LastPass has just released their new feature, allowing the password manager program to automatically change your password on certain websites if they have been hacked or compromised.
To utilize this feature, you will need to log in to your LastPass account, navigate to whichever website you want to setup this new feature for, click Edit and select the "Change Password Automatically" feature. There are approximately 75 websites currently supported by this program with major players including; Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and Home Depot.
Once finalized, LastPass automatically changes your passwords for you. This is done by it opening up the browser locally on your screen, logging in and changing the password automatically. There hasn't been any mention on exactly how LastPass gets the hack information delivered directly, but it's a seemingly good precaution to have just in case something goes wrong. Currently supporting Chrome, Safari and Firefox, this automatic feature is featured in Beta format. The point of this program is to manage multiple websites all under one banner, allowing it to quickly and efficiently deal with threats without you having to do it manually step-by-step.
