I LOVE LastPass on the PC and also on my phone. But I absolutely HATE the fact that EVERY single time I open any web link from any app on my phone I must always choose between my default browser and the LastPass browser. This ranks as one of the top 3 most annoying problems on my phone right now. When I did a web search for this problem I was completely flabbergasted to learn that my exact problem verbatim was reported in this LastPass user support forum as early as THREE AND A HALF YEARS AGO! This is such a long running thread that the problem is freshly reported on average every 6 months for the past 3.5 years!

This does not work on my Android 4.4.2.
The "Clear defaults" button for LastPass app is disabled. And still, opening a link in another app offers LastPass as a browser.
I want this disabled. And I want this disabled now!
Seriously, I consider this a security issue.
It's an unwanted "resource" on a mobile device.
Therefore, it's bloatware.
And without knowing for a fact, I think it's only there for LastPass/LogMeIn to snoop into browsing habits. Go ahead and prove me wrong.

However, around mid- August of 2017 since an Android update, I've dealt with the same issue on my Blu phone, which I thought was spam at first, and it looks as though they removed whatever ability one had to disable LastPass Android from launching to a built-tin browser by default, along with revamping the main site that now has no "General" menu option.
I know that there was a major security breach earlier this year, that may have compelled LastPass Admin to make certain changes to keep their reputation intact; but I do not understand why they cannot give people a choice to take a risk in using thier own chosen browsers, particularly when the default browser pages launches to annoying sponsored sites like http://www.wowcoolwow.com, and http://www.zlnav.com, of which even blocking via Chrome's "content/cookies" or while using LastPass' own "Never URL" list option when on pc, does not stop. Downgrading apks doesn't help either, since the main program's menu has been changed.
LastPass was THE BEST for handling passwords ONLY, NOT for forcing their own built-in browsers on users as other password programs do as well and they should've kept it that way, because this seriously has me considering NOT renewing my annual premium membership in a few months.
