Introducing LastPass Wallet: Backup Your Billfold, with Attachments, for Free

We're excited to announce the arrival of LastPass Wallet! The latest addition to our mobile suite, Wallet stores the data you carry in your physical wallet on your iOS device, so you can securely backup your most valuable personal information to LastPass. The app features beautiful notes for adding cards and IDs, with robust attachment and sync capabilities - for free! 

Get Started with Notes 

Wallet is built around LastPass' secure notes feature, with templates for credit cards, passports, driver's licenses, memberships, bank accounts, and more. Any card, piece of paper, or form of data that someone would keep on their person can be stored in Wallet. New users create an account via the app for free, then get started by adding notes:
Current LastPass users can simply login with their usual account information, and any existing secure notes will automatically sync to Wallet where they can be viewed, edited, and synced back to other locations:
Attach Anything

Audio clips, photos, and text can be saved as an attachment to any note. Use the app to record an important voice clip:
or securely store pictures from your device's photo gallery. 

Secure Your Data and Sync Everywhere

Wallet offers security settings to restrict access to stored data. "Logout on close" ensures that the active session is killed when the app is closed, while a pin code prompt can be used to re-authenticate when multitasking between Wallet and other apps.

Data added to LastPass Wallet is securely synced to all browsers, computers, and mobile devices where a user logs in to their LastPass account. Although they'll also be synced to LastPass, attachments are not yet accessible via the browser addons or other mobile apps. 

Availability 

The free LastPass Wallet app is available on the App Store on iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad at www.itunes.com/appstore. For more details on using the app, please see our help article. 

And more!

For those new to LastPass, Wallet is an easy introduction to secure data and password management on a mobile device. Wallet makes sure that if you lose your physical wallet, you have a "digitized" version that makes it less of a hassle to start over. Wallet also provides a transition to the LastPass browser-based experience, where new users can then get started with saving and filling logins.

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Best,
The LastPass Team

    1. Why they didn't release the android version first is beyond me... It has twice the market share of iOS.

      Delete
    2. It's likely that the iOS version generates more revenue.

      Delete
    3. If it's free how does it generate more revenue? In any event, I would be shocked if they weren't working on an android version...

      Delete
    4. Market share alone is not the only factor. First that market share has a different composition: much more enterprise users for iPhone than Android (not really penetrating the enterprise market). Second, iPhone uses one, well organized, platform. Android has a variety of versions.

      Delete
    5. @Anonymous The real reason Apple was first here is that Apple does not allow us to do a free trial. It appeared to be the best way around that problem was to give away something free that gives people a taste of what LastPass does on their Apple device. When you tell your friends at a party that they should be using LastPass, Wallet is a good place to get started if you're a iOS user -- we really had nothing for that case before for Apple.

    6. This is the *original* Anonymous speaking: I for one am not upset, confused, nor surprised that the iOS version was released before the Android version. I don't *care* which platform gets an app first. Good things come to those who wait. :-) I think the competition between iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and whatever else is still kicking out there is healthy and I hope it continues.

      Oh, and I did I mention I love LastPass? Keep up the good work!

    8. From what I can see, we have had this functionality on Android all along in Secure Notes. It just isn't as pretty and can't deal with the media attachments (though it seems that there is no way to access these outside of the wallet app anyway).

      Delete
    9. Whatever the reason it is a slap in the face to those of us using Android. I read it as LastPass thinks of Android as second class.

    2. Apple will soon ban the app from iTunes for violating some obscure something-or-another. Then they'll recreate the App, make a minor change to the icon, and relaunch it as their own in the next iOS.

  39. Because iOS makes a lot more money for app developers than Android, you morons. You retards obviously don't know anything about business. Probably the same idiots who cried foul when the banks gave you loans for homes that your greedy asses couldn't afford. When you have finite resources, you create a product that will generate the most revenue for a given segment. Simple business principles. If Lastpass had more resources, they would release an Android version simultaneously. But they don't. So shut up already. And I'm an Android user (Sprint EVO 3D).

    1. iTunes fee for paid apps: 30%
      iTunes fee for free apps: 0%
      Google Play fee for paid apps: 30%
      Google Play fee for free apps: 0%

      The real answer would be user market share, my friend. As developers of multiple existing iOS and Android apps, I'm sure LastPass knows exactly who their target demographic is.

      As an Android using, iPad toting father of who you would refer to as a "retarded" child, I'd suggest you continue posting as "Anonymous" so as to not link your true identity to your complete and utter lack of brain power.

