Your LastPass Vault

The LastPass Vault is a page that allows you to see all of your sites and applications:

vault

It is a locally-hosted file so it is secure and fast.

Your Local and Global Vaults

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

tools

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 global 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.

Local Vault

Your sites are organized by Groups (folders) with your Favorites at the top for easy access. If you click on the name of the site, LastPass will open the corresponding URL in a new tab (or browser) and autologin using your stored username and password:

folders

Each site entry in your Vault has the option to Edit, Share and Delete. By clicking ‘Edit’ you will launch the ‘Edit Site Information’ dialog box, where you can view the URL, username, password, and settings for that specific site:

By clicking on the small icon above the scrollbar on the right-hand corner of your Vault, you can toggle which columns of site data you wish to show and hide:

You can also drag the separators of the column names to adjust the width of each column.

As you type in the search form above your sites, LastPass searches and filters your sites shown below:

search

Several advanced features are available to help organize and administer your sites easily. You may select multiple sites (by holding down your Ctrl key or Shift key when you click) 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 icon next to your email, you can launch your extension Logoff, open your Favorites, install Bookmarklets, view your History, Import or Export Sites, create or view One Time Passwords, and Show Deleted Sites:

Bookmarklets: Links to the Bookmarklets dialog where you can learn how to install Bookmarklets and use the feature.

Logoff: Selecting this will log off your LastPass account

 

 

Online Vault

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:

Actions Menu

From the ‘Actions’ menu on the left side of the Online Vault you can access the following:

Settings: Launches the Edit dialog box for your Account Settings. From there you can manage your security preferences, multifactor authentication devices, and more.

Manage Shared Folders:  For Enterprise Users only, this button will link you to your Shared Folders dialog.

Admin (Enterprise) Console: For Enterprise Users only, the ‘Enterprise Console’ link launches your Admin console, where you can set up and assign roles, manage account sites, and more.

Link Personal Account/Remove Personal Account:  For Enterprise Users only, this button enables you to Link your Personal Account to your Enterprise account as a Shared Folder available only to you. Once it is linked, you can click the link to un-link the account.

Add Site: You can manually add an entry for a site, although we recommend that you add a site by logging in as normal and saving the login data when prompted by LastPass.

Add Secure Note: Launches the Secure Note dialog box where you can enter and store sensitive data.

Create Group (Folder): Allows you to Add a Group for your sites.

User Manual: Takes you to the LastPass User Manual where you can search for more information on LastPass features.
