Sharing Now Available in LastPass Android App

We’re excited to announce that LastPass for Android users will now be able to utilize the password and note sharing feature directly from Android devices. You will now be able to take full advantage of the secure sharing of sensitive information between LastPass users even while you’re on the go.


Partners, family, and friends co-managing online accounts, such as financial accounts or your TV streaming service, will be able to take advantage of easily sharing access to those logins.

This feature also allows you to send other LastPass users private information saved within LastPass Secure Notes. Passport numbers, PIN codes, bank account numbers, or any information stored and shared within a note are encrypted and securely synced.

From your vault, you can tap on a site or note name, and select "Share". For sites, you can choose whether or not you want the recipient to be able to view the password. You'll be prompted for the email address of the LastPass user you want to share with, and once sent the login or note will be synced between both vaults.

Think of it as a secure alternative to texting or emailing your sensitive personal information.

The updated Android app, which is included in the LastPass Premium service for $12 per year, is now available on the Google Play Store. Users can try the Premium service for free for two weeks.

  2. Isn't it possible to paste the password in secret mode and read it in a text editor?

    1. Yes, it's true that savvy end-users could bypass the sharing: https://helpdesk.lastpass.com/features/sharing/#Important+Note+Regarding+Hidden+Passwords%3A - we strongly recommend only ever sharing unique, strong passwords, and updating them / unsharing them when appropriate.
