2nd password option for password protected sites in vault

Postby jb1 » Sat May 02, 2009 11:51 am

What I mean is this- when I password-protect a site in my vault, and then attempt to login to that site, it asks for my master password, which is great, but I'd like the option to be prompted to enter a second/different-from-my-master password. Besides the added security, the particular use I have in mind for this is that I have arranged so that in the event of my death, family members will have access to my LastPass account so they can take care of all my online accounts. But maybe I have a few accounts that I want to be off-limits to them... this way, they can access all my stuff, but not those accounts that I choose.

Reminds me of this (humorous, off color): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNPQavXwUf0

Seems like you need a dead man's switch to delete some accounts; this has been one of the more morbid ideas that have been tossed around -- ensuring access in case of forgotten passwords (you'd be shocked how many people forget the last password they have to remember despite the 3x warnings that we don't have the password), and death. Question has always been how do you determine when to release (and would people be willing to pay for such a service).

Haha, that was a pretty funny video (but honestly, I wasn't referring to anything porn-related). I'm signed up with a service called deathswitch.com to send my brother and his wife part of my master LP password (the other half will be written down for them. t's not absolutely necessary that they have access to my LastPass account, it'll just make things much easier for them.). Right now I'm just on the free account, which sends out one email to one recipient, but soon I'll be signing up for the paid version which costs $20/yr. and lets you send out something like 30 messages to 10 recipients. So if you were to offer some sort of similar service I'd definitely be interested, and would certainly consider a paid upgrade for it. I think as sites like deathswitch and Legacy Locker become more well-known, more people will become interested as well.

But anyway, besides the idea of maybe having a couple accounts that I don't want them to access, I think the second/different password option would in general also add another layer of security to LastPass.
