Editors' Review

by   / February 25, 2015

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.
