Setup Microsoft Authenticator

- Microsoft Authenticator is compatible with Google Authenticator as a standards based TOTP authenticator. Go to the LastPass Vault > Account Settings > Multifactor Options > Google Authenticator.
- Click “View” to view the barcode.
- In your Microsoft Authenticator app, tap on the + button to add a new account.
- On the next screen, tap the scan/camera button and scan the QR code.
- A new set of codes should now appear in the Authenticator app.
- Back in LastPass, set “Enabled” to “Yes”.

- You will be asked for your Authenticator code. Use your Authenticator app to fill in the code.
Using Microsoft Authenticator to Login
After your LastPass account is enabled with Microsoft Authenticator, the next time you login to LastPass on an untrusted device, you will receive the Google Authentication dialog:
Go to your Microsoft Authenticator App and input the current authentication code you see in the app into this dialog. If the code expires before you have a chance to authenticate, simply use the next code that appears in the app.
Logging in Offline
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.
