Multifactor Authentication

Multifactor Authentication, or two-factor authentication, is the requirement of a second piece of information before allowing access to an account.

After enabling multifactor authentication, the user is required to enter both pieces of data (username/password + generated piece of data) each time they login to the account or service.

How it works.

Get proactive with multifactor authentication.

Passwords will be around for quite a while longer. Even if you're using a password generator to create strong, unique passwords, it does not protect against all threats.

Because websites have implemented different security standards and requirements, we strongly recommend enabling a form of multifactor authentication with LastPass and with any sites you're using that currently support it. Doing so will help you better protect and mitigate risks for your LastPass account, and your online life as a whole.
