Require a Master Password Re-prompt
You can enable the Require Password Reprompt setting as an additional layer of security, which will require that you enter your Master Password in order to gain access to certain areas within your LastPass Vault. This setting can be managed for individual items in your Vault, or when you access an item type and/or perform certain actions via your Account Settings.
If you have a LastPass Teams or LastPass Business account, the ability to perform these actions may be limited or prohibited due to policies enabled by your LastPass admin.
