Even people with the best memory will struggle with memorizing a strong password for every single website and account they use. The number of websites we tend to visit is just too high!
It’s tempting to repeat passwords or use passwords that are all similar, but it’s a big risk. Cybercrime is on the rise and the last thing you want is to be hacked or have your identity stolen. Managing multiple passwords is, therefore, often a struggle. But, it’s also a must.
A password manager can make this task easier. LogMeOnce password manager is one example.
This review will look at the pros and cons of LogMeOnce. We’ll also look at some important factors, such as price, security, and technical specs, as well as compare this password manager to another popular product, LastPass.
We’ll start this LogMeOnce review by examining some of the benefits of this particular service.
The pros and cons of LogMeOnce
LogMeOnce has a lot going for it. You can sync it across Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android, giving it great compatibility. It also has a clean, impressive interface. The service comes with a ton of features, many of which you won’t find in any other password manager on the market. Some of the features include account freeze, selfie two-factor authentication, emergency access, and anti-theft protection.
The biggest con is that to get all of these features, you’ll have to pay extra. They don’t all come with the free version. Still, the free version also has a lot of features. In addition, if you’re just looking for a password manager with basic features, the sheer amount of options that come with LogMeOnce may feel overwhelming.
LogMeOnce requires Android 4.0 or higher, iOS 8.2 or higher, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Linux, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10.
There are also browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer. You’ll want the most updated browser for optimal functionality.
How to use LogMeOnce
Using a password manager for the first time can be an intimidating process. LogMeOnce offers thorough training for new users. After installing the service, sign up for an account by entering your name and email address. You can also sign up via Facebook.
You have the choice between using a Master Password or using passwordless authentication. The second option is recommended as it’s more secure. Passwordless authentication relies on photo and fingerprint identification. You will also need to choose or create a security question.
Next, you’ll want to get the extension for the browser you use the most. You will be asked whether you want to store credentials in the cloud or on your device. Pick your preference.
You will now be able to import passwords from your browser and sync your account to your various mobile devices. To register your mobile device, you’ll need your email address.
LogMeOnce has a free version. There’s also a Professional Edition that costs $1 a month and an Ultimate Edition that costs $3.25 a month when you sign up for a 1-year plan. However, you have a choice to go for a 2, 3, 4, and 5-year plan to get a 3%, 6%, 10%, and 15% discount off the monthly amount. All these options come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
If you go with the Ultimate version, it’s one of the most expensive password managers on the market. Adding more features will cost you even more. However, the free version still has a lot of functionality. Most casual users won’t need all of the features that come with the higher-end packages.
Is LogMeOnce safe?
LogMeOnce uses a lot of innovative features to keep your data safe. Photo-login automatically creates two-factor authentication. If you use the Master Password alternative, the password is stored locally so if you have a strong password, you’ll be safe.
LogMeOnce also has an excellent password generator to help you create stronger passwords. Other security features include anti-theft tools and account freeze.
Overall, LogMeOnce is a safe password manager.
LogMeOnce vs LastPass
|Automatic fill of web forms||Yes||Yes|
|Password strength report||Yes||Simple strength report. Security Challenge feature available|
|Secure sharing||Free: 5 shares|
Professional: 30 shares
Ultimate: unlimited shares
|Synchronization||It doesn’t require synchronization. It uses real-time data from the cloud on all devices.||MacOS, Windows, Linux, Chrome, iOS, Android|
LastPass and LogMeOnce are both excellent apps that will give you all the features you would need out of a password manager.
In general, LogMeOnce has more features, but not all of these features are something you’ll use often. It’s a good idea to look at all the different features they offer and see which ones you need and which ones you don’t. You want a feature-packed service, but you might not want a service that is bloated.
Both password managers allow you to securely share passwords, but the function is easier on LastPass. We checked both password strength reports, and were impressed by both services and their synchronization capabilities as well.
In summary, LogMeOnce is one of the best password managers on the market.
Still, if you’re just looking for a simple password manager, you’re probably better off with a manager that has less features. If you want tons of bells and whistles, however, LogMeOnce is a must-have. You will get two-factor authentication, secure sharing, an excellent password generator, a secure vault, great compatibility, and a lot more.
Plus, despite tons of unique features, the service is relatively easy to use thanks to its easy-to-follow video tutorials.
