LogMeIn posted on their blog site today that the free version of LogMeIn is going away. See: “Changes to LogMeIn Free”
But this should not be a surprise to anyone. LogMeIn has slowly been making changes that indicated that they would move away from their free version.
So, what does one do?
It all depends on your needs.
- For those providing I.T. support to end users, you can use Join.Me, another free product from LogMeIn. The only caveat with the free version is that the end user must be on the compute to initiate the session. I’ve been using it successfully for one-time or potential customers. Join.Me also provides meeting support for up to 10 participants … but that’s for another blog post.
- Or consider moving to LogMeIn Central, at $299 per year for supporting up to 100 computers.
- Another popular solution is TeamViewer. In fact, I use Teamviewer as my solution for supporting my ongoing customers.
There are plenty of other solutions.
