Comments: For the most part, this app is 'flawless' and is a vital everyday experience on each and every internet visit. You 'must' however, be 'religious' with your execution and interaction with the program... garbage in <--> garbage out. It almost goes without saying.... but just like you should 'organize' and categorize all of your photos, music tracks, file structures.... you still have to keep on top of managing all of your 'secure' information. This app will help with that, but just like the ab cruncher doesn't actually get you flat abs, you still have to do ALL of the reps, every day, for a year or two. I keep 'everything' in the is app. Passports, Drivers Licence, Birth Certificates, Credit Cards... I mean 'everything'...... (including scanned PDF copies of the original documents)... and this is where it gets a bit 'messy'. They 'used' to keep each record with each document embedded, but they recently changed the documents to appear as 'separate' entries with hyperlinks to those documents.... so now, you have to edit in a link to your document, but to get 'back' to your record, you also have to edit in a link back!!!... (not to mention scanning all of your documents).... it's a huge pain in the rear. Plus, you will be continually weeding and sorting duplicate passwords, weak passwords, and compromised passwords. They do include 'tools' to use with this, including sorting by date, so that can make things easier... but if you don't keep on top of it, it gets away.

Pros: Security, All in one place. Don't need to remember more than one password. Multi-Platform (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android), multi-browser (Safari, Chrome, Opera, Firefox etc)... Convenience of having everything with you, all of the time. Makes creating new passwords a breeze, so joining sites etc, is easy.

Cons: Doesn't 'always' work with web pages. Can get 'messy'. Yet another blood sucking leech on your bank account. Your master password needs to be 'strong' (long, multi character, mix of words, numbers, symbols).... and you must continually enter it - unless you have a fingerprint or face recognition option. Limited categories. If you want to keep the make and model of your car for example, you'll have to settle for a 'generic' note... SplashID has 'better' categories.

Probably the best password manager out there. Works across any devices and operating systems.

Pros: 1Password is a great way to manage and generate strong passwords. It is available as a stand alone application for Windows, Mac and Linux, as a browser plugin for most of the popular browsers out there (like Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Brave, etc) and it has native mobile apps for iOS and Android users.

Besides generating and storing passwords, it can also store secure notes, credit/debit cards, ftp logins and many others. It's really well thought out and works seamless across all devices.

On iOS, it recently got an OS integration where you can autofill within most of your mobile apps which makes the process of sign in very easy and effortless. There is a similar process for Android users also.

If you are more conscious of where all this data is stored and trust Dropbox with this precious information, you can keep your vault (the place were all this information is stored), inside your dropbox account giving you more control with were your important data is stored.

Cons: There is no major issue to mention here. I do have to say that pricing is a bit on the up side of things. They moved to a subscription model which it's a bit expensive from my point of view.

The good thing about their pricing structure is that you can buy a stand alone license for the current major version. This gives you lifetime access to this version and all the incremental updates that come along with it. They are pushing really hard for subscriptions and it's harder to actually find how to purchase the stand alone license.

Overall: Great password management for anyone.

Pros: - Sharing and collaboration are key advantages to their solution while security is still a top priority. Any folder can be easily shared or unshared. Folders can be shared with team members and even a guest.

- Flexibility in managing access to vaults. I can create vaults that are by default accessible by other administrators. Thus, I can give my twin brother (an administrator) immediate access when creating the vault. It is just as easy to uncheck the box to give other administrators access which turns the vault into a private one that I only have access to.

- Managing user access for team members is easy and intuitive. Once the vault is created, you can click on the settings for the vault from the main dashboard and add team members to have access. Once access is granted to a vault, the team member gets immediate access. Team members don't need to wait around for changes to propagate to their user's access.

- Editing and using login credential from the website is really easy. I enjoy how you can copy the pass with it being kept secret. Only when necessary, you can easily click a button to reveal the password. This makes it easier to collaborate with team members present while not compromising security.

Cons: - If you have a guest user, they can only have access to one vault. It doesn't say this in the interface, but after a few times of trying to give a guest user access to a second vault and 1pass changing the access to the new vault only and removing access from the old one, I am pretty confident this is the intended functionality that isn't apparent within their UI.

- Unable to move an item from one vault to another. Instead, if you want to item an item from one vault to another, you need to create a new duplicate item in the new vault and then delete the old one.

