LastPass Acquires Xmarks!


In our efforts to bring you expanded, go-anywhere access to your data, we're excited to announce that LastPass has acquired Xmarks! It's a great opportunity that not only ensures the survival of the Xmarks add-on, but will also enhance our mission to provide the best data-syncing tools out there.

Xmarks, formerly known as Foxmarks, provides the world’s leading browser add-on for cross-browser bookmark sync that has successfully grown to over 4.5 million users syncing more than 1 billion bookmarks across 5 million computers. Xmarks has become an integral part of the browsing experience for millions of users, and you can rest assured that we will continue to expand the service in the coming months.

Xmarks is transitioning to a "freemium" business model, the same model that allowed us to grow into a thriving, profitable business. The browser add-on and the vast majority of what users have enjoyed will remain free. Users can then opt to purchase Xmarks Premium for $12 per year, which includes new enhanced features like Android and iPhone mobile phone apps, priority support, and more. The Xmarks and LastPass Premium offerings are also available bundled together at a reduced subscription rate of $20 per year. For current LastPass Premium users, this means you can upgrade today for only $8 more per year.

We believe the acquisition will prove to be a success because of the common mission shared by LastPass and Xmarks. Xmarks complements LastPass' vision of secure, universal access to the information that gives you entry to your digital life. As the ultimate cross-browser, cross-platform team, Xmarks and LastPass will work together to help more people simplify their digital lives and access their data from anywhere, at any time.

We're excited to welcome Xmarks to the LastPass family, and hope you will support both of these great services through your business and your Premium subscription. For more information, please check out the FAQs.

  2. This is fantastic. I've benefited from using both of these products for quite a while. Really glad Xmarks has a future, and that LastPass is continuing to grow!

  3. can't wait, xmarks couldn't wish for a better company to purchase them.
    I have been a avid user of both, on PCs and mobile.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Will the bookmark syncing features be available for free users?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Wow. This was the only thing missing... now there is hope Opera support is on the horizon, then I will lock myself back into the Opera universe!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Interesting. You know how you got LastPass working in Camino, well if you could do the same with XMarks, I'd give it a whirl.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Awesome! Xmarks and Lastpass together are my cantlivewithout tools on the road. brb... upgrading my lastpass account. :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. You are currently signed up for auto-renewal via Google Checkout. You must unsubscribe before you can purchase additional features.

    We apologize for the minor inconvenience, this will help ensure that LastPass Premium and Xmarks premium can continued to be bundled.

    WHAT IS THAT !?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Awesome, can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Now bring xmarks to Opera web browser pleeeease?

    ReplyDelete
  11. On my last renewal I paid for lastpass in advance for four years. Any chance I can still get the discount for xmarks. Really like to support your purchase.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Great to hear this! Have really warmed up using LastPass on a daily basis. Used to use Foxmarks/Xmarks so it will be good to see the both of them together. I think it is a very complementary purchase and will help end users to both store and sync their bookmarks and passwords in a secure manner.

    ReplyDelete
  13. This is fabulous news. As a longtime user and fan of LastPass, plus one of the folks who was so upset about Xmarks going under, this sounds like a great combination. In fact, I think I even suggested it a few times ...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Awesome. A great start to the day hearing this. A second for Vegard's remark. As soon as this is put into Opera (along with a decent twitter client), Chrome's out the door. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. So glad to hear it.

    We were concerned!

    Glad to see their savior come forward!

    ReplyDelete
  16. so what now? how can we have a unified, single sign-on with these very beautiful tools?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thank goodness someone has saved XMarks. I will seriously consider the full package at that price. The only thing I need is Atomic Browser compatibility on the iPhone. Safari is awful!

    ReplyDelete
  18. As a fan of LastPass and user of Xmarks and I am more than happy to hear this. Thanks a lot guys!
    we are supporting you in any way we can...

