How do I log in to Windows using LastPass Workstation Login?

    Once you have completed the setup of LastPass Workstation Login for Windows, you can use the LastPass Authenticator app's stored biometrics or PIN Code (if biometrics aren't available) to log in to your Windows workstation – 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 a One Time Password (instructions below), which is generated within the LastPass Authenticator app on your registered device (if policies permit you to do so), or you can log in as usual with your username and password for your Windows account.

    Remember: If you change your Windows user account password, you will be required to log in with your Windows username and password to authenticate at least once before you are able to log in using the LastPass Authenticator app again.

    2. Check the box for the Log in with password or One Time Password option.
    3. On your mobile device, open the LastPass Authenticator app and locate the 8-digit alphanumeric One Time Password displayed for your Windows workstation.
    4. Back on your workstation, enter your One Time Password into the field and proceed to log in.

      Important: This is case-sensitive and must be entered exactly as shown.
