LastPass is one of the most popular password managers out there. And today it’s introduced some significant changes to how its freemium app model works.
LastPass has announced that their services are now free for mobile users and it will be available on iOS, Windows Phone and Android. Bu there’s something more.
From this point on, you’ll be able to use LastPass for free on the class of device you’ve signed up on. So, new users who get started on a smartphone will be able to use the app for free, not only on that smartphone, but on any other smartphone they may own – with password syncing between them built-in.
With this, LastPass is now free for smartphones or tablets or desktop.
All of the above applies only to new users. Existing users will see nothing change in the way they are able to take advantage of LastPass. Essentially, existing users are thrown into the “got started on a computer” category, so use (and syncing) between computers is free, while for everything else you need to pay.
