This document takes you through configuring your LastPass Free, Premium, or Enterprise account to use Duo Push. You'll sign up for a Duo account, set up LastPass to use your new Duo account, and enroll your LastPass username and your device for use with Duo's service.
Once you complete this process, Duo Security’s two-factor authentication platform protects access to your LastPass data by requiring approval when logging in to your LastPass Vault.
This application communicates with Duo's service on TCP port 443. Firewall configurations that restrict outbound access to Duo's service with rules using destination IP addresses or IP address ranges aren't recommended, since these may change over time to maintain our service's high availability. If your organization requires IP-based rules, please review this Duo KB article.
The security of your Duo application is tied to the security of your secret key (skey). Secure it as you would any sensitive credential. Don't share it with unauthorized individuals or email it to anyone under any circumstances!
If you followed a Duo sign-up link from the LastPass site then we'll automatically create a LastPass application for you!
The new Universal Prompt provides a simplified and accessible Duo login experience for web-based applications, offering a redesigned visual interface with security and usability enhancements.
|Universal Prompt||Traditional Prompt|
Read the Universal Prompt Update Guide for more information about the update process and the new login experience for users.
Migration to Universal Prompt for your LastPass application is a two-step process:
LogMeIn needs to update LastPass to support the Universal Prompt, but the update isn't available yet. The "Universal Prompt" section reflects this status as "Waiting on App Provider" with the activation options inaccessible. Please contact LogMeIn to request Duo Universal Prompt support for LastPass.
In the meantime, you can use Duo with LastPass and the traditional prompt experience.
After LogMeIn makes the necessary changes available you may need log in to LastPass as an admin to enable Duo Universal Prompt support.
You'll later return to the settings on this page to activate the Universal Prompt for your LastPass users after LogMeIn releases the update.
Click the See Update Progress link to view the Universal Prompt Update Progress report. This report shows the update availability and migration progress for all your Duo applications in-scope for Universal Prompt support. You can also activate the new prompt experience for multiple supported applications from the report page instead of visiting the individual details pages for each application.
Once logged in to LastPass go to Account Settings → Multifactor Options.
Click the pencil icon to the right of the Duo Security multifactor option.
Configure the Duo Security options as follows:

|Use Duo Web SDK when possible||The default setting (No) means that all types of clients see the same LastPass Duo prompt. If you'd like to enable the interactive authentication prompt for web browser logins to LastPass, change this setting to Yes.|
|Integration Key||Copy and paste in the integration key from the LastPass application you created earlier in the Duo Admin Panel.|
|Secret Key||Copy and paste in the secret key from the LastPass application you created earlier in the Duo Admin Panel.|

LastPass administrators can see which users have enabled Duo multifactor from the "Users" page in the LastPass administrator console. Users who have completed Duo Security setup show the Duo logo in the "Multi-factor" column.
The Duo multifactor login experience for LastPass Enterprise users is the same as for Lastpass Free/Premium users if you did not enable the Duo Web SDK policy.
After completing multifactor setup, users see the Duo authentication prompt when they log in to LastPass. Users can approve a Duo Push authentication request from a smartphone or tablet, approve authentication over the phone, or enter a passcode generated via the Duo Mobile app, text message, or hardware token.
If you did enable the Duo Web SDK policy for your organization, browser logons to LastPass show the interactive Duo prompt, while mobile app logins continue to show the original LastPass multifactor prompt.
When your LastPass Enterprise users view their multifactor options for Duo, the setting shows as enforced by company policy.
