We launched Backpack back in 2005 so people could “keep life’s loose ends together” in one place online. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have kept millions of loose ends safe in their online Backpacks.
However, because we haven't given Backpack much attention in the last few years, and as part of refocusing our efforts on a slimmer product line, we’ve decided to no longer offer Backpack to new customers.
Existing customers will be able to continue using Backpack as they always have. Your account, your Backpack pages, and your data remains safe in Backpack. You can sign in to your account here.
For those new customers who are interested in something like Backpack, we highly recommend checking out the all-new Basecamp. It does much of what Backpack does — and more.
