What happens if I forget my Master Password?
It is critical that you remember your Master Password for your personal LastPass account. IT@Sam cannot reset or recover your Master Password, nor can LastPass. To avoid locking yourself out of your account, make sure that you have set your account recovery information..
SHSU Employees who use LastPass Business use their SHSU credentials, and only need to know their personal LastPass Master Password when linking it to their LastPass Business account.
How do I get a LastPass Business account?
Only SHSU employees are eligible for a LastPass Business account. Follow the Tech Tutorial on how to request a LastPass Business account.
How can I access my personal passwords if I am using LastPass Business for work?
