Android Oreo lists approved password managers

New autofill functionality for Android Oreo promises a better password manager experience, but only if the apps meet certain criteria.

Secure info, remembered for you

Android is making a list of approved apps to easily and securely store and recall information that is repeatedly typed into apps and sites.

If you juggle a collection of social media and martech apps, this can be a significant convenience. A good password manager saves time and grants access on the go, even while keeping passwords and credit card numbers safe.

Approved apps

A list of approved password managers is available online and through ‘Settings’ > ‘Autofill service’ on Android devices. Android says the services that appear here meet its security and functionality requirements.

The list has four starters, including:

·      1Password

·      Dashlane

·      Keeper

·      LastPass

They’ll expand the list over time, as other providers are evaluated and approved.

Google too, for Android 8.0+

Android 8.0 (Oreo) was released in 2017. It runs on a bunch of current-gen phone, including Pixel, Nexus, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung and Sony.

Devices running 8.0 or later will also be able to integrate Google’s own password manager service. That’s the one that includes passwords and secure details saved via the Chrome browser.

Is a password manager a must have? What’s your preferred tool?
