Add and Manage LastPass Admin Policies
LastPass Enterprise offers a number of configurable and recommended policies around security levels and password strength that you can add, edit, or delete as an admin. Each policy can be applied to all users, or an inclusive or exclusive list of users (e.g., a policy that prohibits all users from exporting data except for those who are admins). With over 100 policies available for you to add and configure, you can achieve the most optimal security performance with LastPass.
You can view our complete list of LastPass Enterprise policies that you can add and manage. Please note that you must be actively logged in with a LastPass Enterprise or LastPass Identity account in order to view the full list of actions available.
LastPass Enterprise policies are separate from those available in the LastPass SSO and/or MFA Admin Console – please see Policy Management for more information.
You can also learn about policies that affect federated users below.
If you have a LastPass Identity account, please see the policies specific to that account type below.
For LastPass Enterprise admins, there is a brand new policy available for hiding integrated SSO below.

About policies for LastPass Identity accounts
Admins for LastPass Identity accounts (includes LastPass Vault, integrated SSO, and LastPass MFA) can enforce the following policies:
- The Require use of LastPass MFA policy can be enabled to require users to set up and use the LastPass MFA authenticator when accessing their LastPass Vault.
- The Hide Cloud Apps from end users policy can be enabled to hide the Cloud Apps menu item (used for integrated SSO) from appearing in the left navigation of users' LastPass Vaults (if the admin has already implemented their own single sign-on solution or does not need to use LastPass integrated SSO).
