If your phone number has changed or the mobile device you use for authentication is lost, you will need to disable multifactor authentication for the LastPass Authenticator. To do so, you can use SMS account recovery to log in to your account and disable authentication. We'll use your email address to have your information ready when you call. Please note that due to the increased demand for remote-work solutions, some wait times may be longer than normal.

Why am I being prompted for Multifactor Authentication when I set my device as trusted?

If you have set your computer as a trusted device but still encounter the prompt for Multifactor Authentication, locate the LastPass data folder on your Windows, macOS, or Linux system and delete all the files found within that folder. Once deleted, you can set your device as trusted once again.

LastPass now offers the ability to create a time-based one-time passcode (TOTP) in the LastPass vault for Enterprise and Identity users. Time-based one-time passcodes (TOTP) are a form of two-factor authentication (2FA) that add additional security for each login. When a user is logging into a website or application, a TOTP requests that the user provides a verification code to ensure that the individual requesting to login is who they say they are.

TOTP differentiate from the LastPass Authenticator or LastPass MFA application as it is only for Vault site entries as opposed to externally saved sites or applications.

With TOTP, users can secure websites and applications with two-factor authentication to prevent data breaches. LastPass will store the TOTP next to the password of a site to provide simple access to protected sites.

In addition, for shared sites that require two-factor authentication, LastPass offers the ability to share TOTP in order to allow users to access the same site (using the same site credentials) without disabling a secondary form of authentication. This will simplify access for team passwords, such as social media accounts, IT administrator credentials, or shared portal logins.

Admins will have the ability to turn this feature on for their end-users through a new policy, called ‘Don’t show TOTP in vault’. When this policy is enabled, end-users will not be able to see the TOTP option in their LastPass vault.

Like all LastPass vault records, the codes are encrypted, backed up and securely synced to all your devices.
