LastPass for Android has a custom input method that you can use to log in to apps on the Android! For Android OS 4.1+ we suggest using the Android App Fill Window feature instead.
Things to note for using this feature:
- Please note that sites that require a Master Password re-prompt cannot currently be selected for autofill within the input method. This will include all sites if you have “Prompt for LastPass master password when: Log into a Site” checked in Account Settings.
- This Input Method cannot “see” into other browsers. We suggest using the LastPass browser within the Android App for the best experience for autofilling. But if you are using this method to fill into a website in another mobile browser, please note that you will need to “Switch to Groups” in most all cases as LastPass cannot match the URL to your Vault as this information cannot be grabbed from the site through a 3rd party browser.
- If the Input Method is unable to detect the login for your app and shows, “No Matching Sites”, select the [Switch to Groups] option. This will show you the list of the groups in your Vault where you can then navigate to the specific entry and select “Fill” to autofill your username and repeat the steps to fill your password.
To use this feature, you’ll first need to create a manual login to the app in LastPass if you don’t have an entry for it or a corresponding site. In most cases, you’ll just need the username and password to be able to log in. The next step is to Enable the LastPass Input Method via your LastPass Preferences AND your Android Keyboard Settings:
After checking this option in your LastPass Preferences, you’ll automatically be taken to your Android Keyboard settings, where you can enable the LastPass Input Method:
Now, you’re ready to log in to apps using LastPass. Go to the app login screen that you’d like to log in to. Once there, tap into the text field. You must pull down the notifications menu instead (where it has the “Wi-fi, bluetooth, etc). There should be the option in that menu that brings up the “Select input method” option where you can select the LastPass Input Method:
Go back to the Login Screen and you should now see the LastPass input method with the LP icon in the keyboard options:
Hit the LastPass AutoFill button to see a list of your logins:
Then, select the appropriate login, and hit the Fill button. You will have to do this in both the username field and the password field to fill each:
Your app logins will be autofilled, and you’ll be able to quickly and easily log in to your Apps!
