Master password

The master password is the most important password to remember. You use your master password along with your email address to access your password vault. The vault is where all of your individual site log-ins are stored. 

The master password must meet the following criteria:

  • Be at least 12 characters long
  • Contain at least 1 number
  • Contain at least 1 lowercase letter
  • Contain at least 1 uppercase letter
  • Must not your email address


The LastPass Vault is a page that allows you to see all of your saved data. It is a locally-hosted file so it is secure and fast.