Overall: My twin brother and I are entrepreneurs and have a venture studio. We partner with startup companies and help them build their businesses. Accordingly, we needed a solution where sharing of login credentials and secret notes worked smoothly with robust flexibility for managing user access. After using competing solutions, we realized team collaboration was not a core value of the other solutions. Fortunately, we discovered 1password and all of our desires have been fulfilled.

While my brother and I both of our own private login credentials for various services, a vast majority of logins credentials are shared. We soon realized that sharing login credentials with our team members was a fundamental way we operated. 1password provides the best and most secure solution for sharing passwords with team members.

Pros: Firstly, I love the most basic premise of the tool: password management. 1Password makes it easy to generate secure length passwords on the fly, and then save these on first login. I can then access these passwords on any of my devices that I have connected 1Password to. Recently, there was an upgrade to allow for autofill within mobile apps, which has been an incredible time saver. It is painless to generate new passwords for different services, avoiding the pitfalls of using a consistent password. A year or so ago, a service I use had a password breach - however the password that was leaked was unique to that service which really contained the problem to just resetting that single account. I love the family account features, where me and my partner can keep shared access to the latest credentials for certain non-critical things like food apps or Netflix.

Cons: I have had various versions of 1Password, and at one point had a separate freelance and personal account. Merging things hasn't been super straightforward and at times I do find duplicate entries for sites, which is a bit of guesswork to figure out which entry is the current credentials. I've been cleaning these up as I go, but it would be nice to have some sort of 'de-dupe' feature. I was also having some errors with an older vault format in my newer account. Sometimes when saving credentials, especially from a reset email event, it struggles to save the username with the password, which leads to having to type it in next time. No major problems.

Overall: Dead simple password management, sharing and entry

Pros: I've long had a theory that website's attempts to beef up their security by requiring increasingly more complex passwords has led to a DECREASE in security. There is no way the average human can remember 50+ complex passwords, so they instead do stupid things like writing passwords on sticky notes and/or using the same password across every website they use (meaning that if one is breached, which is inevitable, then essentially they all are).

Enter the hero of this sad tale--1Password! I have used this software for years now, and I recently upgraded to the family account to get my wife on board. As a result, I use a different ridiculously complex and secure password for every website I visit without needing to remember any of them. I simply use a keyboard shortcut that will automatically fill in those usernames and passwords for me. I love it.

Worried about not having a password you'll need while out and about and away from your computer? Not to worry, they also have great mobile apps that'll take care of you there.

Also, how many times have you had to ask your spouse/SO for the username/password for some shared account (e.g., Netflix, Hulu, bank account, etc)? No longer. With a 1Password account, those can now be easily and automatically shared to a common vault.

Also worth mentioning is one of my favorite features of any piece of software--it disappears into the background. It just queitly and reliably works in the background with little to no upkeep.

Cons: Honestly, I'm stuggling to think of anything. I work on multiple computers and therefore need things to effortlessly sync between them, and one pain point used to be a sort of fiddly and unreliable sync using Dropbox as a bridge. The syncing is now rock solid (using iCloud, Dropbox, etc.), so is no longer a problem.

I have used 1Password for several years and it is the single best investment that I have ever made.

Pros: In this day and age, when I see people using stupid passwords like their kid's birthday it makes me seriously question whether or not I should give them my data. The best password is so complex that it would be impossible to remember and never repeated for any of your accounts. Four years after buying 1Password, I have approximately 400 accounts each with different passwords that nobody is going to guess. The best part of this software is that there are plugins available for most major web browsers (I use Safari and Chrome). When I come to a website where I need to enter a store password, I simply open the plugin by entering my "1 password" and the software populates the website. I heavily rely on the iPhone and iPad apps which seamlessly sync with the software on my computer. The software will even alert you when you haven't changed a password for a period of time. Furthermore, if you change your password on a website, you will be prompted to update the entry in the Software, which it will do automatically upon clicking "update." In 2018, there is no good reason not to be using a password manager. Remember, I have like 400 password protected accounts and if even one of those companies has a data breach, I'd rather the hackers not get into my bank, credit card accounts, retail accounts, streaming services, and all the other accounts I use. Agile Bits is one of the leading developers in this area and 1Password software integrates well with just about anything.

Cons: It's not free. Seriously all joking aside, there is NOTHING bad about this software. My main gripe would be with developers who require a password that do not integrate with this software given how important it is.

