From the General Account Settings, click Show Advanced Settings, to view the following:

- Re-prompt for Master Password – Choose which actions will be protected by your Master Password. Learn more.
- Security Email – As an additional layer of security, you may wish to have an email address separate from the one you use on a regular basis to receive important LastPass security emails that require actions. This email address would be used to receive your, LastPass Multifactor Authentication disable email, password hint email, account recovery email, history removal verification email, reverting Master Password change verification email, and abuse/blacklisted IP notifications (these are also sent to your primary email). Learn more.
- Country Restriction – Allows you to restrict login to IP addresses originating only from countries that you select. Learn more.
- Tor Network – Blocks any logins that originate from Tor (virtual tunnel network). Learn more.
- Master Password Reverting – This option is enabled by default, and allows you to revert Master Password changes should you forget your Master Password. Uncheck this box to disable it. Learn more.
- Disable Email Verification – Allows you to skip email verification of unknown devices and locations.
- Disable Multifactor trust expiration – Allows you to skip 30 day expiration for trusted clients.
- Auto-Logoff Other Devices – If enabled, you can only be logged into one instance of LastPass at a time. If you log in from one device, it will log you out of all others.
- Password Iterations – Controls how many times your credentials are hashed using PBKDF2 before being sent to LastPass servers. Learn more.
- Website Auto-Logoff – This controls how long your session exists on the server, allowing you to automatically log in when using the plugin. This assumes that your session does not get destroyed by methods such as explicitly logging out or closing the browser when ‘Logoff when browser is closed’ is enabled in your Extension Preferences.
- Bookmarklet Auto-Logoff – Similar to the "Website Auto-Logoff" option in that it controls how long your session exists on the server, except it only applies to the Bookmarklets feature. Learn more.
Configure your preferred Multifactor Authentication options.
When logging on to a computer for the first time using Multifactor Authentication, LastPass will provide the option of approving the computer as a trusted computer by checking the box for the "Enable" option.
Doing so adds the computer to the "Trusted Computers" list, and ensures that you will not be prompted to enter Multifactor Authentication the next time you log in. These steps must be completed on every device that you want to mark as trusted.
You can disable a trusted computer at any time by unchecking the box for the "Enable" option next to the entry, or delete the entry entirely by clicking the Delete Entry icon . If you want to rename a trusted device, click on the Edit icon , type the new name into the Label field, then click the Save icon to save your changes. Learn more about managing your trusted devices.
Each time you successfully login via a mobile device, the mobile device’s unique identifier (UUID) will be added to a list on the Mobile Devices tab. All devices listed here can be renamed, enabled, disabled, or deleted. Be sure to click the Save icon to save your changes.
If you would like to restrict which devices can log into your LastPass account, click the Enable or Disable button to restrict access to all mobile devices except those allowed to access your LastPass Vault.
LastPass does not restrict mobile login by default. Learn more.
You may encounter a Site that you do not want LastPass to offer to save, generate a password for, fill forms, autologin, or autofill. The ‘Never URLs’ tab allows you to view, edit, and add all of those Sites for which you do not want LastPass to ever act on. Learn more about managing Never URLs.
If you access multiple websites from a single provider, adding these Sites as equivalent domains allows you to use just one username and password. Learn more.
If you have multiple logins for a particular domain, LastPass fills in the closest URL match by default, but will display all Sites from that domain in its matching list.
This behavior can be changed to only show Sites that match particular hosts/paths by managing your URL Rules. To manage your URL Rules, go to your active LastPass icon > Account Settings > URL Rules. Click the Delete Entry icon to delete the URL rule. Learn more.
