It's provides a way to ensure that any other running session is killed when you login, so that if you login to the website from one PC, then access lastpass from another, the first PC will not have it's session anymore.

If you close the browser, the next time the browser opens, it needs a session to obtain the local key and if that's been destroyed you can't be automatically logged in on browser open.

So this is good if you close down your browsers but forgot to logout of lastpass. It doesn't help you though if you've leaved an open lastpass session logged in -- we've been contemplating doing polling to check your session, but that would cause a good amount of increased load for limited gain (as you could also firewall lastpass.com and we wouldn't know what to do).

This is somewhat nuanced, and we're looking for a better solution here.
