.  This may cause LastPass to autofill any login credentials you have saved in LastPass for the current page you are on, and then pop the prompt.



Offline Access - Multiple Yubikeys


When you have multiple yubikeys enabled for your LastPass account, only the Yubikey in slot 1 in Account Settings > Multifactor Options tab > Yubikey is used to log in offline.  It is because that key is used to doubly encrypt your data.  If you use another yubikey, you will see a blank vault in offline mode.

Offline Access to Your LastPass Vault

Favorites

LastPass allows you to classify some sites as 'Favorites'. In addition to their normal grouping, they will also be shown in the Favorites group which is at the top of your 'My LastPass Vault' page for easy access:

vaultfav

 

You can also view your Favorites from your LastPass Icon menu, and clicking on 'Sites':

iconfav

This is often helpful if you find yourself always checking email, opening your financial site and logging into a social networking site first thing in the morning - all of this can be accomplished with a single click of 'Open Favorites'.

A site that you mark as Favorite will show up in two places in your Vault - in your Favorites folder and in its Group folder. This is not a duplicate entry, but rather the same site displayed in two locations. If you delete the site in your Favorites, it will be deleted in its other location as well.

Marking a Site as Favorite


To make one of your sites a Favorite, you can click on the 'Make This a Favorite' checkbox when you first add the site to LastPass:

fav3

 

 

Using Folders for Organization

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
 
 

LastPass allows you to organize your sites in your Vault according to Folders.  For example, you may want to organize your sites with names like 'Email' or 'Financial'':



 
[accordion-item title="Viewing Your Folders" id="h0"]
 
 

When you open your Vault, your Folders may be partially or fully collapsed. Select the Expand All / Collapse All button  to simultaneously expand or collapse all of your folders within your Vault to view all sites:



If you only wish to view one folder, click on the folder name to expand it:



If you would like LastPass to open all of your sites within a particular Folder and auto-log you in to all of them simultaneously, right click over the Folder name and select 'Open All'.  LastPass will then open each site stored in the folder in a new window or tab and autolog you in.


 
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Adding a Folder" id="h1"]
 
 

When creating a new folder,  click on the red 'Plus' button (Floating Action Button, enter in the name of the folder and click 'OK':



 
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Editing A Folder" id="h2"]
 
 

There are several ways you can edit your Folders.


To move a single site entry to another Folder from your Local Vault, you can right-click on the site, select 'Move to Folder', and type in the Folder name (Please note that you will need to be signed into your Vault from your LastPass browser icon, not https://lastpass.com/) :


 


You can also click 'Edit' in the right-click menu for a site, where you will see a dropdown menu for selecting a Folder:



 
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Your Favorites Folder" id="h3"]
 
 

You can check those sites that you use most often as Favorites from the bottom of the entry:



This will add the entry to the Favorites Folder at the top of your Vault:



 
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Grouping Sites In Sub-Folders" id="h4"]
 
 

There are two ways to create Sub-Folders for your sites.


First, when adding or editing a site, type the name of the Parent Folder followed by a backslash and then the name of the Sub-Folder that you would like to create underneath it :



 

You can also create a Sub-Folder from within your Local Vault by right-clicking on a  Folder name and selecting 'Create Sub-Folder':



 
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Identities" id="h5"]
 
 

LastPass Identities allows you to create different views of your LastPass account. The Identities feature is most commonly used to hide some of your sites when you log in to LastPass from a particular location. A common example might be that you create a 'Home' and a 'Work' Identity to keep your site entries separate. Another way you can use Identities is to create separate ones for each member of your house. This is an easy way for multiple people to share a single LastPass account, but keep their sites separate.


To create a new LastPass Identity, open your vault page and click on the More Options link at the bottom-left of the vault. Then click on Manage Identities.



This will open your Identities page and allow you to see all current Identities as well as the one which is currently active, indicated by a green check mark.



After naming your new Identity, you can then assign which sites, Secure Notes secure_note, and Form Fill formfillprofiles are visible for this Identity by dragging and dropping items from one list to another:



Before submitting the new Identity, you can also check 'Require Password Reprompt' if you would like to enter your Master Password every time you switch over to the Identity.


You can also delete an Identity from your Online Vault by going to the Identities page and clicking on the trash icon next to the entry.  Do not delete an Identity while you are currently using it!  If you do this, you can run into issues where you may need to reinstall the LastPass plugin to default to the  'All' Identity.  This is not a hard process, but best avoided if possible.


 

Managing Your Identities


 

To use a particular Identity, click on your avatar icon in your Vault and choose your Identity from the drop down:



 

You can also switch your Identity from your LastPass Icon favicon in the More Options submenu by clicking on the Identity name:



 

 

When you switch Identities, LastPass will remember this setting for all subsequent logins into LastPass until you choose to switch back to All or to another custom Identity.

Identities

LastPass Identities allows you to create different views of your LastPass account.

The Identities feature is most commonly used to hide some of your sites when you log in to LastPass from a particular location. A common example might be that you create a 'Home' and a 'Work' Identity.

Add An Identity


To create a new LastPass Identity, you can click on the 'Add Identity' menu item from your LastPass Icon under the Tools submenu:

ident

Or you can click over to your Identities tab in your Online Vault and choose 'Add Identity' from the left-hand menu:

ident2

After naming your new Identity, you can then assign which sites, Secure Notes, and Form Fill profiles are visible for this Identity by dragging and dropping items from one list to another:

ident3

Before submitting the new Identity, you can also check 'Require Password Reprompt' if you would like to enter your Master Password every time you switch over to the Identity.

You can also delete an Identity from your Online Vault by going to the Identities tab.  Do not delete an Identity while you are currently using it!  If you do this, you can run into issues where you may need to reinstall the LastPass plugin to default 'All' Identity.  This is not a hard process, but best avoided if possible.

Managing Your Identities


To use a particular Identity, select from the Identities tab in your Vault and your Identity will be switched:

ident2

 

You can also switch your Identity from your LastPass Icon in the Tools submenu by clicking on the Identity name:

ident4

 

 

When you switch Identities, LastPass will remember this setting for all subsequent logins into LastPass until you choose to switch back to All or to another custom Identity.

You can always quickly view which Identity you are using by clicking on your Icon and checking within the parentheses:

ident5

Another way you can use Identities is to create separate ones for each member of your house. This is an easy way for multiple people to share a single LastPass account, but keep their sites separate.

Account History

[accordion openfirst=true scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
[accordion-item title="Account History" id="h0"]
 
 

The 'History' feature allows you to view all logins and events for your LastPass account, and the IP addresses associated with them. History is particularly useful if you're concerned about unauthorized access to your LastPass account.




Accessing Account History from your Online Vault


 

To access History, you can go to your LastPass Icon > My LastPass Vault > in the left menu, click "More Options" at the bottom > History:


account_history

After selecting History, a dialog box opens, displaying your account's login history:


Account History

You can then select a date range to filter your results - by default the current day's logins are displayed. The records show the date the login was used, the name of the domain, an associated Group name, the IP address from which the LastPass login was used, and the DNS. Selecting 'Events' for the view option allows you to view records of Form Fills, disabling and enabling of multifactor authentication, changes to usernames or passwords in stored entries, and other actions.


Note that LastPass only records logins and events completed from within your account. If a site stored in LastPass is accessed without using LastPass to autofill or autologin, LastPass will not record the event in History.


To remove the records in History, select 'Clear History'.


 

Disabling History


To disable the History feature, go to your Account Settings dialog (accessed via the LastPass Icon > Preferences > Account Settings or by clicking on 'Settings' in the left-hand actions menu in the Online Vault) and uncheck  the default option 'Keep track of login and form fill history'.

Adding & Filling Sites

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

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.


[accordion-item expand="1" title="Adding a Site" id="h0"]
 

 

[tabbed_section]
[tab title="Automatically Adding A Site" id="t1"]

The easiest and best way to add new sites to LastPass is to go to the site and enter your credentials as you normally would. Before logging in, click on the 19x19_Red field icon to produce the dropdown:Field icon drop down


 

Choose Save credentials for this site to continue to the next Save Site dialog:

[accordion-item title="Manually Saving a Site with Save All Entered Data" id="h1"]
 

 

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.
[tabbed_section]
[tab title="Save All Entered Data"]


To save using Save All Entered Data, do the following:





    1. Enter your login data onto the page (do not login yet!)

    2. Click on the LastPass Icon favicon > Sites > Save All Entered Data
      3_SAED2

    3. Within the LastPass browser extension for Internet Explorer, Click on the LastPass Icon favicon > Tools > Save All Entered Dataie_saed

    4. 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:

Login Problems and Save All Entered Data

Login Problems and Save All Entered Data


If LastPass is experiencing a problem logging into a particular site*,  please try the following:



*Flash and Silverlight based logins are not supported by LastPass
 

1) Open the 'My LastPass Vault' page from the Icon toolbar to view all of your sites:saed_1


 

2) Find the site and click on the edit Edit icon to launch the Edit Site dialog box:editsite_3


3) Verify that the username and password fields are filled and correct. If this site was imported from your browser, there is a chance that the credentials were outdated or incorrect. If you update the login information, try to login again via LastPass to see if your problem has been fixed.


4) Manually copy/paste the username and password into the login form on the site and verify that you can login using these credentials. If this does not work, then incorrect information was likely stored in LastPass.


5) Advanced users may want to try the Edit Form Fields link in the Edit Site dialog at this stage. Average users might want to delete the account and resave using the 'Save All Entered Data' method (before you submit the login form).  You can read more about Editing Form Fields at our Editing Page.



Save All Entered Data


If LastPass is still experiencing a problem logging into a particular site, or there is a site with a multiple page login (username and password are on 2 different pages),  please use the Save All Entered Data function (SAED).


In Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari and Opera




  1. Load the page that you want to save

  2. Enter your credentials, but do not submit

  3. Click on your LastPass browser extension icon

  4. Click on Tools (see image)

  5. Click on Save All Entered Data

  6. Then hit save to save the new entry to your vault.

*Note: If the site is launched from the LastPass Vault or from the LastPass Icon, it will ignore ‘Disable AutoFill’.
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Editing Form Fields" id="h2"]
 

 

 While in the Edit dialog, click the Edit Form Fields icon Edit. Clicking this option will take you to another edit dialog:Edit Form Fields Window


Allows you to manipulate and change any fields and data that LastPass may have saved when it automatically recorded the site login credentials.  Sometimes LastPass can accidentally pick up an extra field on a site (like a Search field), which can complicate logins.  Using Edit Form Fields, you can delete any extra data not relevant to the site login.  This ability can be useful when you are having trouble autofilling or autologging into a site entry using LastPass.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Manually Saved Sites" id="h3"]
 

 

Editing a manually saved site entry is as easy as editing an automatically saved site entry. The only difference with manually saved entries is that you will not see a separate 'Edit Form Fields' button. The form fields appear directly in the site entry, along with username and password controls. Manually saved entries look like this:


Add Site Window When Using SAED
 

Manually saved entries will pick up ALL fields on a login page, so manually saving a site and then deleting the extra fields can be another helpful tool for problematic logins by eliminating any variable fields that might interfere with the AutoFill or AutoLogin functions.  Additionally, manually saved entries are static entries and will never automatically try to save an extra field like automatically saved entries sometimes can.  The information you see in the Edit dialog is how the entry will always be unless you change it.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Password, Username, and Note History" id="h4"]
 

 

If you decide to update your username or password for a particular site, LastPass will log the change. The next time you launch the Edit dialog box from your vault, you will see a history History icon next to the password and/or username and/or note fields.
Entry History


This allows you to easily track changes to your accounts, especially for those which you should make an effort to change the password on a regular basis:

Note: LastPass only keeps the last five changes made to your login entry.

Importing Passwords

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

Once you have installed the LastPass browser extension, you can import your stored login data from your previous password manager using one of the methods below.


[accordion-item title="Importing using pre-established formats" id="h1"]

To begin, click on the LastPass Icon, click the More Options on the drop-down menu....


More Options on LastPass Dropdown Menu

and click Advanced, then  Import:



You will then be shown a web page with a drop down menu for every password manager format that we support. Since importing from each password manager is different, and changing, we have provided instructions for each. Click on the password manager's name, and choose 'Instructions' to view them.


We continue to add formats, so check the version you are running if you do not see the format you need.


After updating, if you would like to organize your sites into Folders or if you would like to delete some of the imported sites, it is easiest to perform these group actions through the Vault. You can then use the check boxes to select many sites at once and perform an action on them.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Importing from a Generic CSV File" id="h2"]

If LastPass does not support importing from your current password manager, you may be able to import using a Generic CSV file. Try seeing if your current password manager has an option to export to a CSV file.


If you use your own spreadsheet instead, it is important that the title of the columns match those in the template! The column titles can include any of the following: url, username, password, extra, name, grouping, type, hostname.


Fill the columns with the values you'd like for each entry (leave blank if the value is not relevant). Please note that 'extra' means either (1) the notes section of a site entry or (2) the body of a secure note, and 'grouping' is the group (or folder) where you would like the item to be stored in your vault.


To import, click on the LastPass Icon > More Options > Import > Other. On the next page, choose > Generic CSV file from the dropdown. If you do not see an option to import from a file on your computer but to copy and paste the data instead, this means that you are currently missing the binary component. Install the binary component as mentioned here. Alternatively, you can copy and paste the data into the box. Please note that the data must be in a comma delimitated format while pasting. The best way to achieve this format is to open your CSV file in a plain text document such as Notepad or TextEdit.

**Note that on Mac computers, creating the import spreadsheet using Excel may cause reformatting issues that will prevent a proper import. Make sure to edit your content in TextEdit or another text editor.


[tabbed_section]
[tab title="Importing Sites"]

To import Site data you must define at least the following values: “url” (typically this will be the login url), “username”, “password” and “name”. “Extra” and “Group” are other fields that you might consider. To import data from a csv file, we suggest you use our Import Template found here: Sample Import.


