This is the DUMBEST most overzealous, ridiculous piece of security EVER?
LastPass does not recognise the device AFTER I have entered the correct username and MASTER password! What does LastPass do.. it sends me a fucking email!
I can’t get into my emails you drop kicks. I have over 50 email accounts, which is WHY I want access to my passwords, so I can get into my emails.
6 years later (2022) it is STILL happening. Attempted to use LastPass to login to a website, entered my correct username and password and LastPass responds with:
DEVICE NOT RECOGNISED and tells me to check my emails. Why can’t LastPass TXT me?
Read on you will see LastPass introduced LastPass Authenticator but its still sending me EMAILS. What do I have to do to get LastPass to TXT me?
LastPass bangs on about Verifying My Device: due to a ‘security precaution’ FUCK OFF! Forget 30 days,
So, sick and tired of the BS I decide to allow my mobile device. I then login and what does LastPass now want.. LastPass Authentication code!
I enter the LPAC and Login failed: Multifactor authentication failed!
THE BULLSHIT LASTPASS STORY
2016 the story begins..
If LastPass has to go that extra one step then why not TXT me.. for fuck sake.
This is the second time this has happened.. the first I posted about below.
Many of you would know I use LastPass software to manage my login passwords. One of it’s best features is password management across multiple devices like PC’s, TV, Tablets and Mobile Phones.
Last Saturday I knew I was spending the day at a water park. I was taking my ipad so I could continue working during the day.
The night before, I checked my ISP connection and LastPass access. All good, or so I thought.
On arriving at the park, I tried logging into my admin management console.
Sure enough, LastPass required me to login. I had made sure I knew the email address and password (Super Admin) for my LastPass account.
Success: You have logged in BUT the login to your LastPass account is from a device or location that we did not recognize.
WTF = I logged in with this iPad last night, why are you saying this to me?
Then comes the unbelievable message: Please check your email to grant access from this device.
This would be the singular most dumb thing I have ever read.
I need my passwords to access my emails.
Frankly.. I’m f****d.
On arriving back to the office that evening and an entire day’s work lost, I found this email..
LastPass Verification Email
Someone, hopefully you, recently tried to login to your LastPass account from a device or location that we did not recognize.
We prevented access until you have reviewed the details of the login attempt:
Account: *email address*
Time Friday, February 26, 2016 at 7:29 PM EST
IP Address *.***.***.***
If this was you, please verify this new location or device by clicking here:
Verify My New Location
Or, copying the following URL and pasting it into your browser:
If this was you, but you’re having trouble logging into your account, please try the steps listed here: Help, I’m having trouble logging into my account!
If you do not recognize this login attempt, someone may be trying to access your account. Please carefully follow our recommendations here: Help, someone is trying to hack into my account!
TXT me with a access code!
END OF STORY!
LastPass = Pass
Two weeks after airing my frustration with LastPass validation, they wrote to me with a fix… hooray
INTRODUCING LASTPASS AUTHENTICATOR!
ONLY TROUBLE IS = ITS ONLY ANY GOOD “AFTER” YOU LOGIN
Two-factor authentication goes beyond passwords to add another layer of protection to your account. Now with LastPass Authenticator, it’s easier than ever to use two-factor authentication and boost your security!
Get the app free for a one-tap login to LastPass or pair it with other supported sites like Facebook, Dropbox, WordPress and more.

Why haven’t I left?
I have always been a “better the devil you know kind of guy”.
I’d rather vent my frustration here! Beside this one issue, the software is VERY good
