How can I get LastPass to auto logout when I close my browser, or when I am idle?

If you are logged into the LastPass website and you don't have the plug-in installed, your session is over when you close the browser. If you have the plugin installed, by default LastPass keeps you logged in to the browser plugin for two weeks.

There are two settings that can change this default behavior:
  1. Automatically logoff when browsers are closed*: go to your LastPass Icon > Preferences > General and check the box for 'Automatically Logoff when all browsers are closed'.  
  2. Automatically logoff after idle*: go to your LastPass Icon > Preferences > General and check the box for 'Automatically logoff after idle'. 
  3. Website auto-logoff timeout: Change the time limits in your online account settings, under your LastPass Icon > My LastPass Vault > Account Settings link > General tab.

 *This setting must be enabled individually for each browser plugin

 

If you use LastPass for Applications and 'Share login state between browsers' is enabled, your browsers will automatically share the login state with LastPass for Applications. Either, disable 'Share login state between browsers' or enable automatic logoff in LastPass for Applications. By default, LastPass for Applications starts when your computer starts and will maintain its login state from the last session. To disable this default behavior, go to LastPass for Application's Preferences, to enable automatic logoff. 

If LastPass doesn't seem to be respecting the autologoff settings, check your cookie settings. Cookies must be enabled for LastPass in order for your browser to remember your preferences.
