Heads Up for free LastPass Users

Changes to LastPass Free: https://blog.lastpass.com/2021/02/changes-to-lastpass-free/

We’re making changes to how Free users access LastPass across device types. LastPass offers access across two device types – computers (including all browsers running on desktops and laptops) or mobile devices (including mobile phones, smart watches, and tablets). Starting March 16th, 2021, LastPass Free will only include access on unlimited devices of one type.

Re: Heads Up for free LastPass Users

i have never understood why anyone would want to save all their passwords in a single app and rely on that for online security.  Seems to me it introduces a single point of weakness when the app credentials are cracked giving the miscreant access to every password held within it.

My thoughts too.  Particularly bank, gas, electric, water, telecoms, wifi lights, google, apple, social(?) media etc....  Convenience over security...
