Getting More Done on Android Has Never Been So Easy

By October 8, 2014 Mobile 5 Comments
With the LastPass app for Android, the only thing you have to worry about is your LastPass master password, and LastPass takes care of the rest.

Logging in to an app? LastPass fills it for you.
Browsing on Chrome mobile and need to login? LastPass fills it for you.
Have a fingerprint reader on your phone? Add it to LastPass as a PIN code alternative.

Everywhere you go, LastPass is there to streamline your mobile experience. See it in action:

For more details on how to set up and get started with these features, check out our video tutorial. (And if you’re an Apple user, see our post here for great new features on iOS, too!)

Our latest update to the Android app supports Shared Folders for both LastPass Premium and LastPass Enterprise users. Universal access and real-time updates are a priority for us, and these new features give you easier on-the-go access to data and the ability to change settings at a moment’s notice.

You can open the “Manage Shared Folders” feature from the menu on the top right of the vault (or your device’s menu button). From there you can create new Shared Folders, add users to the Shared Folders, edit permissions, and remove users from the folders. Add logins to the folders by changing the “Folder” field in the site “edit” menu.

Shared Folders and the logins added to them will sync automatically to the vaults of any LastPass users given access to the Folders.

Other updates include changes to reduce the network and memory usage of the app, to help you save even more battery life on your smartphone.

And in addition to our existing support for the fingerprint readers on Samsung phones and tablets, we’ve also added support for the Synaptics fingerprint readers that other manufacturers are now adding to their phones, like the new XOLO Q2100.

The update is now available in the app store! The LastPass Android app is part of our Premium service for $12 per year and our Enterprise service for teams. Both have a free trial so you can check out the features first or upgrade today to sync LastPass to all of your mobile devices.

    Love the Android app, but find myself continually frustrated with LastPass prompts taking up the screen when I don’t need it. Does it have to always take the foreground in the center of the screen?

      If it appears on apps where it shouldn’t, try editing the “app association” settings in the LastPass app > Preferences menu. Otherwise, can you provide specifics of when it gets in the way of your workflow?

    If you turn on the LastPass “App integration” feature on an Amazon Fire Phone, the Dynamic Perspective feature gets disbaled.
