LastPass makes multi-device access free for all – but there’s one tiny catch

Popular password manager LastPass is now 100% free across all desktop and mobile devices – well, sort of.

LastPass had previously offered a LastPass Premium subscription, which gave users the ability to sync all their passwords and logins across multiple devices.

That’s now a thing of the past, though, with LastPass making multi-device access and syncing free for all users.

Announcing the news on its blog, the company writes:

“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.”

There is a catch, however, in that in order to support the free service, LastPass will show ads for unpaid users, so the paltry $1 monthly fee might still be worth it.

Yeah, you never really had an excuse not to use LastPass anyways.

LastPass Premium will still operate, and as well as getting rid of ads, subscribers get a bunch of other useful features like 1GB of encrypted cloud storage, family sharing for up to five users, and the ability to use LastPass with apps as well as websites.

LastPass supports most of the main mobile and desktop operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X and macOS, Linux, iOS and Android.