[/tab]
[tab title="Importing Secure Notes"]

To import Secure Note data, enter the values as follows: “url” = http://sn, “extra” = the contents of the note. Give the note a “name”, and then consider adding “group”. It is important to leave the username and password columns blank. Please refer to the example import formats found here: Sample Secure Note Import.


[/tab]
[tab title="Import Server Logins"]

To import data as a Server Secure Note, enter the values as follows: “url” = http://sn, “type” = server. You must also populate “hostname”, “username”, “password” and “name”. In this case, you must enter the username and password in the actual username and password columns of the template, rather than the 'extra' section. Consider adding “group”.
Please click here to download our Sample Import, which includes examples of all 3 of the aforementioned data types.


[/tab]
[tab title="Importing Form Fill Profiles"]

To import Form Fill Profile data, you'll need to setup a CSV file with specific headers. Please download the example file: Form Fill Import for the headers needed.
[/tab]
[/tabbed_section]
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Passive Imports" id="h3"]


 

 

Certain password managers do not support export functions. In these cases you can still use LastPass to pick up this data through a 'passive' import. This entails running both password managers simultaneously, having your former password manager enter your login credentials into a site, and then using LastPass to pick up the filled website entry. Running LastPass side by side with your current password manager can accomplish this.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Importing and Exporting Wi-Fi Passwords" id="h4"]

On Windows and Mac OS X, LastPass has the ability to import Wi-Fi passwords stored within your computer into LastPass as Secure Notes.  On Windows, LastPass also has the ability to export Wi-Fi passwords stored as LastPass Secure Notes to your computer.


Please note that in order to use this functionality on Windows, you must allow Windows to manage your Wi-Fi connections.  Third party Wi-Fi connection managers such as the one provided by your Wi-Fi adapter's manufacturer (Intel, etc.) are not supported.



Setup


In order to import and export Wi-Fi passwords, your computer must have a Wi-Fi adapter installed.


If you would like to import and export from the LastPass browser extension on Windows, you will need to re-run the LastPass Universal Installer.  This is due to the fact that we need to install a utility that requires administrator privileges in order to import and export Wi-Fi passwords.  You can re-run the LastPass Universal Installer from:


https://lastpass.com/installer/


You will also need to ensure you're running the binary version of the LastPass browser extension.  If you're not, in Firefox or Chrome, go to:


https://lastpass.com/dl/


In Safari or Opera, please use the Universal Installer:


https://lastpass.com/download



Windows XP and Windows Server 2003


To import and export Wi-Fi passwords on these versions of Windows, you must be running the latest service pack (Windows XP Service Pack 3 or Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2).


These versions of Windows require the Wireless Zero Configuration service to be running in order to import and export Wi-Fi passwords.  If it's not running, you may encounter an erroneous "No Wi-Fi adapter was detected on this computer.  This feature requires a Wi-Fi adapter." message.  Please see the following Microsoft article for instructions on starting it:


http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms706593%28v=vs.85%29.aspx



Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008


These versions of Windows require a third party utility named PsExec (part of Windows Sysinternals and published by Microsoft) to decrypt Wi-Fi passwords.  PsExec's license prohibits LastPass from embedding it, but you can download and install it yourself:


1) Go to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553


2) Click "Download PsTools"


3) PsTools.zip will download.  It contains a bunch of files, but the only file of importance to LastPass is PsExec.exe.  You'll need to extract PsExec.exe and copy it into the LastPass installation directory.  This directory is typically C:\Program Files\LastPass\ on 32-bit Windows and C:\Program Files (x86)\LastPass\ on 64-bit Windows, but you may have changed it when you ran the LastPass Universal Installer.



Importing


Importing is supported on Windows and Mac OS X.


- Internet Explorer/Firefox:  LastPass Icon -> Tools -> Import From -> Wi-Fi Passwords.


- Chrome/Opera:  LastPass Icon -> Tools -> Import From -> Other, then select Wi-Fi Passwords in the Source drop-down and click Import.


- Safari:  LastPass Icon -> Advanced -> Import, then select Wi-Fi Passwords in the Source drop-down and click Import.



Exporting


Exporting is supported on Windows only.


- Internet Explorer/Firefox/Chrome,/Opera:  LastPass Icon -> Tools -> Export To -> Wi-Fi Passwords


- Safari:  LastPass Icon -> Advanced -> Export, then click the Wi-Fi Passwords button.

Importing from RoboForm 7


 

Siber Systems has changed the export process in the newest version of RoboForm – version 7 does not include the option to export your logins with the full site URL. Although you will still be able to export your passcards, they will not be imported to LastPass correctly. Without the full URL of the site, LastPass doesn’t know where the login fields are, and autofill will likely be dysfunctional.  You will have to add them manually.


Note: You can also use the passive import method



How to import your passwords from RoboForm:


1. First, you will want to download RoboForm 6 on this site here (you will want to use a browser other than Firefox, which does not support this older version)


Please note: LastPass is not responsible for the maintenance of this website. Please contact Roboform directly if you have any concerns or questions about downloading an old version.


2. To export, find the RoboForm icon in your browser and go to Logins > Print List, which will cause a new dialog box to appear:


roboform 1


3. You will then be prompted for your Roboform Master Password:


roboform 2


4. Click "Save" and then set the file type to .html (html files) :




5. Open the RoboForm file with Notepad (Right-click > Open with > Notepad)


6. Click File > Save As and select "UTF-8" from the "Encoding" dropdown and save it:



7. Open your browser and click your LastPass Icon > More Options > Advanced > Import > Other > and then select Generic CSV and copy and paste the data from the UTF-8 file you just saved.


roboform 6


roboform 7


 

If you receive the Error Message: Found 0 items or could not parse data” when attempting to import:


- Open your exported file in Notepad again


- Right-click > Select All > Copy on your data


- Login to the online Vault at https://lastpass.com


- LastPass Vault > Tools > Import > Roboform, and paste the copied data into the box and click 'Check Data for Sites'


This message can also mean that you were attempting to import non-English characters from RoboForm to LastPass. Please switch back to UTF-16 in these instances (open the RoboForm file with Notepad > File > Save As > Encoding: UTF-16). If you do not see the UTF-16 option, try unicode or unicode big endian. If you continue to have problems, please submit a Support Ticket and we will be happy to assist you further.


You can repeat these same steps to import your RoboForm Safenotes and Identities.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Autofilling after Importing" id="h6"]

Once imported, you might notice that some websites do not autofill right away. This is because LastPass needs to "see" the website in order to capture the exact username and password fields, as they differ from website to website. When you visit the website for the first time after importing, use the field icons to force fill the credentials and login. It will autofill every time after that.

Importing and Exporting Wi-Fi Passwords

Local & Global Security Options

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

LastPass provides a safer online experience that helps protect your identity by allowing you to create unique, complex passwords for all of your sites, in addition to securely storing this information using local encryption. You then only have to remember a single strong password, your LastPass Master Password.


However, LastPass knows that one size does not fit all when balancing security and ease of use, so we allow you to decide by providing a full range of security options. The default values chosen will certainly not satisfy everyone and we strongly encourage you to review the settings in both your Extension Preferences and your Account Settings shortly after creating your account.


[accordion-item title="Localized Security Options" id="h1"]
 

Logoff when browser is closed: This option controls if LastPass will automatically logoff when you close your browser. If selected, you will have to explicitly log in and provide your LastPass Master Password after a browser restart. It is currently defaulted to unselected, but can be managed via your Extension Preferences.


Logoff after idle: If you want LastPass to logoff after the computer has been idle (no mouse or keyboard activity) after a predefined amount of time, select this option in your Extension Preferences. This setting is unchecked by default.


Require Password Reprompt: If you want to protect a particular site, Secure Note, or Form Fill Profile so that any access using the information stored in LastPass requires your Master Password, you can click this checkbox after launching the Edit window for the entry. This provides very specified control of individual sites, such as a bank login, where you may want additional security. Please note reprompt is not as strong as logging off, we'd recommend utilizing the above logoff options to fully protect your data


Clear Clipboard after use: When using LastPass's menu items to copy a username or password, this option controls how long they will stay on the clipboard before being automatically cleared. This option is defaulted to on in Firefox and IE only, in the Advanced tab of your Extension Preferences.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Global Security Options" id="h2"]
 

Website auto-logoff timeout: This option, which can be managed from your Account Settings on the General tab, controls how long your session exists on the server, allowing you to automatically log in when using the plugin. This assumes that your session does not get destroyed by methods such as explicitly logging out or closing the browser when 'Logoff when browser is closed' is set.


Bookmarklet auto-logoff timeout: Similar to 'Website auto-logoff timeout' except applies to LastPass bookmarklets. This preference can also be managed from your Account Settings on the General tab.


Prompt for Master Password when: Global setting that controls if Master Password must be entered when performing tasks such as logging into a site, editing a site, viewing passwords, editing a Form Fill Profile, etc. You can manage these preferences in the Security tab of your Account Settings. Checking one of these boxes will apply the action to every site, secure note, or form fill profile that you have. If you want more granular control, use the Require Password Reprompt method described above.


Kill other sessions on login: If you leave your browser session open and polling is enabled, you'll be logged out of the other session. If your browser session is closed, but you leave yourself logged into LastPass, this can also be helpful (e.g., your browser is closed at work, and you login from home with this setting enabled, you will be required to login the next time you open up your browser at work). You can enable this setting in the General tab of your Account Settings; the setting is disabled by default. You must have 'polling' enabled in the plugins to be effective; you can verify that it is by going to the Advanced tab of your Extension Preferences.


Send password change emails: Alerts you via email if your LastPass account email address or Master Password has been changed, or if any of your sites' usernames or passwords have been changed in LastPass. You can manage these settings in the Security tab of your Account Settings.

Multifactor authentication refers to a device that can be enabled for use with your LastPass account, and requires a second step before you can gain access to your account. Multifactor authentication devices help protect your account from keyloggers and other threats - even if your master password were captured, someone would be unable to gain access to your account without this second form of authentication.

[accordion-item title="Equivalent Domains" id="h7"]

Account Settings Equivalent Domains tab

If you access multiple websites from a single provider, adding these sites as equivalent domains allows you to use just one username and password.


To add domains as equivalent do the following:




  1. Go to the LastPass Vault > Account Settings > Equivalent Domains.

  2. Click Add

  3. Input domains separated by commas. Note that only top level domains should be submitted. For example, lets say you have two sites you would like to make equivalent: http://subdomain.example.com/path and http://sample.com. Your input should look like:
    example.com,sample.comNote that:
    subdomain.example.com,sample.com
    will not work as subdomain.example.com still includes 'subdomain', which is too low of a domain to be accepted.


You can delete an equivalent domain at any time by clicking the "x" next to the entry.


Equivalent Domains labeled as 'Global' mean that these domains are set by LastPass. These Global domains are updated from time to time.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="URL Rules" id="h8"]
 

If you have multiple logins for a particular domain, LastPass fills in the closest URL match by default but will show all sites from that domain in its matching list:


Matching site list when clicking on LastPass field icon


This behavior can be changed to only show sites that match particular hosts/paths by managing your URL Rules. To manage your URL Rules, launch your Account Settings. In the menu that opens, select the last 'URL Rules' tab:


Account Settings URL Rules tab


Path


If you specify a URL Rule with a path, then only sites that match this path will be shown. For example, LastPass created a default URL Rule for google apps with path=/a/. This causes you to only see the appropriate logins when you visit google.com/a/aaa versus google.com/a/bbb.


Host Matching


If a URL Rule is created with exact host matching, then you will only be presented with logins that match the exact host for that domain. For example, if you create a rule with domain=facebook.com and specify exact host matching=yes, then when visiting www.facebook.com, you will only see sites saved from www.facebook.com, but will not see sites saved from login.facebook.com.


Port Matching


This can be used to specify that you are running different apps at the same host but on different ports and that it uses different accounts. So that when you visit https://example.com:8443/, it uses different credential sets than https://example.com:9443/.


You can delete a URL Rule at any time by clicking the grey 'x' next to the domain entry in the URL Rules tab.


By default, LastPass stores a URL Rule for some sites for your convenience. Sites are added and updated from time to time.

Extension Preferences

We select the default settings for your Advanced options that we feel will optimize your browsing experience with LastPass. However, you may wish to change these settings according to your security needs or personal preferences.

Advanced preference options will vary from browser to browser; not all of the below-listed preferences may be offered as options in your current browser(s).

To access your Advanced preferences, go to your LastPass Icon, select Preferences, and click on the Advanced tab in the left-hand menu:

Advanced

Automatically login to sites if time since last login > (seconds): LastPass is set to automatically log you back in to a site after 25 seconds if you have been logged off.


Warn before filling insecure forms: If you are concerned about security when filling out a web form, you can enable LastPass to notify you of a possibly insecure form; this setting is disabled by default.  This setting determines what an insecure form is by distinguishing between GET and POST submission forms.


Respect AutoComplete=off: Allow websites to disable the Autofill feature. This option is disabled by default.


Poll Server for account changes: By default, LastPass will poll the server every 15 minutes to check for changes to your LastPass account.


Clear Clipboard after use: LastPass is set to clear your clipboard after a default amount of time. If you've been copy/pasting  your secure data into login fields or web forms, this ensures that your data cannot be compromised by being left on the clipboard. You must have the binary component installed for this option.


Recently Used Site List: LastPass automatically shows ten of your most recently visited LastPass-stored sites under the 'Recently Used' submenu. However, this preference option allows you to customize the number of recently used sites that appear in your 'Recently Used' submenu. If you set the value to zero, the 'Recently Used' submenu will disappear from your Icon menu.


Search within secure notes: By default, LastPass gives you the ability to search within your Secure Notes.


Open Login dialog when start browser: LastPass does not enable this feature by default. By enabling this option, you will be automatically prompted to log in to LastPass upon opening your browser. We recommend this setting if you use LastPass every time you open your browser and prefer not to have to click the icon to log in.


Save a disabled One Time Password locally for Account Recovery: By default, LastPass stores a One Time Password to aid you in the Account Recovery process, should you forget your Master Password.


