Mac app abandoned ?

Postby godzila » Wed Jan 29, 2020 3:39 am


Just read you mail notice that you are apparently giving up on your Mac application. Did I get that correctly ? The linked 9to5 article does, to the best of my understanding, pertain to the issue at hand (it is about Safari Extensions, not standalone apps).

Would you care to clarify ?

Dropping the quick search in macOS really sucks.
Open browser > Click extension > Search > Copy.. thats too many steps when you need a password for something other then a website

I very much agree, I use the mac app all the time and it's SO much faster than having to go through a browser to get what I want. Very disappointed to hear this.

Same here, it's also not easy managing and maintaining browser addons companywide...

When I follow the directions as set out in the email, it is asking me to drag an older version to replace the one already in the Applications Folder. Why would I want an older version? I used the free version for years and several years ago upgraded to the Premium version. I am not very tech savvy can someone please advise? Do I want an older version? What gives.

How is this going to affect Safari users? They just moved users of the Safari browser-only plugin over to the standalone Mac client. When they discontinue the MacOS client, how is Safari integration supposed to work?

Btw, I haven't received any word from LP yet. Could someone maybe post the original wording from said mail?

Sorry for the confusion, we are just changing where you get the LastPass Mac App from.

To get the latest LastPass Mac App, please follow these instructions: 

1. Download the updated app from
2. Scroll to find LastPass Mac App 
3. Click the Download button and follow the instructions 
4. This new version will replace your existing app

We know LastPass Mac App users love the keyboard shortcuts, and those are still available. We know a popular one is being able to search your vault using a keyboard shortcut. After you've installed and logged in to your new Mac App go to Preferences > HotKeys > SiteSearch.

I, as many others have, received the email about the new way of downloading LastPass Mac or for IOS as of the end of February. The problem is that the email was not at all clear. I even thought that it might be a phishing attempt and I made sure that I didn't click on any links.

@glennd, would the new Mac version update itself (apart from the Mac app store)?
