For those of you who use LastPass through our Safari extension, we need your attention. Apple has implemented a change in how they handle Safari extensions. Previously, a Safari user could simply download an extension and use it in their browser. Now Apple is requiring users to download and install a Mac App to get the extension.
What this means for you
If you use Safari, the good news is you can continue to use the browser extension as you always have. The new version will simply open as an application on your desktop and run in the background. But the browser extension will still appear in the top of your browser bar.
To keep your browser extension working as usual – please download the required app from our site. The steps are highlighted below – and you will also be prompted to complete each step.
- Download app here
- Install and run the app
- Login to the app
- Enable it in Safari – in the Preferences/ Extensions.
Installing this new version will uninstall the old one. Click here for more detailed instructions.
Once you complete the above steps, you are good to go! Just keep using LastPass and Safari together.
