Passpack is getting ready to leave Beta. Amazing, but true.
It’s taken a while (lawyers be darned!) but within a week or so the first few days of November, we’ll be releasing Passpack 1.0 together with our first paid upgrade “Pro”. This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for.
Free-For-Now Becomes Free-Forever
I’d like to personally thank the many many users who opted into our Free-for-now promotion. When faced with the question “Would you pay for Passpack?” — you said YES, loud and clear.
To show our gratitude, we’ve decided to extend the promotion indefinitely.
As-is, for free, forever.
Wise guy alert: no getting smart and trying to squeeze in a free account at the last minute [wink]. As of now, the promotion is over. This is our way of thanking the early adopters. It’s just for them.
The New “Pro” Package
The Free-For-Now deal is mostly just extra passwords, though some folks might have also gotten extra disposable logins (we changed the configurations numerous time). The Pro package is much more than that, and we’ll continue to grow the feature set with time.
With the Free account, you get a little bit of everything. With Pro, you get more. Here’s a look:
- Save more passwords
- More disposable logins, that last for more time
- Save and archive more messages, and more sending options
- Unlimited people in your Ring of Trust (same as free)
- Less restrictions
You’ll notice that proper password sharing isn’t on the list yet. It will be. Once that technology is available, the Pro package will have (you guessed it) more than the Free account.
Who is Pro For?
Anyone will be able to upgrade, naturally, but as the name implies, we expect that the people who will really need Pro, are people who generally work and collaborate over the internet:
- Web Developers, Designers & Project Managers
Share passwords with the team during project development, then send them over to the client upon delivery.
- Online Traders
Use secure messaging instead of emails (those password protected PDFs are easily cracked folks).
- SEO & New Media Marketers
How many passwords do you have? Yeah, I thought so. You need far more capacity then the average person. Plus messaging is good for chatting with clients on strategy that’s best not left for the competitor to sniff (if the email gets sniffed – they’ll blame you).
How Much is Pro?
(What’s €10 in US Dollars?)
That will go up to €15/year once we complete the package with full password sharing.
