There are excellent password managers on the market. I personally like 1Password very much but it has the “problem” of getting paid, although it is not a fortune. It works on several platforms and is very easy to use. The other major competitor is called LastPass and has a free variant for users. It is the bet of millions of people who want to ensure that they never forget a password on multiple devices. However, they decided to make a change and this is making many users angry.
LastPass changes rules and makes users totally furious!
Thus, LastPass announced that it will change the features attributed to the free version. In practice, they restricted access to the account to a device. This means that if you choose the smartphone as your favorite device you will not be able to view or change passwords on a computer. This rule takes effect from 16 March.
This company claims that it made this decision to keep abreast of a constantly evolving world. Whatever it is.
But then we will explain the issue of a device.
In reality, it is not just one, but a typology. Ie. Imagine that you choose to use smartphones as your preferred device. This means that you will be able to use LastPass among various mobile devices such as iPhone, Android, iPad, and smartwatches. That is, the mobile world. Out is the Windows, macOS, or Linux. However, you can choose exactly the opposite. If you prefer to use computers you have PCs and Macs. However, you will not be able to use it on mobile devices.
That said, you will even have to say which type of device you prefer in your LastPass account. However, there are still three opportunities to change. After that, you’re stuck with your choice forever. From there and if you want to upgrade to Premium plan, you have topay 3$. However, this amount is charged annually. That is 36$. The 1Password is practically the same price.
If you mostly use LastPass on just one type of device then this will not be a problem for you. However, if you are like me and use a password manager that is synchronized between mobile devices and the computer, then yes, you will have to update.
