With one-tap verification and secure cloud backup, LastPass Authenticator gives you all the security, without any of the frustration.
In order to use this authenticator, you need to create a LastPass account in your desktop or mobile device.
Add more security
Safeguard your LastPass account by requiring two-factor authentication codes when signing in. Two-factor authentication improves your digital security by protecting your account with an additional login step. Even if your password is compromised, your account can’t be accessed without the two-factor authentication code.
You can even mark a device as “trusted”, so you won’t be prompted for codes on that device while your account remains protected by two-factor authentication.
Turning it on:
To turn on LastPass Authenticator for your LastPass account:
- Download LastPass Authenticator to your mobile device.

- In “Multifactor Options”, edit LastPass Authenticator and view the barcode.
- Scan the barcode with the LastPass Authenticator app.
