Log in - security

Postby nugaman » Thu May 01, 2014 2:35 pm

I'm new to LastPass, have 12 sites installed that work but I seem to have no log-in security. I'm Win 7 using Firefox and have a LastPass Vault icon shortcut on my desktop and a small LastPass icon showing when I load Firefox. The problem is that when I click either the desktop icon or the icon in Firefox there is no request for the master password. LastPass loads and I can then proceed to sites. Anyone using my computer could do the same and open anything in the vault. Am I missing something here? Aren't I supposed to be challenged to enter my e-mail address and master password to enter the vault?

Did you by any chance click "Remember my Master Password" when originally logging in?

You can either manually log off when not using the extension, or set a automatic logout time.

Thanks. Don't know if I hit "remember my password". Looked for way to go back to that screen, no luck.

Not sure I know how to do log off. I shut down Firefox by clicking the upper right "X", but LastPass red icon is there when I log on to Firefox again. Auto log off settings in LastPass "Preferences - General - Security" aren't checked but I checked "auto log off when browsers are closed for 0 min", nothing happened after I closed the browser and opened it again.
When I open Firefox it automatically goes to the Google screen. Could that have anything to do with it?

Again, thanks for your help.

To log off LP: LP icon at very bottom. then LP icon again will produce Master Log in. Uncheck "Remember Password" and log-in.
