There is now no excuse for failing to keep your passwords secure.
LastPass has announced it will no longer charge people for using its popular password management tool across multiple devices.
This means that for anyone who uses the free service can now access all their passwords from their desktop AND mobile device for no extra cost.
Previously, access to the service from multiple devices was only possible with a premium account, which costs $12 per year.
However, being able to access LastPass on multiple devices has now been included in its free pricing tier.
“Starting today, you can use LastPass on any device, anywhere, for free,” Joe Siegrist from LastPass wrote in a blog post.
“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,” he added.
This is great news for anyone who uses LastPass on their desktop and wants to extend their password security to their mobile device.
If you already use LastPass, then you are pretty much all set to go – you just need to download LastPass onto your smartphone or tablet and login to your password vault.
If you were already paying for LastPass Premium, you account will automatically be converted to a free account your subscription expires.
With that being said, LastPass Premium does offer a number of additional benefits including an ad free option, 1GB of encrypted file storage, group password sharing, priority customer support and additional two factor authentication.
If you’re unfamiliar with LastPass, the popular service offers a convenient and secure way of not only storing all your passwords in one place but also creating strong passwords on your behalf.
As well as generating passwords, it will also store them and fill forms and login details as you browse the web.
