Ability to generate a password QR Code from LastPass

Postby lzimmermann670 » Wed Dec 05, 2018 10:16 am

When I set up a new device e.g. a phone I need to initially enter my google password to enter the play store and install LastPass. My google password is very strong and stored in LastPass.
To make it easier to enter this password it would be great if it was possible to generate a QR code from (trusted) LastPass app and scan it from the device .

QR code is neat, but LastPass may not want to implement this, because many QR code scanning apps are insecure, or even outright send your scanned code to their servers.

Yes, that is exactly why I want it to be implemented by LastPass. Transferring the first secure password to a new device is very unhandy right now. maybe there is another, alternative way?

The problem is not just with the generation, but with scanning.
How are you going to scan the code before you install LastPass on your new phone? Another (probably insecure) app?

I almost always can get access to a web browser without signing into a Google account, so I just sign in to the web interface and copy the password over from the edit site dialog.
