    LastPass Free is a changing

    https://blog.lastpass.com/2021/02/ch...lastpass-free/

    Not so convinient only being able to use it on mobile and desktop, basically a show stopper. I have been pondering a family subscription if I can convince anyone else to use it!

    Stump up on move on? Ammusing search results for "password manager", PC Mag rates it as best for free users...

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I have found lastpass by far the easiest password manager to use. Always had a feeling this would happen sooner or later.

    I do use it on my mobile as well so not sure whether to get the premium version or take another look at other offerings.

    I do have kaspersky password manager full version around somewhere, but if I remember didn't find it as good to use. Might need to look again

    This was exactly the fear people have using a password manager, that they'll turn round and force you to pay once you're embedding using the system. Now people will be less trustful of any other manager and will go back to insecure password re-use. Poor move for security all round

    Yeah I got the notification today. I'll probably stump up as I find it invaluable.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I mean it'll be a half an hour job to extract all the random passwords into a new system - not the end of the world.

    Could have given more than a months notice though...

    My thoughts exactly, you use their system and rely on it... claiming it's free and once you're there for ages pull this. Especially as more and more people use it on multiple devices... guess I better go back to manual password management... in case they go further. And yep, this has destroyed any trust that a similar company won't pull this kind of action.

    Also, I haven't seen any notification! I tend to Ignore Lastpass emails, so thanks @jimbouk for the heads up.

    Edit: So I've only used it on PC so far, but I was planning to use it on get passwords on my Tablet. Or you know, if I needed to login from work that uses a different type of device (as far as Lastpass is concerned) So much for that convenience.

    Edit2: So I was thinking... we could go back to the old fashion way and write passwords down in a book. After all what does Lastpass actually offer for around $27 a year? A random number & text generator AND a place to save them online!

    Edit3: At least they have a csv export feature. For a sec I thought you needed to do this bit manually.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I have over 300 passwords, I don't want to write them down in a book I can tell you especially as they are like &£@:x7WRxc&d03Sx2£$$ etc

    There are cheaper alternatives and free ones still, I would prefer if it was a once only fee though but like everything else seems to be a yearly sub :/ You do get some extra features like dark web monitoring

    Kaspersky is £10.49 for the first year

    But almost all password managers are paid for now, most have a free version which is limited in someway.

    I do spend most of my time on a PC so it wouldnt be the end of the world not to use it on a mobile.

    However there might be a way around it, not brilliant but ok if you have your passwords already set up. Just create a second lastpass account and import your "main" account into it and then you have all your passwords and when you add a password to the "main" account just add it to the mobile as well.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    You may want to consider KeePass (most likely the 2.xx series). A quick search found an article on migrating to KeePass from LastPass if you're interested.

    On the Download page you can also find Contributed/Unofficial ports for other systems not already covered by KeePass itself, and you can also find Plugins and Extensions for it.

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    Hmmm.

    About a month ago, I finally gave in to temptation and started to test Lastpass with a view to moving from the long-abandobed manager I was using. And now this.

    Fortunately, I got diverted on to a couple of other things and only have about 4 items in it. I'll take me about a minute with a pen and notebook to "export" from Lastpass. Then ....

    I am also going to stick with lastpass but will create a 2nd account for use on the mobile and just import what I have into it. It will cover 99% of everything I use

    We have this at work and it's pretty clunky on desktop. Will take another look though.

    Cunning maybe a good bridging service before making a decision where to go - the time migrating to another provider could just be used to copy to another account. I don't tend to keep cookies so it's good to be able to autocomplete passwords easily on all devices. New passwords would be the issue, just have to be careful.

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean by it being clunky, but it's possible that it would mean you'd prefer KeePassXC's version (although you can't use Plugins and Extensions with that).

    Another password manager that got recommended to me is Bitwarden. It appears to be free and open-source. Anyone have any experience with this?

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I don't suppose anybody knows how LP classify an MS Surface Pro? I mean I use it more or less as a desktop replacement but sitting on my lap. Which might make it a laptop, but then, it's nearly always (or always) used at home, on my network. It's just a PC in a very lightweight format. Unless I disconnect the KB and port replicator, which I usually don't.

    But even then, it has no cellular link so is probably even less of a mobile device than it is not quite a desktop. I guess I can use it as a tablet, which is really a PC with a touch screen, not running Android, iOS, etc.

    And what about a Windows laptop? Still not iOS or Android, or whatever.

    Hardware-wise, the lines are very blurred. Do they classify a device as desktop or mobile by whether it uses a "mobile" OS? In which case, my laptop and semi-tablet Win-OS based Surface Pro are both desktops .... which would surprise MS and Dell, I'm sure.

    Colour me confused?

    Re: LastPass Free is a changing

    I'm guessing they mean if you use an app (iOS or Andriod) to access LastPass its a 'mobile' device.

    Browser extension then it's essentially a 'desktop' device.
