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 update the stored password for the Site within your Vault.

You can update your recently changed password that LastPass has stored for your Site using the Field icon, web browser extension, manually within the Vault, or even automatically using Auto Change on supported websites.

Update using Auto Change

Auto Change is a beta feature that allows you to change a Site’s password with a single click. This feature currently supports some of the most popular websites available (see list below), but experience may vary. It is available on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox for users running LastPass v3.1.7 or later.

Is Auto Change secure?

Auto Change is a feature that was created with security as a top priority. Although LastPass is changing the password for you, the changes occur locally on your machine. Just like all other data on your account, the password change that occurs is encrypted locally before syncing, which ensures that your data can never be accessed by LastPass.

How to Use Auto Change

  1. If you have not done so, log in to LastPass.
  2. Click the active LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar, then click Open My Vault.
  3. Locate your desired Site, then hover over it and click the Edit icon .
  4. In the Edit Site window, click Auto Change Password below the "Password" field. Note: If you do not see this option, it is likely that the Site does not support this feature, or you are using an unsupported web browser or version of LastPass.
  5. Once a new web browser tab opens, click Change Password Now. LastPass will display a progress bar while opening another web browser tab (do not close out of this tab) and logging in to your selected Site, generating a new secure password, and updating it for both your Site settings and within your LastPass Vault.
  6. When the changes are complete, LastPass will automatically close the additional web browser tab for the Site. Click OK on the confirmation message, and LastPass will sync your updated password on all of your devices.