    2. Yeah, keep posting "Mike" who won't link to a real account. Lastpass created this for iOS first because the fees were the exact same? Really? Shut up already. They created for iOS first because that's where maximum revenue is generated. Yes, you are a retard, who unfortunately breeds too. Good luck to your fetus since daddy doesn't understand how wealth is created or how to properly run a business when resources are limited.

  45. I'm guessing that they are looking at this app to draw more sales of LastPass Premium and they see a larger demographic of likely buyers on the iOS side of things. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that they know what they are doing. I can survive awhile longer without it... but don't make us wait too long!

  57. I've long been a LastPass fan but when I installed LastPass Wallet on my iPod Touch 4, I was disappointed to find there is no offline access to my notes after completely closing the app. Message says "Incorrect password and no network connectivity detected" when trying to log in offline. That isn't very useful for an iPod Touch which is not always connected to wi-fi. Pretty slick app otherwise, though.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I am a long time paying user of LastPass for password management and I love the idea of LastPass Wallet but until I am able to create custom Note Types the app is a bit useless to me.

    For example, the existing Bank Account note type may by great if you live in the USA but (surprise surprise) it if not so useful of you live outside the USA. In Australia value like "Routing Number", "SWIFT Code", and "IBAN Number" mean nothing to me. Also my bank allows me to have a phone banking PIN that is different to my card PIN. I cannot logically store that.

    I hope custom note types are not too far away.

    P.S. When is the Palm OS version of the due for release? :-P

    ReplyDelete

  73. Personally I find the new app pointless. Why do I want yet another app just for notes? I can access notes from the original mobile LastPass app. If it's because now I can dictate notes and use attachments, then add it to the original app, I don't need a completely new app for that.

I'm a bit nervous that several of them aren't my notes. I already checked to me sure. I think you have a coding problem. All my notes contain code that I shouldn't be able to see. At least, I don't think I should. Good luck with this app. It has true potential. Looking forward to many more years of paying you Guys that mere $12 a yr cuzz I should :)

  77. +1 for an Android App - and that's from an Iphone user. I love my Iphone but don't want to be locked in. My next phone may well be an S3. So I need to know that the apps I allow myself to rely on are cross-platform (and having the functionality in the paid version doesn't count!)

  84. I have kept details of my wallet in Lastpass for a good while (I have the mobile app for Android). I look forward to taking advantage of this more specific UI/capability when it reaches the Android platform.

    One thing that has confused me for some time (probably because I have not read enough on the forums) is how to link forms with secure notes. I have added credit (and debit and charge and loyalty) cards to forms so that I can auto populate forms conveniently but I find that I am also having to store separately the same card details in secure notes plus additional information (and for those cards that have online facilities, I have to have another entry for the corresponding login details).

    The noise about the IOS version coming first is a little distracting but understandable. I hope the free route does lead to an increase in the number of people who choose to convert and take up the premium account and mobile offering. (As generally IOS users have shown a greater tendency to pay for things than Android users, it would seem prudent to start there rather than the larger Android base that spends less.) I am curious regarding the limitations with Apple you mention though. I thought you could now offer an app that starts free and provide an in-app option to subscribe to a service / more capable app.

  88. People are irritated because for once, Android isn't the first priority. Awww. You know they're developing it for Android, just wait, understand what iOS users feel like much of the time.

    Examples? We just got an Amazon Cloud Player app a YEAR AFTER the Android was released (at launch of the product). Same for Google Music (Google Play). Same for tons of apps, like Dolphin Browser, Dropbox... even LastPass/Xmarks, for that matter... the Android version seems to always be first and/or always have the most features and updates, while the iOS version is neglected.

    So hold your horses, Hemhorroid owners. Frankly, I'm happy they released on iOS first. I'm tired of Android being treated (I suppose rightly or at least understandably so) as the golden child... of Google, naturally... but they don't just give preference to Android-- which is fine, and I understand that Android OS is theirs and they're going to do that; it's only business. The sad part is they neglect iOS totally or delay apps for a very loooong time. Google Drive app for iOS? Missing. Google Music app for iOS? Missing, still.

    It's like the old cliche (Ben Stein->) "Beuller? Beuller?" -- "Google?" "Google?" Absent! LOL.

    Anyway. No beef. Just think there should be no spiteful feelings from Android users, considering they're usually the ones drinking from the golden cup.

    Of course, that's just my opinion... no reason to flame it.

  92. Poor Android users. Developing for Android is a drag. Besides Android users tend to be cheap and don't spend money on premium service. That's why even though there are zillions of Droid sets out there, since they're mostly just given away for free, most developers postpone release until they have iOS nailed. That's the reality. I think at Christmas they released figures showing that iOS users outspend Droid users by a huge margin.