It is important to note that if an attacker is able to obtain your locally stored OTP (and decrypt it while on your pc) and gain access to your email account, they can compromise your data if this option is turned on. We feel this threat is low enough that we recommend the average user not to disable this setting.


Share login state between other browsers: If you frequently use more than one browser, you can set LastPass to share login states between all browsers with the plugin installed on your operating system. For example, if you use both Firefox and Chrome with the shared login state enabled, you can log in to one browser and automatically be logged in to the other. When you are done with your browsing session, logging out of one will also log you out of the other. The shared login state is enabled by default to make your browsing experience faster and easier. The binary component must be installed to make this option available.


Enable New Login Screen:  Enables the new login screen in Chrome that pops out directly from the LastPass icon in the browser toolbar.  De-selecting this option reverts to the previous login process, where selecting Login from the icon launched a full tab in Chrome and allows you to login there.


Clear Filled Fields on Logoff:  Enabling this preference will automatically clear any fields that have been filled by LastPass on the current page your browser is on when you log off LastPass.


Show Matching Sites in top Level Menu:  Selecting this option will show matching sites for the current page your browser is on in the top level of the dropdown menu from the LastPass browser toolbar icon.  This is where matching sites previously used to appear in 2.0 versions of LastPass.  In LastPass 3.0 versions, matching sites show under the "Show Matching Sites" option on the top level of the dropdown menu, and are only one click away.


Language: Allows you to change the Default language setting for the browser plugin. This change will only apply to the plugin whose settings you are editing, so you will need to modify the selection on all LastPass browser extensions that you use in addition to the Online Vault language setting.

Account Security - Settings

The 'Security' tab in your Account Settings controls your global LastPass security settings:

You will need to enter your Master Password to confirm any updates made to your Security preferences.

LastPass is set to 'Normal' security level by default, but you can click on the 'Medium High' or "High' options to increase your security level, or 'Custom' select your security options.

Global Security Preferences


After launching your Account Settings dialog, click the second tab from the left to view the following options:


Prompt for LastPass Master Password when: Master Password reprompt is a global setting that controls if the Master Password must be entered when performing tasks such as logging into a site, editing a site, viewing passwords, editing a form fill profile, etc. Once you check an action for which you wish to be reprompted, the setting will apply to every site, Secure Note, or Form Fill Profile stored in your Vault. If you only want to require a Master Password reprompt for a specific site or set of sites, use the 'Require Password Reprompt' option when editing a specific site in your Vault or via your icon's dropdown menu. LastPass is set to the 'Normal' security level by default, which only checks 'Prompt for Master Password' when switching or editing Identities.  Please note that it is recommended you protect your accounts by logging out of LastPass, as that is stronger than this setting.


Security Email: As an additional layer of security, you may wish to have an email address separate from the one you use on a regular basis to receive important LastPass security emails that require actions.  This email address would be used to receive your:




This email should therefore be held to much higher security standards than your usual email account.  By entering an email address in the Security Email field, your notifications for the above list will only be sent to your security email address rather than the email address tied to your LastPass account. Having a separate security email address is optional and may provide an additional solution for those requiring a high level of security.

When logging onto a computer for the first time using multifactor authentication, such as Grid or Yubikey, LastPass will give you the option of marking the computer as 'trusted':



Doing so adds the computer to the 'Trusted Computers' list and ensures that you will not be prompted to enter multifactor authentication the next time you log in. These steps must be completed on every device that you want to mark as trusted.

Emergency Access

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

Do you worry about your family, friends, partner, or spouse having access to important accounts should something happen to you? Do you want an easy way to give them the passwords and logins they'd need to manage accounts on your behalf? Prepare for the unexpected and ensure your loved ones don't get locked out of important accounts, like paying bills or the mortgage, and that they can manage your digital legacy.


With the Emergency Access feature, you can give trusted family and friends access to your LastPass account in the event of an emergency or crisis. Your designated Emergency Access contact(s) can request access to your account and securely receive the passwords and notes without knowing your Master Password. You decide how much time should pass before they're given access once they request it, and you can decline access if it's requested unnecessarily.


Emergency Access can also be used as an alternative account recovery feature. If you worry about ever forgetting your master password and want to ensure you have a backup way of recovering your vault, set another person as your Emergency Contact. When needed, they can access your data.


Please note: the person you share access with will need their own LastPass account as well.
[accordion-item title="Enable Emergency Access" id="h1"]
 

 


Your Emergency Access contact must have a LastPass account. If they do not, we will help you send them an invitation for them to join LastPass so that you can add them as a contact.

[accordion-item title="How is Emergency Access secure?" id="h4"]
 

 

LastPass uses public-private key cryptography with RSA-2048 to allow users to share the key to their vault with trusted parties, without ever passing that information in an unencrypted format to LastPass. When Emergency Access is activated, each user has a pair of cryptographic keys – a public key to allow others to encrypt data for the user, and a private key that allows the user to decrypt the data that others have encrypted for them.

The key used to encrypt and decrypt your vault data is encrypted with the Emergency Access contact’s public key, and can be decrypted only with their corresponding private key. When setting up Emergency Access, you are using the recipient's public key, encrypting your vault key with that public key, and then LastPass stores that RSA-2048 encrypted data until it's released after the waiting period you specify. Only the recipient can decrypt the data, so no one else can decrypt it without access to the private key of the recipient you're sharing it with, which is encrypted with their master password key. This process is completely automated, with no action required by the end user, and ensures that the data is inaccessible by LastPass or outside parties.

Browser Extension Preferences

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

LastPass is both an online service and an extension that runs locally in your browser to provide service, even if online access to LastPass is unavailable. You'll want to set up your local preferences in each browser you use with LastPass according to the level of security you feel is necessary for that location (e.g. you may want to have a longer idle timeout at home than work).


You are strongly encouraged to review your LastPass settings after creating your account. We recognize that different users have different requirements, so although the default values are chosen as a compromise between ease of use and security, we have made it as easy as possible for users to change their security options and other settings.


LastPass does not synchronize these settings because you may want to have different security profiles or notification preferences at different places (e.g. home versus work), so be sure to specify your settings for every browser you use with the LastPass plugin. You will also need to make these changes for every user who will be using LastPass (log in as each individual user to adjust the settings).


Preference options within the Control Panel tabs will vary from browser to browser; not all of the below-listed settings may be offered as options in your current browser(s).


[accordion-item title="Launching Preferences" id="h1"]

To specify your local browser settings, click the LastPass Icon 19x19_Gray in your browser to log in. When it turns red, click on the icon 19x19_Red again to see LastPass extension's drop-down menu. On the menu, click the Preferences link:

[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="General Settings" id="h2"]
Preferences - General
[tabbed_section]
[tab title="Security" id="general-security"]

The most crucial General settings control the way you handle going idle and being automatically logged off when you close your browser. Your selection should be an appropriate balance between security and convenience.


Automatically Logoff when all browsers are closed: Specify when LastPass should log out of your session upon closing the browser. This setting is disabled by default. If you would like LastPass to log off immediately after each session, check the box and put the value '0' for minutes; when you relaunch the browser, you will be asked to enter your Master Password. If you would like to extend the time between ending your browser session and logging out of LastPass, enter another value in the minutes field. If the specific amount of time passes before you re-open the browser, you will be prompted for your Master Password. If you wish for LastPass to stay logged in upon browser close, leave the box unchecked.


Automatically Logoff after idle: If you frequently minimize your browser or walk away from your computer, you may want LastPass to log off after being idle for a specific amount of time. For example, if more than one person shares a home computer, you may want LastPass to timeout after 10 minutes of inactivity (no keyboard or mouse movements) so that someone else sitting down to the computer will not have access to your Vault and account information. After the specified amount of time, the icon will turn gray, indicated that you are logged off. Click the icon to log in again. Leave this setting unchecked if you wish for LastPass to stay logged in between browser sessions. This setting is unchecked by default.


[/tab]
[tab title="General" id="general-general"]

Open New Pages in: This dropdown menu allows you to choose whether you want LastPass to open pages in new tabs, new windows, or within the tab you are using. For example, if you click on your LastPass Icon, click on Sites, and select a site, LastPass will launch the URL according to your specifications and proceed to autolog you in to the site. By default, LastPass will open new pages in tabs.


Highlight Input boxes: Enable field highlighting, so that when you navigate to a site that is stored in LastPass, the fields become outlined in red and populated with the LastPass logo when your credentials are autofilled.  LastPass enables this setting by default.


Automatically Fill Login Information: This default setting instructs LastPass to autopopulate any stored login fields (such as username and password) when you navigate to a stored URL.


[/tab]
[tab title="Appearance" id="general-appearance"]

Use Compact Toolbar: Compresses the LastPass toolbar into the small Icon on your browser menu. In Internet Explorer, you can switch between toolbar modes: Compact Toolbar, Command Bar, Full Toolbar.


Show Sites in Folders: Turn the Folder feature on or off with this setting. If you organize your stored sites into Folders, we recommend leaving this default setting enabled.


Show Sites in Sidebar: This setting is unchecked by default and is only available in Firefox. Rather than view your sites in the 'Sites' submenu after clicking on your Icon, enabling 'Show Sites in Sidebar' allows you to click on 'Sites' from your Icon menu and launch a sidebar listing out your LastPass sites. Once enabled in LastPass, enable it in Firefox by going to View > Sidebar > LastPass Sites.


Hide Context Menu Options: Disables the right-click LastPass menu options. This setting is disabled by default.


[/tab]
[tab title="Form Fill" id="general-form-fill"]

Default Form Fill Profile: To specify your default form fill profile Form_Fill, select a saved profile from the dropdown menu. No profile is selected by default, and is meant to be used in conjunction with the form fill hotkey.


Do not overwrite fields that are already filled: If you wish to manually enter data in a particular web form field, and do not want LastPass to overwrite the field with stored information, enable this setting (disabled by default).


Restore "General" Defaults: click on this button to restore the defaulted settings under General section.

[accordion-item title="Notifications" id="h3"]

Your Notifications settings can be found by clicking on the LastPass Icon 19x19_Red, selecting Preferences, and clicking the 'Notifications' tab on the left-hand menu:


Notification Settings

The Notifications options control when LastPass prompts you to take action as you browse to a stored URL, log in to a new site, or fill a web form. By selecting or unselecting certain notification options, you can change how often you are prompted with the dropdown toolbar. By default, all notification settings are checked to allow you maximum access to all LastPass features.


Notifications options will vary from browser to browser; not all of the below-listed notifications may be offered as options in your current browser(s).


Show Notifications: Globally enables the notification bar. We do not recommend shutting off the notification bar unless you want to manually complete all actions via your LastPass Icon. LastPass enables this option by default.


Offer to Generate Secure Passwords: When LastPass recognizes that you are registering for a new account that requires a password, this notification prompts you to use the Generate a Secure Password feature. LastPass enables this option by default.


Show Form Fill Notifications: LastPass automatically detects web forms, such as billing information, when checking out at an online shopping site. Enabling this notification ensures that LastPass will prompt you to fill the detected web form with one of your saved Form Fill profiles Form_Fill. If you have enabled the "Show certain notifications only after click" setting, you may need to click within one of the web form fields to be prompted with the form fill notification. LastPass enables this option by default.


Show Save Site Notifications: When enabled, LastPass will prompt you to save the login data for an unsaved site after you have logged in the first time. LastPass enables this option by default.


Show notifications below browser: When enabled, LastPass will show notifications at the bottom of your browser screen (by default, it shows on the top of your browser).


Show certain notifications only after click: When enabled, this setting restricts how often LastPass will prompt you for form fill and LastPass logins. For example, if you enable this setting, LastPass will not prompt to fill a web form until you have clicked within one of the web form fields. We have enabled this default setting to reduce the frequency with which LastPass prompts you with the notification bar. LastPass enables this option by default.


Show Fill Notification Bar:  Enables the 2.0 style notification bar that offers to AutoLogin or AutoFill your website credentials for you.


Show Save Site Notification Bar: Enables the notification toolbar that offers to save a  new site entry when LastPass detects that a new password has been entered for a site.


Show Change Password Notification Bar: Enables the dropdown toolbar when LastPass detects a password that is different from the password stored for that site entry in your Vault. LastPass enables this option by default.


Click Icons in Fields: Enables the 3.0 style field icons that allow you to seamlessly AutoFill your website credentials.


Show Matching Sites Count In Toolbar (currently available on Chrome):  Shows the number of matching site entries stored in your Vault for the current page your browser is on in the bottom of the LastPass icon located in your browser toolbar LastPass extension - number of matching sites.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Hot Keys" id="h4"]

HotKeys allow you to create keyboard shortcuts for a number of LastPass features. To edit your hotkeys, click on your LastPass Icon 19x19_Red when you are logged in to see a drop-down menu, select Preferences, and click on HotKeys on the left-hand menu:


Hotkeys settings

Because hotkeys vary among operating systems and browsers, LastPass will select the default hotkeys for the particular plugin you are using. It is important to verify that a change in one of your LastPass hotkeys will not interfere with other default hotkeys for your computer.


You can currently customize the following hotkeys:


Generate Secure Password: If you are creating a new account, this hotkey allows you to bring up the Generate a Password dialog box and copy the autogenerated password. The Generate Secure Password hotkey is Alt+G by default.


Recheck Page: If the page has changed since it was loaded and LastPass hasn't filled in the action, this hotkey allows you to quickly force LastPass to check the page again. Recheck Page can also be accessed from the Tools menu in your LastPass icon. The Recheck Page hotkey is Alt+I by default.


Site Search: Brings up the dialog box showing all of your stored sites with a search bar that allows you to easily sort through your sites. You do not need to be in your LastPass Vault to open the Site Search dialog using the hotkey. The Site Search hotkey is Alt+W by default.


Fill In Next Login (When Multiple): If you have multiple logins stored for the same domain or URL, LastPass will autofill with one of your entries but will prompt for you to fill with one of your other saved sets of login data. You can easily move to the next autofill options by using this hotkey (Alt+Page Up by default).


Fill In Previous Login (When Multiple): If you have multiple logins stored for the same domain or URL, LastPass will autofill with one of your entries but will prompt for you to fill with one of your other saved sets of login data. You can easily move to the next autofill options by using this hotkey (Alt+Page Down by default).


