Can someone please explain how to get Lastpass to run in Tor, I need on occasions to access some sites that I have passwords which are impossible to remember.

    What have you tried? How did it not work for you? Its a browser plugin, so you install it in the tor browser bundle (all though i would not recommend it). Mozilla sync can also be used. Or a program like keepass / keepassx. I use keepass and keep the database for my self. Or mozilla sync set up on my own server. – IAmNoone Aug 10 '14 at 21:00
  • I have installed the plugin, but nothing happens when I enter the master password. – evilc Aug 11 '14 at 22:07
  • While there are some concern and discussion over security issues on using LastPass over Tor Browser Bundle, it is possible to disable Tor Access authentication as a reasonable compromise (at least in my case) between security and convenience. – harayz Aug 8 '15 at 13:43

Great Question!

Usually what works for me is opening LastPass in a different browser and simply copying/pasting the passwords I need.

For example, I'll have my Tor window up, but at the same time, I'll open up a Chrome window with the LastPass extension. Then, I'll just copy and paste each password I need from the Chrome window to the Tor window. It works like a charm.

I hope this helps!

    Not really an answer to "How to run Lastpass through Tor" but I'm upvoting it because I believe that this is a better alternative than actually running Lastpass through Tor. – Jobiwan Sep 26 '14 at 16:02
  • This is a pretty bad solution. If you have a clipboard manager that stores the last 100 clips then your password will end up on disk in plain text, and if you backup your computer, it will end up in your backup where it might be difficult to delete and very easy to overlook the problem. – d-b Apr 3 '20 at 23:39
  • And even if you don't use a clipboard manager you might, by mistake backup your regular clipboard content to your backup. – d-b Apr 3 '20 at 23:40

I'd heard that if you have other programs like browsers that communicate with the web open at the same time, then these might be ‘leaky’ and possibly divulge information about your system, not sure if it's location, or something else?

Because of this, I copy & paste the details into notepad; then close the browsers & cloud sync program or anything that's still regularly communicating with the net; in addition, I use a VPN. Don't know if I need to take other security precautions.

This might sound like overkill, but as I'm not too knowledgeable about these things, I didn't want to take that chance. Personally, I'd love to be able to use LastPass on Tor!



In the top menu, select Tools -> Add-ons to get to Add-ons manager.

Search for 'Lastpass' in the searchbox in top right corner, it takes you to Firefox Lastpass Add-on page. Click Add to Firefox button and Lastpass will be installed as add-on to your Tor browser.

Though I need to mention, question about anonymity is still open: LastPass + Tor = Anonymous?
