Turn on the LastPass extension today to speed up your mobile logins and make it easier to get into your accounts when you’re not using the LastPass app. You can access your vault directly from Safari, Chrome, or over 200 popular apps with the LastPass extension for iOS. The LastPass extension lets you autofill usernames, passwords, addresses, and payment info without having to switch apps or copy to your device clipboard.

 

It’s easy to setup the iOS extension. Just follow these steps:

2. Tap Tools on the bottom of the screen.3. Tap “LastPass extension” from the list.

4. Tap “Enable extension“ when the dialog pops up.

5. Follow the prompts on the following screen, and tap “Add the extension” on the bottom of the screen.

6. A menu will pop up from the bottom of the screen (this is called a share sheet). Tap “More” which has an icon that looks like this: 

7. Tap the slider next to the LastPass option so that it turns green.

8. If it’s not already, move LastPass to the top of the list by tapping and dragging the “handles” (two horizontal bars) on the right-hand side of the row.

You only have to do this once, and then LastPass will always be available when you tap the “share” option to pull up the share sheet of your preferred mobile browser.

Now you can use the LastPass extension to autofill passwords and other information without switching apps. No more copying and pasting for you!

    Gee. What’s new here? That share-pull in IOS was already available for ages… nothing new under the sun.

    Still no tight integration on IOS; as on Android it senses password fields on tap and autofills it.

  • Couple of days before i was trying it but didn’t work. These steps are very helpful.

    Your Facebook page states you can do this in Chrome; however, the instructions above give directions for iOS only. Can you provide instructions for Android phones?

    I’ve tried to install Last Pass after retirement and used another password and could not get anything to work. I tried to contact you to get some info to no avail.
    I have since gone to Dashlane which I’m not totally enamored with but it works.
