CHANGES TO LOGMEIN FREE

After ten years, LogMeIn’s free remote access product, LogMeIn Free, is going away.  They will be unifying their portfolio of free and premium remote access products into a single offering.  This product will be a paid-only offering, and it will offer what they believe to be the best premium desktop, cloud and mobile access experience available on the market today. LogMeIn will be notifying those impacted by the change in the coming days and weeks.  In the meantime, we wanted to take a minute to explain the change and help users of LogMeIn’s access products better understand what this means for them.

Starting in January, LogMeIn will gradually migrate users of LogMeIn-branded remote access offerings and Ignition-branded remote access offerings to a single, premium access product. Please note that once you log into your account there is a seven day window to upgrade. Subscriptions will include LogMeIn’s signature remote access to two or more computers, premium mobile apps for Android and iOS, and native Mac and Windows desktop apps.  Additionally, all users who purchase a subscription to LogMeIn Pro will be upgraded to a premium remote access experience, with capabilities that include integration with popular cloud sync and share products like Cubby, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive and SkyDrive, the ability to manage and transfer cloud and local files, remote printing and more.

You can find the answers to what we anticipate will be the most common questions here.

 

Notification period

LogMeIn states that impacted users will be notified via email and in-product messages.  While messaging started today, users will be given 7 days to make a purchase decision about LogMeIn Pro.  To be clear, the 7-day grace period starts when you next login to the LogMeIn service.
