LastPass may be one of the most popular password managers, has announced that starting from March 16, the free tier of LogMeIn’s LastPass Password Manager will be limited to one device per user as the company seeks to force people to migrate to a subscription plan.
Currently, free users can use the service on all their devices, and as per new changes in the platform, to access Lastpass on multiple devices, you will need to switch to one of the company’s premium plans, which currently includes a $36/year individual plan (available for $27/year for a limited time) and $48/year family plan.
Although there are no structural changes beyond the new business model, as of March 16, the first device you log in to will determine which group of devices you will use, although you can change groups up to 3 times to check which one is best suited to your use.
If you use LastPass only on mobile devices or only on computers, this change should not affect you.
The company confirmed that the password vault would be available to everyone, no matter if you choose PC or mobile. “All your devices are automatically synced, so you will never lose access to anything stored in your vault, or your account will be locked out,” the company said.
