How to save secure notes on LastPass

If you want to use LastPass as secure storage, you can store information and attachments on the app. LastPass encrypts all data you save on the app on its vault, so you can rest easy knowing that your files on the app are secure.

You can add notes on LastPass whether you’re using the web or mobile app. We’ll cover both app versions in our quick tutorials below.
