New LastPass Enterprise Feature: Link Your Personal Account to Your Company Account

We’ve added a new feature to LastPass Enterprise that allows you to link your personal LastPass account to your Enterprise LastPass account, making it even easier for you to maintain a workflow between the two!

Take the following scenario. You’ve been a LastPass user for a while, and are loving the convenience and security it adds to your digital life on a daily basis. You start thinking about how disorganized your office is when it comes to passwords – always tracking someone down to get that login, trying to find the Post-It that someone tacked to the community board with the pin to that program…And that’s when you suggest LastPass Enterprise, the SMB solution to password problems!

But once you convince your company to give LastPass a go, you may run into the issue of keeping your current, personal account separate from your newly-created Enterprise account. However, you also don’t like the idea of managing two different LastPass accounts. And that’s where Linked Accounts comes in!

Our new option to “Link Personal Account” allows you to integrate your personal account with your Enterprise account, without mixing your personal data with your business data.

Getting set up with Linked Accounts is easy. Just login to lastpass.com with your Enterprise account. Once you’re logged in, you can click on the “Link Personal Account” link on the left-hand Actions menu:

When prompted, you can then login with your personal account. And voila! Your personal LastPass account will now appear as a sub-folder in the vault of your Enterprise account, and you will be able to view, edit, and login to your personal sites as usual.

Whatever company policies have been created by your organization for LastPass Enterprise will be applied to that sub-folder when you are logged in via your Enterprise account. However, you can still login separately to your personal account, and those Enterprise policies will not be transferred over, nor will the login activity for the sub-folder or your personal account be reported to the Enterprise Admin. Any updates you make to the sub-folder will automatically be pushed back to your personal account.

More great LastPass Enterprise updates are on the way. Try adding your LastPass account to your Enterprise account today – and if this has held you back from starting a trial for your company, check out LastPass Enterprise to see if it meets your company’s needs!

Thanks,

The LastPass Team

    Hello,

    I have multifactor authentication enabled on my personal account, and when I try to link my personal account to my enterprise account, the multifactor authentication window that comes up doesn’t work, and it only has a link to disable multifactor authentication if i lost my device.

    I don’t want to have to disable multifactor authentication on my personal account.

    Please advise.

    This is great BUT Form Fill Profiles do not get excluded, making it pretty useless to me as now I have to sign out and back into my personal account in order to fill in forms.

    Another one, I don’t seem to be able to set it to save to my personal folder by default, meaning a bunch of sites keep getting saved to my enterprise account – not ideal.

      Hi Martin: Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately there are some significant technical hurdles for making form fill profiles visible with linked accounts, but we hope to support it in the future. It sounds like there may be an Enterprise policy prohibiting updating your personal account, if you see ongoing problems with this please reach out to the team: https://lastpass.com/supportticket.php so we can take a closer look.

    nevermind, it’s not in the vault

    the vault interface has changed from the one pictured in this article, and there is no option on the left for ‘Link Personal Account’. i’d really like to do this but i can’t find the option in the new interface at all.

  • We want to share one shared folder with a contractor (system admin) that works with many other companies besides ours. They need to link their personal LastPass account to our Enterprise account so they can access our shared folder data. However, they will need to link it to other companies’ Enterprise accounts as well, obviously.

    How do they do that?

    (The alternative doesn’t work: once the secure note is inside a shared folder, it is impossible to share it with individual users. We tried that.)

    • Amber says:

      Hi Kevin,

      The best option is to make copies of the secure note, to be added to multiple shared folders if needed. The contractor may also need to make multiple accounts, since they can only link their account to one Enterprise at a time. Let us know if we can be of further help.

      Best,
      Amber