Submit Form: Automatically submits a login form or web form. The Submit Form hotkey is Alt+J by default.


Open My LastPass Vault: Need quick access to your local Vault? This hotkey opens your local Vault in a new tab or window, according to your General settings. The Open Vault hotkey is Ctrl+Alt+H by default.


Save All Entered Data: The Save All Entered Data allows you to automatically capture all login data for the page. LastPass shows you the captured data in a dialog box, where you can edit the settings for the site before clicking save. There is no default Save All Entered Data hotkey.


Logoff: Allows you to immediately end your LastPass session, and will autolog you out of any open Vault pages as well as plugins favicon that are sharing browser states. There is no default logoff hotkey.


Fill In Default Form Fill Profile: Once you have set your default Form_Fill, this hotkey allows you to autofill a web form with a few keystrokes. There is no default Form Fill Profile hotkey.

We select the default settings for your Advanced options that we feel will optimize your browsing experience with LastPass. However, you may wish to change these settings according to your security needs or personal preferences.


Advanced preference options will vary from browser to browser; not all of the below-listed preferences may be offered as options in your current browser(s).


To access your Advanced preferences, click on LastPass extension icon 19x19_Red when you are logged in to see a drop-down menu, select Preferences, and click on the Advanced tab in the left-hand menu:


Advanced Settings

Automatically login to sites if time since last login > (seconds): LastPass is set to automatically log you back in to a site after 25 seconds if you have been logged off.


Warn before filling insecure forms: If you are concerned about security when filling out a web form, you can enable LastPass to notify you of a possibly insecure form; this setting is disabled by default.  This setting determines what an insecure form is by distinguishing between GET and POST submission forms.


Respect AutoComplete=off: Allow websites to disable the Autofill feature. This option is disabled by default.


Poll Server for account changes: By default, LastPass will poll the server every 15 minutes to check for changes to your LastPass account.


Clear Clipboard after use: LastPass is set to clear your clipboard after a default amount of time. If you've been copy/pasting  your secure data into login fields or web forms, this ensures that your data cannot be compromised by being left on the clipboard. You must have the binary component installed for this option.


Recently Used Site List: LastPass automatically shows ten of your most recently visited LastPass-stored sites under the 'Recently Used' submenu. However, this preference option allows you to customize the number of recently used sites that appear in your 'Recently Used' submenu. If you set the value to zero, the 'Recently Used' submenu will disappear from your Icon menu.


Search within secure notes: By default, LastPass gives you the ability to search within your Secure Notes.


Open Login dialog when start browser: LastPass does not enable this feature by default. By enabling this option, you will be automatically prompted to log in to LastPass upon opening your browser. We recommend this setting if you use LastPass every time you open your browser and prefer not to have to click the icon to log in.


Save a disabled One Time Password locally for Account Recovery: By default, LastPass stores a One Time Password to aid you in the Account Recovery process, should you forget your Master Password.


It is important to note that if an attacker is able to obtain your locally stored OTP (and decrypt it while on your pc) and gain access to your email account, they can compromise your data if this option is turned on. We feel this threat is low enough that we recommend the average user not to disable this setting.


Share login state between other browsers: If you frequently use more than one browser, you can set LastPass to share login states between all browsers with the plugin installed on your operating system. For example, if you use both Firefox and Chrome with the shared login state enabled, you can log in to one browser and automatically be logged in to the other. When you are done with your browsing session, logging out of one will also log you out of the other. The shared login state is enabled by default to make your browsing experience faster and easier. The binary component must be installed to make this option available.


Enable New Login Screen:  Enables the new login screen in Chrome that pops out directly from the LastPass icon in the browser toolbar.  De-selecting this option reverts to the previous login process, where selecting Login from the icon launched a full tab in Chrome and allows you to login there.


Clear Filled Fields on Logoff:  Enabling this preference will automatically clear any fields that have been filled by LastPass on the current page your browser is on when you log off LastPass.


Show Matching Sites in top Level Menu:  Selecting this option will show matching sites for the current page your browser is on in the top level of the dropdown menu from the LastPass browser toolbar icon.  This is where matching sites previously used to appear in 2.0 versions of LastPass.  In LastPass 3.0 versions, matching sites show under the "Show Matching Sites" option on the top level of the dropdown menu, and are only one click away.


Language: Allows you to change the Default language setting for the browser plugin. This change will only apply to the plugin whose settings you are editing, so you will need to modify the selection on all LastPass browser extensions that you use in addition to the Online Vault language setting.

      • Savvy end users could potentially access the password if they capture it using advanced techniques, but LastPass will never be able to access this data because it has been encrypted using their public key.

      • It is also possible to obtain shared passwords using another password manager.

      • LastPass recommends that you use a generated password specific to the site that you're sharing and not share any passwords that you're uncomfortable with the recipient obtaining.

      General - Preferences

      To access the General settings tab, go to your LastPass Icon and launch Preferences:


      pref

      The Control Panel dialog will open to automatically show your General settings (options will vary based on browser):


      pref2

      General preference options will vary from browser to browser; not all of the below-listed preferences may be offered as options in your current browser(s).



      Security


      Automatically Logoff when all browsers are closed: Specify when LastPass should log out of your session upon closing the browser. This setting is disabled by default. If you would like LastPass to log off immediately after each session, check the box and put the value '0' for minutes; when you relaunch the browser, you will be asked to enter your Master Password. If you would like to extend the time between ending your browser session and logging out of LastPass, enter another value in the minutes field. If the specific amount of time passes before you re-open the browser, you will be prompted for your Master Password. If you wish for LastPass to stay logged in upon browser close, leave the box unchecked.


      Automatically Logoff after idle: If you frequently minimize your browser or walk away from your computer, you may want LastPass to log off after being idle for a specific amount of time. For example, if more than one person shares a home computer, you may want LastPass to timeout after 10 minutes of inactivity (no keyboard or mouse movements) so that someone else sitting down to the computer will not have access to your Vault and account information. After the specified amount of time, the icon will turn gray, indicated that you are logged off. Click the icon to log in again. Leave this setting unchecked if you wish for LastPass to stay logged in between browser sessions. This setting is unchecked by default.



      General


      Open New Pages in: This dropdown menu allows you to choose whether you want LastPass to open pages in new tabs, new windows, or within the tab you are using. For example, if you click on your LastPass Icon, click on Sites, and select a site, LastPass will launch the URL according to your specifications and proceed to autolog you in to the site. By default, LastPass will open new pages in tabs.


      Highlight Input boxes: Enable field highlighting, so that when you navigate to a site that is stored in LastPass, the fields become outlined in red and populated with the LastPass logo when your credentials are autofilled.  LastPass enables this setting by default.


      Automatically Fill Login Information: This default setting instructs LastPass to autopopulate any stored login fields (such as username and password) when you navigate to a stored URL.



      Appearance


      Use Compact Toolbar: Compresses the LastPass toolbar into the small Icon on your browser menu. In Internet Explorer, you can switch between toolbar modes: Compact Toolbar, Command Bar, Full Toolbar.


      Show Sites in Folders: Turn the Folder feature on or off with this setting. If you organize your stored sites into Folders, we recommend leaving this default setting enabled.


      Show Sites in Sidebar: This setting is unchecked by default and is only available in Firefox. Rather than view your sites in the 'Sites' submenu after clicking on your Icon, enabling 'Show Sites in Sidebar' allows you to click on 'Sites' from your Icon menu and launch a sidebar listing out your LastPass sites:



      Hide Context Menu Options: Disables the right-click LastPass menu options. This setting is disabled by default.



      Form Fill


      Default Form Fill Profile: To specify your default form fill profile, select a saved profile from the dropdown menu. No profile is selected by default, and is meant to be used in conjunction with the form fill hotkey.


      Do not overwrite fields that are already filled: If you wish to manually enter data in a particular web form field, and do not want LastPass to overwrite the field with stored information, enable this setting (disabled by default).

      Secure Notes & Attachments

      [accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

      LastPass Secure Notes Secure_Note allow you to store private information safely and securely. Think of it as a password-protected, digital notepad that you can access from anywhere, at anytime. Some examples of data that you might save in a Secure Note include bank account numbers, Social Security numbers, passport numbers, combinations to safes, etc.


      Since all sensitive data is encrypted locally on your computer with the key that only you know before it is sent to LastPass, you can store your most sensitive data with the knowledge that is it is completely safe. Just like all of your LastPass data, your Secure Notes will be available from any location with your LastPass Vault.

      [accordion-item title="Attachments to Secure Notes" id="h6"]
       

      LastPass users can add documents, PDF files, and images as attachments to Secure Notes secure_note. 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 (clicking on the edit icon Edit), and locating the file on the device. Your attachments are then synced to any location where you log in to your account:


      Secure Note Add Attachment

      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.


      Attachments are downloaded on demand so it takes sometime to download from LastPass server. If you see an error opening attachment when trying to open it the first time, close the error message popup and leave the Edit Window open for a few minutes and then retry.  The max waiting time is 5 minutes but it should be less than 1 minute if your internet connection is strong and stable.


      Please note: you cannot save an attachment to your machine/device unless you could open it first.



      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.

      Generating Secure Passwords

      [accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
       

      LastPass gives you tools to generate secure, non-guessable passwords, helping you to have the safest web experience possible. You can also use LastPass to replace old passwords with unique, randomly generated ones.


      [accordion-item title="Generating a Password" id="h0"]

      When you create an account on a website and wish to use LastPass Password Generator to generate a password, click LastPass Password Generator icon within the New Password field on the sign up page to see a drop-down menu:

      [accordion-item title="Changing an Old Password to a Generated One" id="h1"]
      [tabbed_section]
      [tab title="Changing Passwords"]

      If you stored login details that you created before you began using LastPass, we recommend that you run the LastPass Security Challenge to identify potentially weak passwords. Once identified, you may want to change your old password to ones randomly generated by LastPass.


      You may also like to periodically update your passwords; LastPass tries to make this process as simple as possible for sites that you have stored in your Vault.



      Replacing Your Old Password


      We'll use a demo Facebook account to show how to update a stored site with a new, generated password from LastPass.




      1. To begin, log in to the target site and access the account settings or preferences page where you can change your password.

      2. When you launch the change password page, you will usually be asked to enter your old password, with a new password entered twice.  Click on the field icon in the current password field, and select the login. LastPass will fill in the current password for the login you selected:
        Password changing page on a website

      3. After autofilling the current password, you can then click the 'Generate' field icon in the 'New Password' field to begin to create a random, unique password:
        Change a password on a website

      4. Select the options you wish, and if you accept the password that has been generated, click Use Password to autofill both the 'New password' and the 'Confirm Password' fields on the website. This will also create a backup copy of the generated password in your Vault called 'Generated password for...'.

      5. You will then be asked to confirm if this is a password change or a new entry. Choose Yes, Use for this Site to overwrite your existing password with the new one. Choose No, Save as New Entry to save this as a new entry in your Vault and not continue with the password change.
        pwchg4

      6. Now click 'Save' to submit the changes to the website. After clicking Save, LastPass will prompt you to either Confirm or Save New Site

      7. By clicking on Confirm, you will tell LastPass to swap the old password for the entry with the new, generated password. Save New Site creates an entirely new entry for the site with your previous username and new, generated password.

      8. The next time you log in to your site, LastPass will autofill with the new, generated password!


      If LastPass does not recognize the change in password when you submit it, do the following:




      1. Sign out of the site

      2. Go to the login page for the site

      3. Use LastPass to enter your username

      4. Copy/paste the password from the 'Generated Password' entry that was stored when you accepted the new password

      5. Click login

      6. You will then be prompted by LastPass to accept the changes to the site's entry, and now the new password will be stored with the entry in your Vault.

Just like all other data on your account, the changed password is encrypted locally before syncing, never allowing LastPass to access your data.



      Automatically Changing Passwords


      To automatically change a password with Auto-Password Change, go the LastPass Vault and find a supported site. Hover your mouse pointer over the entry and click the wrench icon to open the edit window. In the Edit window, click the 'Change Password Automatically' button as seen below.


      Auto Change Password Option on Edit Window

      By clicking this button, LastPass will begin to automatically log you into the site in the background (in another tab) and change your password. Make sure to NOT close out of this tab. As the Auto-Password Change changes your password, you will see a progress bar.


      Auto Change Password In Progress

      Once completed, you will receive a notice that the password has been successfully changed on the both the site and in LastPass!

      If LastPass does not recognize the change in password when you submit it, do the following:

      • Sign out of the site

      • Go to the login page for the site

      • Use LastPass to enter your username

      • Copy/paste the password from the 'Generated Password' entry that was stored when you accepted the new password

      • Click login


      You will then be prompted by LastPass to accept the changes to the site's entry, and now the new password will be stored with the entry in your Vault.

      To automatically change a password with Auto-Password Change, go the LastPass Vault and find a supported site. Click the edit icon edit to edit the site. In the Edit dialog, click the 'Change Password Automatically' button as seen below.

      screenshotBy clicking this button, LastPass will begin to automatically log you into the site in the background (in another tab) and change your password. Make sure to NOT close out of this tab. As the Auto-Password Change changes your password, you will see a progress bar.

      Once completed, you will receive a notice that the password has been successfully changed on the both the site and in LastPass!

      Using LastPass to Fill Forms

      [accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

      Using LastPass to store the data you typically have to type into web forms is both easy and secure with Form Fill Profiles Form_Fill. Form Fill Profiles are encrypted locally on your computer with the key that only you know before it is sent to LastPass, so you can securely store your credit card, Social Security Number, phone number, and other sensitive data you wish to easily access. This reduces shopping checkouts, vacation reservations, shipping, and site registrations to just a few easy clicks.


      [accordion-item title="Adding a Form Fill Profile" id="h1"]

      [tabbed_section]
      [tab title="Add a Form Fill Profile"]

      LastPass recommends you create different profiles for each Name, Location, and Credit Card. To do this, click on the LastPass Icon favicon and choose 'Form Fill' Form_Fill icon and then 'Add Profile' or 'Add Credit Card':


      Form Fill option on dropdown menu
      Form Fills on dropdown menu

      From the same expanded menu, right click on any form fill profile or click the wrench icon to see Edit and Fill options.


