Transakt Authentication

Transakt is an app developed by Entersekt to bring banking-grade two-factor authentication to your mobile device. Transakt works with LastPass to enable you to authenticate your login by responding to a simple Accept or Reject prompt directly on your mobile phone or tablet.

Transakt protects you against threats such as phishing, man-in-the-middle, man-in the-browser, and replay attacks. It’s free to install and a snap to configure for use with LastPass.

After you have completed the LastPass installation, do the following:

1.   On your mobile phone or tablet, go to gettransakt.com.
2.   Install the Transakt app.
3.   On your computer, go to My LastPass Vault and log in using your email address and your LastPass master password.
4.   From the Actions menu, click Settings.
