Security email - what is it?


I've spent most of the afternoon trying to recover my Last Pass master password.  I requested a reset and I received an email with this content:


"LastPass forgotten email password.  We received a request to perform a secure operation for your LastPass account.

Check your 'Security Email' account to view the security notification."


I am pretty well versed in all things internet but I have never heard of the term "Security Email".  I looked it up on google and the term does not appear.


Any advice?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Willinmarin, thank you for your question.


Some users choose to set up a Security email that is different than their LastPass account email to which security notifications can be sent. For more information on security emails, please visit:


If your account has a security email, account verification emails will be sent there.
