LastPass is a popular online password manager that saves all the passwords, card details, and other security access of the user. LastPass provides secured storage to the important credentials and autofill in the required field while the user is surfing on the internet. It uses bank-grade 256 AES encryption which provides a high-security wall to the passwords of the user with a zero-knowledge policy. Due to its high-security standard, it is way too difficult to import the database from the LastPass account. It becomes more annoying when the user forgets its LastPass password and loses access to all the credentials stored in it. This guide will tell you how to delete the LastPass account permanently.
There is no option of database import in the LastPass account automatically, it has to be done manually. This means if the user had stored data in other password managing applications, LastPass will not be able to import it on its own. Rather each entry has to be made manually but the user. This could be a lengthy processing case of a large database.
Another drawback of this well-known password manager is that there is no live support. Although passwords are the most sensitive information of a user. LastPass does not provide any live assistance in the case of data loss.
Recently the company announced that LastPass Free will only include access on unlimited devices of one type. So if you’re a LastPass free user, you will be able to access your passwords on your PC or on your Phone. You won’t be able to use or sync both.
This may annoy the users and lead them to remove their account from LastPass permanently.
