Up until now the Samsung Galaxy S5's fingerprint scanner was good for two things: unlocking the phone and paying with PayPal. Granted that's one substantial thing more than Apple's Touch ID on the iPhone 5s, but that still was a little limited. But Samsung had opened access to that scanner, and now password manager LastPass supports fingerprint swiping too.
After logging in within the LastPass app on your Galaxy S5, when prompted for a password or PIN, all you have to do is swipe down over the fingerprint scanner to have LastPass fill it in for you. It's that easy.
PayPal is nice. Unlocking your phone is good. Swiping to enter your password… that's pretty damn awesome.
LastPass for Android version 3.2.13 is available now for download from Google Play.
