  • Open the Settings app
  • Tap Passwords & Accounts
  • Tap Autofill Passwords

2. Save new accounts easily

If you login to a site or app that isn’t already saved to your vault, there is an easy way to save it from the mobile login screen.

Simply tap the password field and you’ll see the word “Passwords” come up over your keyboard. When you tap “Passwords” the LastPass screen will come up. Use your Touch ID or Face ID to authenticate and you’ll be in your vault.

Tap the + button at the top right corner. From there you can enter your username and passwords. Tap “Save”. Once you hit “Save”, you will be taken back to the login screen of the app or site and your credentials will be filled in for you.

Next time you visit that site or app, your credentials will autofill. Even if you visit the site on your laptop, it will autofill –because all LastPass data is synced between devices.

3. Generate secure passwords

With LastPass, you no longer have to remember your passwords. This means you can create strong and unique ones for each account. Instead of trying to come think of complex passwords on your own, the best option is to use the password generator.

From the LastPass app, simply click the security tab at the bottom of the screen. From there you will see the password generator option. The password generator lets you pick the length of password. And if you click “Options” you can choose what types of characters you want in your password or you can even make it a pronounceable password.

4. Save items to your vault directly from your camera roll
