Latest news about LastPass
2016. Password manager LastPass is now free
LastPass, the password manager owned by LogMeIn, is making a core component of its service free. Before now users could access the the browser extension for free but had to pay a $12 annual fee to take their passwords with them on mobile. From now this feature is free. Free services will also now include two-factor authentication, password generation and sync, and access from unlimited devices. Basically, LastPass is now charging only for enhanced features rather than convenient access. The company also earns revenue from its enterprise offerings. LastPass says that the change is motivated by a commitment to bringing password security to the masses. But the pricing change might also be intended to lure users from other paid password management services.
2015. LogMeIn acquired password management service LastPass
Remote access software maker LogMeIn has acquired the online password management software maker LastPass for $110 million. LastPass, a competitor with Dashlane, 1Password, and others, offered a suite of tools to help users stay safe online. Its core product is a password management software application that helps you create strong, secure passwords for the websites you visit as well as keep other private information in “secure notes.” A native desktop application for OS X, released earlier this year, introduced a “Security Check” tool that let users quickly scan all their passwords to see if they were secured properly. The company also offers web browser extensions, and a mobile app.
2015. Password manager LastPass launches version for Mac
Password management service LastPass rolled out a new, native Mac application, which will offer users more native integration on OS X, while also introducing a number of new features, including instant logins, the ability to run security checks on your online accounts, and a fast search function. Apps like Dashlane, LastPass, 1Password and others are now often some of the first to get installed on users’ new computers or mobile devices, as consumers become increasingly aware of the threat hackers pose, even though, ironically, some of the most high-profile data breaches as of late, like those at Target, Staples and Home Depot, took place at stores’ point-of-sale, not online.
