LastPass is a terrific free* (mostly) password manager that we’ve talked about before here on WeTalkNerdy.tv. If you’re not using a password manager, you probably should be. I use LastPass and I swear by it. Now it’s even better. Thanks to a recent update, “The LastPass app for Android now autofills logins for your mobile apps, as well as websites in Chrome for Android.”
From the LastPass blog: “Note that the new feature is available for apps on devices running Android 4.1 and later, and for Chrome on devices running Android 4.3 and later. Note that on Android 4.1 and 4.2, LastPass cannot autofill into apps, and will show copy buttons instead, and some apps may require that you manually paste the data.
So what makes this new functionality so awesome? It brings the same LastPass experience you’re used to on the desktop to all of your mobile apps and Chrome. When you launch a mobile app, LastPass can now detect that a username and password field are shown, and hover with a prompt for you to select a matching login. The new functionality eliminates more typing and tapping, making the mobile experience that much more fluid.”
*LastPass is free for desktop browsers, but the mobile app is $1.00 / month. Well worth it in my opinion. The first month is free, so you can try before you buy.
