RealVNC will soon end its “Home” plan that’s free to use for up to three users and five devices. If you still wanted a non-commercial just-in-case plan, there is one, but you’re going to have to hunt a bit.

RealVNC users with Home subscriptions will likely receive an email from the company with the subject line: “Important changes to your Home subscription.” The email notes that the firm is “Retiring our Home plan” as of June 17, 2024.

After “launching a wider range of tiered plans designed to better cater to more users” and to “maintain a cohesive set of plan options,” the email states, Home must be retired. RealVNC, asking itself FAQ-style, “What do I need to do?” notes that the easiest way to avoid disruption is to upgrade to a paid plan. Switch now and you can save 20 percent, after hitting the big blue button labeled “SAVE MY ACCOUNT,” RealVNC suggests.
