Editors' Review

LogMeIn Free is a remote access program that allows you to remotely access your computers from a Web browser. It also provides a file sharing solution for when you have large files that you need to share.

Pros

Browser-based computer access: Being able to log in to your account through a Web browser and access a remote computer is a very useful concept, and it works great in LogMeIn. Log-in and access was quick and worked seamlessly in testing.

Good Web interface: You have to log in to the website in order to really test how this app works on the computer it is installed on, and the website works seamlessly. Log-in is quick, and then you just select your computer, log in, and you can access it remotely.

Large file sharing: This is a fantastic alternative to services like Dropbox or Google Drive. LogMeIn allows you to host your files on your own computer, but share a link so that people can transfer a copy directly from your computer to their machine. This is a very effective way to share files, and the app can create a download link that expires in a predetermined number of days with only a few clicks.

Cons

Complicated installation: The installation process was more confusing than it needed to be. The program asked you to create an account through a link that opened a sign-up page in a Web browser. After creating an account, the website tries to prompt you to install the software that you're already installing, which was redundant.

Slow navigation: Through repeated retesting, LogMeIn consistently had problems running smoothly.

Bottom Line

LogMeIn is not without its drawbacks, and the installation could certainly be smoother, but overall it is a good program. The remote access features work well, as does file sharing, and the program itself is very easy to use.

"Bad billing practices"

August 14, 2014  |  By quantenna1

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.229

Pros

service was ok until they changed everything around and started auto billing..

Cons

Was a logmein pro user at about $20/yr, then really stopped using it. Then they changed everything around.... and they charged me $299... I didnt realize until after the 30 day window so no refund. My company went in another direction so I am stuck EATING THIS. They also require an email or phone call to stop this from happening. No way to change it from the web login account portal. BAD BILLING PRACTICES... STAY AWAY.

Summary

STAY AWAY.
