Ok, after spending too much time trying various settings in the LastPass app, I discovered that there appears to be a browser built into LastPass that offers the functions I'm seeking (i.e., autofill for logins and capturing of new login credentials). It's unfortunate that this app is so poorly documented that users have to experiment with it to learn how to use even its most basic functions. So from what I can tell, if I want to have the login autofill and capture features, I must abandon the standard Android browser and use the LastPass browser instead. Is that correct?
So now how do i set the LastPass browser to be my default browser and how do I place an icon (or launch widget) for the LastPass browser onto my phone's app list screen. I don't want to have to launch the LastPass app everytime I wish to use the LastPass web browser. Ideally, I should be able to tap a browser icon on my phone's home page and have it automatically launch the LastPass browser. If I am not logged into LastPass, then when I launch the browser, it should prompt me to log in first (and then keep me logged in for a user-selected period of time). If I am already logged into LastPass, then when I launch the browser, it should present the PIN screen (if enabled in preferences) and then allow me to browse at will, auto-filling logins and capturing logins as on the PC version of LastPass.
If there is a way to do this, I would appreciate it if someone can explain how.
Also, it appears that the LastPass browser is not an extention of the standard Android browser: there does not appear to be a way to launch multiple windows, set and/or retrieve bookmarks (which is surprising considering LastPass's affiliation with Xmarks), or perform other basic functions (find on page, retrieve page info, etc.). I can't even find a way to manage the cache, history, and cookies in the LastPass browser. Am I missing something, or is the LastPass browser as it appears: very bare-bones? If the latter, is there a more full-featured browser I can use that will allow full integration of LastPass (login autofilling and capturing)?
