LastPass has recently troubled users when it locked out people from accessing their accounts due to a bug. Once again, LastPass irritated their users due to another outage. However, this time, the incident happened as they erroneously removed their extension from the Chrome store.
Reportedly, the LastPass password manager had another outage for users after the firm accidentally pulled their chrome extension.
The problem happened soon after LastPass users were affected by a previous outage due to a weird glitch.
After the second outage and disappearance from Chrome store, the users flooded Twitter with their complaints.
People also become frustrated due to the continued outage that halted their activities for hours.
It turned out that LastPass mistakenly removed their Chrome extension from the Chrome store. Thus, users faced troubles in downloading the extension to manage their passwords. Clicking on the chrome store link simply showed a 404 error to the users.
Eventually, the LastPass Support confirmed in a tweet they are working to remediate the removal of their extension from the Chrome store.
They also acknowledged this problem on their status page.
Meanwhile, they advised their users to switch to Web Vault or Mobile app or download the add-on to another browser.
A few hours from the occurrence of the problem, LastPass confirmed identifying the issue and pledged quick restoration.
Finally, on January 23, 2020, they confirmed the restoration of the extension.