      Form Fill options on dropdown menu

      When you select Edit option, LastPass will then launch a Form Fill edit dialog box, where you can fill in all relevant fields:


      Form Fill Profile Edit Window

       

      When you see a Form Fill field icon Form_Fill


      formicon

      You can click on this icon Form_Fill to bring up the Form Fills Profile menu:

      [/accordion-item]
      [accordion-item title="Default Form Fill Profile"]
       

      To set your default fill form profile, click on your LastPass browser Icon favicon and select 'Preferences' to launch your LastPass Control Panel. In the last section on the General tab, labeled 'Form Fill', you can select a default profile from the dropdown menu and select 'Save':


      Select a default form fill profile

      The Default Form Fill profile is useful when you are using the Form Fill hotkey for web forms.


      [/accordion-item]
      [accordion-item title="Selective Form Fill" id="h2"]
       

      By default, all form fields on the page are filled. However, LastPass also supports selective form filling.


      To selectively fill forms, use your mouse to highlight only the form fields you would like to fill:



      Then, use form fill Form_Fill as you normally would, and only the fields you selected will be filled in:



      [/accordion-item]
      [accordion-item title="Using Custom Fields" id="h3"]
       

      LastPass Form Fill provides many built-in fields. However, you may find yourself wanting to fill other fields as well. You can do so using Custom Fields.


      When editing a Form Fill profile by clicking on the edit icon edit, click on the Custom Fields tab:


      Form Fill Edit Window Custom Fields

      Each row corresponds to a single Custom Field. Every Custom Field must have its Text and Value boxes filled in.


      Text to find contains the descriptive text next to the field you wish to fill on a website. In case there is no text on the website, it can also match the field's name or ID. Matches are case-insensitive, and partial matches are allowed. For example, 'MSN' would match both 'MSN' and 'msn id'.


      Value to fill contains the value you wish to fill into the field. It can be multi-line, but keep in mind that multiple lines can only be filled into a multi-line text box on a website, not a single-line text box.

      Protecting Your Account with Multifactor Authentication

      [accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

      Multifactor authentication refers to a device that can be enabled for use with your LastPass account, and requires a second step before you can gain access to your account. Multifactor authentication devices help protect your account from keyloggers and other threats – even if your Master Password were captured, someone would be unable to gain access to your account without this second form of authentication.


      To enable Multifactor Authentication, go to the LastPass Vault > click Account Settings on the left menu > Multifactor Options.  Detailed instructions for each Multifactor Option is provided below.

      Time-based One-Time Password Authentication


      In addition to the above multifactor authentication options, LastPass also works with Time-based One-Time Password Authentication (TOTP) such as Authy and Microsoft Authenticator. Click here to see the full list of options:

        Before you get started to enable the multifactor authentication (MFA), be sure you're running the latest updates for the LastPass browser extensions and mobile apps. You can always find the latest updates here: https://lastpass.com/download. Next, follow the steps below to enable it in LastPass Account Settings:

        1. Download the MFA app of your choice from the app store on your mobile device

        2. Follow the instructions on the app's welcome screen to set up the app on your device if needed. The example is Authy. If you use Microsoft Authenticator app, you can skip the steps 3 to 6 and go to LastPass Account Settings in step 7.

        3. Authy will then send you a verification email to either your email or via SMS to your phone.

        4. Tap the option to add a new account.

        5. Create a password for Authy backup codes (be sure to store this password in LastPass!).

        6. Login to your LastPass account on a desktop PC or laptop browser.

        7. Open the LastPass Icon favicon > My LastPass Vault > Account Settings on the left menu.

        8. Click the "Multifactor Options" tab.

        9. Scroll to the "Google Authenticator" option.

        10. Click "edit" for the Google Authenticator option.

        11. Next to the Barcode field, click "view".

        12. Enter your master password when being prompted

        13. In the MFA app on your phone, tap the Scan QR Code button.

        14. Hold your phone up to the computer to scan the Google Authenticator barcode.

        15. Click "done" in the MFA app on your phone. Now your MFA token should appear and re-generate every 30 seconds.

        16. On your desktop browser, click Enable.

        17. Enter the MFA code on your mobile device to pair the MFA app with your LastPass account when being prompted

        18. Click Update and enter your master password again to complete the process

        19. The next time you login to LastPass you will be prompted to enter your authentication code. Just open the MFA app, and enter the code when prompted.


        Smart Card


        LastPass has experimental support for smart card readers as a Premium feature.  Currently, only computers running Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux, SafeSign middleware, and Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome support this feature.  Safari and Opera can be supported by installing an additional binary component.


        OpenSC is also supported as an alternative to SafeSign (currently only on Windows and Linux).  Please note that since some browsers still run in 32-bit mode even on 64-bit versions of Windows, you may need to install both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of OpenSC.



        • For Windows, please ensure aetpkss1.dll or opensc-pkcs11.dll is present on your system (typically in C:\Windows\System32).

        • For Mac OS X, please ensure libaetpkss.dylib is present on your system (typically in /usr/local/lib).

        • For Linux, please ensure libaetpkss.so or opensc-pkcs11.so is present on your system (typically in /usr/lib).


        Make sure a smart card is inserted into your card reader before attempting to enable smart card authentication.  Also, make sure an RSA key is present on your smart card.  This RSA key must be capable of encryption and decryption so that LastPass can verify your card's security.


        To enable smart card authentication:




        1. Open a supported browser with the latest LastPass extension installed.

        2. Log in to LastPass as a Premium user.

        3. Open the LastPass Icon favicon > My LastPass Vault > Account Settings on the left menu.

        4. Click the "Multifactor Options" tab.

        5. Choose the Fingerprint/Card Reader Authentication option and click the pencil icon to open the edit window.

        6. Enable Card Reader.

        7. Enter your LastPass master password, then follow the rest of the prompts on the screen.

        8. Click Update.


        [/accordion-item]
        [accordion-item title="Lost Multifactor" id="h2"]
         

         

        Whenever you login with Multifactor Authentication enabled, you are prompted to use your authentication code to login.  Underneath the entry field for your code , there is a link entitled:


        "If you lost your device, click here to disable authentication."


        or


        "I've lost my device."


        Clicking this link will send an e-mail to your LastPass account e-mail address (or security e-mail address if you have set one), that will contain a link that will temporarily disable your Authenticator. If you are unable to access your e-mail for some reason, and have lost your Authenticator device, please do the following:


      1. Check your email settings. Go to your My Account page (LastPass Icon 19x19_Red > More Options > Advanced > My Account) > Email Notifications > Change Settings. Make sure the appropriate email types are enabled.

      2. The email  may have blocked by an email filter or sent was sent to Spam. To ensure that this does not occur, please add support@lastpass.com as a contact and to your email filter's whitelist. Then prompt LastPass to send you another email.


      If you have a security email set, the email you are looking for may be there. Note that your security email is different then the email you use to login to LastPass with.
      [/accordion-item]
      [accordion-item title="Trust your Device" id="h3"]


       

       

      If you do not want to be prompted for Multifactor on devices that you trust, you can enable your device as "Trusted". When logging onto a computer using multifactor authentication, LastPass will give you the option of marking the computer as a trusted computer by enabling Trust this computer:


      MFA prompt


      Note: You see the trusting option when using LastPass plugin on desktop browsers, LastPass mobile app, and LastPass native app on Windows and OS X. You will not see this option when logging via lastpass.com.


      You can disable a trusted computer at any time by going to the LastPass Vault > click on Account Settings on the left menu > Trusted Devices tab and de-selecting the check box under Enabled column next to the entry or delete the entry entirely by clicking the x sign. If you want to rename the trusted devices, click on the pencil edit icon and type the new name into the field.  Then hit Enter to save the change.

      When multifactor authentication is enabled, you can choose whether to allow LastPass to store an encrypted vault locally so you can log in without an internet connection or not. If you enable offline access, you will be able to login without using Multifactor (with the exception of Yubikey) in case of a connectivity issue.


      With some internet configurations (typically wireless connections and waking from sleep), LastPass may log in offline first before establishing connectivity to your online vault and prompting for your authenticator code.  This may cause LastPass to AutoFill any login credentials you have saved in LastPass for the current page you are on.   If you wish to disable offline access, you may do so in your account settings.

[accordion-item title="Fingerprint Reader Not Detected?" id="h2"]
 

 

If LastPass does not detect your reader in Account Settings, you should go to your computer's Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Biometric Devices.  If it doesn't list your fingerprint reader, you should contact your laptop manufacturer or look on their support website for Windows Biometric Framework compatible drivers.

 
[tabbed_section]
[tab title="UPEK Fingerprint Readers"]

For UPEK fingerprint readers, make sure you have the latest drivers and and support for Windows Biometric Framework. For PC based UPEK readers: Please ensure you have Windows Biometric Framework for UPEK installed.


**PLEASE NOTE**: UPEK merged with Authentec, Inc., which was acquired by Apple in 2012. There currently is no direct download site for drivers and software for these readers, please look to your computer manufacturer's website for driver downloads.


For Mac-based UPEK readers: You will need the latest version of TrueSuite for MAC, and for Safari, Firefox, or Chrome. Please ensure VtApi.framework is present on your system (typically in /Library/Frameworks). For Validity Fingerprint readers, download WBF support at this page**.


[/tab]
[tab title="Validity's WBF Drivers"]

Unfortunately, the driver used for HP ProtectTools can not be combined with this WBF driver for LastPass integration. This is by design as the native drivers are secure drivers and “take ownership” of the sensor, meaning no other application can use it.  To keep HP ProtectTools and use the fingerprint features for Preboot Authentication, Full Volume Encryption, Windows logins and website logins, then they must use the native Validity drivers ONLY. If you install the WBF drivers it will interfere with the operation of the fingerprint feature in HP ProtectTools.


If that happens, you will need to uninstall the WBF package, and then Repair or uninstall and re-install the Validity native drivers, called “Validity Fingerprint Sensor Drivers” in Programs and Features. Validity suggests that if a customer wants both HP ProtectTools and LastPass, is by installing the WBF drivers and FMA from above and then installing  Lastpass in a Virtual Machine.


It can be done the other way around, however, some of the high-security features HP ProtectTools has will not work 100% from a Virtual Machine, such as Device Access Manager, Full Volume Encryption, and Preboot Authentication. Validity hasn’t verified operation of HP ProtectTools and the native Validity drivers in a Virtual Machine.

RSA SecurID

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
rsa_securid
 

LastPass Enterprise supports RSA SecurID as a 2nd factor of authentication for user access to their LastPass Enterprise account. A second factor of authentication can protect your LastPass vault against replay-attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks, and a host of other threat vectors.


Once enabled, the user will be prompted first for his/her LastPass Master Username and Password, and then for his/her RSA SecurID passcode. As with all of our multi-factor options, users will have the option to ‘trust’ certain devices to eliminate the 2nd factor prompt – striking the perfect balance between security and convenience. If you prefer to disable the Trust option, this can be done using the configurable LastPass Security Policies.


RSA-Shot-1


[accordion-item title="Agent Host Configuration" id="h1"]
 

 

To facilitate communication between LastPass Enterprise and the RSA Authentication Manager / RSA SecurID Appliance, an agent host record must be added to the RSA Authentication Manager database. The agent host record identifies LastPass Enterprise and contains information about communication and encryption.  Set the Agent Type to “Standard Agent” when adding the authentication agent.


Since LastPass will be communicating with RSA Authentication Manager via RADIUS, a RADIUS client that corresponds to the agent host record must be created in the RSA Authentication Manager, RADIUS clients are managed using the RSA Security Console.


The following information is required to create a RADIUS client:




Note: The RADIUS client’s hostname must resolve to the IP address specified.


LastPass Enterprise employs a distributed architecture which encompasses many similarly configured servers.  As a result of this architecture, RSA Authentication Manager administrators will need to configure agent host records and/or RADIUS clients for each LastPass Enterprise server.  There are a few different methods for achieving this with varying amounts of administrative effort.  These options are:




Note: Refer to RSA Authentication Manager Administrators Guide for information on configuring shared RADIUS clients.

To access these policies, click on the LastPass Plug-in, select ‘Admin Console’ - > Set-Up -> Policies. Here are some policies that you might consider implementing relative to RSA SecurID:


Require use of RSA SecurID


Require use of RSA SecurID as a second factor of authentication when logging into LastPass. Click the 'enabled' box to enable this policy. RSA SecurID must be configured by the user.


Require use of any multifactor option


Require use of any multifactor option as a second factor of authentication when logging into LastPass. Click the 'enabled' box to enable this policy. YubiKey, LastPass Sesame, Google Authenticator, Toopher, Duo Security, Transakt, Salesforce#, and RSA SecurID are the currently available options.


Restrict Multifactor Trust


Restrict computers that can be trusted by IP address (learn more about 'trusted computers' here: https://helpdesk.lastpass.com/account-settings/trusted-computers/. You can enable this policy to allow users to skip second factor authentication from trusted locations (such as the office) but still require it from remote locations.


Any of the aforementioned policies can be enabled across all users in the account, or based on some sub-set thereof.

LastPass Premium members can use an ordinary USB thumb drive as a second form of authentication when logging into their LastPass account. Having a physical second form of authentication will help further ensure that your account will remain safe because both your Master Password and your USB thumb drive are required to log in. Sesame is a cross-platform application that is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.



Watch the Tutorial for Using Sesame



[accordion-item title="Enabling Sesame" id="h1"]
 

 
  1. Download Sesame from the LastPass downloads page, click on your operating system and select the version of Sesame specific to your system. You can then move the file (or download directly) onto your USB device.

  2. Run Sesame and you will see the empty Sesame dialog:


  3. On your first run, you will be prompted to activate the software by Adding your LastPass login to the user list.

  4. Enter your username and Master Password to login

  5. A prompt will appear saying that an e-mail was sent asking you to confirm the registry of Sesame.

  6. Check your email and click the link. By default, the email link will expire after 10 minutes to protect your security. If you click on the link and it says 'Link Expired', please re-send yourself the activation link and try again.

