About LastPass MFA Account Activation

The LastPass MFA authenticator is an adaptive authentication solution that supports various forms of authentication, including biometrics (face or fingerprint recognition), as well as pattern matching. You can use this authenticator to verify your login for your LastPass Vault (if you have one) and/or websites that you sign in to and use daily.
