LastPass finally gets Oreo’s autofill support

LastPass

One of the standout features with Android Oreo was the new API that allowed an autofill call to be made by apps. The natural application to this was password managers that would be able to detect a form field and lookup credentials and share it with that app.

LastPass began integrating the support for the Oreo autofill back in August but the app is now ready to publish the feature in the full stable version of the app as of today. LastPass keeps its accessibility-based autofill to cater for, let’s face it, a majority of other devices that don’t have Android Oreo.

We are very pleased to introduce support for the new Android Oreo autofill feature, for devices running Android 8 and later. You can enable this new feature in the Autofill settings page. The original accessibility-based autofill is still available as well, and it can help fill apps that are not yet compatible with the new autofill feature. Please use the support feedback channels to let us know how well this works for you, so that we can continue to improve it in future releases!

In the latest version of LastPass (4.4.1749) you’ll find support for autofill and you can turn it on by going to Settings > Autofill if you’re running Oreo.

LastPass also has the ability to recognize addresses and credit card forms to fill in the appropriate data but these features are still in beta and are turned off by default in the settings.

You can grab the latest version of LastPass to try it out for yourself here.
