Tech News Today: Episode 1633 (Video)

LastPass just gave you another reason to protect your accounts with a password manager. Because it is free. The LastPass payment structure has always been a bit confusing, and their purchase by the company LogMeIn hasn’t changed that. In the consumer version you could use the browser extension for free, but if you wanted to use LastPass on a phone or a table, you had to pay an annual subscription fee. Now, that $12 fee is gone for generating complicated passwords and storing them across all of your devices. If you want to pay for LastPass Premium you’ll get family sharing for up to five users, 1GB of encrypted file storage, YubiKey and other two-factor login integrations, desktop fingerprint identification and LastPass for applications. Hosted by Megan Morrone, Owen JJ Stone.
