LastPass Adds Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Scanning to App

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has only been available for a couple of weeks and yet we have our first developer (outside of Paypal) who has built-in support for the device’s fingerprint scanner. LastPass, a leader in password management, updated their Android app today to allow you to swipe your finger to authenticate within the app rather than having to type out your full master password.

If you have yet to walk through the steps needed to setup the fingerprint scanner on your Galaxy S5, be sure to check out our guide. Then think about picking up LastPass to securely sync passwords and form information from browser to smartphone.

    There was initially a bug where the grey fingerprint box appeared randomly over apps and onscreen keyboards in portrait orientation (for lots of different devices that don’t have fingerprint scanners) but LastPass patched it within 24 hours.

    Edit: PasswordBox totally did it first. Beat LastPass (at least to the announcement) by 5 days!

    Not sure who did it first, but LastPass certainly isn’t the only developer doing this.
    PasswordBox is even a direct competitor!

      Too bad nobody cares about passwordbox.

      • Josh Sleeper

        Which totally negates the fact that they did the same thing first?
        The only reason I posted is because the article said that LastPass was the “first developer (outside of PayPal” to integrate this feature.
        They weren’t.

    But will Verizon disable it somehow like they did with PayPal.

      I’m on Verizon. It works fine.

        Well then slap them thighs I am surprised they didn’t block it. They blocked PayPal since it oh wait, competes with ISIS. Tell me there isn’t an FTC complaint in there somewhere.
