Just a quick update for Samsung device owners who, like me, found that the LastPass app fill was unable to fill any passwords after the very exciting 3.2 update. The latest version 3.2.3, which just popped up on the Play Store, specifically addresses this bug:

What's New

v3.2.3

Fix app fill on Samsung devices. Please contact our support staff if you still have issues.

I've confirmed that the fix indeed works by successfully logging into both the Amazon app and the Amazon site in Chrome Beta on my Note 3:

Hooray!

Unfortunately, the Nexus 5 Chrome fill is still plagued with another bug that prevents it from working completely and results in very odd behavior. I'm hoping this one is on their TODO list next:

Update: Looks like this is a compatibility issue with EverClip, which I've just reported to its developer.

    I had to turn off the feature on my Nexus 5. It was causing some horrible lag and the home/back buttons would sometimes become totally unresponsive. I could click them but nothing happened. I have my back button setup for long click kill, and when I do it it kills lastPass and everything starts working fine for a little bit.

      Scrolling in any app is sadly extremely choppy with the new feature enabled on my Nexus 5.

        I wouldn't say "extremely" but yeah, it's choppier with LP enabled. N5 here as well.

    Now that Password Box and LastPass are touting some very comparable features, I'd like to see an in-depth comparison :)

    There was woe but now there is Rejoicing!

    edit: maybe not working for me, lets see if a reboot helps

    Looks like my Chrome problems on the N5 were related to EverClip after all. Post updated.

      Could you please elaborate on that? How is EverClip interfering with LastPass? EverClip only monitors the clipboard, right? Or is it doing something else?

      I am running the stable release of Chrome and EverClip. Password entries are not working for me in Chrome or other in-app logins. Also, LastPass keeps asking me to enter lastpass's password every time I unlock my phone, even though I had selected "Do not prompt for 24 hours" the last time.

        It does what I have up there in the screenshots when I try to fill in Chrome instead of working. I think Clipboard monitoring messes it up somehow.

    Never a problem on my Galaxy S3.. but I guess that's because I left TouchWiz behind a long time ago. This is why the OEM customizations have got to go.

  • A2theC

    LOL, that makes sense, I thought it just didn't work because I haven't paid for premium!

    Speaking of premium, who wants to signup and get both of us a free month!
    (An extra month for every referral, this would be my first!)(Seriously)

    Ah, the long desired feature finally arrived! 1 dollar/month is totally worth it, even if the money is made here in the sweat factory in China LOL

    Bugs with LastPass makes the HTC M8 camera force close, if you disable auto login, it should work
