  • To set up LastPass Families, you’ll first need to sign up for the 30-day trial offer or purchase a subscription for $48 annually. 
  • When you set up a LastPass Families account, you and five other additional users are granted all the features of LastPass Premium. 
  • LastPass offers Families account holders a “tour of the site” when they first subscribe, walking you through how to add new members.

Like many subscription services, the more, the merrier is a rule of thumb, at least as far as per-person pricing is concerned.

LastPass, a company that provides free or premium password management, sticks to this motto through its family plan, LastPass Families. The group tier allows you to expand premium-level password and data protection to six users.

LastPass Families comes with all the features of LastPass Premium, in addition to unlimited shared folders between account holders, a Family Manager dashboard, and emergency access, which allows you to grant a trusted contact your account permissions. You’ll also have access to advanced multi-factor authentication for an added layer of security and VIP customer service support.

All of this for the low price tag of $48 annually — only twice as much as LastPass Premium will run a single user for a year. If you think you want better password and data protection for your family, here’s how you can sign up for LastPass Families and add members to the plan.
