Get LastPass for Mac Now

With convenient new features like Quick Search, you have instant access to logins, passwords, and the other important details you’ve stored in LastPass. We’re bringing a fresh design, and giving you more ways to use and manage your data. LastPass for Mac is the hub for your online life, so that throughout the day, at work and at home, you can get more done and be more secure.

Here’s a tour of the features that make this app a must-have for any Mac user:

Faster Online Logins

Our favorite feature in the LastPass Mac App is the Quick Search. Whenever you need to find a password or Secure Note, just call up the Quick Search with the Shift+Command+L hotkey (⇧⌘L) or from the LastPass Menu Bar Icon.


It lets you instantly find what you need, so you can keep interruptions to your workflow to a minimum. Once the Quick Search is open, enter a keyword to find any login or Secure Note and use the Launch button to open the website in your default browser. Then LastPass instantly fills the username and password, and logs in for you.

A Streamlined Workflow

Just like our browser extensions and mobile apps, LastPass for Mac offers a Vault where you can conveniently edit, organize, and manage your passwords, Secure Notes, and more. It’s the same experience you’re accustomed to in the browser, optimized for the Mac desktop.


LastPass for Mac is also built to offer the same convenient offline access available with the LastPass browser extensions. Your data is backed up automatically with a secure local copy, so it’s available even without an Internet connection. And when you connect again, LastPass securely syncs your data so your Vault is always up-to-date.

Real-Time Security

LastPass has always focused on helping you create stronger passwords and keeping you informed of your progress in improving your online security. The Security Challenge in the Mac app gives a real-time analysis on the strength of your passwords and a snapshot of your security score. By helping you immediately identify weak and duplicate passwords, you can replace them with new, generated passwords, so you know you’re taking the right steps to protect your digital identity.

Get It Now

So what are you waiting for! Head to the Mac App Store now to download the LastPass Mac App for free:

We also recommend downloading the LastPass Safari extension to pair with the LastPass Mac App, for the best experience in the browser. And if you’ve got an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, be sure to download and trial our LastPass Premium app from the iTunes app store, so you’ll always have your passwords, no matter what device you’re using.

    Yikes, super buggy! Lastpass > About Lastpass brings up a window I can’t close. My main vault window has frozen after a few minutes. Will post bug reports, but surely an extended beta release would have been recommended, you’re going to get unfair negative reviews on the MAS. Will you release a non-MAS version also?

  • Ben Lewis says:

    This is sooo buggy!!! If you give me an internship this summer I’ll fix it up for you (amongst other things) :)

    (Examples of issues – clicking on entries should not open editor – this can make it super easy to crash by selecting multiple things – it should be an icon – you should be able to select multiple entries – you should make the Folder a dropdown only with the list and an add option which opens a textbox to enter entries – you shouldn’t show the “Install LastPass for the Web” on every start, especially if it’s installed – etc)

  • Alex says:

    Any plans for a Windows version in the near future?

  • Santosh says:

    How do I remove the app from the dock? I just need the menu bar icon.

  • John W says:

    I really hope the future version of this desktop app can replace the memory hungry browser extensions. This is useful for people whom uses many browsers for different purposes.

    • Amber Gott says:

      They work best together, with the extensions to autofill for you since they can “see” into the webpages in the browser, but we’ll keep improving overall!

    • Ian says:

      Not sure which browser you use, but profiling LP I don’t see anything “memory hungry”, neither in its process or the added overhead on web pages (you can use some of the benchmarking tools from the excellent µBlock extension for Chrome/Opera to test)…

  • Nate says:

    How is this better/different than just using the browser extension? Can’t we still manage our vault and launch sites from there?

    • TJ says:

      I have this question, too. It’s not clear from the post or video. Hope someone answers you!

    • Amber Gott says:

      If you login to other desktop apps or terminal windows, the copy function from the mac app is really handy, especially when used with the hotkey.

      Some people also prefer a desktop app experience, they might find it easier to call up their vault and organize things there.

    • Daniel says:

      The Quick Search (command+shift+L) could be useful for quickly launching sites/viewing secure information without having to open Chrome in the first place.
