How to Order

If you need to request eligibility, create a UW Groups group with the users you’d like to be eligible and send the groupid in a request to help@uw.edu. This group should be a dedicated group, i.e. its only purpose to track who is eligible for LastPass.

If you are eligible, please refer to https://itconnect.uw.edu/wares/mws/other-it-services-and-help/lastpass/adoption-guide/#enrolling to initiate creation of a LastPass account.

Price

There is currently no billing for this service. The cost is $1.50/month/user, but billing is not yet in place.

When billing is ready, sponsoring units will be contacted to provide budget information.

Service Level Description

Support for LastPass is available on a self-service basis through the LastPass Help Center, https://lastpass.com/support.php.

The LastPass Help Center is easy to use and is fairly comprehensive; however, if you are unable to resolve an issue yourself, send a message to help@uw.edu with details.

Invitations to create users happen within 60 minutes of an eligible user initiating the process.

There is a maximum 2 business day turnaround expected for your initial parent LastPass group. Thereafter, self-service UW Group changes flow to LastPass within 30 minutes.
