Recently, the developers of one of the most popular password managers LastPass announced a revision of the terms of use for a free subscription.

On March 16, 2021 LastPass Free users will be able to use it only on one type of device. These can be either desktops and laptops, or mobile devices and tablets.

After March 16, the first time you log into LastPass Free on a computer or mobile device, that device type will be registered as active. You will be able to switch the type of active devices three times. After the third change, you can only use LastPass Free on the last used device type.

After this notification, many users thought about migrating their passwords from LastPass to another password manager. Especially for them, we have prepared a short guide on how to transfer passwords from LastPass to Bitwarden.
