New feature LastPass allows loved ones capture passwords Emergency




LastPass has unveiled a feature that allows loved ones to take over the password database whenever there is an emergency. That way, for example, bills need to be paid if a user is injured or dies.

Users can set the length of time after loved ones have access to the password database. During this period, users can even block access if needed, says LastPass. This allows loved ones in passwords to log in, for example in banks and for example, to pay the mortgage. Those must have an account with LastPass.

It is intended that users turn on the feature and then fill who may have access to the passwords in an emergency. It works because LastPass when activating the function upload an encrypted version of the database and the key only when the user places such access should have. If the waiting period is over, LastPass syncs encrypted database with their account, then they can access. LastPass claims to have no access to the database.

The function is part of LastPass 4.0, which among other things also a part function is for passwords. Version 4.0 also has a new design. There is also an option to continue using the design of version 3.0.
