The sad statement was made by Log Me In via emails to its customers: “Today, Log Me In is announcing plans to retire Cubby from its current line of products.
We understand this may present challenges for you, but you don’t have to go just yet – your Cubby account will remain active until November 16, 2016, but after this date your account will expire.” Cubby was originally launched way back in 2012.
Since its debut in 2013, Cubby has provided a unique file sharing experience for millions of individuals and businesses and this difficult decision was made after much deliberation and consideration.
Log Me In’s long-term investment strategy is focused on three key technology markets — Collaboration, Identity & Access Management, and Customer Support & Engagement – and we are aligning our product development efforts accordingly to best serve our customers rapidly evolving needs.
Log Me In announced on October 18th that it would be retiring Cubby, its bespoke Cloud storage service.
Cubby will officially go defunct for free users on November 16th, and Pro and Enterprise users 30 days after the end of their subscription period, so customers have time yet to transfer their files out of its Cloud.
Features such as direct syncing and folder synchronization were unique to the service at the time, but quickly became common among Cloud storage services.
