How do I install and log in to the LastPass Mac App?

You can download and install the LastPass Mac App to use for all of your password management needs.

Important: Safari is the default web browser that is used when launching site entries via the LastPass Mac App, and this default setting cannot be changed to allow use of another default web browser.
Tip: Are you seeing something different? You may be using the LastPass for Safari app extension. For more information, see instructions for how to install and/or how to use the LastPass for Safari app extension.
  1. Download and install the LastPass Mac App from LastPass at https://lastpass.com/misc_download2.php#app-for-mac.

  2. When the installation finished, open the LastPass Mac app to launch it.
  3. Enter your email address and Master Password, then click Log In.
  4. If multifactor authentication is enabled on your account, you will be prompted by your default multifactor option (which can also be changed). Follow the prompts to authenticate, which will vary depending on how multifactor authentication is configured for your account (e.g., facial recognition/fingerprint identification, push notification, time-based passcode, SMS passcode, etc.).

    Note: You can also click Additional Multifactor Options (on computer) or tap Use Alternate Multifactor (on mobile) to choose a different method (unless you are part of a company account that has disabled this option). If desired, you can also enable the setting to trust the device for 30 days (unless this option is disabled by your LastPass administrator).

You have successfully installed and logged in to the LastPass Mac App, and your Vault is now displayed.
