Hello, I just joined, and also just started using lastpass.
I've hit a conundrum: Do you use lastpass for your email that is the recovery email for your lastpass?
That can be quite the Catch-22: If you need to recover your LastPass account, you do it with the recovery email. But in order to log in to your recovery email, you need to get into your LastPass account.
I generated the email password with LastPass, then printed it out and stored it in a safe place. You can also have LastPass print out some one-time passwords and store there somewhere safe.
This is something I feel us security geeks have really failed people on: telling people not to write down passwords. What we MEANT was, don't write down passwords and stick them to the monitor or under the keyboard. But you have somewhere all your important papers are kept: birth certificate, social security card, etc. We're actually good at securing bits of paper when we know they need to be secured. Do that with your LastPass master password, your recovery email password, and other important data. I printed out my Google password since I need that to get into my Android phones. They're all locked away securely if I ever need them.
