Frequently Asked Questions

LastPass Enterprise is for only work accounts. For repsonal accounts/passwords, use LastPass Premium.

No one at Stony Brook University, or LastPass, can ever see your passwords. However, due to the Enterprise nature of this offering, passwords can be reassigned to other staff in the event of your departure. Reassignment requires deactivation of your LastPass Enterprise account.

During enrollment, LastPass will prompt you to convert the existing account to an Enterprise managed one, or to create a new account entirely.

LastPass Families is available free of charge for personal use if you have a Stony Brook LastPass Enterprise account. You and up to five additional users can receive personal LastPass accounts for free, which are entirely maintained and supported by LastPass. These accounts are separate entity from your Stony Brook LastPass account, and support is provided by LastPass.

To activate the LastPass Families benefit, log in and navigate to Account Benefits.

No, it is far and away an enhancement to security. Your passwords are encrypted locally on your computer before they ever leave it, so neither LastPass nor Stony Brook have access to your passwords in human readable form, or any form which can be made human readable.

The primary benefit of using LastPass is the ability to use unique, randomly generated, passwords on each service. Using the same password, or many variants of one password, is a serious security issue in today's landscape. Using unique passwords for each service is great security practice because if one service experiences a breach, you need not change dozens of other passwords. Users taking full advantage of LastPass don't even know their own passwords to these services, as LastPass stores and auto-fills them.

Additionally, LastPass Enterprise (and even the personal Premium version) is protected by Duo Two-Step Login, so even if your LastPass password is compromised, an attacker will still not be able to access your passwords.
