So my LastPass Premium account is due for renewal this week, and I see that since last renewal they've doubled their price to $24 US. This still isn't too bad, and cheaper than many alternatives, but I have also noticed the free version of LastPass now has 'mobile sync' so wondered whether it was critical to still retain a Premium account.

 

I'm confused, by the website on which it is stated the free version can be accessed "on all devices", but on a number of other pages such as its blog site (eg this page) it states one is limited to using the app on a single category of device, eg any one of desktops, phones or tablets.

 

Does anyone know for sure how the free version works in relation to this? 

 

I need access across all device categories, so will happily pay for Premium if this is a requirement, but just wanted to be sure of the situation.

 

Thanks in advance.

Just wait for the day it is due and see if you can still do everything :P

 

I would also be interested to know if it can.

My premium expired last week, still seems to work OK on both windows 10, and IOS. 

 

I don't think password sharing works though (where you can share passwords between family members for example).

I've only had a free account; and I can use it across all my devices - Android, iPad, and web-browser.

I'd consider mine worth considerably more than $24 a year honestly.

surfisup1000: My premium expired last week, still seems to work OK on both windows 10, and IOS.

surfisup1000 is partly correct. Password sharing does work in the free version, but only one entry at a time. You can't share a whole folder of saved passwords.

 

Like jamesrt, I use my Lastpass account on Android, iOS and multiple browsers in Windows.

I renewed mine - don't use any features that the free version doesn't cover but how I see it is $24US is very little money and they deserve it.

OK thanks for clarifying. 

 

I was sharing a whole folder... no huge deal though. Will stay on free.
