Why am I seeing the message, "LastPass has detected a login form that is insecure" when I visit a site?
LastPass will display this warning message if your LastPass web browser extension Preferences are enabled to warn before autofilling on a form that is not secure. This means that the website you are visiting uses an insecure method to submit data (LastPass specifically looks for GET and mailto: methods on the page).
When prompted, you will have two options:
- Click OK if you trust the website, which will allow LastPass to fill your stored login data.
- Click Cancel if you do not trust the website and/or do not want LastPass to autofill. If desired, you can still manually fill your login data.
Additionally, you can enable or disable this setting in your Preferences by doing either of the following (based on your navigational view):
- Click the LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar, then go to Preferences > Advanced > Enable or Disable the setting Warn before filling insecure forms > Save.
- Click the LastPass icon in your web browser toolbar, then go to Account Options > Extension Preferences > Enable or Disable the setting Warn before filling insecure forms > Save.
