Using LastPass to Share Log In Credentials

How to use LastPass to Share Log In Credentials With Us, While Keeping Your Information Safe

When working with us we will need access to various accounts to collect statements and connect feeds in Xero. These feeds periodically reset, so to avoid bothering our clients on a monthly basis to reconnect these necessary feeds we will also need to be able to view the password. If your passwords are personal we recommend using LastPass to generate random secure passwords and use these to reset the passwords of your online accounts.
  • Below is a video explaining how to share passwords with us via LastPass
  • Please also take a look at the two sections More info about sharing folders and Sharing individual passwords below this video to ensure that the correct share settings are chosen
    • Share your passwords with myteam@accountingprose.com
    • Be sure to click Allow Recipient to View Password
    • If there are any security questions and answers for the account, please include that info in the note field of the LastPass entry



More Info About Sharing folders

If you create a shared folder in LastPass you will be presented with this dialogue box explaining how the share works. In the next step we will show you how to grant us Read Only access so we will not be able to change the items you see in this folder.

    Sharing Individual Passwords

    Another way to share passwords with us is to choose all of the passwords individually and then share them.
    This also creates a Read Only share so we will be unable to affect your password entries within your LastPass account.
