LastPass for Apple Watch Is Here!

Wearable tech is reaching new heights with the release of the Apple Watch. And here at LastPass, we always want your passwords to be with you, no matter where you are and no matter which device you’re using.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that LastPass for Apple Watch is here, so you always have your passwords on hand. LastPass for Apple Watch gives you quick access to your passwords and helps you easily find the information you need to get things done, every day.

Whether you want to look up a password on the go or find something you recorded in a LastPass Secure Note, the data stored in your vault will be available right from your wrist. Think of it as a simplified LastPass app that provides a handy way to get to your data without taking your phone out of your pocket. We’re also hoping to utilize Apple Watch as a biometric two-factor option for securing your LastPass account, when Apple opens up the API to do so.

    Even more supported devices, more platforms, more opportunities. It’s great! I don’t think it is bad as Jason said earlier, but for sure it would be fair to support both vendors simultaneously. By the way, I don’t use Apple gadgets, don’t use Google / Android too. I use Blackberry and already have no hope for something not somehow ported from android. I mean, it would be great if every platform got its own fully functional, full-featured lastpass things :)

    This is TOTAL CRAP. Android Wear has been out and we get no app? The largest install base by FAR, and you guys decide to go with Apple first. Kind of funny how companies complain about Apple’s market share, but then do everything they can to increase it. Not to be jumping the gun, but I know I’ll be thinking heavily about who I support with my dollars when my renewal comes up.

    • Jason says:

      This is not total crap. Android user do not spend money like iOS users do. If you knew anything about what you are talking about you would know iOS always gets the best first. Also, Apple has sold more watches in 1 day than ALL of the Android Wear watches added together over the last year. So you are wrong about market share. Wake up.

        To those who say Android users don’t spend money. We pay the same $12 a year for the LastPass service.

        I agree with both arguments to a certain extent. Yes Apple products are able to rake in more doe for 3rd party apps and services but on the other hand Android Users pay the same $12 a year that iPhone users pay but they get less out of their money. This is kinda like my $12 bucks isn’t paying for services for me but services for iPhone/Apple Watch users even though Android Wear has been out for almost a year (for developers at least) but still no LastPass app. Then there is the argument for people without Android Wear, Apple Watch, or platforms without wearables (Blackberry/WindowsPhone) which are users that should be recognized because if they do get a wearable they are going to potentially want an app for there watch too. Meaning if LastPass only makes an app for the Apple Watch right after it comes out but not any other platform who knows when the LastPass app for Windows Phone will come out because at this point who know when the Android Wear app will come out because LastPass only seems to care about Apple users. My main point is if services/apps are going to recognize a new platform do it immediately or do it for all options not just the one that will get more users leaving current users in the dust.

      Android Wear utilizes a different method of interaction than Apple Watch does. Looking at the way the user interacts with Android Wear devices (stream of notifications), I’m not quite sure how LastPass could build an “app” for the platform.

      Thanks everyone for the feedback, we love to hear from our community and better understand what you’d like to see from us. We have looked at integration with Android Wear, but until now the small screen has been a challenge for us to find a compelling benefit for our users. We received less than a handful of requests, though two-factor authentication is something we have considered offering with the platform. We certainly haven’t forgotten our Android users! We’ve had several big updates to the Android app over the past year, where more of our Android users get value. We just had a massive update to the app a few weeks ago with a new Material design, which took months of dedicated work from our Android team. Now that we’re seeing interest and demand in our community, we’re re-evaluating our priorities. We also encourage you to join the conversation in our Android community: https://plus.google.com/communities/115800679102445817472 and share your thoughts with us.
