LastPass support ends 9/23/23. Switch to 1Password now.

1Password has replaced LastPass as Harvard’s recommended password manager. Harvard’s contract with LastPass ends on 9/23/23. If you have not already switched, please do so before 9/23/23. Using industry-leading security, 1Password organizes all of your passwords in one secure, central location.

What do I need to do?

All active faculty and staff are eligible for a 1Password Business account which also entitles you to a free 1Password Families membership to share with your family members.

If you’d like to transfer your LastPass passwords to 1Password, follow these instructions:

  1. Create a 1Password Business account and activate your Family account.
  2. Transfer your LastPass data to your 1Password Family account. We recommend that you keep all personal passwords in your Family account.
  3. Once you have confirmed that your LastPass passwords have successfully transferred to your 1Password Family account, you may safely delete them from your LastPass account.

If you keep your Harvard-provided LastPass account, your ability to renew your LastPass Premium account will end on September 23, 2023, and your account will automatically transition to a Free account. You can export your passwords and choose another password management service or provide payment to renew your LastPass Premium account.

If you also have a LastPass Enterprise account, please expect to hear from your local administrator or school security officer in the next few weeks about steps to transition your Enterprise account.
