LastPass Master Password in Mac Keychain

Postby jgb » Wed Aug 26, 2009 3:38 pm

I would like to store the LastPass Master Password in the Mac's Logon Keychain. Currently checking Remember Password seems to store it in a cookie, which makes me nervous.

This is how we've done it on the Safari application which is soon to be released and we'll look into adding it for Firefox too.

We don't recommend you checking Remember Password -- we have a different means of keeping you logged in without using it that allows you to remotely kill your session if say your computer was stolen; this is done by using 2 pieces of data one from your PC, the other downloaded when you start up from your LastPass.com session. If you logout it's not on your PC at all (in contrast with your keychain data...)
