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?
