Settings You Should Enable To Make Your LastPass Account More Secure

Popular password management tool LastPass offers a bunch of security options to keep your passwords safe. If you're not aware of all these options, such as using a dedicated security email address, it's a good time to review them.

How-To Geek has compiled a list of 11 ways to increase your LastPass account security. Many of these we've discussed before, including restricting logins by country and disabling TOR logins, and activating two-factor authentication (as you should for all your accounts where available).

Other notable security options you should enable in LastPass include restricting mobile access to specific mobile device UUIDs, logging off automatically (be sure to set this in any browser extension preferences too), and using a dedicated security email address. That last option means that if someone hacks into your main email account, they won't be able to get the account recovery emails or password hint emails for LastPass. (Limiting your dedicated recovery email address is one of the lessons we learned recently from Mat Honan's experience of being hacked.)

Most of these options are under your LastPass account settings, so head there to lock down your LastPass account as tightly as possible.

    The security email is a good idea: a massive hole in the usual lastpass 2 factor authorisation is that a simple click turns it off via an email confirmation. If your email is hacked, the 2 factor is useless.

    Note: Lastpass also supports Google Authenticator - it's not made clear in the easily available help (it focusses on of Grid and Yubikey, but doesn't mention GAuth.
