How do I log in to my Mac using LastPass Workstation Login?

    Once you have complete the setup of LastPass Workstation Login for Mac, you can use the LastPass Authenticator's stored biometrics (face recognition or fingerprint identification) to log in to your macOS user account – no password required!

    Note: This feature requires an account with the LastPass Business + Advanced MFA add-on. How do I upgrade my LastPass Business account with an add-on?
    Alternatively, you can log in using any of the following methods below (if your policies permit you to do so) instead of accepting a push notification via the LastPass Authenticator:
    • Using Touch ID (if it has been set up)
    • Using a One Time Password, which is generated within the LastPass Authenticator on your registered device.
    • Using your macOS user account and password (standard login)

    Please note that if you change your user account password or reboot your Mac, you will be required to log in with your macOS user account and password to authenticate at least once before you are able to log in using the LastPass Authenticator again.

    Log in using a push notification

    Your mobile device must be online (connected to the Internet) in order to receive a push notification via the LastPass Authenticator.

    1. On your mobile device, open the LastPass Authenticator.
    2. On your macOS login screen, select Authenticate with LastPass MFA App.
    3. On your mobile device, tap Accept when prompted.
    4. Verify your identity using stored biometrics (face recognition or fingerprint identification, or PIN Code if biometrics aren't available) on the app.
    You are now logged in to your Mac via Workstation Login – no password required!

    Log in using Touch ID

    Before you begin: You must set up Touch ID for macOS before proceeding.
    1. Access your Mac login screen.
    2. Scan your fingerprint on the sensor of the Touch Bar (as indicated by the Touch Bar notification).
    You have authenticated using Touch ID and are now logged in to your macOS user account.

    Log in using a One Time Password (OTP)

    You can log in to your Mac using a One Time Password generated from the LastPass Authenticator, which is a login method that can be used if your computer is offline.

    Restriction: In order for you to access your workstation in offline mode, your LastPass Business must assign you to a Workstation Login policy that allows offline access.
    1. On the macOS login screen, click within the Enter Password, OTP, or Use Touch ID field.
    2. On your mobile device, open the LastPass Authenticator and locate the One Time Password displayed for your Mac.
    3. Back on your Mac, enter your One Time Password, then proceed to log in.
    You are now logged in to your Mac using the LastPass Authenticator's One Time Password in Workstation Login.
