LogMeOnce boasts one of the most remarkable feature sets on the market, putting other password managers to shame, including Dashlane, which is widely regarded as the best. In fact, there are a number of unique features that I haven’t seen elsewhere. Is this password manager, however, truly up to the task? Or is it jam-packed with add-on after add-on that you’ll never use?

What is LogMeOnce?

Nobody can remember a complex, one-of-a-kind password for each website. That’s why we use a password manager to keep track of them all. However, most password managers require you to generate a single super-strong password that protects all of your other safety information. The default login method in LogMeOnce Password Management Suite Ultimate is passwordless, using smartphone-based authentication. This fantastic program has more features than any other password manager we’ve tested, with many of them available for a price. Do you really need them all, and are you willing to pay for them?

The passwordless authentication method used by the service is unusual, though not entirely unique. OneID verifies your identity based on the presence of a registered device. MyKi is a free password manager that keeps your passwords on a mobile device and authenticates you using that device and a PIN. True Key does not replace the master password, but it can be used in conjunction with it provided you allow enough biometric authentication choices.

Security of LogMeOnce

LogMeOnce’s goal is to provide a safe haven for all of your vital information, making it a great choice for storing sensitive data. This software’s main feature is password management, but it also allows you to securely store information such as Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and other personal information that you don’t want to fall into the wrong hands.

All three levels feature encrypted data storage, with 1 MB of storage for Premium, 5 MB for Professional, and 10 GB for Ultimate. You can also pay a premium to add more storage to your account. While it’s wonderful to have some storage by default as a free user, I believe it’s best to switch to a subscription plan if you plan on uploading a lot of files.

Pros and Cons of LogMeOnce

Pros

Syncs between Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android devices.

LogMeOnce lets users sync their information for logging in between different devices and they actually also offer this in the free version LogMeOnce premium.

New, more user-friendly interface.

LogMeOnce has evolved its interface from complicated and unappealing to a more simple and clean look that users would enjoy more.

There are a lot of features, many of which are unique and patented.

LogMeOnce is one of many password managers that offers numerous features beside auditing passwords and storing credentials in password vaults.

Cons

Some features come at an additional cost.

There are features for logMeOnce that you can only access if you have availed of a subscription plan for the Ultimate Password Manager.

Installation with all features is extremely costly.

It is expensive to avail all the features at once with the Ultimate plan of LogMeOnce so it may not be budget-friendly to users who are only patronizing the free tier.

Users may be overwhelmed by the numerous features

Since LogMeOnce has a lot of different features to offer besides being a Password Manager, users who are not interested in too much features and are only availing for the password management may not find this part appealing.

What does LogMeOnce have to offer?

LogMeOnce offers a number of features that make it one of the most simple and straightforward methods for teams to share data and credentials. The following are some of the major features:

Features of LogMeOnce

LogMeOnce was last reviewed at version 5.2. Its user interface has been completely revamped in the latest version, 6.3. The primary dashboard is mostly whitespace, with the words “Think Differently” emblazoned across the top. A circle of icons on the right can be customized with your own photo in the center. Password Manager, Mugshot, Password Shock, Productivity Charts, Two-Factor Authentication, Secure Notes, Secure Wallet, and Anti-Theft are among the icons in the circle.

I’m not sure why the circle of icons is only taking up a third of the available space. I’m also unhappy to discover that reducing the window simply shrinks the entire display accordingly. However, it is cleaner and more attractive than the previous version’s interface.

Those eight icons surrounding your photo are just a small sample of the many options available. The Smart Menu, which is divided into Productivity, Security, Reports, and General, offers a wealth of additional functions. You can use the Smart Menu to access any of the over two dozen functions. Ultimate users can delete any of the eight orbiting icons they don’t use and replace them with any other Smart Menu symbol. This configuration option is not available to free edition users.

When it comes to the free edition, there is a chance that the name will cause confusion. LogMeOnce Password Management Suite Premium is the full name of the free product. Yes, premium generally suggests that something isn’t free, but that isn’t the case here. The for-pay edition of LogMeOnce Password Management Suite Ultimate is the subject of this review.

