Company no longer allows company passwords to be saved on devices… but they will allow us to use password managers such as LastPass or Dashlane… What is the difference if the passwords are stored locally? Or is there something I’m missing?

Edit: I should also add that they permanently disabled our ability to save passwords to ANY website on our work laptops. But LastPass is still good to go.

I'm just having a tough time grasping this company decision.

We have several layers of security to even log on to the laptop (but I understand that people walk away and leave their stuff up) but that doesn't seem to matter much to me with PW managers because they autofill passwords in, just like Google Chrome would do…

So why would they disallow us to save company passwords on devices but allow us to use Lastpass?
