Security Check

Launch the LastPass Security Challenge to see how secure your login data is! The Security Challenge analyzes the information stored in your LastPass Vault, ranks your security on a scale of 0 to 100, and compares you to other LastPass users who have taken the challenge. LastPass will also suggest ways you can improve your security.

Identities

You can toggle between Identities here,  or add a new one.

Open Favorites

This quick link option will open all ‘Favorites’ entries in separate tabs in your browser.

About

Gives you information about the plugin you are currently logged into, including the version and build date.

Advanced Tools

A submenu of advanced tools, that includes:

Site Search

Looking for a specific site or Secure Note? ‘Site Search’ lets you search among all of your saved entries.

Recheck Page

Some sites, such as www.hulu.com, use Javascript or Ajax to dynamically show the login form, in which case you may need to click ‘Recheck Page’ for LastPass to properly fill in the saved login fields.

Refresh Sites

If you have edited site information or otherwise notice that LastPass is delaying in processing a change, click ‘Refresh Sites’ to force LastPass to process any changes. If your favicons  have defaulted to a blank page image, or if your Group names appear as random characters, the ‘Refresh Sites’ function may resolve these issues.

Clear Local Cache

If you are using the plugin to access your LastPass account, encrypted data is stored on that computer. Select ‘Clear Local Cache’ to remove any files that have been stored during your session. We recommend this when you’re using a public or friend’s computer.

Check for Updates

Select ‘Check for Updates’ to see if a new version is available for your LastPass plugin.

My Account

Brings you to https://lastpass.com/my.php, gives details on your account and support requests.

Other Sessions

Allows you to view all devices and IP addresses where you accessed your LastPass account. If you happened to leave an account open on another device or are unsure whether you did so, you can go to ‘Other Sessions’ and select ‘Kill Checked Sessions’ or ‘Kill All But Current Session’ to log yourself out.

Export To

Export options vary between browsers, but we offer a variety of ways for you to backup and store your LastPass account data. For example, on some browsers you can export as a CSV File, as an encrypted file, or you can transfer your data to the browser’s password manager.

Import From

If you were using a password manager prior to using LastPass, you can use the ‘Import‘ function to transfer the data to LastPass.

Print

You can print either your stored Sites or your Secure Notes.

Add Site

Although we recommend that you add a site by logging in as usual and saving the entry when prompted by LastPass, the ‘Add Site’ function in the Tools menu also allows you to manually store login data for a site.

Save All Entered Data

For sites that LastPass is having difficulty saving, use this function to force-save the data on the fields.

Add Secure Note

A Secure Note can be added from the Tools menu, in addition to adding a Secure Note by clicking on the LastPass Icon, selecting ‘Secure Notes’, and clicking ‘Add Secure Note’.
