How does Lastpass know the current URL in Chrome

Postby jonathanjohnston725559 » Mon Apr 08, 2019 2:17 am

When browsing around in Chrome for Android, Lastpass pops up with suggestions if it recognizes the URL as one you have associated login details with.

How does it know which URL Chrome is looking at? I know that Lastpass makes use of Accessibility Services, but I wonder how it queries the current URL from Chrome.

PS. Apparently it only works for Chrome (it doesn't pop up in official website Opera for example) so it might be something Chrome specific.
