LastPass for Android BETA

We are pleased to announce the beta release of LastPass for Android! LastPass for Android is an application that allows you to access and edit your LastPass data from a Google Android smartphone. It also features a built-in browser that will automatically fill your login information for each of your saved LastPass sites.

To install, simply open Android Market on your phone, and search for LastPass. Or if you're already browsing this on your phone, simply click here.

LastPass for Android is still in an early beta stage, and as such, we'd love to hear comments from our users on how we might be able to improve and extend it.

Like our BlackBerry and Windows Mobile applications, this application is a part of our LastPass Premium offering. You will be able to try LastPass for Android for free for 14 days, but you must become a LastPass Premium subscriber to continue using it after that.

Password Fatigue and LastPass

John Kelly of the Washington Post had an amusing article today about how much trouble it is to create a new password every 90 days:
So Many Passwords, So Little Time

Hopefully John will find LastPass and put these troubles behind him -- using LastPass' Password Generator he'd be able to specify that uppercase, lowercase, numbers and special characters are required; generate it with a click and never have to remember what it was. LastPass takes care of the rest.

The title actually speaks to the exact problem LastPass solves: one last password to remember and you can forget all the others.
