This is the latest trend, either upping the price, or actually adding a yearly sub to an app that was bought as a lifetime sub. CCleaner has tried this on me, asking for around $20 for another year! I bought this many years ago. I guess they are just trying it on as after an initial glitch when it opening, it now works fine. I dare say it will continue to work as well as it always did, Oh, the other thing, it just updated it’s self? I’m Sick of yearly subs, it’s getting expensive. I will stop using the apps that don’t have a free version. Bugger it, I’m not the bank of England!
[/quote]I just turn off CCeaner update that way I don’t have to worry when it checks it will not update because I choose the option to disable updates. Maybe you should look into that when installing CCleaner-that option is there but the user must make the change.

I get people being upset but $24 a year is still cheap. For years and years I didn’t use a password manager but my memory is getting worse and the number of sites I use is increasing so I used LastPass for about 6 months but dumped it after one too many security issues on their end. I’ve now switched to Sticky Password which is better, IMO, with a lifetime license. Nonetheless, it really comes down to how much people need the software and how much they use it. For many people a password manager is a lifesaver. So, is $24 really too much?
In short, I get people being annoyed but… really? I think there are bigger issues to get upset over. Just my opinion, of course.

Plus, I have both password encrypted so just because someone gets the file they will be trying til they go into the grave to figure it out.
