    The Lastpass password manager app can be used on a web browser, but does it work on apps? I'm sure it has been updated to the point where it can be, but I haven't tested because it requires a subscription to use.

    Does anyone out there use this app? I'd like to know what others have to say about it :p

    I have the app installed but I typically use it to copy/paste passwords when I need to

    Yes. You go into Lastpass, then copy your username/password to your clipboard, and then paste them into your app.

    To my knowledge no it does not. I seem to recall that they were working on developing to do that but I don't think they ever made it work. The problem is that it that it is pretty easy to identify login fields on a webpage in code. However it not as standardized or have the same hooks for an app, so it is a lot more difficult to do.

    I've been using Dashlane, a different password manager. A recent release added a sort of in-app capability in the form of a keyboard. When you have to enter text, the Dashlane keyboard is one of your choices, and it'll pull the login info from Dashlane and enter it for you. Problem is, other than that ability, it's a very basic keyboard, and switching to (and back from) it isn't that much easier than cut-and-pasting.

    I see.. so it's only copy & paste right now? I contacted their support and they insisted that it could be used alongside an app, but perhaps this is what they meant :/
