LastPass’ App Fill on Android Gets an Update

By November 18, 2014 Mobile 39 Comments
At LastPass, we’ve always believed in making it as easy as possible to practice good password security on all your devices. We’re furthering that mission with our latest update on Android, which brings near-universal support for logging in to apps and web sites.

Until now, the structure of some apps, like banking and financial apps, required extra steps to get logged in. Today we’re releasing the App Fill Helper, which can fill your credentials in almost any app or web site. It’s there when you need it, but can just as easily be disabled or enabled for any or all apps.

The App Fill Helper appears on the edge of your screen, in browsers and selected apps. The helper can be dragged to either side of your screen, so it stays out of the way while being easily accessible to assist with your login.

When you tap the helper, LastPass displays matching logins for the web site or app. In the cases where the web site or app doesn’t allow LastPass to autofill, as we sometimes see with financial apps, the app fill helper will offer convenient copy-paste options instead.

Overall, this update allows us to help you log into more web sites and apps than ever before. Now you’re typing less and getting an improved mobile experience, because LastPass can better handle the huge variety of apps and mobile web sites.

Available in the Google Play Store, the updated LastPass app supports filling logins in Android mobile apps and a number of mobile browsers, including Chrome, Opera, Yandex, Boat Browser, InBrowser, Amazon’s Silk Browser, and Javelin.

The LastPass for Android app is part of our Premium service for $12 per year, with a free two-week trial for you to test out the features before upgrading. Or, upgrade today for unlimited mobile sync and even more password management features.
