How do I install LastPass using an automated silent installer for macOS?

Many large companies restrict their users’ installation privileges to avoid inadvertent security breaches, meaning that employees aren’t able to install software on their own computers. For this reason, LastPass admins can download the automated silent installer for macOS and deploy the DMG file (using their desired installation method) across their organization.

Note: Are you seeing something different? See instructions for the Password Manager Admin Console.
Before you begin: Please open the Terminal app on your Mac before proceeding.
  1. Log in with your email address and Master Password to access the new Admin Console at https://admin.lastpass.com.
  2. Go to Advanced > Install software.
  3. Select macOS from the drop-down menu.
  4. Select Automated silent install.
  5. In the Terminal window, run the following commands for your desired installers:
    Browser Command
    Safari curl -s "https://download.cloud.lastpass.com/mac/installer/safari.sh" | bash
    Note: The Safari installer includes the latest version of the LastPass for Mac app.
    Google Chrome curl -s "https://download.cloud.lastpass.com/mac/installer/chrome.sh" | bash
    Note: The LastPass extension for Chrome installer requires administrator account privileges on macOS to access Chrome's install directory.
    Firefox curl -s "https://download.cloud.lastpass.com/mac/installer/firefox.sh" | bash
    Note: The LastPass extension for Firefox installer needs Python version 2.7 or later.

    Note: Some web browser windows may open and provide additional instructions to complete the installation process.

    Result: You have installed LastPass using the automated silent installer(s) for macOS.
