Changes to Last Pass

Postby Executioner » Tue Feb 16, 2021 11:51 am

Got this email from the makers of Last Pass. I hope they don't screw this up since it's owned by Logmein. I do have Bitwarden installed also, but I haven't kept up with additions.

We're making some changes to LastPass Free
We love being a part of the security routines of more than 20 million users across the world. As our community continues to grow, we need to adapt our offerings to keep up with the constantly evolving digital world.

Beginning March 16, 2021, we will be introducing some changes to our LastPass Free experience, including how many device types free users will be able to use LastPass on (more details below).

Leading up to these changes, you can upgrade to Premium at a limited-time discounted rate of $2.25 per month, billed annually ($36 $27 /year).

Been using Sticky Password the past couple of years. One time license. I have it on three different computers in my home, and only let it sync between them locally.

Is there a mobile option? I access info in my LastPass notes, that I need from time to time when I'm away from home.

I believe so, but I don't use the mobile apps. It works for me, but to be honest it may not be the best option. I don't trust it (or anything) with things like bank and brokerage accounts - I never save those in anything but a secure encrypted text file and copy paste.

Been talking about other options with guys on Bluesnews recently, and they gave me these two open source recommendations:

Bitwarden
https://bitwarden.com/


Password Safe. This was designed by Bruce Schneier, who has some serious security cred, and probably what I'd look at for myself if I was going to switch.

Funny this discussion has come up again. Last year LastPass was discussed and I mentioned how things would get worse with them since they were bought out. I recommended Bitwarden. I've been using now for several years and actually pay for it.

So if anyone is thinking of getting away from LastPass, Bitwarden is a great choice.

I'm good for now since I only use LP on my pc's and not on my phone; however, if they screw with it any more, I'll have to switch.

I have to track so many passwords and secure info. Having to manage that all on just a phone is a pain in the ass. I love being able to work with my data in a desktop browser and then having it all available on my phone.

It's the same reason I bought an app named Paprika to store all my recipes. They have a windows app that I can use to add/edit all my recipes, but then in the kitchen I access them on a tablet.
