Lastpass can be used offline, all encryption / decryption is done locally
yeah, i thought that too, and yet read the article. users were locked out, the site was timing out, the browser plugins were unresponsive, and users couldn't access their credentials. whatever offline capability lastpass has is clearly not good enough.
I use it and did see the disconnect message but was able to get to my passwords. On the mobile app going off line is a check box you tick on the login screen
that's great, good for you. that's not what other people experienced. they experience unresponsive plugins - meaning they were unusable, not just that they couldn't connect.of course, not everyone had that experience. the article didn't say ALL lastpass users were locked out of their accounts, only that many of them were, so the effects were not uniform across the entire user population and you apparently lucked out.
