KeePass and LastPass do not store your account master access codes online for added security. This is an additional security feature that also ensures no one can give you your code if you forget it.

LastPass will automatically set up your master password once you sign up. LastPass provides several options to reset your master password if you lose or forget it. These include an SMS recovery account, Android Face ID, Touch ID, Touch ID, or a one time recovery password.
