View Full Version : Xmarks

A few months back a number of threads appeared about the impending demise of the Xmarks service and recommendations about a suitable replacement. This morning I received the following email:


Thank you for your recent pledge to keep Xmarks alive. After a
near-brush with shutting down, we’re happy to report that
Xmarks has been acquired by LastPass, the leading password and
data manager.


The acquisition means two things for Xmarks users:

1) Xmarks will continue as the same free service that you know
and love.

2) Xmarks now offers a Premium service for $12 per year that
includes the iPhone and Android apps, advanced features, and
priority support. See http://buy.xmarks.com/premium.php for
more information.

We hope that as an Xmarks user who pledged your support to keep
Xmarks alive, you will consider upgrading to Xmarks Premium to
gain access to these features. Your support will not only
ensure our long-term viability, but will also help accelerate
the introduction of new features and service improvements.

To upgrade to Xmarks Premium, visit

We're excited to continue providing the best data-syncing tools
out there!

Great news, I just got the same email. Its the excuse I need to start using lastpass and stop using the same password for virtually everything.

I too am glad (Fox)Xmarks has survived. I've come to rely on it for well over a year now. Their privacy policy is cool, hopefully the new owners maintain the same policy.
