Using Mobile Account Recovery for Your Device

Whether you use LastPass on your web browser, desktop, or mobile app, you should set up Face ID or Touch ID to use account recovery for your Android or iOS device.

Recovery Using a Password Hint

You may use a password hint to reset your Master password. When creating the password, you are asked to create a hint. If you have it, navigate o the website and enter your email address. When you click on the option 'Send Hint,' a clue will be sent to your email address. If you have enabled secondary security in your email, you may not receive the message.

Revert to an Old Password

Reverting to an old password is another effective way of recovering your account. This option allows you to enter a previously used password. The following are a few important things to keep in mind when reverting to an old password;

1. If your latest Master Password change happened over 30 days after the last time it was changed, you cannot recover your account by reverting the password

2. If you successfully revert your password, your last Vault is restored to what it was before the password changed

This option is often used as a last resort after other methods fail. Follow these steps to restore your old password;

1. Navigate to the revert option on the site

2. Enter your email address and click 'Send Email'

3. You will receive an email with a link to revert your password

4. A new web browser window opens indicating the date your Master password was changed

5. Click 'OK'

6. You can use your old Master password to log in to your account

Recovery Using a One-Time Password (OTP)

If a password hint does not work, most people choose to use this method to recover their LastPass password. With this option, you won't lose any of your data.

If you have used a lot of computers to access your LastPass account,

The process may take longer than usual. Every computer or web browser you use you used to access your account needs a different recovery password. If, for example, you used two different computers and two web browsers on each, you will need six recovery passwords. Follow these steps to attempt a recovery;

1. Find the recovery option in the website

2. Enter your email address and click on the option 'Continue'

3. If you have SMS recovery, you will receive a verification code on text. If you enabled a security email but not SMS recovery, you will receive an email. Click on the link to continue the process

4. Click Press to Recover Account

5. You will be prompted to change your password. Click 'OK' to continue

6. Enter your new password and a password hint

7. Click 'Confirm'
