Today password Web 2.0 application PassPack said "Thank You " to its loyal customers by releasing its next upgrade early and free. We've talked about PassPack 's handy password keeping service before on Profy . So how can you take a useful password keeping service one step further?
PassPack already offered AES encryption, anti-phishing devices, strong password support, 1Click Login and more. How can they add on to this? By offering an automatic upgrade to any current subscriber that exceeds their storage limit. Since PassPack users average more than 25 passwords per account, that is a significant upgrade offer.
“PassPack has attracted over 10,000 users in 110 countries. These are people who do everything online – the shear number of logins they need to store attests to that fact,” explains PassPack co-founder Tara Kelly, “using an online password manager like PassPack makes switching computers and traveling seamless – PassPack subscribers have the same safe, cross platform, easy access to their passwords from any computer in the world.”
What does this upgrade mean to the average PassPack subscriber? Because PassPack is planning to begin offering a premium level of service in 2008, users who upgrade now have the advantage of choice. They will be able to evaluate the premium level of service now, and choose in 2008 whether to stay at the premium level or go back to the "free service" level of password storage and retrieval.
If a user decides in 2008 to keep the extra space they are enjoying for free now, how much will it cost them? It will be about $3 dollars a month at current conversion rates. PassPack says they plan to bill this in annual increments. Don't worry – if you don't want to pay the nut to keep the extra storage once the free boost runs out, you can downgrade in 2008 to a free level account with no penalty for having tried the larger limit .
