Disable "Password at risk" -- UI Design Flaw

How can I disable the notification "Password at risk" that appears in my vault list view?

 

I was hoping to find a disable button in the Account Settings, or in the Account Options. I did not.

 

Just to be safe, in case this is new to the designers at LastPass, let me say that I and other people I know intentionally use *simple* passwords for certain cases. And we sometimes intentionally have LastPass entries with the password field *empty*. In all of those cases, LastPass unhelpfully shouts the false-positive alert "! Password at risk."

@edreilly  You can now exclude specific password entries from the security check, from within the Vault itself by clicking the three dots next to each one and selecting Exclude from security score.  This might help you with visibility and awareness when viewing the password list at a glance.

Ash, Thank you. I looked for a three dot button next to a password item, and could not find it.  Could you please describe where the button is, or perhaps attach a screenshot?   By the way, if you are speaking about a list within the Security Dashboard view, I have a free account and no access.

@edreilly  It should look like this:

Re: Disable "Password at risk" -- UI Design Flaw

Thank you. Let me say part of my last post in a different way. What I said on the last post was "... if you are speaking about a list within the Security Dashboard view, I have a free account and no access."

 

What that means is I have a free account. I don't have a paid account. The Security Dashboard view only comes with the paid account. The Security Dashboard view is not available for people like me who have a free account. The feature to exclude passwords from the security score, to prevent a false red alert "Password at risk", is only available for paid accounts. This comes to me as a design flaw. By design flaw I mean the user experience is degraded. I have a free account, so I get that things will be different. But the uneditable red alerts are relatively new. So it's like something bad was added. It's Ok with me if you choose to degrade your product for free users, but it's possible your QA people missed this. That's ok with me also.

 

If there is a way for Free account holders to exclude passwords from the security score calculation, I am interested to learn how.
