How can I get LastPass to auto logout when I close my browser, or when I am idle?
By default LastPass keeps you logged in to the browser plugin for two weeks. If you close the LastPass website and you don't have the plug-in installed then your session is over.
There are two settings that can change this default behavior:
- Automatically logoff when browsers are closed*: go to your LastPass Icon > Preferences > General and check the box for 'Automaically Logoff when all browsers are closed'.
- Automatically logoff after idle*: go to your LastPass Icon > Preferences > General and check the box for 'Automatically logoff after idle'.
- 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 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.
