Editors' Review

+

First, the good news: LogMeIn Free offers easy, secure, remote access to your Windows PC and its contents, file and desktop sharing, HD video and audio streaming, mobile device access, and more. The bad news: It's no longer free. The developer has "consolidated" to premium-only software.

Pros

Robust: LogMeIn's primary business is enabling remote support, so individuals and small users benefit from systems built for far more demanding needs.

Security options: Setting a Personal Password adds a layer of security. It can't be retrieved by LogMeIn staff.

Screen recording: LogMeIn Free can record onscreen video of active sessions. Other features include Event Logging, Remote Printing, and the Connection and Event Monitor.

File and desktop sharing: Files too large to email are easily shared through LogMeIn. You can invite trusted users to view your desktop and even share control of your keyboard and cursor, too.

Cons

It's not free: Our main objection to LogMeIn Free is that it's not free anymore. LogMeIn says it was necessary to change the terms of agreement, and it may have been. But they should change the name, too.

Bottom Line

LogMeIn Free is easy to use, works well, and does a lot. It may well be worth its annual subscription, especially if the "home office" is also known as the family room. But this software shouldn't be called "Free," if it isn't freeware.

"logmein messed with my local drive settings"

February 26, 2015  |  By brunoksmac

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.3430

Pros

it does work, once you figure out whether to start from browser or app.

Cons

HOWEVER, the software will make unwelcome changes to the settings on your local drive. Messed up my Chrome settings, forced searches through Yahoo (there's a reason I use Google) and corrupted one of the extensions (that dictates how new tabs open). Logmein now has been DELETED!

Summary

Bad business practice logmein!

"DONT GIVE THEM YOUR CREDIT CARD"

August 14, 2014  |  By quantenna1

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.3430

Pros

liked it, paid for it for a while, but then stopped using it because company went in different direction.

Cons

You cannot remove your credit card or stop service from account portal. I thought I did as I stopped using the service, and found a charge on my credit card for a new service at $299, after 30 days.
they moved me to advanced services and started charging me more for logmein central... Called, No refund even after they agreed that I didnt use the service at all for many months. Don't give them your credit card.

Summary

dont give them your credit card.

"Dishonest annual billing policies"

June 25, 2014  |  By tielholdstock

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.3430

Pros

Great product

Cons

I had an annual subscription which I forgot about as I no longer used it. Saw on my credit card that £52 had been taken. Phoned LogMeIn and they stated that 'As per our T's&C's' blah blah they can't refund the money. No reminder was sent. I see this as unethical. So I am very annoyed with LogMein. Don't use it!

"Ripoff service, not worth the money"

February 25, 2014  |  By reviewer965

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.3430

Pros

it was free

Cons

slow access
graphics hiccups
removed free access without any warning

Summary

These guys are a total ripoff. I setup my computers with this app because it was free, they never even hinted they were going to pull the rug out from under us. Bottom line is it was a scam to get people to setup their computers for free and then when they start to rely on the service... Bam, buy the overpriced service or else you lose control of your computers.
There are plenty of other services out there that are still free or a lot less than Logmein.

"The Customer is Not Right"

February 10, 2014  |  By rslvnpryr

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.3430

Pros

Cool service

Cons

Confusing billing, refused to refund after over a year of overpayments, buggy interface

Summary

I signed up for a monthly subscription with this company back in 2012 to use for business conference meetings, concept presentations, etc. After three months of the service I decided that I should save some money, so I signed up for their annual subscription -- which would save money in the long run. I'm a one-man business and only need 1-presenter. Apparently I signed up via their website for the annual using my same account information.

Long story short, I had signed up for an additional subscription. So I had not just an annual subscription, but also monthly charges running concurrently under the same account.

I just sat on hold for hours to get in touch with their support department only to hear that it was my mistake that their website accounts UI is so terrible. It's my fault that I asked them to double bill me for an account that was not in use.

So $400+ later, they're not going to offer a refund.

Use the free service, but never, I repeat, NEVER give these folks a dime. They don't operate on the "customer is always right" mindset.

Goodluck.