You may use the free edition, like most password managers, to click to fill login credentials on a protected site, a feature known as Single Sign-On. Single Log-Out is an option for Ultimate users, which means that when you log out of your LogMeOnce account, it also logs you out of those websites.

Individual passwords or your entire account can be inherited using LogMeOnce’s password inheritance system. Free users are limited to five heirs per password; Ultimate users are not limited. Similarly, free users can only designate one successor for their account, whereas Ultimate users can designate as many as they desire.

Other differences between the free and Ultimate editions exist, but you get the picture. Again, these are all things that are available without charge, but they are enhanced when you pay.

Pricing of LogMeOnce

LogMeOnce is on the expensive end of the paid password manager market, at $39 per year. Dashlane is $39.99 per year, although most competitors are less expensive. For example, Sticky Password Premium and Keeper are both $29.99 a year, but RoboForm and True Key are both under $20.

You do receive 10GB of secure file storage for free, but if you want more, you’ll have to pay for it, just like with Keeper Password Manager & Digital Vault(40% Off Keeper Unlimited and Family Now! @ Keeper Security). Secure Drive, a fully controllable online storage drive, is included at the 50GB level ($39.96 per year). You’ll pay $199.92 per year for 250GB.

LogMeOnce now offers two packs. For $4.99 per month, or $59.88 per year, you can have the Ultimate edition adding enhanced Mugshot, Scheduled Login, and 10MB of secure file storage. Given that the basic Ultimate plan now includes 10MB of storage and Scheduled Login, this doesn’t seem like a great offer.

LogMeOnce’s Customer Support

Support from LogMeOnce appeared to be fairly responsive. I asked a simple question about the software in an email to their help account. Despite the fact that the response was only a link to one of their help pages, the item linked to did answer my question. The response time was slightly over 24 hours, which may seem a little long, but I’ll forgive them because I contacted them on a holiday weekend. Queries received during the week are likely to be answered more swiftly.

In terms of support articles, the website has a comprehensive FAQ section that walks visitors through many of the processes they may be having trouble with. It’s a terrific tool to have on hand, especially because the program can be difficult at times.

The password management service has a few drawbacks, including the lack of phone help and the limited availability of live chat. You’re pretty much confined to email support if you need help with your purchase. While the crew appeared to be attentive, the fact that the options for assistance are so limited is obviously a disadvantage.

LogMeOnce support looks to be consistent across all membership options, which is great news for those considering the free tier!

Comparing LogMeOnce to other Password Managers

LogMeOnce and LastPass

Both firms provide free and low-cost solutions, however LastPass does not include in-browser advertisements and has a more comprehensive feature set. When compared to the cheapest LogMeOnce subscription tier, LastPass is slightly more expensive, but it has a price advantage after that. LastPass also uses traditional master-password security, but LogMeOnce does not, which can be advantageous or disadvantageous depending on your viewpoint.

LogMeOnce and 1Password

In terms of security, these two services could not be more dissimilar. 1Password may prompt you for a master password more frequently than any other password manager, but LogMeOnce can be configured to never prompt you for one. You’ll also spend a lot more if you use 1Password as a single user or as part of a family plan. However, 1Password’s app will serve the most security-conscious consumers considerably better.

LogMeOnce and Dashlane

Dashlane is refined, and many people would say the same thing about LogMeOnce’s UI or website. Dashlane likewise costs significantly more for all product tiers than LogMeOnce. However, those higher rates include VPN encryption, which LogMeOnce does not. In our Dashlane review, we go over everything you need to know.

Bottomline on LogMeOnce

Overall, I believe LogMeOnce is a feature-rich password manager that, regrettably, appears to be suffocating under its own weight. While all of the functions work, and it’s fantastic to see unique features like Mugshot, it’s not enough to compensate for the terrible user experience and design that puts it below some of the industry leaders.

Although LogMeOnce isn’t very pricey, and the features it provides may be well-liked by power users and commercial users, I believe the typical consumer would be better served elsewhere. To cut a long tale short, LogMeOnce is just fine. Under the hood, there’s a lot of functionality, but it’s concealed behind a convoluted installation process and a clumsy user interface.
