LastPass Makes Mobile App Free For Users

August 11, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

If you’re someone who keeps a lot of passwords, password management is something worth considering so you don’t have to attempt at always remembering every single one. With all of the accounts most of us have these days logging in can end up being a little bit chaotic. LastPass has been a solution for people to keep and manage their passwords for all of their accounts in one place for a while now, offering access on both mobile and desktop platforms to users to give convenience so you could use the service wherever you needed it most. Today LastPass is announcing that they’re making a small but likely appreciated change to the mobile app for anyone who is an existing or new user.

Today LastPass’ mobile app transitions to free, meaning you’ll no longer have to pay a fee to use it. This is in addition to the already free usage that people were given if they used LastPass on desktop. Now, no matter where you might use it most the annual $12 charge is gone. There is one caveat though if you plan on using the service on your mobile devices and on the desktop platform. Cross-platform usage will still cost users a certain amount. If you like the idea of free and want to stick with it, you’ll have to pick a platform to stick with as well, or end up forking out the cost of cross-platform usage.

As far as the costs go, LastPass still offers the same price for a premium account, which is $12 a year if you want the ability to use it from any device/platform you wish including smartphones, tablets and desktops. In addition to the LastPass premium option for users, they also have one for businesses called the Enterprise package which doubles the annual cost from $12 to $24, and is also a per user cost meaning you’ll be paying $24 a year for each person who you want to manage passwords for. LastPass also offers a 14 day trial of premium for anyone who starts using on one platform and wants to try it out on the other. If you’re interested in checking it out you can grab the app from the Play Store.
