What to do next: (Recommended)

It is strongly recommended that you perform the following steps immediately after updating your Master Password in order to create new Recovery One Time Passwords:

  1. Log out of LastPass on every computer and/or mobile device where you have installed and accessed your LastPass Vault. You can check your active sessions for all devices.
  2. Log back in with your new Master Password.
For each computer and/or device where this is done, a new Recovery One Time Password is created, which can be used for account recovery if your Master Password is ever forgotten.

What to do next: (Optional)

Changing or resetting your Master Password will invalidate all one-time passwords that you generated before the change occurred (as it requires your Vault to be re-encrypted). This means that you will need to generate new OTPs after a Master Password change, as all OTPs you generated previously will no longer be listed. Learn how to generate new one-time passwords.
