LastPass, the popular password management solutions today announced that the service will now be available for free on mobile devices, including Windows Phone. Users who sign up for the program will now be able to use the service for free, without having to subscribe to the company’s premium service, known as LastPass Premium. The company stated:
Now, if you get started with LastPass on your Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone, you’ll have completely free access from your smartphone, and can even sync across smartphones for free. The same is true for tablets, if that’s where you get started.
We want to ensure that LastPass is accessible for all users, including mobile-only users who need help managing their passwords and apps. Wherever you get started, you can use LastPass on that device, and any others of the same device type – desktops, smartphones, or tablets – for free!
This is indeed great news for users who don’t want the premium features which the company’s Premium service offers. Keep in mind that you can still get LastPass Premium to get more features for $12 per year.
However, if you’ve already signed up for LastPass Premium’s trial, your trial will be cancelled and you’ll be able to use LastPass with your device. The company also states that current Premium, as well as free users can continue using its service without any changes:
Current free and Premium users can continue using LastPass without any changes, while new LastPass users can choose where they want to get started for free. If you’ve just signed up for LastPass from your smartphone or tablet, and therefore started a Premium trial of the app, the trial will be cancelled and you’ll be able to continue with a free account on that device and any other device of the same type.
If you’re a LastPass user, are you glad that that company is making its service free to use on your Windows Phone? Discuss in the comment section below.
