Password manager LastPass today announced that all users are now able to sync their passwords across multiple devices for free, whereas previously the service's multi-device feature was locked behind its $1 per month subscription service. Now, users can gain access to their most secure sign-in information on a smartphone, tablet, desktop, or laptop using any of the company's free mobile and computer apps.

The new LastPass free plan works without any user input needed, so anyone who doesn't have the app downloaded can do so and begin using the service across all devices LastPass is available on. The $1 per month premium option is still available and includes exclusive features including family sharing with up to five users, no ads, priority tech support, 1GB of encrypted file storage, and more.

LastPass founder Joe Siegrist mentioned in a blog post that the company hopes the move makes it "easier for everyone to make good password habits," since it'll be much less of a hassle to create, store, and discover passwords.

From day one here at LastPass, we’ve been on a mission to help you simplify your online life, and make it a whole lot easier to achieve strong password security. 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. Because when you have a password manager that goes everywhere you do, you have a strong foundation for securing and taking control of your identity.

Besides the main LastPass iOS [Direct Link] and macOS [Direct Link] apps, the company has made its password managing service available to download as extensions on Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Opera web browsers.

Wow, major props to them. Not only was the premium service far cheaper than 1Password, but now for many personal users there will be no cost. I can't imagine why anyone would pay for 1Password's extremely expensive monthly subscription now. I thought about hopping on their 6 month trial, but decided against it because I knew that even if I ended up liking the product, there was absolutely no possible way for me to justify that monthly cost for what you get.

1Password is still available as a one time purchase. LastPass is not (free tier is ad supported).

My concern is how will they make enough money to keep lastpass sustainable now? You don't want them taking shortcuts on things like security because they can't afford to maintain best practices.

I agree. I've been a paying Premium subscriber for a few years now. I am now wondering why would I remain a paying subscriber? I can't be the only one that is planning to stop paying now...

It was all nice until they mentioned ads ... ads in the password manager app? It may not be a direct security risk, but still I would prefer a one-time purchase upfront instead o having to see ads while checking the all important password. This is one place where you don't want any distractions or unnecessary stuff popping up.

That's a big change and the free tier is ad-supported should be highlighted in the title. Essentially they are switching to ad-supported business model for their password app.


The $1 per month premium option ('https://lastpass.com/features_premium.php') is still available and includes exclusive features including family sharing with up to five users, no ads, priority tech support, 1GB of encrypted file storage, and more.
