Legacy autofill working with accessibility is nonetheless available, which is handy for anyone outside the 1.1% of Android buyers on Oreo 8. or 8.1 — or for anyone who works by using Chrome, given that the browser nonetheless isn’t going to help Oreo’s autofill API.
The community beta supporting Oreo autofill in August was buggy, so LastPass transformed program in Oct and resolved to individual the tests into a individual beta app. This built it simpler to take a look at and get feed-back with out hampering the principal app. The individual LastPass beta app was recently up-to-date to put into action what we see in the stable version these days.
