LastPass Updated for All Browsers, Featuring Immediate Sync

An update to the LastPass addon for all browsers is now available on our download page! The update will happen automatically behind the scenes the next time you relaunch your browser, or you can manually download from The new release comes with several new features and performance improvements. Of note in the latest version are:

Immediate Sync

We are gradually rolling out automatic, immediate sync in all browsers for all users. Previously, updates were polled every 15 minutes, but now changes and updates will go through instantly! This is enabled by default, but if you uncheck the automatic polling option in the “Advanced” section of the Preferences menu, the immediate sync connection is also disabled. A portion of the userbase will see this to start with, and we’ll be ramping up as we roll out to all users and to mobile.

Secure Note History

Expanding on our “History” feature, which allows you to review password and username changes within a site entry in your vault, we’ve now added “secure note history”, so you can review activity specifically with secure notes. Currently, this feature can be accessed via the online vault at, once you login you can “edit” a secure note and choose the “history” option to review a record of edits to the note.

Weak and Duplicate Password Notifications in IE

After rolling out weak and duplicate password notifications in Chrome and Firefox, these alerts are now available in all browsers. As you login to your sites, LastPass will let you know if you’re using a weak password, or if you logged in with a password that you’re also using for another account stored in your vault. This will help you be proactive about generating strong passwords, and eliminating password re-use. Even better, you’re notified when you’re already on the site, so a new password is just a few clicks away.

Support for IE11

The latest update will support Microsoft’s upcoming release of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 8.1. Our addon will be fully compatible with Enhanced Protected Mode in IE, and will fully support the new browser.

Update July 7, 2014: As an addendum to the above, LastPass is unfortunately no longer compatible with Internet Explorer’s Enhanced Protected Mode and we are not continuing with development at this time. We will keep our community posted if this changes.

The updated build also contains a fix for an issue in the LastPass addon in IE, whereby if you were logged into the LastPass IE extension version 2.0.20 site passwords were potentially accessible in a memory dump. The above issue only affected the IE addon, and as soon as the browser session ended, the data would have been cleared from memory. The scope of the issue is minimal, but privacy and security of our users’ data is paramount. Malware is essentially the only way this could be exploited and we continue to encourage you to utilize anti-malware to protect your data.

Other notable additions include:

  • New Secure Note templates for Health Insurance and SSH Keys
  • Manage Your Email subscription preferences on the account page

This release also includes updates for LastPass Enterprise, including:

  • Secure note logging for better tracking of team changes to secure notes
  • Security score history so you can track your team’s progress in improving their passwords over time
  • Notification Dashboard so you can automatically alert employees who need to take steps to comply with company password policies
  • Linking of your personal account to your Enterprise account in both the local and online vaults

We recommend that all users update to our latest version available on or utilize our direct download link for the full Windows installer:

More exciting updates are in the works, so stay tuned!

    It would be very useful to have an option to disable the multi-browser sync feature. I’m using different browsers with different lastpass accounts on purpose.

    Otherwise, great product. The UI could use an update though.

    Please fix the disable option for weak password warning.

    I like previous toolbar. There is no search option in new password box. Is there any way to revert to previous toolbar? I have about 100 user/password of a site. It helped me a lot. But now I think I have to switch to another password manager.

    For some very important site like PayPal I used to save half of my password in lasstpass(for extra security), new password box just not let me type another half of my password. Please help me what to do with that.

  • Yet again some tech in my life has gone from awesome to awful in the name of progress. Or more accurately, probably just change for the sake of it, and trying to not look like you’re standing still. Whatever happened to “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” ? I spent a long time manually moving everything over to LastPast. It took me weeks, but was worth it for how (at the time) it simplified having multiple accounts with certain things. Now i am just locked out of multiple accounts, or constantly logging into one as i am trying to log out of that and into the next. And where Google actually has multiple log in already, LastPass will now always logging me out of one account as i log in to another. Whatever has gone wrong has now completely negated the point of this for me. I know i only have a free account, so i’m probably not worth listening to. But i had been telling everyone to try LastPass up until now.
