Change Site Passwords

To keep up with best security practices, it is recommended that you update your Site passwords regularly to minimize security compromises. First, change your password directly on your desired website within the website's settings, then LastPass will prompt you to update your stored password within your Vault.

You can also manually update any recently changed passwords that LastPass has stored for your Site using the Field icon, web browser extension, or manually within the Vault.
