Frequently asked questions

How does passwordless login work?

  • From a user’s perspective:

    Your master password, which you previously typed in manually to log in to your LastPass vault, is replaced with the passwordless authentication method of your choice. Desktop users can choose from the LastPass Authenticator app, fingerprint or face ID, or a hardware key like YubiKey. In contrast, mobile users can only use their smartphone’s integrated biometrics feature.

  • From a technical perspective:

    LastPass now allows for passwordless login with FIDO2 authenticators. FIDO2 authentication uses W3C’s Web Authentication (WebAuthn) specification and FIDO Client to Authenticator Protocol (CTAP), industry-leading authentication standards which reduce the risk of phishing and all forms of password theft.

    FIDO2 authentication replaces the master password with a secure and fast login experience supported by possession-based credentials. Only you possess these credentials either through your device (LastPass Authenticator app), your unique physical attributes (fingerprint or face ID), or a hardware key (YubiKey or Feitian key).

How do I enable passwordless in my LastPass account?

The process of enabling passwordless login will depend on the device you’re using to access LastPass:

Will I still need a master password?

Yes. If you’re having trouble logging in with your passwordless authentication method, you may be asked to reinput your master password. This will verify your identity and allow access to your account. You must also input your master password to make any security-related account changes, including adding new trusted devices.

How to add another passwordless login device

How do I recover my account if I lose my device or forget my master password?

Whenever you establish a new method of authentication, make sure you’ve enabled the backup options available to that authentication method. By enabling backup, you’ll be able to establish your identity on a new device so you don’t lose access to your LastPass vault. Most all authentication methods will rely on an SMS code for you to verify your identity and then complete the backup restore.

What is FIDO2?

FIDO2 (Fast Identity Online 2) authentication is an open authentication standard developed by the FIDO Alliance that provides a more secure and convenient way to log in to online services, including the LastPass password manager vault. LastPass, as a FIDO2 Alliance board-level member, helps to develop specifications and raise awareness of this technology.

FIDO2 relies on public-key cryptography, which is much more secure than traditional password-based authentication. Instead of using a password that can be easily compromised or forgotten, FIDO2 uses a private key stored securely on the user's device and a public key registered with the online service. This ensures the user's credentials remain protected even if the service's database is breached. Like the LastPass zero-knowledge model, private keys never leave the user’s device and are never stored to the server.

Does LastPass support passkeys?

Coming soon, LastPass will support creating, saving, storing, and accessing passkeys, across all platforms and devices, right in the vault.

Typically, passkeys are accessed from the browser and device they were created on. With LastPass, it doesn’t matter what device or browser you’re on when you create a passkey. By storing your passkey with LastPass, you’ll have access to your passkey whenever and wherever you need them.
