How do I switch my active device type?
As a LastPass Free user, your first login on or after March 16, 2021 will set your active device type. LastPass Free offers access across two device types – computers (including all web browsers running on desktops and laptops) or mobile devices (including mobile phones, smart watches, and tablets). Starting March 16, 2021, LastPass Free will only include access on unlimited devices of one type. Don't worry! You can switch your active device type up to three (3) times, so you can determine which device type best suits your needs.
- Log in to LastPass on your non-active device type with your email address and Master Password. Tip: See What is my active device type, and how many switches do I have left? to see your current selections.
- When prompted, select Switch to mobile or Switch to computer (depending on your current active device type). Attention: Keep in mind that you will have up to three (3) times to switch your active device type. The third and final time you switch your device type, you will be prompted to confirm that as your only device type going forward. If you want to access LastPass on both device types, you must upgrade to LastPass Premium or Families.
