I'm a bit baffled by the options in Lastpass for timing out a sessions. The first one seems obvious. Log off LastPass when browsers close. Got it. I close Firefox and when I start it again (even if it's immediately), LastPass is logged off. Perfect.
The other setting is the one that's bugging me. If I set the "Automatically Log out after idle (mins)" to some value and turn it on it doesn't work the way I would expect it to.
Here are the two tests I did:
Set timeout to 1 minute
Wait, not doing anything in Firefox
LastPass times out and logs off.
That's exactly what I would expect to have happen.
Here's where things don't make sense:
Set timeout to 2 minutes
Wait 4 minutes
Start Firefox, still logged in.
Shouldn't it have logged out since it had been more than two minutes?
Even more annoying is that if I reboot the computer while LastPass is logged in, it's still logged in, even the next day!
So my options are to have LastPass log out every time I close Firefox or basically have it never log out. Option 1 is annoying and option 2 is dangerous.
Why can't the "Automatically Log out after idle (mins)" work based on time since it was last used, not the last time I moved the mouse in Firefox?
