That said, the email I received announcing Emergency Access in 4.0 gave me false hope. The fact that I cannot add emergency contacts whom I trust, without them first being Last Pass subscribers, fails from my point of view. I should be able to have a spouse / friend / relative / etc be able to get into my account in an emergency (with my approval), without their needing to sign-up...even if it's a very limited access.
I tried to add my wife as my emergency contact, but was told I could not since she wasn't a subscriber and would I like LP to send her an invitation. This feels like marketing / clickbaiting. But if I somehow missed the ability to add her as an approved emergency access contact, without her needing to do anything at the moment, please let me know.
Unfortunately having both users have LastPass accounts is the only way the security model works, because it requires stored public/private keys for passing the encryption keys. Keep in mind that Emergency Access is available for all accounts, so your spouse can create a free account just for this purpose.
