LastPass new interface will be made default for all users from August 1st. The company announced the move today, so what does it mean to you as a user?
Well, to be honest, it isn’t a big deal. If you have been using LastPass Password Manager for a while, you won’t notice a difference, literally. Technically this is not even new, since it has been around for a year or so. There’s a good chance that you have been using it ever since.

But LastPass states in its announcement, that its service will continue to exist in both free and premium versions, even after the acquisition.
First of all, we (LogMeIn/LastPass) have no plans [...]
Today morning, I woke up to an email from LastPass, an online password manager service.
I have been using it for a very long time, maybe more than 5 or 6 years, and use it for all of my online services.
