Reduced functionality of the free version of password manager’Last Pass’

Brad Chacos | PCWorld

Password managers should be used by everyone, and LastPass is considered one of the best password managers. However, one of the best strengths of Last Pass is expected to disappear. Currently, even free users can use the Last Pass on’all’ devices, but as of March 16, they can only use one type of device, such as a computer or mobile, for free. If you want to use the password stored in LastPass on both your laptop and mobile phone, you need to use a premium account for a fee.

Unfortunately, it’s not terribly shocking. Rather, it is surprising that the Last Pass was available for free on all devices for such a long time. Competitive service Dashlane allows only one device to be used for free, but LastPass is limited to computers or mobiles even under the changed policy.

LastPass said, “Free users who log in after March 16th must select the device type. You can change the device type up to three times.”

If you select a device type, there is no limit to the number of devices in that type. In other words, if you select a computer, you can synchronize the Last Pass on multiple computers, and if you select a mobile device, you can use the Last Pass. However, you have to pay to sync both your computer and mobile.

Most users living in today’s’multi-screen’ environment will use the LastPass premium plan. The price of $3 per month is not very burdensome, and it gives existing users a discount of $2.25 per month for a limited period. [email protected]
