Only generated passwords that are saved to the vault are archived. Passwords which have not replaced an existing password, or assigned attributes are saved as a generic site entry. You can find them by searching for the term "generated" in your vault, or sorting by most recent items.

This has stopped working properly. After clicking the "Use Password" button and auto-filling the registration form Lastpass does not ask to save the website and does not save the password as "Generated" in the vault. I'm using Chrome with Zonealarm and AdBlock - is it possible one of these is interfering with Lastpass operation. Certainly this problem is new for me within the last few weeks.

I have the same issue as alanw613.
1. Open the Generate Secure Password dialog
2. Click Use Password
3. Window closes and the password is NOT saved in the vault

The only way i can now generate new passwords is by clicking Copy Password, pasting it to notepad, then manually editing the site entry.

I've had this happen multiple times in the past week. "Generate and fill" button just generates a password, fills it, then forgets it! Lastpass doesn't offer to save the site, and the password is lost forever.

LP used to at the very least save every generated password whether you told it to save or not, so you could fix the issue if you misclicked or LP malfunctioned. Now I can't even fall back onto that.

This is a problem that is still not fixed in 2017. Looking for a better password keeper.

I am having the exact same problem as all the above people. Please resolve this as soon as possible since it is a huge hassle.

I using Chrome and have an ad-blocker (Ublock Origin), so perhaps that is the problem. The problem mentioned above only appeared recently. The Use Password button used to work correctly and no other software changes were made. I think the latest update of LastPass is to blame. Please fix this!

This just happened to me today. Had to go through a Forgot Password setup because Lastpass didn't store the generated password.
