Enter different part of password each time

Postby fgf » Mon Oct 20, 2008 3:28 pm

Bank of Bermuda asks you to enter only 3 characters from your password, but a different three each time (e.g., the second, fifth and last characters or the first, third and seventh). In Roboform I'm able to post the full password as a note to the record and simply select "edit" and then manually enter the requested three characters. Is there a similar straightforward workaround in LastPass?

Many thanks for a generally seamless online product. Any news from the Google team about a Chrome addon for LastPass?

Thanks, Frank

PS: The problem is exacertated by the fact that it's a 2-step login... you enter a username on the first page and on the second you enter the answer to a question plus the 3 password characters.

HSBC bank does that too and I installed a script to handle it inside firefox. I'm pretty sure there is no fix for it via lastpass.

I also notice that sites which separate credit card numbers into 4 sets of 4 charactor boxes does not work with lastpass. It always tries to put all 12 characters into the last box.

I use first direct bank ie. HSBC
The three characters from my password got stored as Forms.
I blanked the Forms ( EDIT then click on the Forms button), and enter them manually.
The answer to set question got stored as password.
It sort of works ...
