How do I use LastPass HotKeys on my Mac?

LastPass HotKeys allow you to create keyboard shortcuts for a number of LastPass features. Since these shortcuts vary among operating systems and web browsers, you can configure a set of default HotKeys to use for LastPass. It is important to verify that a change in one of your LastPass HotKeys will not interfere with other default keyboard shortcuts for your computer. You can configure your HotKeys for using the LastPass web browser extension, Safari app extension, Legacy LastPass Mac App, and/or the new LastPass Mac App.

Configuring HotKeys

  1. Log in to LastPass with your email address and Master Password.
  2. Instructions for configuring HotKeys will vary, depending on how you use LastPass on your Mac:
    LastPass component How to configure
    LastPass Safari app extension Click the LastPass Safari app extension icon , then go to Account Options > Extension Preferences and select HotKeys.
    LastPass Mac App Click the LastPass Menu Bar icon then go to Preferences > HotKeys.
    Legacy LastPass Mac App Click the LastPass Mac App icon in your Menu Bar , then go toPreferences and locate "Shortcuts".
    LastPass web browser extension Click the LastPass web browser extension icon, then go to Account Options > Extension Preferences and select HotKeys.

HotKeys available

There are several HotKeys available for you to configure within LastPass.

Note: The only HotKeys available in the Legacy LastPass Mac App are Quick Search, which is Shift+Command+L (⇧⌘L) by default, Vault, and Password generator.
  • Generate Secure Password – If you are creating a new account, this HotKey allows you to bring up the Generate a Password dialog box and copy the auto-generated password. The Generate Secure Password HotKey is Alt+G by default.
  • Recheck Page – If the page has changed since it was loaded and LastPass hasn’t filled in the available fields automatically, this HotKey allows you to quickly force LastPass to check the page again. Recheck Page can also be accessed from the Tools menu in your LastPass icon menu options. The Recheck Page HotKey is Alt+I by default.
  • Site Search – Brings up the dialog box showing all of your stored sites with a search bar that allows you to easily sort through your sites. You do not need to be in your LastPass Vault to open the Site Search dialog using the HotKey. The Site Search HotKey is Alt+W by default.
  • Next Matching Site (if multiple) – If you have multiple logins stored for the same domain or URL, LastPass will autofill with one of your entries but will prompt for you to fill with one of your other saved sets of login data. You can easily move to the next autofill options by using this HotKey (Meta+Page Up by default, with Meta being the "Option" key)).
  • Previous Matching Site (if multiple) – If you have multiple logins stored for the same domain or URL, LastPass will autofill with one of your entries but will prompt for you to fill with one of your other saved sets of login data. You can easily move to the previous autofill options by using this HotKey (Meta+Page Down by default, with Meta being the "Option" key).
  • Submit Form – Automatically submits a login form or web form. The Submit Form HotKey is Alt+J by default.
  • Open My LastPass Vault – Need quick access to your local Vault? This HotKey opens your local Vault in a new tab or window, according to your General settings. The Open Vault HotKey is Ctrl+Alt+H by default.
  • Save All Entered Data – The Save All Entered Data allows you to automatically capture all login data for the page. LastPass shows you the captured data in a dialog box, where you can edit the settings for the Site before clicking save. There is no default Save All Entered Data HotKey.
  • Log Out – Allows you to immediately end your LastPass session, and will autolog you out of any open Vault pages as well as extensions that are sharing browser states. There is no default logoff HotKey.
  • Fill In Default Form Fill – Once you have set your default Form Fill, this HotKey allows you to autofill a web form with a few keystrokes. There is no default Form Fill Profile HotKey.
  • Open Popover – Allows you to open the LastPass in-field icon menu to select your desired stored item. The default HotKey is Meta+\ with Meta being the "Option" key).
