Resolutions with LastPass: #7 Update Your Account Email Address

We've said it before, but it's important that your LastPass account email address is up-to-date. You'll need a valid email address to receive security notifications, records of changes to your account, and other important updates from LastPass.

Take a moment to:
  • Update your LastPass account email address,
  • Update your LastPass account security email address,
  • Use the "Test" links to verify you receive notifications, and
  • Use LastPass to search for accounts still using an old email address.
You can update your LastPass email address at any time by logging into your account, going to your Vault, and selecting the "Account Settings" link at the top right.

In the Settings dialog that opens, you'll see a field with your current account email address. You can update the field with a new email address, and confirm the change.

If you've also enabled a "security email address" for your LastPass account, it too should be up-to-date. Emails regarding multifactor authentication devices and other security steps may be sent to your security email address. The security email address can also be updated at any time in the "Security" tab of the Account Settings dialog.

LastPass can also help you identify sites in your vault that use an outdated email address. Simply search for the email address in the vault, and you can note which accounts still utilize the old email address. Record any updates made to your online accounts when prompted by LastPass to save the changes.

With centralized access to your accounts, LastPass should help make your digital move much easier!

New: LastPass for BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 is Here!

With the official release of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 on the horizon (rumors anticipate a release sometime in February), we've officially launched LastPass in the BlackBerry App World! The app is our Android app repackaged to run on PlayBook OS 2.0 with the Android Player, providing more convenient, on-the-go access to your passwords.

We're also excited to see a positive initial response to the app's release! Isaac Kendall of CrackBerry.com writes that the new app has given him "a user friendly way to take advantage of the awesomeness that is LastPass."

Similar to the LastPass app for BlackBerry smartphones, the Android app for PlayBook includes:
  • A built-in browser that allows you to launch and autofill your logins
  • The ability to fill registration and shopping forms in the LastPass browser
  • Adding and editing sites, secure notes, form fill profiles, and other data stored in your vault
  • Copy-paste from the LastPass vault to other apps

You can now find the LastPass app in the App World for the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. Note that it's part of our Premium upgrade ($12 per year for unlimited access to all Premium features), but can be tested with a 14-day free trial.

Best,

LastPass for Windows Phone 7 Update: Edit, Add Sites and Secure Notes

Along with improving the overall performance of the app, our latest update to LastPass for Windows Phone 7 addresses one of our most heard user requests: the ability to update and add sites and secure notes!

After logging in to the LastPass app, you'll see an updated vault view. Although similar to previous versions with your sites listed by Groups, you'll now see an "Edit" link next to each site entry. Tapping "Edit" allows you to view, update, or copy-paste from the site entry:

As before, tapping on a site name launches the site in the LastPass browser.

If you tap the ellipsis (three dots) from the main vault view, you'll also notice an updated menu. "Add Secure Note" and "Add Site" are now listed as options, allowing you to add new data to your account:

The update to the Windows Phone 7 app is just the latest improvement to increase mobile functionality for LastPass users. More updates and improvements on the way!

Best,
The LastPass Team
