Microsoft Edge browser gets new LastPass extension, available now for Windows Insiders [Update]

When Microsoft announced availability of the first three extensions for its Edge web browser - as part of the release of Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14291 - it said that many more were on the way, including the likes of AdBlock, Adblock Plus, Amazon, Evernote, and LastPass.

The two ad-blocking extensions showed up earlier this month, and today, it's the turn of popular password manager LastPass.

As with the other Edge extensions released so far, the new one from LastPass is available only to Windows 10 users running the newest Insider Preview builds. Extensions support will be coming to all Windows 10 PCs as part of the Anniversary Update, which will be released this summer. However, it remains far from clear if Microsoft intends to offer extensions support for Edge on Windows 10 Mobile.

Windows Insiders can pick up the LastPass extension free from the Windows Store.

Update: Since this article was published, the minimum requirements for the extension have been changed on the Windows Store. Now, the listing states that users must have Windows 10 build 14359 to be able to install it - but that build isn't available yet; the most recent version to be released was build 14352 on Thursday.

It seems likely that the LastPass extension ended up in the hands of users sooner than originally planned, and that the revised requirements are an effort to prevent any more users from installing it.
