Hey Windows 10 users, we’ve got some great news! If you’ve been using Microsoft Edge, the new default browser for Windows 10, we know you’ve eagerly awaited the arrival of a LastPass extension. And we’re thrilled to say: It’s arrived!
Windows Insider participants can now gain early access to LastPass for Microsoft Edge, and the extension will be widely-available for all Microsoft Edge users later this year. As the first password manager extension supported on Microsoft Edge, we’re excited to give millions of Windows 10 users a simple, secure way to manage their passwords from the browser of their choice. We’ve worked closely with the Microsoft team to deliver an extension that feels “native” to the browser and integrates seamlessly with your browsing experience.
How it works
The LastPass extension enables quick access to the LastPass password vault within Microsoft Edge. As you browse, LastPass will autofill passwords saved in your vault, and new accounts can promptly be added to the vault without navigating away from the current page.
The extension and the LastPass field icons appear as you’re browsing to manage logins, fill passwords, and view and secure your data. The LastPass extension also provides built-in security features, such as alerts that let the user know when there are duplicate passwords in the vault and presents the option to generate random passwords.
We’re still working hard on the extension, with more great improvements to come as the Microsoft team also makes enhancements to Microsoft Edge browser. If you try out the extension and have feedback or reports, please submit them here!
