Introducing an updated Mac OS App for LastPass

Today, we’re excited to launch a fresh look and feel for the LastPass Mac App! The app now features the same updated look that you’ve been seeing in your browser extension and mobile apps. This experience makes it easier to get started with LastPass on your Mac, and provides a cohesive vault interface for users.

A Refreshed Vault Experience

We’re aiming to provide the same great experience for all of our users, no matter where they’re using LastPass. With that in mind, we’ve updated the Mac app vault to match the vault you see on your mobile apps, on the web, and in the browser extension.

Improved Onboarding for New Users

For new users starting on the Mac App, they will experience a simple, intuitive walkthrough of how to get started on and use the LastPass Mac App. From adding new sites to creating secure passwords, the Mac App makes it easy to access your digital life so you’ll be more productive, and in control.

Paving the Way for Future Updates

We’ll continue to make improvements and edits to our user experience so that you have fast, seamless access to your passwords, notes, and more. This update to the Mac App allows us to apply changes quickly across all of our apps, devices, and browsers.

Stay tuned for additional updates from the Mac OS team, and be sure to download the latest version of the from the LastPass website or Mac App Store.

Akos Putz is the lead product manager for our mobile platforms.

    I appreciate the fact that you guys addressed the issues Leah Bachmann articulates above. I presume you decided to delete an earlier comment I made here which betrayed serious frustration and irritation upon discovering the issues after upgrading. I have no problem with that choice in light of Leah’s post and your response to same. Meanwhile and most importantly, thank you for quickly addressing the concerns we and surely many others briefly shared.

    Congrats on the release, Akos & Team! :D Happy to see this in the wild!

    Really like the new look – but it crashes constantly for me on Mac 10.13.6 (High Sierra).

    Just need to login, view an existing stored entry and click on the “eyeball” icon to try to view the clear text password – and crash!

    Or, put into edit mode, then click on password field – and crash!

    The streamlined, crisper UI look and unified Vault experience are nice.

    However, there is a major usability impact for me which I have not been able to find any way to work around:

    In previous versions, using the Mac keyboard shortcut for Quick Search (CMD+Shift+L) and typing partial or complete site names from my Vault let me highlight (using arrow keys if the first option returned by search was not the one I wanted) and copy the password directly (CMD+C) without moving my hands from the keyboard. This use has been a major time saver and is one of the big draws for us to use the Desktop app on Mac.

    Now, the Quick Search capability has more options on returned sites – Edit, Copy Username, Copy Password, and Launch. However, there is no discernible way to copy the site’s credentials by default using only the keyboard – it now requires two mouse-clicks (one on the copy icon, and another on Copy Username or Copy Password). Quickly signing in to various authentication portals is now more laborious and error-prone when we are forced to reposition and use the touchpad or an external mouse. This is a major source of frustration and severely hinders what was previously a responsive and convenient user experience with the desktop app.

    Please add a configuration option or restore the default copy (CMD+C) of the password on a site when using Quick Search!
    In the meantime, how can we go about reverting to the previous version of the desktop app?