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is amazing! Thank you, Xmarks and LastPass teams!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Awesome news! As a dedicated LastPass users, maybe this time I'll have to give Xmarks a try :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great and thanks ... two real handy tools become one :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Woo Hoo ! There is a Santa Claus after all! Thanks guys. Two great apps!

    ReplyDelete
  23. +1 for opera support :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. The moment Xmarks announced its shutdown, I immediately thought rescue by LastPass would be the perfect answer. My dreams have come true! Now can you do the same for my address book/contacts? :) Thanks and keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Congrats on the acquisition, but is there any reason why my more than 1,000 bookmarks don't come up when I log in at my.xmarks.com now? I've tried on multiple computers and the progress wheel in the browser just whirls and whirls and whirls and no bookmarks ever appear. I'd like to export a back up of them if possible, but I can't get them to show.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awesome! I got the notice from xmarks that they were going to be terminating their service, and I didn't know what I'd do... This is great!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Fantastic! I absolutely love both products and it warms my heart to see them working together. :)

    One request: LastPass BYOS edition

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Are we getting these two combined into one app? PassMarks? Great aquisition!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Very cool, congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am very thankful for this step! I loved Xmarks for it's cross browser solutions and lastpass is my first addon to install and with these two combined I am no more bound to Google Chrome or FF4 to synch my bookmarks. Thank You very much, Lastpass team! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. That's about the best outcome for all the Xmarks users, I'm really greatful for this! Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  32. Opera support vote here. Will sign up for premium.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I never used Xmarks but I know it was good. I will now, because I love Lastpass. I think its a very good combination to be honestly as both products fit more or less the same market. Just dont try to be all things under the sun. Logins and bookmarks, is enough for now :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I wanted to add that the Opera Lastpass plugin works great. Keep the good work !!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Awesome news! Love Xmarks and LastPass great combo/ Thanks LastPass.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Very good news. Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'd like to see Xmarks integrated with LastPass, so that my bookmarks are all encrypted, unless I want to keep them separate. Encrypted bookmarks would be excellent, while LastPass sort of works like that, it isn't as setup for bookmarks, and even managing the hierarchy of current sites, is a hassle.

    Also the ability to only have to login to the application once. As opposed to both.

    Will be good to see tighter integration between the 2 plugins.

    (I'm using Chrome 8)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Lastpass for passwords, Xmarks for bookmarks. Here here for integration!

    ReplyDelete
  39. BRAVO!!!
    Now Mac OS X ... is will be supported??

    ReplyDelete
  40. Awesome! This is great news. LastPass and Xmarks are the two extensions I use in all my browser installations.

    ReplyDelete
  41. If you're having trouble upgrading (unzim and others) or if you're running into problems with the Xmarks extension, please email us at support@lastpass.com or support@xmarks.com and we'll help you sort it out.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Please change the web site XMARKS.
    The proxy of my company take XMARKS as porn site and blocks it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'll take the bundle. Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is GREAT! looking forward to see what you do together.

    ReplyDelete
  45. WOW! Awesomeness..!!!

    I thought Xmarks is gonna shut down forever..

    nice work LastPass team..!!

    Hail LastPass & Xmarks..

    ReplyDelete
  46. great excellent.. finally you saved my the day... this is the best news i heard after a long time.... thank you thank you... :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think it would be interesting to embed the functionality of both into a single application. X-Marks had passwords sync, history and other things that could be absorbed by LastPass.

    Btw, I loved this excellent news!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I just downloaded Xmarks! And now, I can use my bookmarks were ever i go and on any computer!

    ReplyDelete
  49. OMFG.... now let them have amazing sex together and create one super app....

    ReplyDelete
  50. Great!!
    Two of the best services on web just blended together!! We will wait for greater things in future!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I've upgraded to premium in support of your recent aquisition. I use both apps and am glad that xmarks will be sticking around!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Glad to hear this. Already purchased the upgrade for my lastpass account. Its great to see two of my favorite tools come together. I look forward to where this goes..

    ReplyDelete
  53. Just another guy who thinks both of these products are very useful and is pleased that they are joining forces.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Nice Work Joe! I am rooting for you big time! Best, Anthony Solazzo

    ReplyDelete
  55. Holy shit, I don't think I can think of a better company to have acquired xmarks! Lastpass is an amazing program and company, and it just works. Same with Xmarks. This, is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  56. papajohnr@gmail.comDecember 3, 2010 at 11:10 PM

    Two of my most used and favorite applications coming together. I signed up for premium service and urge all free users to do likewise. The products deserve applause for excellence ... and the cash price is a pittance for such useful applications.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Awesome! can't wait for some kind of combined browser plugin

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great. These are the only plugins I install

    ReplyDelete
  59. I hope in the future it will be one product that combines both. I stopped using xMarks after Google chrome sync. But with LastPass capabilities integrated with xmarks .. i'm looking forward for that.

    ReplyDelete
  60. This is very very good. I was hoping on this, but I never expected this. As a user of both products, it's good to see that Lastpass has listened to the community which make them even better. Thanks folks, this is really appreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'll upgrade to the premium version once xmarks offers a Blackberry version :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Parabéns à LastPass! Uma bela iniciativa, que vai manter vivo o Xmarks, com um estilo de negócio que merece aplausos. Deixo meu desejo de sucesso nessa nova fase.

    Congratulations from Brazil!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Awesome news !!

    LastPass and Xmarks are truly awesome add-ons. I'm really glad Xmarks won't end.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Awesome! I was using xmarks and roboform. Now I am ready to switch to last pass premium and xmarks for both services from one source. This is a great news.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Fantastic! Foxmark and Lastpass are my favorite services

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wonderful news!!! 2 great services worth to pay!
    We all thank you for letting Xmarks live and grow.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I recently stumbled across XMarks myself when looking for such a solution. But why should I use this over Firefox Sync?

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm glad that Xmarks isn't going to die now. I have been using Xmarks for years and was every unhappy at the announcement that Xmarks was going to close in Jan 2011.

    So, thank you lastpass, for letting Xmarks live on.

    ReplyDelete
  69. This is great news! I'm glad Last Pass acquired Xmarks as I am already both an Xmarks and Last pass user. Knowing that it's staying is a relief. Now I don't have to worry where or how to export my gazillion of bookmarks.

    ReplyDelete
  70. 鼓励一下哈,这个真的是大好事阿....

    ReplyDelete
  71. It sounds great... I've been using both for a while, but I am still waiting for the promised Brazilian Portuguese language pack, so that I can finally sign up for the Premium package...

    Hoping to see it available soon...

    ReplyDelete
  72. XMarks is a security NIGHTMARE!!! All you bookmarks out there on the internet for all to see!!! I for one, will not use XMarks until they introduce private encrypted bookmarks. I don't want my passwords out there on the internet, so why my bookmarks?! Encrypt them all NOW!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I agree with above, Xmarks not secure, very dangerous,

    ReplyDelete
  74. Bravo! And Bravo again.

    ReplyDelete
  75. LastPass has almost always worked wonderfully for me, but Xmarks was a buggy mess that I got rid of because it was so bad. If your acquisition is about bringing Xmarks up to speed, then I'm all for it, except I hope your valuable programming time isn't sucked up by what I consider to be a less important thing than password management. After all, I don't spend a lot of time going to bookmarked sites, but I do often need to use my passwords. I urge you to be careful not to lose focus!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. for continuing and improving, i thank U

    ReplyDelete
  77. yes it's terrific ! i also used both xmarks and lastpass speratly...now i'm happy :o) il will upgrade !

    ReplyDelete
  78. Well, that is great NEWS indeed - have been using both services for some time and am as of today a Premier - wishing a great head-start into the NEW YEAR - ZNOX

    ReplyDelete
  79. Out of all the plug ins out there, the one bookmark manager I use and the one password manager I use are merging. How good is that!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Отличная новость.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Awesome! LastPass rules, so "extending" it to cover all my bookmarks is a no-brainer!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Wow, this is the best possible scenario. Two of my favorite services coming together!

    ReplyDelete
  83. awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Fantastic ! I use the 2 products and I love them !!

    Great, really !

    Fabrice, Toulouse, France

    ReplyDelete
  85. This is awesome!
    I'm using both applications too and I didn't want Xmarks to die. Great job, really!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Lastpass and Xmarks together is gonna be bananas.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Both xmark and lastpass are my first installs when i install my browser...cant want

    ReplyDelete
  88. i always loved both of them, so i guess that together they´ll be better than ever! :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Totally AWESOME. Xmarks was great, now I can see it getting the improvements it needed like easier bookmark sorting and organising, maybe enhanced drag and drop functionality, and overall more intuitive, beside that, xmarks still lead the pack in terms of bookmarking tools, now I'm confident to see a lot faster development on the horizon....i hope it's not wishful thinking, it i see some action, I'm a goin' premium

    ReplyDelete
  90. The perfect acquisition. Could not be happier.

    ReplyDelete
  91. SO happy! I'm an xmark user, and an thrilled. And now, I've learned about LastPass too - and I will be getting it as well!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Great news! I can't think of a better partnership. Best wishes on a successful relationship!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Have been using XMarks in the past...great app. I'm now switching to LastPass from KeyPass for my pw needs. What a great combo!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I look forward to an IOS browser with both LastPass and Xmarks built in! That would become my default mobile browser.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Already a LastPass premium member, just upgraded xMarks to premium as well. These two products are simply the best web apps out there. Thank you LastPass for making an excellent product....this news is a dream come true!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Thanks for getting Xmarks back to real live. It is the most useful sync tool I ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I've been using both these apps for some time. They compliment each other perfectly!

    I'm very relieved that LastPass has purchased Xmarks and that the app will continue. LastPass and Xmarks are "MUST HAVE" apps!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Excellent. Don't need the Xmarks premium services today, but I promised to support you if you found a way to keep going, so I sent in $24 for 2 years service. Keep up the good work. And maybe I'll give LastPass a try. If it is half as good a Xmarks, it will be a winner for me. Thanks, again.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Like Chocolate and Peanut Butter.

    ReplyDelete
  100. According to my commitment, I have my premium account Xmarks ;)

    ReplyDelete
  101. bonjour et merci d'avoir acheter Xmarks! avec lastpass c'est mes 2 extensions indispensable de firefox (c'est dommage qui le mette pas en native dans firefox)
    bonne continuation
    de la part de kevin

    ReplyDelete
  102. Please don't join the two services into one. I don't have a good feeling uploading my passwords somewhere else than my braincells ;)

    disi

    ReplyDelete
  103. Thank you for saving xmarks! Going by all these comments from your currents users us xmarks users should be in good hands.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I have been using both free services for a long time now. I don't have a need for the premium service but I am going to upgrade to keep these great services alive! I can't imagine what I would do without both of these. They are the first things I install on any machine!

    Keep up the great work.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I pledged to support XMarks when they asked for help and I did when it came time to pay. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Superb news. I pledged. I waited. I stopped using anything but Safari due to fear of chaos in bookmarks (and iphone.pad compatibility). Got your e-mail today and just subscribed to XMarks premium. Worth every penny. Installing Firefox and Chrome now.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Congratulations on a great job with acquiring xMarks, which has made my life SO much easier on a daily basis.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  108. For those unfamiliar with LastPass services it is important to have a convincing first look effect. I came from an email sent by xmarks support and what I see is the small top row designed with traditional colors of a cheap-porn website!
    Should I trust all my passwords and personal bookmarks to that kind of site?
    I believe it should be fixed, guys. XMarks is really good at professional assuring design.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Thanks a lot for keeping Xmarks alive. When I get my first Android I will upgrade.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Dude...what are u talking about? Never, ever seen that before. You appear to be experiencing browser issues.

