How do I log in to my Mac using LastPass Workstation Login?

If you have activated LastPass MFA for your account and installed LastPass Workstation Login on your Mac, you can use the LastPass MFA authenticator app's stored biometrics or pattern to log in to your Mac  – no password required!

Alternatively, you can log in with a One-Time Passcode generated for your registered device from the LastPass MFA app, or you can log in as usual with your username and password for your Mac.

Please note that if you change your user account password or reboot your Mac, you will be required to log in with your Mac username and password to authenticate at least once before you are able to log in using LastPass MFA again.
