Authentication should play nice with password managers ala LastPass

Postby matthew.lapointe@gmail.com » Wed Feb 03, 2021 12:52 pm

Web-based authentication for church services doesn't play well with LastPass (and I expect other browser/plugin-based password managers). Two notable issues are

1) the show/unmask password eye icon on the text field sits on top of the LastPass icon in the same space, making it difficult to click one or the other reliably

2) even if you manage to click the right one the LastPass autofills the password with the user information (rather than the password itself. Unclear why it might be doing this.

At any rate, it would be good to test and support popular password managers (built into browsers as well as third party options like LastPass/Dashlane/1Password/etc.).

Thank you.

Not sure what changed, but #2 appears to have been addressed. If you click the outside corner of the LastPass icon you are able to fill the password (though this aught to happen automatically, so maybe that's #3). The same show/unmask password problem still persists.

Would still love this addressed.

Matthew, you may have noticed since your original post, but this is almost exclusively a user-to-user forum. There may be an occasional Church developer around, but posting enhancement requests on this Forum is likely to get no action, as "decision-makers" don't look here for input. The best bet is to use a Feedback link in any of the Church's web pages. We are assured that all Feedback requests are processed and categorized.

I agree this would be nice, if you submit Feedback that's our only way to push for these types of changes.

I use LastPass and usually get around the issue described by right clicking in the field and accessing LastPass through that menu.

LastPass shows their button by injecting content into the page. This seems like a bug that LastPass might be able to fix. Have you reported the issue to them as well?
