The #1 Password Manager service recently announced that they won’t allow free tier users to access the LastPass from different device categories. The only things that made LastPass distinct from other Password managers was the all device sync for free.

You will be able to access your passwords through a single category device from 16 March 2021. If you are looking for alternative then BitWarden is the one you looking for.
