    Default Using Lastpass no longer works....

    I'm one of those people, like many, who have very complicated passwords for different sites. I've been admin on sites and seen where people use the same password for their email as they do for many different forums, and this leads to them being hacked, info stolen, etc...so knowing firsthand the damage, I make up some wacky passwords when I join a forum -- and I'm a member, actively -- at over 15 or 20 sites, since I'm a stay-home parent and have plenty of time on my hands to surf the net (when I'm not changing diapers)...

    At any rate...up until today, AC has worked fine with Lastpass. (if lastpass ever gets hacked, I'm in trouble ...but that's doubtful because of how they do security)...

    Whatever happened since the forum forced logout of every member and re-login, caused me to not be able to use Lastpass. In fact, I had to open lastpass, copy my PW and paste it into AC just so I could log-in this morning.
    And on mobile, that's even harder to do, since I have to use a lastpass app, search for AC, and try to copy/paste a password.

    I can understand usability, flexibility...so on and so forth...but there comes a time when it becomes more trouble than it's worth and causes too many inconveniences ..

    I would've thought there would have been a forum-wide questionnaire asking if members would be interested in moving to a "One login for all" system...to see how it would fly, instead of just incorporating it and forcing folks to adapt to it..because there's no way to adapt with something like Lastpass. I can't force it to fill in my username and password...so I'm forced to adapt in a different way.

    Hi jonathan,

    You'll need to update Lastpass (or other password manager) to store the username and password against https://passport.mobilenations.com. There's several times when you can save the update but perhaps the easiest is to visit https://passport.mobilenations.com and log in using your AC credentials. From then you should never have to copy/paste your password again.

    Regards

    Steph

    Why is it that you can't stay logged in, as before this passport thing took over? Instead, having to log-in daily...but when I click log-in, I don't even get the username/password screen. It just ...does something and the page reloads, and I'm logged in.
