What is the security score in my Security Dashboard?

The security score is a feature within the Security Dashboard of your LastPass Vault that automatically calculates the strength of your stored site passwords.

How do I get a security score?

Your security score is continually calculated as you add site passwords to your LastPass Vault. You can then access your Vault and view your security score.

How is the security score calculated?

Your security score is a combined rating of how strong your passwords generally are – meaning their overall length and complexity – with the highest possible score being 100 points. However, in order to get a perfect score, you must have at least 50 site passwords stored in your LastPass Vault.

The following settings affect your overall security score:

  • The total amount of stored passwords you have – must be at least 50 passwords in order to pass with a perfect score of 100 points.
  • Whether or not you have enabled Multifactor Authentication accounts for 10 points. Learn how to enable.
  • Permitting offline access deducts 1 point.
  • Allowing unrestricted mobile devices to access your Vault deducts 1 point.
Note: Sites that manage their own password requirements (e.g., passwords are not permitted to be complex and/or lengthy, using a Pin code instead of a password, etc.) may be counted against users as "weak passwords" in their security score.