  7. After seeing the success page when clicking the link, go back to Sesame and click "OK".

  8. Enable or disable offline mode and mobile access in the next prompt:



Note for Linux users:The USB device is mounted noexec, which prevents running executables from the drive. To fix, remount the device with the exec flag, for example by "sudo mount -o remount,exec <device> <mountpoint>".



Once activated, Sesame will create secure One Time Passwords (OTP) that are subsequently required to login. You have the choice to copy the OTP to the clipboard or launch the browser and pass the value automatically.

[accordion-item title="Login with Transakt" id="h2"]

The next time that you log in to LastPass, you will be prompted for Transakt as shown in the image below:

[accordion-item title="Logging in Offline" id="h3"]

When multifactor authentication is enabled, you can choose whether to allow LastPass to store an encrypted vault locally so you can log in without an internet connection or not. If you enable offline access, you will be able to login without using Multifactor (with the exception of Yubikey) in case of a connectivity issue.


With some internet configurations (typically wireless connections and waking from sleep), LastPass may log in offline first before establishing connectivity to your online vault and prompting for your authenticator code.  This may cause LastPass to AutoFill any login credentials you have saved in LastPass for the current page you are on.   If you wish to disable offline access, you may do so in your account settings.

YubiKey Authentication

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
yubikey
 

YubiKey is a key-sized device that you can plug into your computer's USB slot to provide another layer of security when accessing your LastPass Account. YubiKeys are a secure, easy to use, two-factor authentication device that are immune from replay-attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks, and a host of other threat vectors.
Yubikey Finger Touch


Yubikey is a Premium feature, and the device must be purchased through Yubico.com for $25.


Limitations and Compatibility


Up to 5 YubiKeys can be associated with one LastPass account.


Yubikey Standard & VIP: works with all major browsers on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers with a USB port.


Update: LastPass add-on on mobile Firefox on Android now supports Yubikey authentication with a USB port (similar to how it works on desktop).


Yubikey Neo: works with all major browsers on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers with a USB port as well as Android devices that are NFC enabled.


 

See how the Yubikey works in the video below:



[accordion-item title="Enabling YubiKey with LastPass" id="h1"]
 


    1. Once you have purchased and received your YubiKey, you can enable the device and manage your preferences by launching your Account Settings > Multifactor Options > YubiKey:



Yubikey Option In Account Settings

  1. To add a new YubiKey to your LastPass account, enter the device in your USB port, click in the first empty YubiKey field, and lightly press your YubiKey button that has the wifi icon or the "Y" in the middle.Enable Yubikey

  2. After the field is filled, you can specify your YubiKey preferences:

    • YubiKey Authentication: Enable or disable your YubiKey multifactor authentication. When enabled, you will be prompted to enter the YubiKey data the next time you login to LastPass.

    • Permit Mobile Device Access: Controls whether mobile devices that do not possess USB ports, such as a smartphone, will be allowed to bypass YubiKey multifactor authentication when enabled.


      • Allow: allows users to bypass Yubikey authentication steps on all mobile devices.

        Allow Except Android/Windows Phone: this setting is helpful for users who use LastPass mobile app on multiple operating systems (iOS and Android, for example). It will allow users to bypass Yubikey authentication on iOS devices and prompt for Yubikey on Android.

        Disallow: Android users may use this settings to get prompted for Yubikey to log into their accounts using LastPass Android app AND LastPass add-on on mobile Firefox.

    • Permit Offline Access: Controls whether access to your vault will be allowed when you are not connected to the Internet. Allowing offline access to your vault is slightly less secure since YubiKey OTPs can not be validated, and only the static portion of the key is validated.



  3. Toggle "Enabled" to Yes.

  4. Click Update


To disassociate a YubiKey device with your LastPass account, simply clear the entire input field of all characters and click 'Update'.
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Logging In with YubiKey" id="h2"]


 

Now that you have enabled your YubiKey device, the next time you login to your LastPass account, you will be prompted to enter your YubiKey code. Simply click your LastPass Icon to login as normal, enter your email and Master Password, then submit. However, you will now be asked by LastPass to press your YubiKey device to enter the code:


Yubikey prompt dialogue

*Note: The Yubikey's static portion is used to doubly encrypt your local vault file. This means that while in offline mode, you will only be able to log in with the Yubikey that was used to encypt the current vault file.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Using a VIP YubiKey with LastPass" id="h3"]

The VIP enabled YubiKey (http://yubico.com/vip) has two configuration slots. When the VIP enabled YubiKey is shipped, it's first configuration slot is factory programmed for Symantec VIP credentials and the second configuration slot programmed with a standard Yubico OTP is dormant in the second identity slot and can be activated using the YubiKey Personalization Tool. The two configuration slots of the YubiKey work independently and each can be independently reconfigured into OTP or static password mode.


If you touch and hold the YubiKey button between 1-3 seconds before releasing, the first configuration slot will emit the password (based on slot 1 configuration). And if you touch and hold the YubiKey button about 4-5 seconds before releasing, the second configuration slot will emit the password (based on slot 2 configuration). In case if you happen to touch and hold it longer for more than 5 seconds, the touch button indicator will flash rapidly without emitting any password.


As the second configuration slot of the YubiKey is left blank, you can program it to the YubiKey OTP mode, upload the AES Key to the online validation server and configure it to work with LastPass.


To program the second slot to work with the online Yubico OTP validation server, please follow the steps below:




  1. First, download and install the latest Cross Platform Personalization Tool for Windows from the Yubico Website at: http://www.yubico.com/products/services-software/personalizationtools/use/ under the section "Cross platform personalization tools". There are a number of  different installers for various operating systems – pick the installer for your operating system.

  2. Once the Cross-Platform Personalization tool has been installed, insert your VIP YubiKey in a USB port on your computer and launch the YubiKey Personalization Tool.

  3. In the Cross-Platform Personalization Menu, open the "Settings" menu by clicking on the link “Update Settings” on the main page or the “Settings” option from the menu at the top.

  4. In the Settings menu, locate the Update Settings button in the lower right corner and click on it.

  5. The Update YubiKey Settings menu should be displayed. If this is not the case, confirm you

    have a VIP YubiKey with a firmware version of 2.3.0 or above.



  6. Locate the section labelled Configuration Slot and select Configuration Slot 2

  7. Locate the checkbox labelled Dormant and ensure the box is not checked


  8. Locate the Configuration Protection section, and open the menu labelled “YubiKey(s)


    unprotected – Keep it that way”. From this menu, select the option “YubiKey(s) protected –


    Keep it that way”.



  9. This will activate the “Current Access Code” field in the Configuration Protection section. Enter

    your VIP YubiKey’s current access code, which will be five 0s followed by the YubiKey’s serial


    number in Decimal format, as reported by the Personalization tool.


    For example:


    If your Serial Number is “1234567”, then your Current Access Code will be “00 00 01 23 45 67”



  10. Press the Button labelled “Update” to activate your VIP YubiKey’s second slot with the Yubico OTP configuration.


Yubico also has a video that describes the steps required for uploading the AES Key. For more information, please visit http://www.yubico.com/aes-key-upload
[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Using the YubiKey NEO" id="h4"]


 

After you've registered the YubiKey with your LastPass account, ensure that mobile access is "disallowed" in your LastPass Icon > My LastPass Vault > Account Settings link > YubiKey tab.


Now you can use the YubiKey NEO when logging in via the LastPass Android app or used as a normal YubiKey on your desktop.


Make sure that the NFC settings are enabled for your Android device. When prompted for the Yubikey, you simply have to place your Yubikey on the back of your phone for a moment.



YubiKey NEO with Windows Phone 8 App


It is a known issue that Yubikey NEO does not work with LastPass Windows Phone app.  Yubico has confirmed that it is due to the non-industry standard way NFC is implemented  on Windows Mobile devices, there could be issues with them successfully reading the Yubikey NEO (due to the fact the NEO emits both the NFC data as well as an RFID identifier, which causes issues with Windows devices).

Filling into Windows Applications

[accordion openfirst=ralse scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
 

LastPass for Applications (LastApp) on Windows is available for users with a Premium account and to members of our prebuild team. As with all Premium services, LastPass for Applications can also be tested with a 14-day free trial.



Benefits



[accordion-item title="Downloading & Running LastApp" color="Accent-Color" id="h2"]
 

 

If you have LastPass Premium and are using a Windows operating system, you can download LastPass for Applications to test it out, or you can  use our direct download links below:


For 32bit: https://lastpass.com/lastappinstall.exe


For 64bit: https://lastpass.com/lastappinstall_x64.exe


Simply click on the download file and run the installer. After clicking 'Finish', a small LastPass Icon will appear on your computer taskbar. If the icon is greyed out, simply click on it and select 'Login' from the menu:


Lastapp icon when not logged in

After submitting your email and Master Password in the Login dialog, the LastPass Icon will turn red to indicate that you are logged in:


Lastapp icon when logged in

Once you are logged in to LastPass for Applications, you will notice that the dropdown menu looks very similar to that of the browser plugin. However, you now have options for Applications-related features:


Lastapp main menu

Applications: The Applications submenu displays those applications that you have already added to LastPass. At the bottom of the submenu you can also select 'Add Application.'


Add Application: Launches the Add Application dialog box.


Fill Application: Autofills stored login data for an application.


 

[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Adding an Application" color="Accent-Color" id="h3"]
 

 

Let's use Skype as an example for adding a new application. First, launch the application that you wish to store in LastPass:


Skype Login Screen

Next, click on the LastPass for Applications icon on your computer taskbar and select Add Application. This will launch the Add Application dialog box:


Find button

Click Find and highlight the window of the application you wish to add:


Highlight the app

LastPass will then confirm the file location of the selected application. Click Next:


Lastapp finds the app file path

Now you will need to 'Train' LastPass to log in to the application. Clear out all data in the login fields prior to initiating Train; you may want to have the username and password stored in a Secure Note so that you can simply copy/paste the login data. When you are ready to record the login, click the Train button:


Train option

Now click back over to the application you want to store, enter your login credentials, and hit Login/Submit. When the application has successfully logged in, click back over to the LastPass Add Application dialogue, select 'Stop Training' and then 'Next':


Stop Training button

Now you should see an entry in your Applications submenu for the application that you just added:


new app entry

By going to your Applications Icon > Applications > Application Name, you can Launch, Copy username/password, Edit, Delete or Retrain the entry for the application.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Autofill Prompt" color="Accent-Color" id="h4"]
 

 

Due to Windows applications using custom UI's that don't always use standard controls, autofill for applications will often not be initiated or manually autofilled. When launching the application from your LastPass tray icon, LastPass should detect the application and show the autofill notification window:



Autofill prompt


Need to force fill?  You can use force fill with the "Fill Application" Menu item.



  1. Click on the LastPass system tray icon.

  2. Choose "Fill Application".
    Fill application option

  3. When the cursor turns into a target, click on the login screen to initiate the fill.


You can also initiate autofill by using the Hot Key Shortcut (defaulted at CTRL + ALT + F) - this setting needs to be enabled under preferences.







 

[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Preferences Menu" color="Accent-Color" id="h5"]
 

 

Lastapp Preference Settings

The above screenshot displays the options selected and not selected by default. These preferences allow you to modify when LastPass for Applications stays active, and how it interacts with your browser.




[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Application Parameters" color="Accent-Color" id="h6"]


If you need to pass specific command-line parameters to an application, you can simply edit the application and append the command-line parameters to the application's executable.  For example, if the application's executable is:


c:\windows\notepad.exe


You can change it to:


c:\windows\notepad.exe c:\test.txt


to pass Notepad a parameter of "c:\test.txt".


You can also include the application's username, password, and field values as parameters, by passing %username%, %password%, and %field#%, where # is the number of the field you'd like to pass (you can see field numbers by editing the application and then clicking Edit Form Fields).  For example, if you set the application's executable to:


c:\foo.exe %username% %password% %field2%


to pass the application the username as the first parameter, password as the second parameter, and field #2 as the third parameter.


A popular example is PuTTY.  The following would tell PuTTY to SSH to foo.bar.com:


c:\putty.exe -ssh %username%@foo.bar.com -pw %password%

LastPass Security Challenge

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
 
Security Challenge Detail Window 1

Due to the frequency of large-scale security breaches, it’s only a matter of time before bad password hygiene will burn you.


Whether it’s reusing the same passwords for multiple accounts or using passwords that just aren’t strong enough, bad password hygiene is an unnecessary risk that is easily fixed.


LastPass helps you make immediate changes to your password security by auditing your accounts with the LastPass Security Challenge. With the results, you can track progress as you fortify your online life with stronger passwords.


[accordion-item title="Why does this matter?" color="Accent-Color" id="h2"]
 

 

Over 1 billion data records are estimated to have been leaked in 2014 alone. And over 348 million Internet users in the US alone had their identity compromised in 2014.


Adobe, LinkedIn, Gawker, eHarmony, Evernote, and hundreds of other companies have suffered large-scale security breaches that compromised user information and account passwords.


As if it weren’t bad enough that millions of people have their personal information and passwords floating around out there, hackers can use the same username and password combinations to start trying to login to other websites.


Websites like PayPal, Gmail, Dropbox, and others have reported that hackers have tried logging in to user accounts and successfully gained access when the same username and password combinations were being used.


While services do what they can to stop this type of unauthorized access, simply using a unique password for every account would prevent these break-ins and the resulting fraud.


Every single website and app you use should have a unique, long, strong password. No password should ever be used on more than one site. Furthermore, you should only be creating a handful of passwords yourself. Why? Humans are notoriously bad at creating their own passwords. Leave that work to a password generator.


The only passwords you should have to create yourself are the master password to your password manager and the passwords you use to lock your personal computers and mobile devices.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Getting ready to audit your passwords" color="Accent-Color" id="h3"]
 

 

Before running the LastPass Security Challenge, you need to:


1. Have a LastPass account


2. Add as many of your passwords to LastPass as you can


If you haven’t yet signed up for LastPass, you can use the recommended download option on our downloads page and create a LastPass account.


