Move items to a shared folder

    Move items from your vault into a shared folder, or transfer items from one folder into a shared folder in your vault.

    Attention: If you encounter an error when using the sharing feature (either sharing individually or using shared folders), you must upgrade to the latest version of the LastPass browser extension (v4.104.0 or newer). Download the latest version of LastPass on your device.

    About moving items

    Please be aware of the following:
    • You are unable to move items that have been individually shared with you to your own shared folder.
    • When you move an item to a shared folder, an additional "backup" copy of the shared item is automatically moved to your Deleted Items folder and stored there for up to 30 days. This is a precautionary measure so that you can restore the item from the "backup" copy in your Deleted Items folder in case either you can no longer locate the shared item or an issue occurs in an attempt to share that item. Learn how to restore deleted items.
