Re: Forced Update
Thats the driver and the incentive to update. You do not have access to your precious items until you first fix the flaws for the safe in which they reside.

No IE?
"... its browser extensions for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge ..."

I just noticed IE is not mentioned in here, is it like nobody cares or no bugs in IE? I would be surprised if IE stands up among others :--).

Quick fix
"... The problem was immediately fixed in a new version of the extension 4.1.36a released the next day. ..."

On this, kudos to LastPass, they can quickly deploy apps.

Re: Forced Update
"... application support should not be allowed until update happens ..."

That is a great idea, I do not know how to identify when the updates are ready and how are the people going to login their apps without it in the meantime.

LastPass
This is not the first problem LastPass had problems, that is why I do not use any of these passwords apps.

Forced Update
I think in instances where a users credentials could be compromised that application support should not be allowed until update happens. If this update was forced out then kudos to a great job.