Overall: I can use complex and unique passwords for each of my 400+ accounts that are password protected. I also use the "Secure Notes" function to store things like encryption keys and software license numbers in case I need to retrieve them for any reason. I cannot stress enough how important this product is and the cost is less than a small coffee at many places.

Simply brilliant - impossible to live without.

Pros: Since every site really should have it's own password or so we're told by the security experts. Yet I only need ONE single password to make it all work and make it all secure. Who has the time to make AND remember a secure password for every site? Most people have enough trouble remembering both their email and their login password let alone having separate passwords for every account.. Enter 1password. A simple easy and effective way to generate strong and secure passwords that you need to log into a website these days. Hit a new website that requires yet another password? Open 1password, generate a password and voila. It automatically saves the username and password for you. Coming back another day to log in to said site? Hit two buttons, enter your master password and the rest happens for you. 1password automatically enters the username and password that you've saved previously. When two of the best in the IT Security fields including Troy Hunt recommend 1password, you know that it is very secure. Even better is that now 1password connects to haveibeenpwned.com. That way if your password is revealed to the world by way of a breach, you can find out simply, log in and change the password. This is checked against the constantly updated haveibeenpwned.com database (without sending your password). Can't recommend it highly enough!

Cons: 1password v6 was hard to for luddites (and those who have little interest in computers but are forced to use them) to use and understand. Unfortunately I've had to abandon a few 1password deployments due to the users not understanding how to use it. With version 7 this looks to be significantly easier and unlikely to still be an issue.

I simply cannot fathom my password management without 1Password

Pros: Even though I am a single individual I have amassed a surprisingly large number of online accounts. From banks, credit cards, subscriptions, online retailers, reward cards, etc. You name it. I currently have 270 individual login accounts, and yes, I use the majority of them at least once every month or two. There is no way in hades that I would be able to use unique and long passwords for each one. The password generator is a fantastic utility. I just look at the website's requirements and make the password the maximum length and complexity. Watchtower is great for data breaches that I might not otherwise know about and the "aging" of passwords is helpful to keep my rotation current. Storage of software, licenses, SSN, credit cards and the like is brilliant. I can fill in websites with my current info at one or two clicks. I was not crazy about the subscription change in 1Password 7 but as long as it stays at the current price for those of us who have switched, I think it is a good deal. I hope it never gets too expensive and we have no option but to pay or lose the program. I have been using 1Password since (If I remember correctly, Version 2 and have it on my iPhone and iPad. I cannot say enough good things.

Cons: I wish there was a way to stop a password / pin number being flagged as weak if you have no alternative to the length of the password/pin. Also, I would love a feature that made a smart list of logins that have not been used in a user specified period of time. Such as, "not used in 6 months, not used in 1 year, not used in 2 years.... etc. That way one could begin weeding out accounts set up for one use, and no longer needed. One could go to that site and delete the account so there are not "orphan" accounts lingering in the ether.

Pros: I've been using 1password only for a week but I love it already. I had no idea how comfortable it is to manage your passwords like this, not to mention security (It was not really safe for me, since i had like 2-3 passwords to all pages before). This software remembers and automatically enters my passwords to web sites and applications on all devices - the only thing I need to worry about is creating and remembering one solid, main password. What's even better - I don't even need this password in the mobile app - my fingerprint lines are enough.

This program is able to operate the password generator perfectly, adapting them to the requirements of websites. Apart from the fact that it is convenient, 1password is extremely safe. It also has the ability to audit our secret data. The program checks how long ago I changed my password. Information about the security breach is also monitored, so that I will be able to keep up to date in case my login parameters have leaked and whether they should be updated.

What is important, the program also offers a lot of tools that further increase security, including the function of analyzing the strength of the password and the website to which Ilog in (in terms of potential gaps).This software can also, for example, let the user know that a defect has been detected on the site he is logging into, and that it is recommended to change the password.

Cons: Not gonna lie, 1password is quite expensive compared to other password managers.

Nevertheless, I think that it is worth paying the price for comfort and safety.

Overall: 1password is an application that offers to be our safe on all sorts of logins, passwords and other private information. Encryption, blocking access with a password and with a fingerprint, help in generating codes of varying length and complexity of our passwords. It's all there. What's more? Easy backup and synchronization with popular clouds. Security, convenience and a multiplatform tool that I can heartily recommend to everyone.

