I followed the instructions above and it worked (for now ...)

1. Go to
2. Download the installer
3. Uninstall the current version of LastPass (4.15.2) that refuses to work
4. Restart Safari
5. Open the installer and follow the instructions to install the old version, 4.9.037
6. Restart Safari
7. Uncheck the box in the extensions preferences that says "Automatically update extensions ..."
8. You should now have the old version installed, and it should work as before.

It has taken the LastPass developer far too long to correct this problem. It was identified at least two weeks ago. A reasonable question to ask would be, "Why should I pay for an extension that does not work?"

Submitted a ticket August 7th, 2018 and received this response almost immediately from LastPass. They are aware and are working on it.

"Hi there,
Thank you for reaching out and apologies for any inconvenience.
We did notice inconsistencies with autofilling on Safari which our team is currently investigating and we hope to fix this in our next update for Safari. In the meantime please use the LastPass extension from a different browser to autofill and save new logins. "

The installed extension is identified as Version, which after a Safari restart, seems to function properly. (That is the same extension version I was able to download a couple days ago from the "normal" LastPass download site, which now reflects a download version of 4.15.2 (which does not work).

So, as I outlined in an earlier post, "Uninstall" any currently non-working extension and install the version and seemingly all well be fully functional once again.

THANK YOU! for that link. Removed the 4.15 extension, used your link to download and install the working 4.9 extension and I unchecked the option to automatically update the extension as you previously suggested. Now autofill works again!

But even after my support ticket was "escalated" to "level 2" they just kept telling me that downloading and reverting was not possible and that they are "profusely working hard to fix this." Completely useless support...

I am still investigating alternatives. Keeper does not enable quick search of the vault directly from within the extension, which is something I use A LOT with lastpass, so I may be crossing that off my list. However, it seems to work more consistently across a wider variety of login types, although selecting from a list of different logins for the same site takes several more clicks.

Same problem here. No auto fill on any web sites, even when I go into the extension menu and manually choose "auto fill" there....

Yep, Safari users are being treated as second class and un-important. Nevermind that we want to use a browser that isn't constantly either trying to shill "search" (personal datamining) services to us or secretly send all of our web browsing to our corporate overlords... If we really wanted privacy we wouldn't keep our passwords in an online repository. I guess.

Get the old, stable version here:

Fields not populating for me either, does not make any difference if on a Mac using Safari or Chrome or on a PC using Edge or Chrome. Only difference for me appears to be that it is Sporadic. For example I can have Safari fail on a particular site, bring up Chrome and the site will work. Next time they will both fail

I found a workaround that has worked so far (tested on multiple sites).

Like everyone else, when I load a page with a login form using MacOS safari, the usual symbols in the form fields for last pass don't display and using the autofill command from the last pass button does not work. HOWEVER...

If I hit "command+R" (reload the page), the last pass symbols in the fields magically appear and I can autofill the login. Hopefully this works for others too.

Last pass not working on mac

Postby Stoorsooker » Thu Aug 09, 2018 11:37 pm

Do not know if this is the correct place to post or not. LP not filling in forms on macbook. Contacted help last month, was told they know about it and are working on a fix. They cant give a time for this to happen. Anyone else having this problem as I have contacted them several times and their response was really poor?

Having the same issue. Pretty fundamental to the whole point of using LastPass. May be time has come to look for a different product?

Not sure if that helps and if there is a link with this issue... but I'm using a an AdBlock on Safari... if I disable the Adblock and relaunch the website then LP is displaying the PWD access of LP...
