never log out when the app is idle is that ok???

Hello Everyone,

I have set my security settings to
>>>>Never log out when the app is idle<<<< & turned off bio-metrics and set a 8 digit pin so when my screen goes blank on my cell phone & you need to get back into last pas you can just  enter your pin to enter last pass.

 

This way I don't have to put my 15 character master password in every time I want in my last pass on my mobile device.

 

Is there any issue with doing this and never logging out when the app is idle?

I have an android device with android 10

I have been doing what you described for at least a year and I haven't had any issues. I also used Bitdefender to require a PIN when opening the LastPass App. To get to my LastPass App you will need three different PINs. It could be overkill but it does not bother me.

Thank you for the reply!!! Good to know someone else does the same thing. It is much easier to enter an 8 digit pin than my huge master password that is loaded with capitols, characters, ect... I tried using an app lock & locking last pass kind of like what you did with bit defender BUT when it's "unlocked" and I try to go to a site it locks again and of course I need to unlock it again and doing that last pass will not input the password. I think it has something to do with the screen going back to the unlock mode that disrupts the way last pass operates once I removed that and  set my last pass to  never log out when the app is idle, seems to have worked and once I put in my 8 digits, it works really well,

 

 

I  also wonder if you or anyone here knows the difference between lock out and log off last pass..  😁

I am not 100% sure but I think LOCK OUT means you will need to use your PIN again and LOG OUT would mean you need to use your master password to access LastPass. I have "Lock LastPass automatically" and "Lock when screen is turned off" toggled on.

 You said >>>> I think LOCK OUT means you will need to use your PIN again, and LOG OUT would mean you need to use your master password to access LastPass. I have "Lock LastPass automatically" and "Lock when screen is turned off" toggled on.<<< that seems about right  yup!  I have my last pass set the same way.

I wonder what  Website Auto-Logoff.  that is set at 2 weeks does?   I left that setting as it was when I set up my last pass account BUT what does Website Auto-Logoff  do??  Thanks again for your help xlUltra...   FYI I was/ am a Bitwarden user and have been for a few years BUT I wanted to add last pass as well in case Bitwarden ever went down. And using Last pass I find it easier especially on my mobile device. I will be using Last pass as my go-to password manager & Bitwarden as  my backup.