    ReplyDelete
  111. This is some awesome news, I was worried I was going to lose my favorite add-on! I will be signing up for the premium service for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Not only did Xmarks survive, it teamed with another great service. Really great news. Very happy indeed. Off to pay for premium now!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Thank-you LastPass for breathing a second life into XMarks.

    My wife and I would be totally lost without this service as we utilize several computers each during the work-day and evenings, and we were worried that we would have to start keeping bookmarks on flash-drives again.

    Well worth the $12/yr for the Premium Service.
    XMarks Rocks. And now so does LastPass!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Like VJ of December 4, 2010 10:41 PM, I am currently using Roboform but I'll make the switch because sometimes mergers are good!

    ReplyDelete
  115. Awesome!!!! Love XMarks and so glad to see it alive and well!

    ReplyDelete
  116. This comment has been removed by the author.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Awesome. Just i thought xmarks will be gone and start using delicious. You guys come along, joining my two best friends.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Great news. Really. Xmarks is a terrific plus.

    I pledged to support Xmarks when its demise was first announced.
    Earlier today, I emailed my $12 for the Premium level -- am still am unable to get it despite an email from Xmarks saying I indeed do have it.
    As requested, I logged out then in.... Still no Premium sign that I could find, except for the offer to buy it.
    What's the problem: me or Xmarks? If the latter, can you fix it or give me back my $12?

    ReplyDelete
  119. Mort --

    You can confirm your premium status on your profile and 'My Account' pages on xmarks.com.

    My suspicion is that you have been upgraded successfully.

    Thanks for the support!

  121. Congratulations!!!
    I found LastPass looking for an alternative to Xmarks when I learned it was going out of Business.
    But I couldn't find a good alternative to keep in sync Firefox and Chrome bookmarks!
    Thanks to both teams for the great work!!!
    Best regards,
    Enrique, from Argentina.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Lastpass looks pointless... but il gladly purchase the premeium xmarks!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Great. OK, time to upgrade to Xmarks Premium, as I pledged to do.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Awesome! two great tastes that (hopefully will) taste great together!
    Any plans to add functionality to allow users to synch add-ons in Firefox the way Siphon does? That would be great!
    I will be upgrading to the bundle soon!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Great!!!
    Favorites and passes anywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Excellent news. Just received an e-mail telling me about this plus the fact that I can upgrade to X-marks premium. Since I don't own a smart phone, I have no need of this, but WOULD like to contribute/donate money to X-marks continued development.

    What should I do ???

    Michael Simpson

    ReplyDelete
  127. @Anonymous -- if you'd like to contribute the best thing is to simply go Premium -- even though you don't need the mobile support you might get a new feature we add in the future...

    ReplyDelete
  128. I pledged, I paid. I hope all Xmarks users will do the same. This is the most useful service (after the browser itself) I have for internet access.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love this two services!
    I upraded for Xmarks Premium.

    Thanks to LastPass

    ReplyDelete
  130. I've used both LP and Xmarks for quite awhile. When I heard that XMarks was going away, I was dreading having to uninstall the application and have been holding on until the very end. This is exciting news!!! I love LP Premium and will be paying the extra $8 a year. This is fantastic!!!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Love it! already upgraded...just wish I could set it to auto renewal right now.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Both services are great, when XMarks announced it was shutting down I immediately thought that LastPass should buy them. I'm glad you did.

    ReplyDelete
  133. As soon as I got the email about X-mark closing down you were the first ones I thought it would be perfect for. I use both these services everyday and I will upgrade to x-marks premium for no other reason then to say THANKS! Keep up the great work.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Awesome news! Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  135. Congrats Joe and the Gang!
    Finally Lastpass will get bookmarks!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Thanks for the early Xmas present guys. My two favourite tools now in one great package. Now I have even more reason to evangelise about how good Lastpass and Xmarks are!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Excellent!!!!!!!!! I am not familiar with Lastpass but I will definitely give it a look. I also just subscribed for three years premium to follow through with my pledge to Xmarks.

