    About the removal of users enabled with Symantec VIP

    The Symantec VIP integration is associated with your LastPass Business account. If you remove users from your company account without first disabling Symantec VIP as their multifactor authentication option, then – once removed – those users may become locked out of their LastPass account (if their account is converted to a LastPass Free account). For this reason, we recommend disabling the Symantec VIP for users you plan to remove.

    About this task: To disable Symantec VIP for certain users, perform the following steps.
    1. Go to!/dashboard and log in to access the Admin Console.
    2. Select Users in the left navigation.
    3. Check the boxes next to your desired users.
      Tip: To sort by users enabled with Symantec VIP, click the Multifactor column header row in the users table.
    4. Select More actions > Disable multifactor for selected users.
    5. Click OK to confirm.
    Results: You have disabled Symantec VIP for your selected users, and you can now safely remove those users from your company account without risk of locking them out (if their accounts convert to LastPass Free accounts).
