LastPass - First password manager extension on Microsoft Edge

Hey Windows 10 users, Microsoft is getting closer to releasing its big Windows 10 update this summer, but Windows Insider beta testers with the latest build have a new element to try out today. That's because LastPass has officially released its first browser extension for Edge (after it leaked out temporarily a week ago), saying it's the first password manager extension on the platform. Support for extensions is necessary if Edge will try to snag users from the Chrome or Firefox browsers they're used to, and after AdBlock, password management is a big one.

Using a password manager makes it easy to create and access unique passwords for all of your accounts and avoid a Zuckerberg-type situation or password reset emails from Netflix. According to LastPass, the Edge extension should have all the usual features users expect, with the ability to autofill login information, generate random passwords, and check their vault for duplicates. If you're not in the test program, you'll have to wait a little longer for extensions to arrive on Edge, but password managers like LastPass, 1Password and more are widely available across other browsers and mobile platforms if you want to try them out now. 

How to get it
LastPass for Edge is currently available for members of the Windows Insider Program, an opt-in program that allows Windows enthusiasts to secure early access to the Microsoft operating systems, hardware, and PC builds. The extension will be widely available to Edge users later this year.

If you’re already a part of the program, you can download it from the Microsoft store here: http://lastpass.tech/6002BsTdo
