Change to Google Play policy may break Lastpass for Android

Postby aimhere » Thu Nov 16, 2017 10:20 pm

Seems Google has changed its Play Store policy, and is cracking down on developers who use Android's accessibility API for anything other than helping users with disabilities. Android developers will have to discontinue such usage or be banned from the Play Store. This will inevitably affect many "power user" tools, including LastPass, which uses the Accessibility API to fill forms in other apps:

I was wondering whether the LastPass devs have any kind of plan to deal with this?
