LastPass Password Manager
Password Managers are increasingly being used for the security benefits it offers. LastPass is one of the trusted password managers available today. It is now being updated to make it more enticing for the customers. It will now not charge extra to access your password vault from different types of devices. Yes, you read it right. The password manager now offers multi-device access for free.
Free Multi-Device Access
Previously, there was also a free LastPass account option where one can create, store and organize their passwords on a single device. But, the problem was that the only way to sync a computer and a phone is to purchase a premium subscription. Today, most people own multiple devices and it is not possible for them to access multi-device without buying the subscription. But from now onwards, the syncing across multiple devices is free.
The blog reads, “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.” “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,” wrote Joe Siegrist, Founder of LastPass.
How to Get the Feature
If you are currently a user, you can get access to the new feature instantly. Also, it will work in same way across all the devices such as the ability to save and fill out passwords, secure notes, two-factor authentication and lots more. So, the feature which used to cost $12/a year for LastPass is now free.
Premium Exclusive Features
For those who are premium users will continue to enjoy other paid benefits. These benefits include priority tech support, share folders with up to five users, advanced 2FA functionality for devices, save desktop application passwords, 1GB of encrypted file storage and an ad-free experience.
The free version of the LastPass app comes loaded with ads but premium subscribers enjoy an ad-free experience. It is noteworthy that password managers do provide additional security but are not 100% breach-proofs and can be potentially hacked.
