Windows Surface

LastPass for Microsoft Surface is an application that will allow you to carry your LastPass data around with you and easily login to websites from your Surface devices.

LastPass for Microsoft Surface includes a built-in browser that will automatically fill your login information for each of your stored LastPass sites while giving you access to most major features.

The Windows application allows you to download all of your LastPass information from the server and store it in a secure, encrypted data-store that is saved to your Surface device. As always, this data can only be unlocked using your email address and Master Password.

As with all Surface apps, LastPass for Surface is part of our Premium offering.
