You're right. LastPass does not know your password. Only you know it. If you forget it, LastPass can't help you.

I'd suggest taking a look at LastPass (LP). It's free, but for a buck a month, you'll get higher priority when you ask for help. There are others, but it's the first one (recommended by...

Is there a setting to control this timeout -- possibly disable it? If so, where can I find it?
