Are you sure this is not a Lastpass setting? Lastpass settings are completely inconsistent, messy and often not working at all (like this setting). From a usability standpoint Lastpass’ settings are an absolute and utterly fail.
I’m using Lastpass myself and only get this warning occasionally and usually once for every website.
You’re absolutely right about “mess” in LP’s Settings menu… But I’m quite sure its not any setting on my side because I get that popup in Brave only & for the same website I don’t get it in Chrome… If it were Settings in LastPass behavior would be the same, right?
It’s the way LastPass treats Brave, at least in my mind. I dunno how to explain it. It’s constant. It shouldn’t be. It’s annoying. That’s why I think this can only be resolved in direct communication between Brave team & LastPass, so that LastPass treats Brave in the same way(manner) as Chrome. As trusted browser app… Without need to constantly approve fill in Brave.
Ironically, Brave = (version of) Chrome = based on Chromium yet LastPass behaves differently in same scenario, triggering unnecessary pop-ups. If it was just once, I’d be satisfied. It’s not. It repeats again & again.
Just my username, which I tap & its filled. No pesky pop-ups before nor after…
Im telling you, LastPass internally maintains a list of “safe” apps. They don’t consider Brave safe. It doesn’t mean that Brave is unsafe, it’s just LastPass’ perspective… Due to the poor maintenance of that trust/distrust list on LastPass side
It’s not any Lastpass setting, its not website specific, its LastPass not treating Brave the same as it treats Chrome. I suppose only LastPass (employees) know WHY.
Phenomenal feedback, @marco. It sounds like you’ve done all of the necessary work to assist us in making an outreach effort. You may very well be correct that LastPass considers Chrome safe, and all other apps less safe. We’ll investigate
Thank you. I really hope they’ll react. I’m 99.99% sure its their fault.
We’re speaking about mobile browser here (Brave), not some casual app where I have to login once in a while. Here I have to login constantly every day and I can’t ignore the fact that LastPass pushes this in front of my face everyday. It’s simply: unnecessary. And: discriminatory (compared to Chrome for Android)…
So, @ LASTPASS - Please, whitelist Brave.
It’s OK if you have a list of trusted/less trusted, your code is proprietary, you have to deal with security & whatnot, but you have to maintain that list.
Or give us, your (LastPass) users power to whitelist apps. In this case: Brave
See the post before this one. It’s not just Chrome (that LastPass treats “better”), it’s Firefox too. But you’re right - LastPass should behave (treat) Brave same as Chrome. Unfortunately, it doesn’t.
As for contacting Lastpass, I did it in the past (I’m experiencing this for months already), waited, and waited and received no reply at all. I admit I didn’t try LastPass community cos I thought emailing support is enough…
I also ignored this for quite some time, thinking “oh well, Brave is new, maybe they need more time” & hoping it’ll be resolved automatically.
New versions of LastPass appeared, “annoyance” stayed… Brave isn’t new anymore and its user base isn’t small anymore.
I’m also aware of my “reach potential”; that I can’t do much, alone. I’m just one voice of reason but that’s obviously not enough when LastPass ignores my request for help. If there were more people saying the same thing - this would have been resolved: yesterday.
I’m also a strong believer of polite company-to-company communication, intended to make something better for the users of both (LP & Brave) “worlds”… -
I appreciate the Tweet that @samson published but I believe that having a clear report on what’s going on here (replicated behavior done by Brave devs) and official email contact between Brave & LP has better potential to solve this for everyone.
LastPass is a great password manager.
Brave is an awesome privacy-focused browser.
If I need my LastPass to “trust” some app and behave properly - my default browser (Brave) is literally № 1 in the list (obviously, because that’s where I use password manager predominantly.)
I honestly hope that LastPass will agree. Maybe in the next LP app update (or even without it, if they do their trust/distrust server-side - which is also what I think because milliseconds before popup LastPass app is launched, probably to do the “check” of target app-app we are trying to put our credentials in then it closes automatically and “Are you sure you trust Brave?” pop-up appears / that’s how I interpret it, and I think I’m right.)
