LastPass, one of the most popular password manager services, is now going to be much easier to use. The company revealed today that multi-device access is now free for all users, meaning you’ll now have access to your password locker on your desktop, smartphone, tablet and anywhere else the service is available, all for free.
LastPass, which was acquired by LogMeIn for $110 million in October 2015, stated today in a blog post that part of the reason for this new move was simply that the online world has changed dramatically since it first launched in 2008. Since that time, people connect to websites and services across a variety of devices and platforms, and LastPass wanted to make it easier for people to get protected access to those services.
The company also pointed out that there are still a lot of passwords that get leaked due to poor management. It stated:
The more convenient we make password management the better we will be able to solve this problem. We want our users to bring LastPass with them everywhere – including the workplace because accessing the sites, apps, and services you use every day doesn’t end because you checked in at the office.
LastPass stated that in the future, the company might even decide to eliminate typing in a master password so that users don’t need to remember anything. Will you be using this password manager more now that you can access it across all of your devices for no additional cost?