Pros: 1Password is terrible helpful, especially for those who work with multiple platforms and online tools, just like me. By installing the software and its extension you will no longer have any password problems.

The only thing you have to do is remembering your master password to access to 1Password and then the game is done. Indeed, the software will storage all your sensible data, from passwords, to payment details and software licenses.

Save your credentials is much more easy thanks to the browser extension. Every time you access to a new online account, 1password will ask you to save your login credentials and then, thanks to the ctrl+\ shortcut, it will easily recall your data and auto-fill the credential fields. It's so comfortable.

For each platform you are free to save multiple accounts and information, you can also effectively organize your data by setting custom titles to each data series.

1Password has also a useful automatic password generator that saves you having to think about complex passwords, what else?

Cons: Sometimes the shortcut command didn't work, I still don't know when and why it happens. Maybe it is my fault.

To proper use the search function you should well organize your name and data in order to avoid any loss of time.

Overall: Thanks to 1password I am no longer afraid to forget important passwords, especially the ones related to my work tools. Every day I access multiple platforms and I guess I couldn't do it without 1Password anymore. No more sheets of paper or data saved around!

Pros: The first thing you need in this kind of software is a company you can trust and apps that feel secure : 1Password is basically that. It has an intuitive interface that anyone can use, it is beautiful and well integrated, and by far surpasses the "keychain access" and other built in apps by giving you control of what it stores and synchronizes, and how. I knew of this software because it was featured in one of Apple keynotes some years ago, and you know that when Apple promotes a software (especially one related to security of data) this means business.

Cons: I bought 1password for iPhone and iPad with the old pricing model: buy once and use it forever (I think it was an in-app purchase). I never bought the Mac version because I thought of it as being expensive and the integrated environment for Safari in MacOS didn't justify the price, as I always have my phone with me.

Now that the pricing scheme has changed it makes much more sense to have the Desktop version as well, especially if you are a family or a business. There are pros and cons to the pricing scheme but for some power users (again business and families) it's worth the money.

Overall: Seamless integration in all my devices, complete control of the information stored, transparent password handling. It is a very recommended software for anyone, especially power users such as businesses.

Pros: I help many fellow Apple user's with their devices across a broad spectrum of user requirements. The common denominator is that it today's online world EVERYONE needs a highly secure presence to protect their data. I have used 1Password from its first release, and it's an indispensable tool. So much so that to everyone with a Mac, I recommend it as the FIRST application they buy (subscribe), before anything else. 99% of people who come to me for help, when seeing the benefit, sign up for a subscription. Many of us complained, myself included, when Agilebits went to a subscription-based model. But if you take a step back, it is an incredible value. You always have the latest release on every platform, you don't have to use some other Cloud syncing option. For less than a cup of you get all these benefits. I sleep better at night when I've fixed all the vulnerabilities that the built-in security audit, like Watchtower, alerts have been resolved. With each release, there are major improvements. Hats off to the great team at Agilebits, Well done!

Cons: I wish there was a phone support like AppleCare. I also wish there were finer grained control (like ACLs) for passwords shared with family members.

Pros: It has from the very beginning integrated very well with my Mac products. I can seamlessly switch between my Mac and iPhone and access my passwords. The FaceID compatibility is a nice touch. I can store secure notes, passwords for all my websites, combinations to locks, credit cards numbers, etc. This information is all stored LOCALLY, which is very important to me. My vault is local only to my machines and isn't stored in the cloud where it might be more vulnerable to hacking. The password generator is a nice feature.

Cons: It would be nice if the password generator was a little easier to use. I can't tell you how many times I've updated a password using the generator and then somehow lost the new password (and 1Password didn't save the old one). The fill and click feature is also a little unreliable. Sometimes the forms will fill in automatically and then click to the next page. Sometimes they won't and will have to be filled in twice. It's a minor gripe, but it could be improved.

Overall: I briefly tried Lastpass and quickly switched back to 1Password for my team at work. Put simply, it's just more reliable. I no longer have to worry bout memorizing passwords or password security. I can make my passwords long and complex (and therefore more difficult to hack). Great product with great Apple integration.

