I have a new phone, how do I move passwordless login to my new device?

    If you have replaced your mobile device that had passwordless login activated for logging in to SSO apps and/or workstations, you can pair the LastPass Authenticator app with your new device or contact your LastPass admin.

    Fastpath: Are you trying to add a new device for using passwordless login for your vault? View these instructions instead.
    Notice: Passwordless login for SSO apps and workstations requires an account with the LastPass Business + Advanced MFA add-on, whereas passwordless login for your vault is available for all account types and does not require activation.
    Before you begin: Download the LastPass Authenticator app on your new iOS or Android device.
    About this task: Activate passwordless login for your LastPass account on your new mobile device as follows:
    1. Go to http://identity.lastpass.com.
    2. Click Having trouble logging in?

      Passwordless login options

    3. Enter your email address for your LastPass account, then click Next.

      Troubleshooting: If you see a message, "Passwordless policy is not enabled" during sign-in, contact your LastPass Business admin to request that you be assigned to the SSO app or workstation so you can use passwordless login.

    4. Select I have a new phone > Send me a recovery email.

      Result: You are sent a passwordless login registration email to pair your LastPass account with your mobile device.

    5. Check your inbox for an email from LastPass.

      Warning: Before you proceed, please be aware that you will block access and delete all of your passwordless login data from your previous device when you click Start Registration within the email.

    6. When ready, click Start Registration.
    7. Select one of the following options:
