LogMeIn no longer free, alternative desired

If you have been enjoying your free access to LogMeIn, then you would have been very angry to learn that this free service has come to an end. For those of you who wish to continue to use this remote access service, then you are being forced to upgrade to a premium account.

Let us say that you login to LogMeIn today, then you have just 7 days to upgrade your account, and if you fail to do so, you will lose all access to LogMeIn.

Those of you who an have account with the service should have received an email by now telling you about this news and what you need to do. They also offer advice to those of you who purchased the Ignition app, as you will be pleased to know that a small discount on the premium account is available to you.

LogMeIn alternative

The price for LogMeIn Pro will now be $100 per year and it is clear those of you who used to enjoy the free service are now starting to look for alternatives.

LogMeIn alternative — There are said to be better services that provide access to your computer, allowing you to manage and take control of your computer. One such service is TeamViewer, although this is only free for non-commercial use, having said that many users would agree that it is a far better service than LogMeIn.

Other alternatives are Jump Desktop, Pocketcloud and Splashtop. Some of these are still a paid service, although they cost much less than LogMeIn per year.

That`s an extremely bad news: Logmein free version is going away. I loved to use Logmein; but recently I have discovered another very good alternative: RHUB` remote support servers. It provides better security as compared to hosted services.

Thanks to LogMeIn’s new pricing policy, here at Splashtop, we are enjoying huge spike in user growth and sales….our product has always been faster and better, but LogMeIn has been in the market for 10+ years building up lots of followers. Thanks for breaking users’ trust, and now they are flooding to alternatives like Splashtop 🙂 cheers. -mark (CEO Splashtop, with over 15 million users)

Excuse the shameless self-promotion, but as a result of this abrupt action, we are offering 50% off of our industry-leading service. Same features, from pennies to a few dollars per month. Use offer code: LOGMEOFF at checkout.


Looks like I am going to be checking out your recommendations. I have used TeamView and that might be my total replacement. $100 a year is ridiculous. 🙁
