From Passwords to Passports, a New Way to Manage Your Family’s Digital Life

The LastPass family is about to get bigger. Coming your way this summer, we’re excited to announce LastPass Families that will make it easy to manage your family’s digital life. The LastPass Families addition is just one more way we’re delivering a faster, simpler, and more intuitive password manager for all our users.

When it comes to keeping your loved ones safe online, recent research found that 91% of people feel that having a strong password allows them to protect their family better. We’ve seen this reflected in your requests for more shared folders and the ability to buy and manage licenses on behalf of others. We also know it’s a growing challenge to keep track of all your family’s information online: healthcare provider logins, school passwords, streaming media accounts. What worked 10 years ago, even five, just doesn’t cut it anymore.

Enter LastPass Families, where you can store everything from bank accounts to passports to credit cards. Your details are secure, organized the way you want, and easily shared with your spouse, kids, in-laws, and more. You can even give access to others in the event of an emergency. The family manager can quickly add and remove members to the account, making it easy to get everyone up and running.

Take a look at what’s coming with LastPass Families:

Unlimited sharing with your family
Every family is unique, so you need a flexible way to store and share information with others. With LastPass Families, organize items into as many folders as you need, so you can share login credentials to household bills with your significant other, while sharing entertainment sites with the whole family – all while keeping personal sites separate in your private vault.

A family backup plan
There’s no telling what the future holds, and traditional methods of preparing for the unknown no longer cover everything. With LastPass Families, you can combine all valuable information, from online bank accounts to Social Security cards to healthcare details, in one place and give emergency access to a family member so you’re never locked out in unexpected situations.

Simple setup & management
With a LastPass account for up to 6 family members, LastPass Families allows everyone to easily store and access all their passwords and information, no matter what device they’re using. The lead family manager purchases the subscription and is able to designate additional managers, as well as add and remove family members.

Coming Soon… 

As a thank you to our LastPass Premium customers, we will be giving them the opportunity to try LastPass Families free for six months. We’re excited to finally share this news with you, and we can’t wait to get your family on board later this summer. Stay tuned!

    My wife and I have 2 LastPass accounts. With the new LastPass family, can we merge accounts into one LastPass family account?

    • Katie Petrillo says:

      Yup! When it’s available, you can upgrade your account to LastPass Families and invite your wife to join so you’re part of the same subscription.

  • David Geist says:

    I currently have a 3 yr subscription to Last Pass Premium. After the free 6 month subscription for Last Pass Family runs out, and I wish to keep the Last Pass Family, would I get prorated on the cost of the Last Pass Families package? Thank you for all you do. I love Last Pass and have gotten lots of friends to join.

    • Katie Petrillo says:

      We love hearing that you share LastPass with others! As a Premium user, you’ll be able to try LastPass Families free for six months, and at the end of that time period, you can go back to Premium or upgrade to Families. If you choose to upgrade, the amount remaining on your Premium subscription will be applied to the Families cost (which we’ll be announced when the new product is available) and you’ll pay the remainder, if applicable.

  • Charles Kim says:

    This is a good idea. I need to share among four members of our family information proprietary to our family no matter what device they may be using, and wherever they may be traveling. The storage has to be secure yet the access is simple and convenient as in LastPass. It also needs to have a common storage area where information to be shared is stored. On the side, each family member also needs to have his or her own storage for his or her private information. Also required is a log kept in common area for tracking access, addition, and modifications.
    Will be looking forward to seeing this new application.

    Can’t wait! Looking forward to this enhancement!

    I currently use lastpass and my son has his own premium account- this sounds like a great way to combine it all- but if we already have two different accounts will we be able to combine them into one family account?

    • Katie Petrillo says:

      Definitely! If you move to LastPass Families, you and your son can be in one ‘family’ where you can each maintain your private vaults, but have a shared subscription and create folders of items that you want to share with each other.

  • Leland Austel says:

    I am trying out a Team account on a trial basis to solve the issue of letting my family members have their own separate vaults while also being able to share other information in specific vaults with each other. This sounds like it could be the solution I’ve been looking for, but I suspect it will fall short and be more limited that I am looking for. Let’s see!

    • Katie Petrillo says:

      This sounds like what you’re looking for Leland! With LastPass Families, you’ll each have your own separate, private vaults, but be able to create as many shared folders as you need to.
