I have not been able to figure out how to get auto-logoff timeout to work.
My most recent test was: I set the timeout in the control panel to 30 min, and the web timeout to 30min just to be sure. Then I shut down my PC, and went away for the whole day. And this was a power down, not a standby or hibernate.
When I came back that evening, powered on and opened up the browswer again, lastpass was logged in!
Something didn't stick. Is there a save settings or something?
We have 3 features around this today:
- An idle timeout in the plugin (which won't work if you shutdown the PC, or are not running the browser)
- Autologout on browser close (which only works if you close the browser)
- A LastPass.com website autologout (which only works if you're on the LastPass website and the PC is running)
It sounds like what you're expecting is to have your session killed after 30 mins no matter what -- which is somewhat problematic because we only communicate with the server rarely so it would only give you 30 minutes period ... This might be okay if we had a 'repeat after logging back in function' but until we do this would hurt (you'd go to save a site, it wouldn't save and the plugin would only then recognize that you're logged out...).
For now please use Auto-logout on browser close and we'll look into a way to kill the session (but only for the automatic login from browser startup after a certain period), and the 'repeat after logging back in' functionality.
