Can someone please explain how to get Lastpass to run in Tor, I need on occasions to access some sites that I have passwords which are impossible to remember.
Usually what works for me is opening LastPass in a different browser and simply copying/pasting the passwords I need.
For example, I'll have my Tor window up, but at the same time, I'll open up a Chrome window with the LastPass extension. Then, I'll just copy and paste each password I need from the Chrome window to the Tor window. It works like a charm.
I hope this helps!
I'd heard that if you have other programs like browsers that communicate with the web open at the same time, then these might be ‘leaky’ and possibly divulge information about your system, not sure if it's location, or something else?
Because of this, I copy & paste the details into notepad; then close the browsers & cloud sync program or anything that's still regularly communicating with the net; in addition, I use a VPN. Don't know if I need to take other security precautions.
This might sound like overkill, but as I'm not too knowledgeable about these things, I didn't want to take that chance. Personally, I'd love to be able to use LastPass on Tor!
In the top menu, select Tools -> Add-ons to get to Add-ons manager.
Search for 'Lastpass' in the searchbox in top right corner, it takes you to Firefox Lastpass Add-on page. Click Add to Firefox button and Lastpass will be installed as add-on to your Tor browser.
Though I need to mention, question about anonymity is still open: LastPass + Tor = Anonymous?
TL;DR: Last Pass collects numerous data about its users and can expose your anonymity while using the Tor browser - just use an application locally to store your passwords. If you really need for some reason to use Last Pass and it isn't working, it could be some glitch. Try reinstalling the extension or try installing it in the Firefox browser. If it works fine in the Firefox browser, then the issue is with using that specific addon on Tor. Also, try updating the Tor browser, as that could be an issue too.
