Lastpass Terms of Service:

The following terms and conditions govern all use of the and other LastPass websites and all content, services and products available at or through the website (taken together, the Website). The Website is owned and operated by LastPass. The Website is offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies and procedures that may be published from time to time on this Site by LastPass (collectively, the 'Agreement').

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using the web site. By accessing or using any part of the web site, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the website or use any services. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by LastPass, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.

Your Account.

You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with it. You must not use your account in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others, and LastPass may change or remove any description or keyword that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause LastPass liability. You must immediately notify LastPass of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security. LastPass will not be liable for any acts or omissions by You, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, LastPass has the right (though not the obligation) to, in LastPass' sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in LastPass' reasonable opinion, violates any LastPass policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in LastPass' sole discretion. LastPass will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.

LastPass Standard (free edition) is intended for personal, non-commercial use only. The unauthorized commercial use of LastPass Standard is prohibited. LastPass reserves all its rights in the event of a violation of this policy, which may include discontinuation of the subscription itself, suspension of your privileges as a user, and enforcement of LastPass' rights under law and equity.

Responsibility of Website Visitors.

LastPass has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to the Website, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material's content, use or effects. By operating the Website, LastPass does not represent or imply that it endorses the material there posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. The Website may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. The Website may also contain material that violates the privacy or publicity rights, or infringes the intellectual property and other proprietary rights, of third parties, or the downloading, copying or use of which is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. LastPass disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use by visitors of the Website, or from any downloading by those visitors of content there posted.

Content Posted on Other Websites.

We have not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, made available through the websites and webpages to which links, and that link to LastPass does not have any control over those websites and webpages, and is not responsible for their contents or their use. By linking to a website or webpage, LastPass does not represent or imply that it endorses such website or webpage. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. LastPass disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-LastPass websites and webpages.

Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy.

As LastPass asks others to respect its intellectual property rights, it respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that material located on or linked to by violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify LastPass in accordance with LastPass' Digital Millennium Copyright Act ('DMCA') Policy. LastPass will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. In the case of a visitor who may infringe or repeatedly infringes the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of LastPass or others, LastPass may, in its discretion, terminate or deny access to and use of the Website. In the case of such termination, LastPass will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to LastPass.

Intellectual Property.

This Agreement does not transfer from LastPass to you any LastPass or third party intellectual property, and all right, title and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with LastPass. LastPass,, and all other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with, or the Website are trademarks or registered trademarks of LastPass or LastPass' licensors. Other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with the Website may be the trademarks of other third parties.

LastPass may terminate your access to all or any part of the Website at any time, with or without cause, with or without notice, effective immediately. If you wish to terminate this Agreement or your account (if you have one), you may simply discontinue using the Website. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you have a Services account, such account can only be terminated by LastPass if you materially breach this Agreement and fail to cure such breach within thirty (30) days from LastPass' notice to you thereof; provided that, LastPass can terminate the Website immediately as part of a general shut down of our service. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.

Disclaimer of Warranties.

The Website is provided 'as is'.

Your privacy is critically important to us. LastPass has a few guiding principles:

  • We don't allow you to send LastPass critically important information like your usernames, passwords, account notes, and LastPass master password; instead your LastPass master password is used locally to encrypt the important data that's sent to us so that no one, including LastPass employees ever can access it.
  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services. (For example: If you choose to store login history, we keep login history, if you choose not to, we don't)

LastPass operates several websites including It is LastPass' policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Below is our privacy statement which incorporates these goals:


Website Visitors

Like most website operators, LastPass collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. LastPass' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LastPass' visitors use its website. From time to time, LastPass may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

LastPass also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. LastPass does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to LastPass' websites choose to interact with LastPass in ways that require LastPass to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LastPass gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at to provide a user-name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with LastPass are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LastPass collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with LastPass. LastPass does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Use of personal data

LastPass may collect aggregated statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, LastPass may monitor the most popular website account on the site. LastPass may display this information publicly or provide it to others. In addition, LastPass may use your behavioral data and other data you provide to LastPass to customize advertisements on its site to its users. In this way we try to keep the majority of our services free. However, LastPass does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

LastPass discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LastPass' behalf or to provide services available at LastPass' websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using LastPass' websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LastPass will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LastPass discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when LastPass believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LastPass, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an LastPass website and have supplied your email address, LastPass may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with LastPass and our products. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. LastPass takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. LastPass uses cookies to help LastPass identify and track visitors, their usage of LastPass website, and their website access preferences. LastPass visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using LastPass' websites, with the drawback that certain features of LastPass' websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Statement Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, LastPass may change its Privacy Statement from time to time, and in LastPass' sole discretion. LastPass encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Statement.
