LastPass YubiKey and mobile access


Remote Desktop Manager for Mac uses the mobile interface of LastPass to perform its integration.


Within the LastPass options for YubiKey, one may be confusing but may have an impact on the perceived security of your account.  If you decide to turn on the Permit Mobile Device Access setting, the YubiKey code is not required when you go through the mobile interface (, this means that only your master password is needed, which in fact removes the benefits of two-factor authentication.

Remote Desktop Manager for Mac has not means to detect what options are enabled in your LastPass account, therefore it will prompt you for the YubiKey code which may lead you to think that it is validated, but it is simply ignored by LastPass' services.  If you must enable Permit Mobile Device Access for any reason, you should set the two factor mode to None for your entries just as a clear indication that the YubiKey code is not required.


LastPass has a security feature to Restrict Mobile Devices that are using the mobile interface, we recommend strongly that you turn on the restrictive mode and authorize devices on a case by case basis.  We have added the required features to identify your Remote Desktop Manager for Mac instance as a mobile device.


Please consult current LastPass documentation for the concepts presented above.
