Screwed over by LastPass new “free”, here are some alternatives

  • by

I am only going to run through the free versions in this post. I’m focused on Windows here.

I’ve used LastPass for about 5 years and loved it but I despise companies changing the goalposts after the fact for no real reason other than to try sell more. What people seem to forget about users on free plans, is that the are highly unlikely to pay and more likely to move when pushed by marketing nonsense.

I also won’t be back. How do you trust a company in future, that said one thing and did another?

Some of the “free” versions are useless

The following companies give too little too make their free versions of any use.

1Password – https://1password.com/sign-up/

No free offering.

Dashlane – https://www.dashlane.com/plans

Only 50 passwords in the free version.

Enpass – https://www.enpass.io/pricing/

20 passwords in the free version. Lifetime license is US$91.99 which might be worth looking at, especially if you can find a special.

Keeper – https://www.keepersecurity.com/en_GB/pricing-personal.html?t=p

Only a 30 day trial.

PassCamp – https://www.passcamp.com/pricing/

Only 15 passwords in the free version.

Those free password managers worth taking a look at

Bitwardern – https://bitwarden.com/pricing/
