Abine Blur has rather stringent credit card authorization protocols in place for security reasons, and one of those steps is an AVS check, which they require in order to authenticate and charge a credit card that has been placed on file with us. Unfortunately, the vast majority of non-US card issuers do not enable an AVS check, which means that the vast majority of overseas customers are unable to sign up for and pay a premium subscription.
Blur’s premium features are also restricted outside of the United States, with masked cards only working with a valid U.S. billing address and masked phone only working in select non-U.S. locations, among other restrictions. The option to backup and sync your account information, on the other hand, is a paid function that would be available to anyone in any country.

As they do not handle subscription billing in these cases, they will not be able to offer you any discounts for the lack of full premium coverage if you are located outside of the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, you may be able to sign up successfully through their mobile app (available through GooglePlay or the Appstore), as they do not handle subscription billing there.
You can also email [email protected] with your country included if you’d like to be added to a list of international users who would like to be notified when the full set of Blur’s premium features becomes available in their region. They will be in touch with you as soon as Blur premium becomes available in your region!
Why Abine Blur ? Is Blur premium worth it?

When compared to the other password managers that I researched, Abine Blur offers several unique features. It does not have all of the capabilities that we have come to anticipate, such as the ability to share passwords, the utilisation of folders and tags for the organisation of passwords, the storing of protected documents, or password audits (though it does warn of re-used passwords).
Instead, it concentrates on protecting the privacy of its users. In point of fact, it is more accurate to think about Blur as a service for managing passwords in addition to providing privacy than the other way around.
Blur is a web-based service, similar to LastPass. The following web browsers are supported: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer (save for Microsoft Edge), Opera, and Safari. Mobile applications for iOS and Android are also available. The free plan seems to have some value, and it comes with a free trial of the premium service for a month. It protects your data by encrypting your passwords, masking your emails, preventing trackers, and auto-filling forms. On the other hand, it does not feature sync. Due to the fact that it is web-based, you should be able to retrieve your passwords from a browser on any of your computers; but, they will not be delivered to any of your mobile devices. You’ll need to subscribe to one of our Premium plans in order to do that.
The Premium edition includes everything that is available in the free version, in addition to masked (virtual) cards, masked phone, backup, and sync. There are two different pricing plans available to choose from: the Basic plan costs $39 per year, while the Unlimited plan costs $14.99 per month or $99 per year.
Members of the Basic plan will be required to pay an extra fee for masked credit cards, whilst subscribers of the Unlimited plan will get access to these features at no additional cost. If you are not already paying an annual fee of $60 for them, the Basic plan makes the most sense. You will be required to provide your credit card information in order to download the free version in the event that you decide to subscribe in the future. You may easily overlook it, however there is a link that says “Add card later” at the very bottom of the screen.
