Popular password management tool, LastPass, offers a bunch of security options to keep your passwords safe. If you’re not aware of all these options, though, such as using a dedicated security email address, it’s a good time to review.
How-To Geek has compiled a list of 11 ways to increase your LastPass account security. Many of these we’ve discussed before, including restricting logins by country and disabling TOR logins and activating two-factor authentication (as you should for all your accounts where this extra security is available).
A couple of notable security options you should enable in LastPass include: restrict mobile access (to specific mobile device UUIDs or disable mobile device access entirely), log off automatically (be sure to set this in any browser extension preferences too), and use a dedicated security email address. That latter option means if someone hacks into your everyday account, they still won’t be able to get the account recovery emails or password hint emails for LastPass. (Limiting your dedicated recovery email address is one of the lessons we learned recently from Mat Honan’s hacked story.)
Most of these options are under your LastPass account settings, so head there to lock down your LastPass account as much as possible.