    Thanks guys!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Thank You, LastPass for preserving Xmarks which I use for both personal and business bookmarks sharing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I'm glad to hear it a much! I use Xmarks and LastPass both and this is awesom news! 2 my the lovest plugins is united! GREAT!

    ReplyDelete
  140. Personally, I see lastpass as a bookmark manager of sorts already. If some of the better features of xmarks were integrated into lastpass that would make me happy. But I'm not sure that it would really be worth 66% premium.

    ReplyDelete
  141. LastPass is a great tool ... used FoxMarks for years ... seems you will be competing against the synch "feature" available in Firefox 4.X ... good luck ... BTW I am a premium member and LastPass is worth the money.

    ReplyDelete
  142. thank you lastpass

    ReplyDelete
  143. I have been using LastPass for years now, and just upgraded to Premium last month to take advantage of the Dolphin HD plugin on Android. LastPass on Dolphin is a great product, my only wish is to gain access to the password vault through the plugin.

    This is an amazing prospect and add on to my lastpass subscription, and I just bought it. I hope to see this brought to Dolphin HD as well, and I do hope my funds find their way supporting that effort.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Congratulation! My two favorite plug-ins together at last!

    ReplyDelete
  145. I was sad to hear about the demise of Xmarks. It's really great to hear Lastpass is keeping them alive. I honestly can't think of a better company I'd rather see take the reigns from Xmarks than Lastpass!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Two teams doing an excellent job on one of the most usefull finctionnalities joining their force, that's great !

    When is the contact syncho coming (expecially between Gmail and outlook that doesn't really exist) ? You are the best placed to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I use both tools alot. Upgrading now. Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Great........

    Thank you so much for saving Xmarks.........

    ReplyDelete
  149. Yet another cherry! Thank you guys. You made my day....Thank you guys.....once again.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I previously have used free versions of both and the threat of losing Xmarks will prompt me to purchase a subscription because I would like to see both products fiscally secure in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  151. wow!!! That is great news!!! I use both tools and was very sad to learn that XMarks would be shutting down. What a perfect combination!

    ReplyDelete
  152. To quote Spock, "Live long and prosper."

    ReplyDelete
  153. A million thanks for saving Xmarks. I've never used LastPass, but I'm going to give it a try and subscribe to both.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Fascinating! Two of the very best and most useful tools that have substantially supported my cyberspace experience for quite some time are joining: what a good idea, what a great chance. I wish you a bright future!

    ReplyDelete
  155. Sorry, but without 2ways sync between iPads Safari and IE the paid option makes no sense.
    As I love LastPass, I bought Xmarks right away, but am disappointed about this missing feature.

    ReplyDelete
  156. great news, hope more features are coming.....

  157. I like both LastPass & XMarks! Having them combined would be convenient.

    BUT, your methodology for updating my account is both arcane & unfair. I paid $12.00 2 months ago for LastPass. Now to upgrade you want me to CANCEL my account. Nothing is said about getting credit for the $10 pro-rated value lost in a cancellation. You want me to LOSE money to upgrade??

    Gee folks! Either you've done a very poor job of communicating the fairness of the details of how to upgrade, OR your leadership is making some foolish, selfish, and unfair decision that reflect a lot more care for the $$ than for true customer service.

    I can see it makes economic sense. I lose $10 to you for unused services & immediately pay you $20. Your bottom line looks great. But honestly, it FEELS like you're stealing money from me - NOT serving me.

    You really should either program a method for paying a small upgrade fee - or just give the upgrade to every existing Professional subscriber and bill the full amount next time.

