Password protected PDF attachments within Gmail

Postby Corydon76 » Thu Feb 16, 2017 10:21 am

I've found what is an irritant with Lastpass in Gmail. When I open a password-protected PDF in Gmail, of course Gmail prompts me to enter a password. Upon doing so, Lastpass prompts me about which Google password I want to update. The answer, of course, is none, or my next login to Gmail would fail.

So, in other words, LastPass should recognize when a password is being entered to open a PDF and either a) offer to store the password in a separate section, or b) refuse to update the Gmail password, as the password for a document is not generally concurrent with the password to the site.

I have the exact same problem. LastPass should not interpret the password for an attached PDF as a password for GMail itself. It is inconvenient to be constantly interrupted by the change password prompt. Corydon76, did you find a solution?

This is so annoying. It just auto-updated my password, usually I can close the last pass prompt, but this time it only prompted after I pressed the enter key, however, evidently that was native system side lag. So now LastPass is using a random PDF password for one of my google accounts.

Annoying as hell. As someone who uses password protected pdf's frequently, this will force me to stop recommending LastPass to people in the office environment without the caveat of:

"its great, except it randomly changes your google password sometimes."

As it is doing, because of this problem which is now over a year old :/
