Set Up SMS Account Recovery for LastPass
As one of your Master Password recovery options, you can set up SMS account recovery by adding a mobile number to your account to receive a verification text message in case you every forget your Master Password. Using this option as a means of account recovery will trigger the Master Password recovery flow as long at least one of your browsers has captured a Recovery One Time Password (which is created by logging in on the extension at least once).
