Add an Email Address for Security Alerts

Depending on your security settings, LastPass may occasionally email you security notifications that require your response. These notifications by default are sent to the email address associated with your LastPass account.

New! (For LastPass business accounts only)

If you want to add another layer of security and have the notifications sent to a different account (to safeguard against instances like your primary email account being compromised), do the following:

  1. Log in to LastPass and access your Vault by doing either of the following:
    • Go to and log in with your username and Master Password.
    • In your web browser toolbar, click the LastPass icon LastPass then click Open My Vault.
  2. Select Account Settings in the left menu.
  3. Click the General tab, and then click Show Advanced Settings.

  1. In the Security section, enter a Security Email address where you want security emails to be sent, and at the bottom of the screen, click Update.

  1. The system prompts you for a verification code that it emails you. (It may take a few minutes for the email to reach your inbox.) Enter this code into the browser window, and click Confirm.

  1. If prompted, enter your Master Password and click Confirm.
