Edit a password
You can edit or view details of the passwords that are stored for your sites in your vault. For example, you can disable autofill for a password, or attach a file to it, even view its login history.
Tip: Vault items flagged with red "Password at risk" indicator are password strength alerts that encourage you to change the item's weak or reused password, or add a missing password to the item.

About adding attachments to passwords
Adding attachments can be helpful in maintaining access to important documents in case they are misplaced or you lose access to a printed copy.
Restriction: Adding attachments for secure notes and vault items is not supported in the LastPass for Windows desktop application.
Note: The LastPass Binary Component must be installed in order to upload attachments.
LastPass users can add various file types as attachments that meet the following requirements:
- Must be a supported file type: "avi", "csv", "doc", "docx", "gif", "htm", "html", "jpeg", "jpg", "key", "log", "m4a", "mov", "mpg", "odt", "pdf", "png", "ppt", "pptx", "rar", "rtf", "tif", "tiff", "tsv", "txt", "wav", "wmv", "xls", "xlsx", "zip"
- Each attachment file can be up to 10 MB in size, and your total storage limits are dependent on your account type (i.e., Free users have up to 50 MB whereas Premium, Families, Teams, and LastPass Business accounts have up to 1 GB).
- Attachments cannot be opened from the online vault in a web browser (i.e., logging in to https://www.lastpass.com). You can only download attachments by logging in using the LastPass browser extension, desktop app, or mobile app.
- If changes are made to an attachment, the updated version of the file must be uploaded as a new attachment.
