LastPass doubles price of its Premium plan, removes features from its free service tier

I am a firm believer that a good password manager should be an essential part of every person’s security toolbox.  Lastpass has been a strong player in this space for some time and has built a strong user base through the availability of a feature rich free production version.  These changes in the Lastpass pricing structure may cause some to pause when looking at the product, but it should not cause anyone to walk away from the value of sound password management.
