    Enable inline autofill

    About this task: The new inline autofill offers a smoother autofill experience that is available in the mobile browser of your choice and it allows you to autofill your credentials without seeing a pop-up window over your login screen.
    Note: This feature is disabled by default. If your keyboard does not support inline autofill, even if the option is enabled, the system will fall back to the pop-up window solution. This feature is available only on Android 11 or newer versions.
    1. Open the app, then log in with your email address and master password.
    2. Select in the upper-left of the screen.
    3. Go to Settings > Autofill.
    4. Enable Use Inline Autofill.

    Results: Inline autofill for LastPass is enabled on your device.

    How is inline autofill different than the default autofill experience?

    About this task: Inline autofill offers your fill suggestions at the top of your keyboard while the default autofill shows a pop-up window over your login screen. Only one method can be enabled at a time. View a side-by-side comparison below:

    Use autofill

    Once enabled, you can use autofill for populating your login credentials within supported apps and websites.

    1. Open the LastPass app app, then log in with your email address and master password.
    2. Open your desired app or navigate to a website, then tap within a login field.
    3. Your autofill experience will be either of the following:
      • Automatic pop-up – LastPass will automatically pop-up a window containing matching Site credentials where you can tap to select your desired credentials.
      • Inline autofill - Your browser displays matching site credentials inline in a suggestion strip. Tap one of the suggestions to select your desired credentials.
      • Autofill with LastPass notification – If no pop-up appears, you can use the autofill notification to use autofill. From the top edge of your device, swipe down to access your Android notifications, then tap to select the Autofill with LastPass option and select your desired credentials. To use this feature, the Show autofill notification setting must be enabled.
        Note:  For devices running Android OS 8 (Oreo) or later, you can manually trigger the Oreo Autofill feature by long tapping a username or password field, then selecting Autofill from the context menu.
