I recently began to use lastpass to manage my passwords. However I can no longer login to futures.io (formerly BMT) with chrome when lastpass is enabled. (I can switch chrome to incognito mode and login works fine).

I can not login at all, regardless if lastpass is actually doing the login for bmt for me or not - it is enough it is enabled.

Since this happened after I began using lastpass I am aware it not a futures.io (formerly BMT) issue, but I can use other vBulletin powered forums with lastpass without any issues, so maybe someone knows why its different here?

You'll have to provide more information, such as what "cannot login" means... error messages, etc.

futures.io (formerly BMT) is a perpetual login, do it once and you don't need to do it again.

With lastpass installed i do this:

1. enter username/password

2. The Redirecting page appears.

3. it shows the login fields again andi am not logged in.

Sounds like it is doing something weird with your cookie settings. Especially if you login before you enable lastpass, and it asks you to login again. This means it is removing/deleting/overriding the cookie settings, because futures.io (formerly BMT) would not ask you to login more than once, ever.

Possible known Lastpass issue, it would seem

LastPass Forums • View topic - Never getting prompted on any vBulletin sites

I agree, I think it is something lastpass do - I was just wondering if anyone had any experience if it could work, as it does work with other vbulletin sites. I can still login in incognito mode in chrome so I have a workaround.

I use Keepass2 personally. All I can suggest is looking at cookie settings.

1) Disable Lastpass.
2) Login to futures.io (formerly BMT).
3) Close your browser.
4) Confirm when you go to futures.io (formerly BMT), you are still logged in. You should always be logged in, permanently, perpetually.
5) Enable Lastpass.
6) If you are now logged out of futures.io (formerly BMT), then it confirms Lastpass is screwing with your cookies it would seem.

My point is, Lastpass is not needed on a site like futures.io (formerly BMT) because you never have to login more than once, it remembers your login.

You might also try setting an exclusion. I see a lot of people with a google search talking about going to vault and setting a site to "never".

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the input - yes i excluded futures.io (formerly BMT) in lastpass and it works fine.

Lastpass is usefull if you use multiple computers or computers from a large pool of computers sometimes as it syncs the password between computers you are using. But as you say its not a big problem.

OK, glad it is solved.

Yes, I can't live without Keepass2 as well. @sam028 turned me on to it originally. It is all synced across my devices as well, using my own private storage method that I can trust
