Confusing developer name on the Apple store
"There's also the developer name, which in LastPass' case should be "LogMeIn, Inc.," not a random person. "
NO! It should be "GoTo Technologies USA, Inc.", which is used on the Google app store. This is current name of the organisation, and has been for 2 years, not the old name that the Apple store uses. I assume there's either a hefty fee, or it is a lot of aggravation to change the developer name with Apple.
It's one thing to say the user should check the application is from the right company, but that is incredibly hard when the company does not use their current name on the Apple store!
Also there are two types of users of password managers, those who are technical enough to check the details before installing, and those that were advised by someone technical that they should be using a password manager. Family members or friends of techies are less likely to check the details before downloading, and are most likely to be tricked by these fakes. If it has a close-enough name and icon, that must be the right one.