Importing is an easy way to pre-populate your LastPass vault. If you use one of our recommended installers to set up LastPass, you have the option to import passwords. The importer will gather any passwords stored in your browsers, and automatically add them to your LastPass vault.


If you have already signed up for LastPass, you can import from your browser or other password managers at any time from the LastPass Icon favicon > More Options > Advanced > Import and follow our instructions to import from the selected source.


More Options on LastPass Dropdown Menu


You can also start browsing to the sites you regularly use, and start saving the logins to LastPass. For more help on getting started with saving and filling logins with LastPass, see our tutorials in our guide.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Auditing your passwords with the LastPass Security Challenge" color="Accent-Color" id="h4"]
 

 

Once you have added as many passwords as possible to your LastPass vault, you can run the LastPass Security Challenge.


You can launch the Security Challenge at any time from either the LastPass Extension Icon favicon > More Options > Security Challenge.


More Options on LastPass Dropdown Menu


OR find it on the left menu in your vault.


Security Challenge Option


Alternatively, you can visit this URL directly: https://lastpass.com/?securitychallenge=1&lpnorefresh=1


First, you’ll be prompted to enter your master password.


Run Security Challenge


As soon as you enter your master password and hit Enter, it will run a scan to check your vault locally on your machine. The results will be sent to us later.


Next, you’ll be asked if you want LastPass to check your email addresses to see if they were leaked in known data breaches. LastPass checks the email addresses that are stored in your vault as usernames, and compares them to lists of email addresses that were compromised in data breaches. If a match is found, we send you an email confirming which email address was affected and in which breach(es).


securitychallenge


If any matches are found, we recommend updating the passwords for those accounts, and you may want to update the password to your email accounts, too.


Once the results load, you will see three scores at the top of the page.


Your Security Score: This is a combined rating of how strong your passwords generally are, looking at how long and complex your passwords are overall. Whether or not you use two-factor authentication also accounts for 10 points of the total security score. The highest possible score is 100.


Security Score


Your LastPass Standing: This compares you against all other LastPass users who have run the Security Challenge. You are placed in a percentile according to your current security score. The lower the percentage, the better your ranking.


LastPass Standing


Master Password Score: This rates how strong your master password is, based on how long and complex it is.


Under “Improve Your Score”, detailed results then show exactly which sites have weak passwords, duplicate passwords, compromised passwords, and old passwords.


Master Password Score


In each panel, you can see which accounts you should take immediate action on to update the passwords. Notice in each panel, the sites are split up based on those where you can use “Auto-Change Password” and those where you launch the site directly and login to use the LastPass password generator to replace the password.


Under “Detailed Stats”, you can see a breakdown of how many sites have weak, duplicate, compromised, old, or blank passwords.


securitychallenge7


The password strength meter gives you a rating for each password listed - passwords under 50% are deemed “weak”. Again there is an action button next to each site that you can use to replace the password automatically or launch the website to replace the password with the generator.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Improving your Security Challenge Score" color="Accent-Color" id="h5"]
 

 

There are two ways you can immediately start improving your score. Depending on how many passwords you have that are flagged as insecure, the password replacement process can take just a few minutes or more than an hour.


Auto-Change Password: LastPass can automatically replace passwords for you on a growing number of sites. For any website listed with “Auto-Change Password”, you can select that option and LastPass will launch the website, login to that account for you, and update the password to a new one for you. The new password will automatically be saved to LastPass.


securitychallenge8


Launch Site: For any website listed with “Launch Site”, clicking this open will open the website for you. You can then login with your account, and make your way to the site’s password change page.


securitychallenge9


Typically, a change password page will require that you re-enter the old password (which you have stored in LastPass) and that you generate a new password.


To generate a new password, click the generate icon that LastPass has filled in the field. In the “generate” menu, look at the new password and make any adjustments if you want (such as making it longer or adding special characters). Once you’re satisfied, click the “use password” option. LastPass will confirm that you want to replace the password.


Password_Generate_Update


Once you confirm, LastPass will save the new password to LastPass, and you can submit the new password on the website, too.


Note: If you ever need to retrieve the old password, you can look up the account in your LastPass vault and “edit” the site. Next to the password field, you will see a “history” option to view the password history for that account.


[/accordion-item]

[accordion-item title="Checking Your Progress" color="Accent-Color" id="h6"]
 

 

After you’ve made password updates on several sites and eliminated all of your weak and duplicate passwords, you can run the LastPass Security Challenge again to check your progress. Note that your security score will likely have improved.


For an additional 10%, be sure to turn on two-factor authentication, too.


Any time you open your LastPass vault, you will see an indication of your Security Challenge Score. Continue to run the audit regularly so that you can continue to improve your score and swap out aging passwords.

[accordion-item title="Frequently Asked Questions" color="Accent-Color" id="h5"]

 

What Triggers a Credit Monitoring Alert?



LastPass credit monitoring protects you by continuously monitoring for any signs of potential credit tampering or changes in the above information, including:




How Will I Be Notified of Changes To My Credit Report?


When LastPass detects a change that negatively impacts your credit rating, the LastPass browser plugin will display a pop-up alert that you can click on to obtain more information. You will also be sent an email notifying you of the change.



What Do I Do When I Receive a Credit Monitoring Alert?


When you receive an alert, you need to find out what type of activity triggered the alert, determine whether or not that activity is fraudulent, and take action to remove any fraudulent items from your report.


The free credit monitoring alerts only notify you of a change, so the user must investigate further on their own. The Premium service provides more in-depth information on what changed in the user's credit report, and how the user can investigate and resolve the change.



Can I refresh My Credit Monitoring Data?


Subscribers to the Premium credit monitoring service can use the "Refresh Credit Reports" link in the Overview page of their credit monitoring dashboard to re-pull their credit data every 30 days. If it has been less than 30 days since the last refresh, the link will disappear. Once clicked, you will see a message that the "Credit Report & Scores Refresh has been submitted. Your new credit data will be available in 24 hours."


The feature is not available to users signed up for the free credit monitoring alerts.



Do I Get a Free Credit Report?


To receive your free annual credit report, as mandated by the FTC, we recommend you do so via https://www.annualcreditreport.com , the service recommended by the FTC. LastPass free credit monitoring only alerts you to the fact that a change has occurred, but does not provide in-depth information on what changed and how to resolve the change, nor does it provide your free annual credit report.


LastPass Premium credit monitoring does provide continual access to your credit scores, as well as detailed information on changes that have been made to your credit report. If you prefer not to request your free annual credit report, or want access to up-to-date information, you may want to consider LastPass Premium credit monitoring.



What Information Is Used For The Credit Monitoring Services, And Is It Safe?


In order to enable credit monitoring in your LastPass account, you must create a Form Fill Profile with your first name, last name, full address, Social Security number, phone number and birth date. The data is securely transferred via SSL to TransUnion® in the case of the free credit monitoring alerts, and to all three credit bureaus in the case of Premium credit monitoring, to monitor your personal information across thousands of databases, actively seeking evidence of fraud or identity theft on your behalf.


Monitoring your credit with LastPass credit monitoring alerts is safe and does NOT affect your credit score. There are no strings attached with the free credit monitoring alerts - you are not required to upgrade to Premium credit monitoring at any time. LastPass does not ask for your credit card information unless you choose to upgrade to the Premium version.


The full Terms and Conditions for LastPass credit monitoring can be found here and the Privacy Agreement can be found here.



Where is LastPass Credit Monitoring Available?

LastPass Command Line Application

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
 

The LastPass command line application makes it easier for you to get to data stored in LastPass on the terminal on Mac, Linux, and Windows under Cygwin.  And brings both better security and convenience by allowing you to access, add, modify, and delete entries in your online LastPass vault, all from the terminal. You can also generate passwords for every server you use and securely store those passwords directly in LastPass. LastPass Enterprise features are supported as well, including Shared Folders. Find detailed information in the CLI knowledgebase.



The command line application is hosted on Github at: https://github.com/LastPass/lastpass-cli


[accordion-item title="Create, edit, and retrieve passwords on the command line" id="h1"]
 

 

Users who prefer the command line can access their data directly with “lpass ls” then using “lpass show -c --password Sitename” to put the Sitename password on the copy buffer. You can utilize “lpass show” to store passwords used in scripts, rather than putting passwords in the scripts themselves. LastPass can also be used as you work within the command line to help you login to servers. We’ve included some example scripts in the contrib directory of the archive.


LastPass users can also use the command line to login to other machines as they work. There are examples such as contrib/examples/change-ssh-password.sh which shows automated password changing on a server. You could run it automatically on a nightly basis, regularly changing the password on the server as a security measure.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Automate Sharing" id="h2"]
 

 

Use the “lpass share” commands to manage shared folders: create a new shared folder using "lpass share create"; query existing users with "lpass share userls" and add new users with "lpass share useradd". The standard "lpass generate" command works with shared folders, so you can easily create sites and share with multiple users using lpass. See the manual for more shared folder commands.


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="lpass Subcommands" id="h3"]
 

 

lpass, like git, is comprised of several subcommands:



lpass login [--trust] [--plaintext-key [--force, -f]] USERNAME
lpass logout [--force, -f]
lpass show [--sync=auto|now|no] [--clip, -c] [--all|--username|--password|--url|--notes|--field=FIELD|--id|--name] {UNIQUENAME|UNIQUEID}
lpass ls [--sync=auto|now|no] [GROUP]
lpass edit [--sync=auto|now|no] [--non-interactive] {--name|--username|--password|--url|--notes|--field=FIELD} {NAME|UNIQUEID}
lpass generate [--sync=auto|now|no] [--clip, -c] [--username=USERNAME] [--url=URL] [--no-symbols] {NAME|UNIQUEID} LENGTH
lpass duplicate [--sync=auto|now|no] {UNIQUENAME|UNIQUEID}
lpass rm [--sync=auto|now|no] {UNIQUENAME|UNIQUEID}
lpass sync [--background, -b]

 

You can view the full documentation in the manpage, 'man lpass' or view it online.

LastPass via USB

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
 

When on the go, we recommend that you use our mobile apps . However, if you are in a situation where you need the LastPass plug-in and can't install it to a public or work computer, you should try the extensions below via a USB Thumb Drive.



[accordion-item title="IE Anywhere" color=" id="h1"]
 

 

The IE Anywhere application, one of our Premium portable offerings, allows LastPass users complete access to their stored data and all regular features of the browser plugin favicon without the need to download or install software on a computer. As with all of our Premium offerings, IE Anywhere can also be tested over a 14-day free trial.


After downloading the plugin from our downloads page (https://lastpass.com/misc_download2.php) to a USB drive*, users can access the new IE Anywhere features, including:




 

[tabbed_section] [tab title="Downloading IE Anywhere" id="t1"]

Download IE Anywhere


Locate the saved file on your computer and drag/drop the file onto a USB drive.


Now that IE Anywhere is saved to your USB drive, you can run it on browsers such as Internet Explorer, IE Tab in Firefox, Sleipnir and others on any computer with a USB port.[/tab]


[tab title="Using IE Anywhere" id="t2"]


To run IE Anywhere after inserting the USB drive into the port, simply open the USB drive folder and double-click on the application. A LastPass icon will appear in your taskbar:



If the icon is grayed out, you are logged out of LastPass. To log in, click on the icon and select Login, which will prompt you to enter your email and Master Password:



Next, launch your browser. A small LastPass icon will appear in the upper corner of the browser page:



By clicking on the icon, you will have access to all normal features of LastPass:



Now you can navigate to a site where you have a stored account with LastPass, and the plugin will autofill the information in the login fields:



The icon that appears within the browser page contains features that are relevant to the site you may be navigating to, such as AutoFill, Generate Secure Password, Copy Username or Password, Fill Form, or Save All Entered Data.


The icon that appears on the taskbar offers more global functions, such as launching your Local LastPass Vault, Sites, Secure Notes, Preferences, Help, and Tools:



To log out of IE Anywhere, simply click on the taskbar icon and select Logoff.


Click Exit and then eject your USB drive. No data left on the computer, no files created, nothing in the registry, and no plugin installed!


*Note: If you are unable to use a USB at your computer, IE Anywhere .exe file can also be installed on and run from a CD.

[accordion-item title="LastPass Pocket" color=" id="h2"]
 

 

LastPass Pocket is a stand-alone application (available for Windows and Linux) that can be installed on your desktop as a non-browser option. Or can be installed on a USB memory device, allowing you to carry your LastPass data around with you. Pocket provides backup capability and offline access for your Vault.  If you would like a mobile version of LastPass that has full functionality, we recommend LastPass Portable.


Since you can always access your LastPass data via the plugin or website, LastPass Pocket is intended to be used when you do not have an Internet connection but need to access information for a Secure Note Secure_Note or a SitesSites.


Pocket allows you to access all your data from the locally cached and encrypted version of your data on your local drive.  Using Pocket, you can also download all of your LastPass information from the server and store it in a secure, encrypted file that can be saved. As always, this data can only be unlocked using your email address and Master Password combination.


 

[tabbed_section] [tab title="Installing Pocket" id="t1"]


To install LastPass Pocket, navigate to the download page on the LastPass website, select the tab for your corresponding operating system, and scroll down to LastPass Pocket:


LastPass Pocket

Click 'Download' to install the application on your computer. You can then drag and drop the file onto a USB memory stick, where it can be accessed on any computer with a USB port.


[/tab]


[tab title="Using Pocket" id="t2"]




To launch Pocket, double-click on the application file. You will be prompted to enter your email and Master Password combination:



By default, LastPass will load your data via https://lastpass.com, but you also have the option of accessing a stored file from your computer.  Pocket will already have the local path to your cached data ready to be selected in the upload field.  You can also choose to upload your LastPass Encrypted File.   Simply enter your email and Master Password, then click 'Open' to begin using Pocket.


Please note,  your encrypted cache is present on your computer by default as soon as you log in to the LastPass browser extension, and can be used with Pocket.  This is now supported using Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, and Opera browsers.


