LastPass currently only supports Firefox and Internet Explorer. The Safari version is on its way while the Google Chrome version is not available till Google released the extension API. LastPass works in Windows, Mac and Linux. What other ways do you use to sync your password across various browsers and devices? For Safari on iOS, you can fill in user credentials on a website by tapping the Share icon (box with an up arrow coming out of it at the bottom of the screen), tapping LastPass (and authenticating with your fingerprint), then tapping on the vault entry for that website.

How do I install and log in to the LastPass for Safari app extension on my Mac?

The Safari app extension is supported on macOS 10.12 (Sierra) or later. Please note that the Safari Legacy extension will continue to function on Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) or earlier, however, that extension will no longer receive updates due to Apple restrictions.

  1. Download the LastPass for Safari app extension.
  2. Locate the download, then double-click on the LastPass.dmg file to open.
  3. Click and drag the LastPass app icon to the Applications folder. If you had installed a previous version of the Safari app extension and are prompted that the LastPass.app already exists in the Applications folder, click Replace.

Follow the prompts to authenticate, which will vary depending on how multifactor authentication is configured for your account (e.g., facial recognition/fingerprint identification, push notification, time-based passcode, SMS passcode, voice call, etc.).
    Note: You can also click Additional Multifactor Options (on computer) or tap Use Alternate Multifactor (on mobile) to choose a different method (unless you are part of a company account that has disabled this option). If desired, you can also enable the setting to trust the device for 30 days (unless this option is disabled by your LastPass administrator).
  7. When prompted, click Open Safari to enable the LastPass for Safari extension. If this prompt is dismissed without enabling, you can manually enable the Safari extension:
    1. In the Menu Bar, go to Safari > Preferences.
