LastPass can now be used on an unlimited number of devices for free
Keeping track of all your passwords is no easy task. You've got your Google account, Facebook login, Twitter profile, Hotmail address you use for Microsoft Office, and so many more. We could go on for hours listing all of the different services that you likely have an account for, but at the end of the day, the main takeaway is the fact that there are a lot of sites out there that you need to remember different passwords for. You could go the route of only using one or two passwords for all of your accounts, and while this may make things a bit more convenient, it compromises your security a great deal.
Services such as LastPass aim to offer tools that help you keep track of all of your passwords for every online account that you have, and they do so in a manner that gives you as much security and protection as possible. LastPass was originally launched all the way back in August of 2008, and it has since grown to be one of the most popular and widely-used password managing services out there. LogMeIn acquired the company in October, 2015, and just about a year ago from that date, the company has made an announcement that drastically changes the way the service is run.
Starting today, free users of LastPass will be able to now use the service to access their passwords on an unlimited number of devices. This is something that was previously exclusive to LastPass Premium subscribers, and according to LastPass's Founder and Vice President Joe Siegrist, "By offering LastPass for free across all your devices, we're making it that much easier for everyone to make good password habits the norm."
LastPass Premium users will still retain exclusive access to priority customer support, sharing of passwords with up to 5 family members, two-factor authentication, and 1GB of encrypted file storage. The inclusion of unlimited device syncing for free users is a big move for LastPass, and it's one that should hopefully bring a lot more users to the service. However, if you would like to gain access to all of the additional features that LastPass Premium comes equipped with, the subscription costs just $12/year.
