One of the best password management apps out there, LastPass, has given everyone a reason to be happy: They have lowered their price to… free! The even better news, they haven’t stripped the app down to the barebones either. The free app now gives you the ability to sync your password and other secure content to your phone, PC, Chrome extension and tablet. To this point, that sync feature was part of the premium package for the app (which was a quite affordable $1/month).
From the company’s blog…
I’m thrilled to announce that, starting today, you can use LastPass on any device, anywhere, for free. No matter where you need your passwords – on your desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone – you can rely on LastPass to sync them for you, for free. Anything you save to LastPass on one device is instantly available to you on any other device you use.
If you have been looking for a password management app, you need to seriously consider LastPass as an option.
The company will continue to offer a premium service for those who want it and it is still only $1 per month. That premium
service gives you some additional features over the free version:
- Family Sharing up to 5 users
- Ad Free
- Yubikey & Sesame 2 Factor Options
- Priority Tech Support
- LastPass for Apps
- Desktop Fingerprint Recognition
- 1GB of encrypted file storage
If you need these additional features, you can subscribe within the free app once you have it installed. If you are already a premium customer, you will automatically get access to the new set of premium features.
The sync feature across devices will be handy for those with phones, tablets and of course PCs. But this feature also works across platforms like iOS and Android or Windows Phone. Once you have your account, it goes to all of your devices.
You can download the app in the Play Store and give it a go.
