There is no bank that will send emails with links to log into your bank account - ever! Why? Because we all get very high quality fake phishing emails daily pretending to come from our bank and suggesting to us to use the embedded link to log into our account.... And you know this is part of the billion dollar hacking fraud that is going on globally as you will be sent to an attackers lookalike website where you then inevitably hand over your bank password.
I checked several of my bank and credit card emails and every single one of them had embedded links that led directly to a login page. These are major institutions too, not small town credit unions. I agree that links like that are a poor security practice, but lots of banks do this, and the links aren't going away anytime soon.
Most people are going to log in to their LastPass account through the extension, or application. For web logins, LastPass at least has an extended validation certificate. In addition, there is an unknown device or location verification by default in addition to any multifactor authentication to protect the account.
