Disaster Strikes in the Form of LastPass Rated 2 out of 5 stars
It's a disaster. I wrote down the password for lastpass and stored it in a safe place. Unfortunately, we had a fire. The password reminder doesn't help, because the reminder was the location where I had stored the password!
The recovery is based on something stored on the computer in a particular browser, so that's of no use (Remember the fire?)
So, now, Lastpass says that I have to start over with a NEW account. This is insane.
All of my 50 or so passwords are unique, because I take security seriously, but the impossibility of recovering the password in the event of a disaster makes Lastpass useless.
Please note: I had everything sufficiently backed up that the ONLY THING I LOST was access to lastpass. What a disaster. After the fire, I immediately got a new computer, loaded it up and then couldn't access LastPass, so I had no access to bank accounts, insurance policies, and all kinds of other things exactly when I needed them the most.
Sorry, folks, you flubbed the design on this one.
