What LCP measures

LCP measures when the largest content element in the viewport is rendered to the screen. This approximates when the main content of the page is visible to users. See Largest Contentful Paint defined for more details on how LCP is determined.

How Lighthouse determines your LCP score

Browser support for LCP launched in Chrome 77. Lighthouse extracts LCP data from Chrome's tracing tool.

The table below shows how to interpret your LCP score:

LCP time
(in seconds)
0-2.5Green (fast)
2.5-4Orange (moderate)
Over 4Red (slow)

See the Lighthouse performance scoring post to learn how your page's overall performance score is calculated.
