Dropbox and LastPass are making their changes to their password managers. First, Dropbox announced its upcoming free password manager. It will roll out to all existing users next month. Once released, they will be able to manage up to 50 passwords on the free Basic plan. The Plus plan for $11.99/mo. comes with no limits on password management. Additionally, premium accounts will now securely share their passwords to other accounts.
Second, LastPass is making its changes to its free plan starting today. Announced last month, the basic plan is limited to access all passwords on one device type. In other words, you have to choose either “Desktop” (desktop/laptop) or “Mobile” (smartphone/tablet/smartwatch). The user can change this option up to three times.
Cross-platform users that primarily use both iOS and Android devices should stick with LastPass. For a limited time, they can get a discount on the Premium plan. Users that don’t have several passwords may want to try Dropbox’s when it comes out. For users who are completely in the Apple ecosystem, they can always choose iCloud Keychain at no additional cost.
