Lastpass is my favorite password manager on PC as well as mobile devices. The company also offers mobile apps, including Android, but they are only available for users with premium subscription that starts at $12 a year, which is nothing compared to the convenience you get with it.
Recently, Lastpass updated their Android app, bumping it to version 3.2, and introduces several new features and bug fixes for the app.
The latest update introduces autofill support for Android devices. Users can auto fill passwords in apps and Google Chrome, but they must be running Android 4.1 or higher for apps while for Google chrome, a user must be on Android 4.3 or higher for the autofill feature to work. Additionally, it came a few stability improvements, as well as a fix for close tabs getting reopened in browser.
As for the auto fill feature, when you will launch any app from the homescreen, Lastpass will show you a pop-up with the saved login credentials, and will ask you to select the desired one. “LastPass will detect the username and password fields. A pop-up will be displayed, prompting you to select a matching login that is stored in your vault.”
Here’s the complete change log of the latest Lastpass Manager Premium for Android:
- New: Fill into apps (Android 4.1+) and Chrome (Android 4.3+).
- New: App associations automatically downloaded, to help match apps to vault entries.
- Updated: Input method now uses app associations to improve matching with vault entries.
- Updated: You can now use a PIN up to 12 digits long.
- Fixed: Closed tabs getting reopened in browser.
- Fixed: Stability and usability improvements.
If you’re a Lastpass Premium subscriber and uses the Android app, head over to the Google Play Store and update the app.
