Lastpass Keeps Showing Up on Report?

  • Question
  • Updated 4 years ago
So, I've recently started using Lastpass for password management, and for some reason it keeps showing up on my report with the note: "Site allows the download of programs, files, or operating systems which may allow the circumvention of accountability and filtering."
Now, I've looked all through the settings and options in Lastpass, and I can't see anything that matches this note.

Is this a mistake? Or is there a serious risk of circumvention using Lastpass that I just haven't found? Any answers would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Eric,
     Thanks for the post! Your question is an intriguing one: Lastpass doesn't have anything built into it that should allow for circumvention of Covenant Eyes. I will check in with our reports team and see why it appears with that statement on the report. Thank you for bringing it to our attention!

Hi again Eric,
     I was able to touch base with the right people, and it is definitely mislabeled. That disclaimer is a valid thing to see on a report, and generally does indicate a site that is able to circumvent Covenant Eyes in some way, but for whatever reason, it is incorrectly picking up LastPass. They are working on a fix and you should stop seeing that on your reports when it's done.

Thanks again for bringing it to our attention!

Hi Eric,
    The disclaimer that will show up on reports when Last Pass is used has been revised to say "Site allows circumvention by allowing others to automatically sign in under the Admin Account for Covenant Eyes when Last Pass is permanently signed into," so although the functionality of Last Pass doesn't directly create a way to circumvent, we want to warn Covenant Eyes Administrators not to save their passwords in Last Pass on any shared machines.
