I don’t really understand why AgileBits would go to a subscription model right now. Perhaps it does make since for families as a way for one family “admin” person to keep everyone secure.

I don’t understand it either. I read 2 years ago Agilebits have accepted outside funding from Accel Partners. They had never gone that route prior to 2019.

Well, Agilebits has had subscriptions for a LONG time.

The change is that they are dropping perpetual licensing, and the company explained why in a long post linked in I think the second paragraph of the very first post here.

You draw your own conclusions after reading it yourself, but it's very much for the same reasons other software companies do it: consumers like it and hence it's more profitable for them.
