Make it easier to refresh

Postby spockdude » Mon Oct 01, 2018 1:20 pm

When you're sharing logins with a team, LastPass is super slow at syncing. So, most of the time after someone else on the team has changed a password, you have to go to Menu > more options > advanced > refresh before password changes work. Why is this so hidden?

Doesn't anyone else use shared passwords in LastPass? I guess LastPass is mostly focusing on single/home users? Seems strange to me since it's us corporate users that actually pay for a license that you wouldn't make the refresh super accessible. Unless you making syncing instant, the refresh feature should not be so hidden.

Yes! This is incredibly annoying and is hampering adoption at my org (and discouraging people from changing existing low-security passwords to auto-generated replacements). Can someone from LP comment on this? @chantieLP @anatoly_LP

Agreed, this should be a high priority. Especially for those who utilize LastPass as an Enterprise.

Imagine having to explain to a group of Lawyers that they need to manually refresh in order to log into a website? Annoying

Even for a home user, it means that when you change a password in one browser on one machine you have to manually refresh every browser on ever device you own if need to use that password again (which is very common if you are changing to more secure passwords that are impossible to remember).

I expected the page to auto-refresh, so I don't consider it a feature, just a given nowadays for webapps. I can't even find the workaround the OP mentioned—is there not a refresh button anymore? I agree this should be corrected as quickly as possible, especially when using the LastPass CLI requires refreshing the page quite often for testing. When paying Enterprise prices, I would hope these use cases are considered and given the proper attention.

Same here, this has been plaguing my organization for a couple of years now.

Agreed, this is a pain for the Android app as well. First, a refresh button should be either prominently displayed on the first screen or at the very least on the top level menu. It took me a while to even find it. Also there is no indication that the vault is actually refreshed after you click "Refresh vault". I waited for a full minute for some indication that the vault refresh had completed before I realized that the joke was on me.

Let me add my voice to this.
As an enterprise user we are trying use lastpass to store server credentials and need these shared across the team.
Having to wait minutes for passwords to show up slows down our workflow.

Please add a refresh button from the browser extension.

For example, I should be able to click on the Chrome extension, and then click a refresh button.

It is inefficient to have to navigate 3 menu windows to refresh.

Other password solutions have this functionality and hoping that LastPass will too.

Folks - I want to highly support the need to correct this. I work in IT and frequently switch between different browsers. I can't tell you how many times I might have different browsers up and change a password which updates in one browser, but when I use the other browser I get password incorrect errors and often have to reset my password due to unknowns of what is current. Given the api availability and similar services which dynamically refresh without prompting it is shocking this has not been fixed. I've been with LastPass for many years and love the product - use it daily, but *PLEASE* fix this!
