The new business practices are too aggressive, and they pushed me away. LogMeIn lost its chance at converting me into a paid user.
The monthly cost is outrageously high — it's laughable. LastPass is only worth about $5, at best, but only as a one-time fee — certainly not a subscription.
If LogMeIn wants to provide a service, it would be reasonable to pay a subscription fee. As far as I'm concerned, LastPass is a product, not a service. Paying a subscription fee to unlock features that were once free feels like highway robbery. Instead of providing new features or improving the existing product, LogMeIn artificially devalued LastPass just to resell it at a premium. It's a slap to the face of loyal users.
Restricting the use of LastPass to a single platform (desktop or mobile) is another major weak point. It's impractical to only use one or the other. Restricting the user's platform does more to harm their security than it does to help it. All of my passwords were generated by LastPass, and all of them are too long and complicated to remember. If a user can't afford the premium fee, their only other choice is to change their account passwords (on the other platform) to something shorter and easier to remember. Is LogMeIn trying to encourage free users to use weak, less-secure passwords? It sure looks like it. This business move is remarkably brazen and reckless. It's insulting.
Does LogMeIn regard long-time LastPass users as a flock of simpletons? How much of an imbecile do they think we are? LogMeIn's new business decisions reek of corporate greed. I, for one, refuse to be taken advantage of. LastPass is not the only option available. There are comparable products out there, with the same functionality (or better), which can be had at no cost. I'm going to follow the thousands of other users — that LogMeIn ran away — to a different product, run by a company that isn't so shortsighted.
It was good while it lasted, but it was a catastrophic disappointment thereafter. Farewell, LastPass. I'm off to the greener pastures of Bitwarden and KeePass.

What's the point in a password manager that only works on my phone OR my computer? Those long, complex, unreadable secure passwords aren't any use to me when they don't sync between PC and mobile and aren't accessible at all on half of my devices. I've switched to Bitwarden and it's awesome, they even have a guide for migrating from LastPass.
