Reply To: Last Pass Password Manager
I think it’s because you’re using LastPass’ feature of sync’ing with LastPass’ servers. It may even be enabled by default. I don’t use LastPass (I use KeePass instead), so I don’t know if it’s an option to turn that feature off. If you’re entrusting your passwords to their program, I guess by extension you trust that they store your passwords encrypted (even if it is on their servers), and can ONLY be decrypted by the information you supply. It’s listed on their site as a free feature, so I’m not sure why you’d want to turn it off, except with the extraordinary requirement of having the encrypted contents only locally (some presumption that all crypto is breakable given enough resources I guess, so needing ultimate sole custody of the data).
