STOP TRACKING MY IP AND LOCATION THIS IS RIDICULOUS I DON'T WANT THIS FEATURE, DIDN'T ASK FOR IT, AND IT INTERFERES WITH THE STEPS I TAKE TO MAINTAIN AND PROTECT MY OWN SECURITY.
TURN THIS SHIT OFF.
Yes, I am actually yelling. I am not pleased about this circus I have to do almost every time I log in now. In addition to Lastpass's extension being broken on Firefox for over a year.
If you didn't know, Lastpass is now tracking login IPs, general geographic locations, and details about the browser that you use to login to the service with. If they "don't recognize" any of those details, they will prevent you from logging in to your account until you log in to your email to click on a link. This is a form of multi factor authentication. Coincidentally, since the silicon valley groupthink thinks this "feature" is a good idea, your email provider will also "not recognize" your device/IP/locations/what-have-you, and you'll be chasing your tail for who knows how long trying to do whatever it was that you were trying to do before you were derailed by nosey soyboy coders. Adding insult to injury, if you also use GMail, their forced multi-factor authentication mechanism will probably fail, and they you will be SOL.
I take several steps to secure my own stuff and silicon valley's groupthink is merely a stick in my bicycle wheel.
These mechanisms and problems are usually activated by using a VPN, NoScript, and other commonly available tools and techniques to protect your privacy and security. Yes, the bad guys use them too. However, I'm not a bad guy, so STAHP THROWING STICKS IN MY BICYCLE WHEELS JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.