    I admit that I haven't searched every inch of your site to see if you explain somewhere else that something I'm seeing is not the truth, but your current method of telling everyone logging in & wanting to update to CANCEL their account does reflect the above.

  158. Hank,

    First, thanks for your support.

    1) You don't lose any money. When signing up for the bundle, the idea is to leave you with only one subscription to maintain (rather than two different subscriptions that end on two different dates that would likely cause you even more heartache in the future).

    2) Yes, it seems like there should be a better/easier way, but we couldn't find one that would work with both Google Checkout and PayPal.

    If you go through the steps on the update page, you'll see that you never lose any credit.

    Sorry for the confusion - we'll update the upgrade page to make this clearer.

    Thanks,
    LastPass

  161. Just heard about the good news on the acquisition of Xmarks. Congrats!!
    I have been using LastPass for some time. So knowing this, it still not too late to learn more abt Xmarks.
    A wonderful combination.
    Thanks,

  162. Perfect combination. So glad Xmarks is not going away and couldn't think of a better partner to keep it going.

  163. Thanks for the clarification!!
    I'm sure others will appreciate an update to the wording on the upgrade page so there isn't confusion.

  164. Cool, that saves me a lot of trouble!

  165. This. Is. AWESOME. I switched to LastPass because of xmarks going out. Now it looks like I get to keep everything. ;D

    ReplyDelete
  166. I was struck hard when I heard Xmarks was going under, and wasn't sure what to trust with my information, so I was in a bit of a hard place. The news that Xmarks was staying afloat was awesome, and when I looked to see who had acquired them, I knew I would have to try out LastPass finally. Great move IMHO, and you have at least one new customer thanks to it. ^^

  167. I moved from xmarks to firefox sync. I guess it's time to move back once again...

  168. Yipeeeh, what a dreamteam. I'm excited how they will merged into one killerapp!

  169. Great news! I have used LastPass for months now and love your service.

  170. Congratulations!
    I expected this. Lastpass has finaly listened to the community.

  171. Nice one, its my first day with lastpass (thanks so much gawker!), but I've used xmarks forever.

    ReplyDelete
  172. I am a loyal xmarks user, and will soon be a LastPass premium member!

    ReplyDelete
  173. What's the added functionality of LastPass? Xmarks syncs passwords already... Is there something about lastpass that makes it more secure than just using xmarks to sync passwords?

  174. too bad we still need different id's for each one. i was hoping for a consolidated ID.

    ReplyDelete
  175. too late i jumped ship
    should have been done soon
    not going to change all the pcs back now

  176. I'm very delighted the deal worked out, consumer power in action, thanks for listening to your many customers who asked if you could help the owners of xmarks, a very wise move

    ReplyDelete
  177. I am very happy as I was a good user of Xmarks.
    Thanks for the support.

    ReplyDelete
  178. I'm really glad to hear that Xmarks will live on - I've used it for years and thought it a shame when I heard that is was going. And $12 a year for the extra features is a real bargain.

  179. 'Tis the Season to be MOST Jolly, indeed!

  180. Sweet! Love both services, and am a premium member on both. ^_^
    On that...any word on rebates for premium services if you're using both? ... Please?

    Also, is LastPass (or it's parent company ...if it has one) planning on going public? (As in publicly traded?)
    I'd LOVE to snag some stock since your services are so excellent.
    ...also considering the mass of personal info you host, I wouldn't be surprised if you were purchased by big Goog sometime in the future. ;-p *=$$Cha-Ching!$$*

  181. I've been won over by LastPass and am going Premium shortly for integration with Dolphin HD on my Droid. I'm excited by the news that LastPass has taken over XMark, but until/unless they add parity to Delicious (including import - or Sync - of ALL Delicious bookmarks PRESERVING TAGS), I can't see switching from Delicious. For one, I have over 1400 bookmarks with heavy tagging and for another, I rely on the security features of Delicious to keep some private, some public/shared....
