Your fingerprint unlocks LastPass on the Galaxy S5

On any other phone, you'd have to type in the master password to access all your other passwords stored on LastPass -- including the iPhone, where Touch ID gets you into your phone and iTunes account, but stops there. But on Samsung's Galaxy S5, all you need to do is swipe your finger across the home button, now that the password manager's Android app has been updated to work with the device's biometric scanner. To set that up, you'll first need to type in your credentials like everyone else, and then activate fingerprint authentication for future use. It'll be a lot faster to add or change entries with the feature in place, and in some ways, fingerprint authentication is more secure than using a complex master password. We just hope you have no bitter enemies that'll go as far as to make a fake finger to sabotage your digital life.
