A Change to LastPass Premium

3 Comments

For over a decade, we’ve been dedicated to providing you with a powerful solution that makes it easy to manage your passwords and protect your digital life.  

Starting today, LastPass Premium will be $36 per year for new customers. For existing users, your subscription will renew at the new $36 list price.  

In addition to our Premium offering, our personal lineup also includes LastPass Families, which provides 6 licenses of LastPass for $48. This allows you to share LastPass with up to 5 other people – a great way to protect your loved ones! With Families, you can store and share passwords for entertainment sites, medical accounts and credit cards, and organize them into folders by family member or type of account so everyone has the access they need.  

In today’s age of ever-changing security threats, the value of a best-in-class password manager cannot be overstated. LastPass helps all customers create unique, strong passwords for every account, and store them in a secure vault, keeping you safe from 3rd party breaches. Our LastPass security challenge and password generator help you identify weak or reused passwords and create new strong ones. LastPass also helps prevent successful phishing attempts by only filling in your credentials on authentic websites.  

In addition to standard LastPass features like a secure vault, autofill on sites and in apps, password sharing, and free syncing across devices, LastPass Premium offers exceptional features that are becoming more and more necessary in today’s digital landscape. These features allow you to:   

  • Share passwords with anyone: Premium lets you share passwords, notes and other vault items with multiple people to give everyone convenient but secure access.  
  • Protect yourself in an emergency: Make your account – and all your digital assets – safely available to another LastPass user of your choice.  
  • Ensure fast, reliable support: We know our Premium customers are very engaged with LastPass and often have questions to ensure they’re getting the full value out of the product. We push our Premium customers’ support tickets to the top of the queue.  
  • Protect your account with advanced MFA options: Take security to the next level with multi-factor through Yubikey, Sesame, and laptop fingerprint authentication. 
  • Have room to store everything: Backup and store encrypted files, like tax returns, passports, photo IDs, and membership cards with 1 GB of encrypted file storage.  

We’re continually working to evolve our product and meet our customers’ digital security needs. This past year, production improvements have included things like a better mobile autofill experience no matter the user’s mobile operating system and increased security by offering a wider breadth of advanced multifactor authentication options, such as YubiKey for iOS and Microsoft Authenticator.  

As always, we are truly grateful for your loyalty and continued support which allows us to drive innovation and bring you a product that you love.

sure, make everything more expensive while neglecting eg the browser plugins and having frequent server issues. Good thing I was moving to Bitwarden anyhow: cheaper, open source and possibility to self-host!

After many years with LP, I just dumped them for 1password myself. (Just because their software is in rough shape. I was using LP for free and now I'm paying for 1P and it's great lol)

When they were bought by LogMeIn I expected this - not just the immediate price increase but additional ones, because that's how LogMeIn works (see previous years increases for the main product and GoToMyPC) - repeated doubling or tripling of prices.

Stinginess of the Day: Philedelphia Eagles Running Back LeSean McCoy tips .03% on a $60 Tab

Stinginess of the Day: Philedelphia Eagles Running Back LeSean McCoy tips .03% on a $60 Tab

The owner of the restaurant offered a statement, via Business Insider: Insider:

I would like to address the LeSean McCoy tipping situation and our role in it.
For starters, I take total and complete responsibility for sharing this receipt. It was not our server's decision, it was mine. I am to blame.
I decided to take action after some serious thought. And while I'd like to apologize to Mr McCoy, I cannot in good conscience do so. I stand by my actions one hundred percent.
Mr McCoy and his three companions came into my place on Monday afternoon, and immediately the whole staff was excited. Mr McCoy is a skilled athlete and is one of our beloved Philadelphia Eagles. A true Philly legend and a sports hero. Understandably my staff was really pumped, especially on the heels of they terrific win the day before. (Go Eagles!).
Mr McCoy and his friend sat inside at a booth next to my management and next to me. They were given excellent service. Impeccable service. If anything, our server was a little nervous as was our food runner, because they are big, big fans.
He and his group, from the moment they sat down, were verbally abusive to our staff in the most insulting ways. The derogatory statements about women and their sheer contempt for the staff serving them wasn't the end, however. After Mr McCoy and his group left I looked over and saw their server, my friend, with his head bowed down and with a very confused look on his face. I took the receipt out of his hand and I couldn't believe that anyone could be so callous. Mr McCoy had left a .03% tip for our staff. Our staff that was beyond excited to see him walk into our burger joint and was excited to serve him. That's twenty cents on a tab of over $60. Twenty cents that our server has to split with the food runner and the bartender. Two dimes from an insulting multimillionaire.
I bet Mr McCoy is usually an awesome dude. And everyone has their bad days. But I'm from Philly and have had the pleasure of meeting many of our bad ass sports heroes. Ron Jaworski I met as a kid and I love. Iverson I loved. Mike Schmidt! You name 'em. I love all of our athletes past and present. Hometown heroes who treat those below them with some respect. And maybe Mr McCoy was having a "bad day" after his big victory all that, but the reports of him receiving "bad service" is a complete slanderous lie, and my crew here is better than that and deserves better than that.
At the end of the day, I did what I felt my heart told me to do. And I don't want anything from Mr McCoy, but...maybe an apology to his server who gave him excellent service would be cool.
Again, I am the owner and I take full responsibility for my actions. Eagles fans, I feel ya. Id be pissed too. But a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do and stick up for his friends.
Hate mail should be directed to tommy@pytburger.com. I will respond to you right after I catch up on this mornings hate mail.

Of course, he could also just decide to give his staff a decent wage, so they aren't dependent on tips...

Snowden a ‘Traitor’: Andreessen

4 Comments and 6 Shares

NSA leaker Edward Snowden is a “traitor,” venture capitalist Marc Andreessen told CNBC. The secrets he’s revealed have hurt Silicon Valley by association, and President Barack Obama is doing nothing to change that perception on the world stage.

“The Snowden reveals keep coming out. The [Obama] administration is letting the NSA out to dry. They’re letting the American tech industry out to dry,” Andreessen said in a “Squawk Box” interview that aired Thursday.

So he is a traitor, for bringing illegal practices to light, but the ones doing the illegal practices are patriots?

I would be very afraid of being his doctor. If he discover that Marc have a terminal disease and warn him, could be judged as killer.

Wow, I've always respected Andreessen for his work on Mosaic and Netscape but this is pretty reprehensible.

Guess he is good with tech and shitty at RL like Brendan Eich.
