Why doesn't LastPass launch, save, or autofill my data for a site?

Having trouble? Let's try troubleshooting first, then check a few other things if that doesn't resolve the issue.

Troubleshooting

Let's try deleting the site entry, then adding it back to your Vault.

Delete the site entry and add it automatically

  1. Delete your site entry (instructions here).
  2. Add your site back automatically – in your web browser toolbar, click the inactive LastPass icon .
  3. Enter your username and your LastPass Master Password, then click Log In. An active LastPass icon is now displayed in your web browser toolbar to indicate a successful login.
  4. In your web browser, navigate to your desired site.
  5. Enter your username and password for the site and proceed to log in.
  6. When the Add to LastPass? window appears, click Add.

Delete the site entry and add it manually

Additionally, if your site uses a multiple-page login, you can use this feature to save your site information for each separate page when you add your site.

  1. Delete your site entry (instructions here).
  2. Add your site back manually – in your web browser toolbar, click the inactive LastPass icon .
  3. Enter your username and your LastPass Master Password, then click Log In. An active LastPass icon is now displayed in your web browser toolbar to indicate a successful login.
  4. Navigate to your desired site.
  5. Fill in your login data but do not log in. If desired, you can generate a secure password.
  6. Click the LastPass icon Add itemSave All Entered Data at the bottom of the menu. For Internet Explorer users, click the LastPass icon ToolsSave All Entered Data.
  7. All captured fields are displayed. If desired, enter more information and specify your desired settings for the item.
  8. Click Save when finished.

Still having trouble? Let's check a few other things:

Confirm that LastPass is installed and enabled

If the LastPass icon does not appear in your web browser toolbar, be sure that the LastPass web browser extension is installed and enabled.

Confirm that you are logged in to LastPass

If an inactive LastPass icon appears in your web browser toolbar, click the icon then log in with your username and Master Password.

Confirm that autofill is enabled in your Preferences

Check your Preferences by doing either of the following (based on your navigational view):

  • Click the LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar, then go to PreferencesGeneral > Enable the setting Automatically Fill Login InformationSave.
  • Click the LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar, then go to Account OptionsExtension Preferences > Enable the setting Automatically Fill Login InformationSave.

Check that the site is not Flash-based or Silverlight-based

LastPass does not support either of these platforms. To check if your website is built on one of these, right-click on the website's login fields and view the context menu for more information.

Confirm if the site is using HTTP (not HTTPS)

For security purposes, autofill via LastPass will not occur on initial page load because the site is not secure, however, you can still manually fill your data for sites that use HTTP.

Check if you set your Preferences to warn before filling insecure forms

If this Preference is enabled and the site you are visiting uses an insecure method of submitting data, you will encounter a message, "LastPass detected a login form that is insecure, would you like to continue?" You can click OK to use autofill, or Cancel to manually fill (if desired).

You can enable or disable this setting in your Preferences by doing either of the following (based on your navigational view):

  • Click the LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar, then go to PreferencesAdvanced > Enable or Disable the setting Warn before filling insecure formsSave.
  • Click the LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar, then go to Account OptionsExtension Preferences > Enable or Disable the setting Warn before filling insecure formsSave.

Confirm the site has not been set as a Never URL

You can disable LastPass for specific websites using Never URLs.  If it has and you want to remove it so LastPass can be used on the site, do the following:

  1. Log in to LastPass and access your Vault by doing either of the following:
    • Go to https://lastpass.com/?ac=1 and log in with your username and Master Password.
    • In your web browser toolbar, click the LastPass icon LastPass then click Open My Vault.
  2. Click Account Settings in the left navigation.
  3. Click the Never URLs tab.
  4. If your site is listed, click the Delete icon Remove.
  5. Click OK to confirm.
