How does end encryption work when using lastpass website to get passwords? with the browser extension i can imagine that but how/where is encryption key formed in case when we try to log in to the lastpass website, how is the vault decrypted there ?

If i understand correctly the our password vault is stored encrypted on the servers and only our master password can be used to form the decryption key, if i am correct it was written that the master password is not sent to the server and is computed for decryption/encryption key on the device.

Encryption is performed the exact same way as the browser extensions, except it's all JavaScript in the browser window.
