Password Manager – LastPass Enterprise

LastPass Enterprise is a free-to-use, DoIT supported enterprise password manager that allows faculty, staff, and student-employees to securely store, manage, and share credentials used for university purposes.

Benefits

  • Securely stores, manages, and shares work-related credentials.
  • Integrated with Single Sign On (SSO-NetID login) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA-Duo) for increased security.
  • Eliminates the need to remember multiple passwords (and the vulnerabilities associated with reusing passwords).
  • Works across multiple platforms and devices including Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS.
  • Ability to link your LastPass Enterprise account to a free LastPass Premium account for personal use.

Requirements

  • Must be an active UW–Madison faculty, staff, or student employee to enroll in LastPass Enterprise.
  • Must be enrolled in MFA-Duo.
  • Must install the relevant LastPass browser extensions and/or mobile apps.
  • Usernames for LastPass Enterprise accounts must be in the format of NetID@wisc.edu for provisioning and SSO functionality.
  • Intended for work-related credentials.

Getting started

If you are a NEW LastPass Enterprise user:
  1. To enroll, go to your Wisc Account Admin page and click on LastPass and click on “Enable”.
  2. Follow the instructions in the welcome email (it may take up to an hour to receive) to activate your account.
  3. Download the LastPass browser extension(s) of choice.
  4. Enter your NetID@wisc.edu in the username field and click, “Login”.
  5. You will now be able to access your LassPass Enterprise Vault (where you’ll add the sites and usernames and passwords) via NetID Login (referred to as Federated Login by LastPass/LogMeIn).
If you are an EXISTING LastPass Enterprise user:

You can keep your Master Password login OR choose to convert to NetID login (which eliminates the need for a Master Password).

  1. To start the conversion process, fill out the LastPass Enterprise Login Type Request Form or contact the DoIT Help Desk.
  2. You will receive an email confirming that the conversion has started.
  3. The conversion process may take up to an hour to complete.
If you are a NEW LastPass Premium User:
  • Available to anyone with an active UW–Madison email address (to confirm eligibility) but you must use a personal email account to sign up
  • Intended for use in storing your personal accounts (e.g. banking, shopping, social media sites).
  • Ideal for students, alumni, and LastPass Enterprise eligible employees wanting a robust personal password manager in addition to, or instead of, a work specific LastPass Enterprise account.
  • LastPass Premium Accounts are separate from LastPass Enterprise accounts and are NOT supported by UW–Madison (meaning you need to contact LastPass for support).
  • Sign up for your FREE LastPass Premium account using the UW–Madison Premium Partner link: https://lastpass.com/partnerpremium/uw
