They should charge more for that!
Should you pay for LastPass Premium?
Every year, I get an e-mail from Wikipedia asking for a donation and recommending $3. I pay it every year without hesitation. Why? Because I reference Wikipedia often and I would be very sad if it went away.
Frankly, I believe they should charge or ask for a larger donation.
Have you ever said that about a product? For me, it doesn’t happen often. Yet there are a few other things that are free or cost very little and provide an incredibly invaluable service that should be asking for more.
One recently did.
As a user of LastPass, I’ve wondered for years why they offer such a great product—one username and password to access all your usernames and passwords—for free. When it came out with a premium version for $12, it seemed like a no-brainer. Especially since you could use the same LastPass account for your phone.
When I realized Premium didn’t do anything extra for me, I went back to the free version. Then, the app stopped working on my phone, unless you upgraded to premium. This time, it was $36 per year.
And guess what?
I gladly paid it. LastPass has been a savior for me while using it on my desktop and remembering passwords I share with other folks—I’ve been hounding them to sign up and actually use LastPass.
It also enables you to avoid something most identity thieves love: people who use the same password for everything.
Basically, you only have to remember one password. The rest are stored.
It’s been even more convenient to have on my cellphone. Particularly when using my phone to sign-up for streaming services on various channels.
So, I paid the $36 annual fee. Gladly. Maybe that was due to the years of having it free that I didn’t mind shelling out $3 per month. It really was more about preferring having LastPass to not and that was worth the price.

Shush! This one is still free

Best line of the week
“You looked kind of off at the funeral.”
I won’t name names for this great line. Yet it was said to a family member over the weekend at a memorial service. Folks, you can’t make this stuff up.
Have a great week and please share.
