LastPass and ProtonMail how to guide
If your like me, you have many many many password to keep track of. Impossible! This needs a password manager. Step in to the light LastPass! I’m not going to explain that LastPass is as I will assume you will know already or will now go and google it.
I also use ProtonMail, again google them too, but in short they provide encrypted email. The thing is that with ProtonMail I need to enter 2 passwords.
1 to login to the site with my username and password, the 2nd one is for me to decrypt the mailbox. For a while I struggled with this, instead storing the 2nd password as a secure note in LastPass. Having to keep copy and paste this alot was getting annoying, so i reached out to the staff at LastPass and they worked with me to resolve this issue and i would like to share that knowledge with you wonderful followers.
Go to the login page of the website.
Assuming you have the browser plugin,
- click on the icon
- click on show matching sites.
Next Click on Edit
Now click on Edit Form Fields
Click on Add Form Field
Now Click on Add and your done.
From here on , LastPass will auto fill the username and password, then when the decryption page comes up it will also auto fill that page too.
