Some accounts get brief reprieve
Remote access service LogMeIn is shutting down access to free accounts, reports note. The company is informing subscribers that they have seven days after their next login to upgrade or stop using the service. Owners of LogMeIn Ignition for iOS and Android are being promised "significant" discounts, however -- and for the time being, LogMeIn Central, the free editions of Cubby and join.me are unaffected.
LogMeIn Pro subscriptions start at $99 per year, which covers access to two computers via the web and remote devices. Pro accounts also provide remote printing, file transfers, and hooks into cloud services. Offerings scale up to a small business account, which costs $449 per year but includes 10 machines.
