Manage Your Vault
The LastPass Vault is where all of your passwords, Notes, and items are stored, and easily accessible in the left navigation. Your Vault is a locally-hosted file, so you can access your stored data securely and quickly. You can organize your Vault view by folders, move or manage items in bulk, and manage your user account.
Note: Your LastPass Vault has an unlimited capacity of items that can be added, however, you can expect to see performance degradation when 2,000 items or more are stored.

Log in and access your Vault
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 then click Open My Vault.
Icons for Vault items
Each of your stored Vault items are represented by a generic icon per entry, which will vary depending on the item type. However, password entries may have a logo that represents the site you saved if it is a popular site and/or recognized by our system (e.g., Google, Facebook, Amazon, etc.).
Note: Logos cannot be manually uploaded for an item.
To view all icon types, log in to your LastPass Vault and click All Items in the left navigation, then click the Add item icon in the lower-right navigation.
Once you open your Vault, you can easily access your passwords, notes, and various form fill items in the left navigation. Items are listed by category (addresses, payment cards, bank accounts, etc.), and the categories displayed in the left navigation will vary depending on which items you added first to your Vault.
Below your item categories, you have easy access to your Cloud Apps, the Security Challenge, Sharing Center, Emergency Access (Premium and Families accounts only), Account Settings, and More Options, which includes the following:
- Try LastPass Families (if you are a Free or Premium user)
- Go Premium (if you are a Free user)
- LastPass Enterprise (trial)
The items stored within your Vault are organized by folders (groups) with your Favorites and Most Recent at the top for easy access. You can customize how your folders display the entries within by clicking the Sort By drop-down menu, then selecting the Grid View icon or List View icon . To view a folder's entries, click the Arrow icon to expand/collapse each individually, or click the Expand All icon to expand all of your Vault folders.
As you type in the "search my Vault" field in the top navigation, LastPass searches and filters your passwords, Notes, and items in the main window of the Vault.
Several advanced features are available to help you manage your passwords, secure notes, and items easily. You can move items in bulk by selecting multiple entries (click to enable the checkbox in the upper-right corner of each entry), then dragging and dropping your items to new folders. You can also select multiple entries and right-click to perform various tasks on all of your selected items.
