Please note:

  • You must be running the binary component: LastPass Icon > Tools > About  - Binary Component: True
  • Saving in Firefox offers the best basic authentication support
  • **Linux/Chrome can only fill behind the scenes when launching directly from the Vault
  • ***Requires Wine or equivalent to run browser on this platform
  • Opera 15+ will show the same behaviors as Chrome. Earlier Opera versions do not fill or save.
  • Basic authentication for Mac OS X requires that you enable access for assistive devices (make sure you 'unlock' the lock to make changes in your Mac preferences):
  • In OS X  10.7 or less by going to Apple > System Preferences > Universal Access and checking "Enable access for assistive devices". 
  • In OS X 10.8 by going to Apple > System Preferences > Accessibility > and check "Enable access for assistive devices"
  • In OS X 10.9 + by going to Apple > System Preferences > Security & Privacy and making sure any of the following that appear are checked under "Allow the apps below to control your computer":
    • Chromium
    • Google Chrome
    • Google Chrome Canary
