Occasionally, you need to share a password with someone. Maybe it’s a shared office-wide password, your family’s Amazon login, or maybe you just want to share a Netflix account with your roommate. Rather than sharing it over email, you can more seamlessly and securely share passwords in just a few clicks with LastPass—and even prevent the person on the receiving end from ever seeing the password itself.
Step 1: Open your LastPass vault and log in
Open up your LastPass vault by clicking the LastPass button in your browser; log in. If you aren’t on a computer with LastPass installed (but you have a LastPass account), you can access your online vault instead.
Step 2: Select the password you want to share
Find the site who’s password you want to share, and click the “Share” link on the right-hand side of the row.
Step 3: Type your friend’s email address in the box at the top of the Share window.
You should use the email address that they use to log into LastPass. You can choose to “share” the password with them, which lets them log in but hides the actual password, or “give” them the password, which allows them to read the password and then use it outside of LastPass if they prefer.
