LastPass (www.lastpass.com) announced via Twitter (LastPass Twitter feed) that their servers are overloaded, so you may have trouble logging in to the service, and their Security Notification (read Security Notification) tells you how to access your passwords in the mean time.
For now here are what I feel are the most important parts of their Security Notification – how to stay safe while they are working and access your logins:
1. OVERLOADED – DON’T CHANGE PASSWORDS YET
We’re overloaded handling support and the sheer load of password changes is slowing us down. We’ve implemented a way for you to verify your email and then not be immediately forced to change your password for that IP, access from any other IP would bring you back to email verification. You can now wait a few days if you know you’ll be on the same IP without loss of security, and due to this overloading we think that’s prudent to wait.
We’re asking if you’re not being asked to change your password then hold off — we’re protecting everyone.
2. ACCESS YOUR LOGINS NOW – OFFLINE
You can access your data via LastPass in offline mode (pull the cable out of the wall then login) or by downloading LastPass Pocket : https://lastpass.com/misc_download.php (choose your OS)
A note about the LastPass Pocket link, you may have to click the “full list of downloads for your platform” link to download LastPass Pocket.