To specifically use a LastPass Encrypted File,  you have to manually export this file for use with Pocket.  You can do this by going to your LastPass browser extension Icon > Tools > Advanced > Export To > LastPass Encrypted File.


After logging in, Pocket decrypts your data and displays all of your Secure Notes and Sites in a searchable interface:



The menu bar icons give you a range of options, including (from left to right)




Double-clicking on a piece of data will automatically save it to the clipboard on Windows PCs, allowing  you to then paste the login information on the site in the browser window. Although you can copy/paste all login elements of your saved sites or Secure Notes, you cannot edit or delete any data that has been synced to Pocket.

[accordion-item title="LastPass Portable" color=" id="h3"]
 

 

For users of Windows, Mac, and Linux (Firefox Portable-only), a version of LastPass that is compatible with FireFox Portable (Firefox 2.0+) and Chrome Portable (Chrome 18+, Windows and Linux only) can be installed on your USB thumb drive. If you frequently use public or untrusted computers, the Portable option is an ideal way to securely access your LastPass Vault.



[tabbed_section] [tab title="Downloading Portable Apps" id="t1"]

LastPass Pocket

LastPass Portable

Windows 8 Metro

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
 

LastPass is officially ready for the new platform, with the LastPass Windows app now available in the Windows Store!


The LastPass app provides access to all of your stored data and the core functionality of the password manager, but some features are more limited due to the nature of the platform.


Users must be running Windows 8 RTM to see the LastPass app in the Windows Store and run it on their computer. You must be running the official Windows 8 release to see the LastPass app in the Windows Store. If you're running the Release Preview or Consumer Preview versions, you'll need to upgrade.



[accordion-item title="Tips for Using LastPass in Windows 8" id="h1"]
 

 



 

[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Known Limitations of the App" id="h2"]
 

 


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Frequently Asked Questions" id="h3"]
 

 

Is LastPass integrated with the modern Internet Explorer 10+ (IE10+)? In the modern Windows 8 environment, IE10+ does not support plugins, so it is not possible for LastPass to integrate with it like the desktop version. If this changes, we will add support for it.


Is Internet Explorer used as the embedded browser in LastPass? No. While the browser included as part of the Windows 8 software development kit (SDK) is very nice, it is not a full-featured IE browser, and only allows the host application a limited level of control over its behavior. So while many or most sites will work correctly in the embedded browser, some sites may have strict browser checks that will not allow the embedded browser to work properly.


How do I make LastPass work with other apps, and those sites that don't work with the embedded browser? LastPass includes Copy Username and Copy Password commands in the app bar, that allow you to paste the information into Internet Explorer or other apps. If Windows 8 is updated to allow LastPass to work more closely with other apps, we will support that. In the meanwhile, LastPass supports snapped mode, so if you need to use IE or another app, you can snap LastPass to the side and use the copy commands to access your credentials.


Why doesn't LastPass support the Share charm? The Share charm is currently limited to sharing things like URLs and snippets of text, but has no way to specify whether the data is a username or password and should be handled appropriately or put into specific fields. If the Share charm is updated to allow LastPass to securely share login credentials, we will support it.


I can't find a feature or a feature doesn't work, what do I do? We will try to include as many of top LastPass features in the Windows 8 version, but some features may simply not be possible. Because applications in the modern Windows 8 environment are walled off from each other, except for very specific communications mechanisms such as the Share charm, features such as plugins are not supported. Finally, if something doesn't work properly, please contact us and let us know! We want to know what problems you're having, so that you will have a good experience with our Windows 8 app.


Can I install and run LastPass extensions into Windows Tablets (Surface/Surface Pro)?  Not on ARM-based Windows RT tablets (eg. Surface), but you can if it's an Intel-based tablet running full Windows 8 (Surface Pro).  However on Windows RT, you can still use Bookmarklets in the "desktop mode" for IE10.


How can I report bugs or questions to LastPass? Please open a support ticket with the team: https://lastpass.com/supportticket.php . The more details you can provide, including screenshots and steps to reproduce where applicable, the better we can investigate and resolve the problem you're reporting.

Bookmarklets

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]

A Bookmarklet is a special type of bookmark that executes code on the page you're viewing. If you are in the situation where you can't use a LastPass plugin, LastPass Bookmarklets help you access your data easily and securely. You may want to use the Bookmarklets if you have a mobile browser, are traveling, or are  using a browser other than Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome.


LastPass has three Bookmarklets: LastPass Login, LastPass Autofill, and LastPass Fill Forms.


[accordion-item title="Installing Bookmarklets" id="h1"]
 

To begin, login to your account. On the left menu, click More Options > Advanced > Bookmarklets within expanded menu as shown below.



Bookmarklets Option


You can then install the Bookmarklets using the links provided in the dialog box. Follow the instructions for your browser:


Opera: You must right-click the link and bookmark, then set to Show on Personal Bar which is in Details. You may also have to check View -> Toolbars -> Personal Bar, if it isn't checked already.


Konqueror: Bookmarklets are supported via Minitools. First, you'll need the konq-plugins package, if you don't already have it installed. Next, right-click 'LastPass Login!' above, and select 'Copy Link Address'. Then, go to Tools -> Minitools -> Edit Minitools. Click 'New Bookmark', and select the newly created bookmark. Type 'LastPass Login!' in the Name field, and paste the link you previously copied into the Location field (if http: is pre-populated in the Location field, remove it first). LastPass will now be available via Tools -> Minitools (you may have to restart Konqueror before you see it).


We don't recommend Bookmarklets in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome, as the LastPass plugin is vastly superior. However, if you can't install the add-on somewhere or you are traveling, you may want to use them:


Internet Explorer: Make sure Links or Favorites Bar is checked. You may also have to right-click the link and 'Add to Favorites', then put it under 'Links' or 'Favorites Bar'.


Firefox: View -> Toolbars -> Bookmarks Toolbar to enable the toolbar.


Safari: You'll need to click 'View', then show the Bookmarks Bar. For the iPhone, store this on your desktop browser and sync it to your iPhone. You may need to click on the device in iTunes, then go to the Info tab and ensure Sync bookmarks with is selected to the browser you saved the Bookmarklet on.


Chrome: Add the Bookmarklets either manually (directions below), or add them from the LastPass App > Menu > Preferences > Install Bookmarklets. Please see the video here on how to use them properly.


For mobile devices, the best option is typically to install the Bookmarklets on your desktop browser and then sync your bookmarks over.




[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Limitations" id="h2"]
 

The Bookmarklets have a few unique limitations that aren't present in the Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome plugins: Frame and Iframe based pages where the frames are in different JavaScript domain boundaries may not allow the Bookmarklet to fill in your data. You may be able to find a different login page, or open the specific frame in a new window to allow your login.


On your mobile device, the page displayed is often different than the non-mobile version, causing LastPass Fill! to not immediately work. You can usually force the fill and save the new copy of this page in LastPass.


The Bookmarklets require cookies; if you are seeing that you're logged in, you may need to enable 3rd party cookies to LastPass.com.


For security reasons, LastPass Bookmarklets rely on your browser to send referrers, so this must be enabled in your browser's settings (for most browsers, this is enabled by default).


If you change your LastPass Master Password, you will need to recreate your Bookmarklets: go to your vault > click the arrow next to Tools on the left menu > Bookmarklets > Recreate link.


Recreate Bookmarklets


[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title="Bookmarklets in Safari on iOS Devices" id="h3"]
 

This has been deprecated. Bookmarklets in Safari on iOS devices is no longer supported. Please install the LastPass iOS app to login to sites in Safari.

HP webOS

 

HP WebOS


 

LastPass for HP webOS (Palm Pre, Pixi, etc) allows you to carry your LastPass data around with you. LastPass for HP webOS is a mobile browser that displays all of your Secure Notes and Sites in a searchable interface. As always, this data can only be unlocked using your email address and Master Password.


As with all smartphone apps, LastPass for HP webOS devices is part of our Premium offering and can be tested with a 14-day free trial.







 

Installing for HP WebOS


 

To install, point your webOS web browser to this URL: http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=com.lastpass.lpwebos



Using LastPass for HP WebOS


 

Once you have installed the LastPass application, you can scroll through and tap the icon to launch the browser:



After submitting your email and Master Password, LastPass will launch your Vault.


Tapping 'Show' on the upper-left corner of the page allows you to switch between All Sites, Form Fill Profiles, and Secure Notes. Tapping a Site name launches the site in a browser window; from there you can choose to copy the username and passwords into the fields on the page. Unfortunately due to webOS' very limited API, autologin is not available on webOS.


The LastPass dropdown menu on the upper-left corner of the application allows you to Edit, Refresh LastPass Sites, Clear Local Cache, view the About page, view Preferences, or launch Help.


Browser integration is currently very limited due to the API, and HP has ended support for the OS as of January 15th, 2015.


HP webOS  has limited speed due to being web-based, so we take a number of steps to avoid using a lot of CPU time- we download and cache your data once, so each time you want updates, you must initiate it explicitly using the top-left LastPass Menu.


Your data is saved with your account names (not usernames) and group names unencrypted on the device, which we think is a good trade-off between security and speeding up the interaction.

HP TouchPad

 

HP Touchpad


 

We now support a functioning webOS 3.0 application tailored for the HP TouchPad.  This app has all the same features and functionality found in our HP webOS app.


You can install the LastPass app directly on your TouchPad with this link: https://lastpass.com/lpwebos.ipk


Please note that in order to download and run the app, you need to have Preware installed on your device: http://www.webos-internals.org/wiki/Application:Preware

Symbian S60

Symbian S60


 

LastPass for Symbian S60 (3rd Edition+) allows you to carry your LastPass data around with you. As always, this data can only be unlocked using your email address and password.


As with all smartphone apps, LastPass for Symbian S60 is part of our Premium offering and can be tested with a 14-day free trial.



Installing for Symbian S60 Devices


To install, point your Symbian S60 Browser to: https://lastpass.com/lpsymbian.jar



Using the Symbian S60 App


LastPass for Symbian S60 displays all of your Secure Notes and Sites in a searchable interface. It allows you to add, update, and delete Secure Notes and Sites:



When editing text (whether it be logging in with your LastPass master email address and password, adding a site, or whatever else), we recommend using the T9 soft key to invoke your phone's native editor. If the cursor is within a text field and the T9 soft key isn't present, try tapping the left or right directional buttons to get it to appear.


Account Recovery

[accordion openfirst=false scroll=true clicktoclose=true]
 

If you have forgotten your Master Password, we recommend following the below steps to attempt to regain access to your account. Recovery for LastPass is not the same as other services you may have previously used - due to our encryption technology, LastPass does not know your Master Password, so we cannot look it up, send it to you, or reset it for you. This means your data remains secure from threats, but also means that there are limited options when you forget your Master Password.


[accordion-item title="Recovery Steps" id="h0"]
 

 
[tabbed_section]
[tab title="Recovery steps"]

If you are having difficulty logging into LastPass, please attempt the following steps:



  1. Attempt to login through the LastPass website at www.lastpass.com and through the browser add-on in any browser on any computer available. If you are able to login via the website but not via the plugin, or are able to login on one computer but not another, this is likely a problem with the LastPass browser add-on, in which case you should try clearing your browser cache, and then report the problem to us directly.

  2. If you cannot login through the website, check your password hint (https://lastpass.com/forgot.php) that you setup for yourself when you created your LastPass account. The password hint is not your Master Password.

  3. If the password hint doesn't help you, go to the Account Recovery page (https://lastpass.com/recover.php) to follow the steps to activate your local One Time Password and recover your account. LastPass will send you an email with a link to launch in your browser. If the first browser on which you attempt to use the link doesn't work, try the same process on any other browser on any computer on which you have previously accessed your LastPass account. Please note that this can only be attempted from a desktop - mobile devices and apps are not supported for account recovery.

    Account Recovery Page



  4. Use the recovery link sent via email on all desktop browsers you have used in the past to log into your account until the recovery tool detects the recovery one time password and allows you to reset the master password. Below is what you see when you click on the recovery link.
    Account Recovery Clicking On The Recovery Link


  5. If all of these steps are unsuccessful and you've recently changed your Master Password, you can try reverting back to a previous version of your Vault (https://lastpass.com/revert.php). This should be a last resort, as you will lose whatever data you've changed or added since the date of the backup.

  6. If at this point you have failed to remember your password, your  hint didn't jog your memory, and you've tried the password recovery on every machine you've logged into, your only recourse is to Delete Your Account and start over.


You can choose not to save this disabled One Time Password by launching Preferences from the LastPass Icon menu, and selecting the Advanced tab (LastPass Icon > Preferences > Advanced tab). If you decide to disable the local OTP, your only recourse if your password hint doesn't help is to delete your account and start over. If you disable the preference after creating one, it causes the One Time Password to be deleted off LastPass' servers.


As with all One Time Passwords, LastPass cannot gain access to your account; you must be on a PC where you've enabled the feature to recover your account, since the random number of a One Time Password is stored on your computer and is unique to that computer.

[accordion-item title="SMS Recovery" id="h1"]
 

 

LastPass offers an optional account recovery feature via an SMS verification code. When you login to LastPass via the browser extension, a special recovery One Time Password is saved onto your computer. If you add a phone number to your LastPass account, LastPass can text you a code to help you reset your master password if you ever forget it by activating the recovery One Time Password.

Enable SMS Recovery



  1. Open your LastPass Vault.

  2. Launch the Account Settings.

  3. Scroll down to SMS Account Recovery.
    SMS Acount Recovery
  4. Click Update Phone.

  5. Add or edit your phone number

  6. Save your changes with the "Update" button.


Using SMS Recovery



  1. Go to the account recovery page.

  2. Enter your account email address.

  3. Check your phone for the SMS / text message with the verification code.

  4. Enter the code on the webpage to activate your local recovery One Time Password.
    Account_Recovery-SMS_code
    If it fails, try again in another browser as a separate local recovery One Time Password is stored separately in each browser you have used LastPass with.

  5. When recovery is successful, create your new master password.