Pros: In an age where passwords get compromised every other day, it is quite difficult to keep everything secure while remembering all the different passwords. 1Passwords is exactly that, reduces the passwords you need to remember to just one. You add all you passwords and sensitive information to 1Password, while generating very secure passwords then using browser extensions and mobile phone apps, you can login at the click of a button.

I like:

- the simplicity of the user experience

- the security and peaaace of mind - tells you if your password has been compromised or if you're reusing it

- the ability to remember all sorts of sensitive information like files and credit card details

- the availability on all platforms

Cons: The one thing that is both a pro and a con is the login process. You need to enter your email address, a 20+ alphanumeric secret key and your master password. To be fair, 1Password has done everything to ensure you can get all these details as faast as possible.

Overall: We are a digital startup, and with that comes so many passwords for all the email and social media accounts, online services, servers just to mention a few. In addition to that, some of these passwords need to be shared amongst teaaam members. 1passwords allows us to do that easily and securely.

Pros: Pros:

- 1 password, 1 account but different vaults to keep your passwords organized/separate

- Ability to share vaults, and thus decide what passwords should be shared with your team and what are personal, for only the administrative team, etc.

- Saves. You. Time. Holy moly you do not have to go through re-setting passwords because you simply don't have to remember a million

- Keeps you secure - I trust this product

- One of the less obvious pros: you know when you have to sign up for an account with a new platform and they need you to create a password with 20 characters, 1 special character, 2 spaces, 1 number, and it must contain French (okay, I'm exaggerating, but you get the picture) - 1Password will do that for you, and remember the unique and secure password it created so you don't have to.

Cons: Cons:

- The learning curve is steep. As much as I would like to, it's not software I would get my mom using just for the sake of it - it can be confusing at first

- It's hard to shop around for password-management software. Once you invest, you're kind of committed. If you don't like 1Password, it's going to be annoying to switch.

Overall: Overall amazing, and I'm pleased at how easy it is to manage passwords and vaults.

Pros: How do you remember the passwords for every website you use? Ask any security professional, and they'll give you the same answer: Don't. You can't possibly remember more than a handful of unique passwords, and re-using the same password across multiple websites leaves you vulnerable to having your account hacked on all of those sites when any one of them suffers a breach.

1Password has been around for years and developed a reputation for reliability (a critical feature for this kind of software!). Password sync seamlessly across all devices you install 1Password on, and its browser extensions let you enter the right password for every site with only a keystroke. And entering passwords that way helps to protect you against phishing attacks, since 1Password will only enter the site's password if the domain is correct.

Every version brings smart new updates to stay security-savvy. My favorite recent feature: The built-in "Watchtower," which keeps you apprised of which passwords you may need to change due to reported breaches.

Cons: The search feature can be a little clunky. It's important to title your logins appropriately so that you'll remember how to find them.

Pros: 1Password makes managing passwords easy. I have used this on Windows and Mac and Android for over 2 years and find that once you get past the connecting of online storage options, it is an effective and easy to use password manager. The password creator tool is probably the best feature in my opinion, its remembers what site you created a password for and you can easily go back and edit or change passwords on the fly. Syncing between devices is also a great tool, you always have the latest passwords and login info (as long as you have internet) The extension tools make it easy to log into various sites particularly in Chrome

Cons: Setting up 1Password does require a bit of technical knowledge especially if you choose not to opt for a 1password membership as a vault for your passwords The price is steep especially on Mac, even though it is a one time cost. Syncing is not always accurate. Though the password creator is an awesome tool, it can get messy if you create 2 or more passwords for the same site or login info, it will not automatically overwrite the old info that is no longer valid unless you manually do this. The Safari extension on Mac anyway does not work great.

Pros: I love 1Password and have been a champion of theirs for the last 6 years. I recommend to everyone that will listen to use them as their default password manager. Secure vaults and password recipes make creating secure logins a breeze. Sharing passwords / login credentials with you team (or your family) is also an incredibly useful feature in making sure that your credentials are top notch, but available to those that need them.

Cons: I wish they hadn't gone to the service model as I started using them when it was still just software you purchased, then got free updates one. Thankfully they grandfathered in their existing user base, but it would be a lot easier to convince friends and family to make a one time purchase, versus a continual monthly expense. The software itself is fantastic and couldn't make me happier.

Overall: The initial setup (going through all the websites and services you use) to update the passwords and add them to your secure vault is a time consuming process, but it is totally worth it. 1Password will also notify users of password dumps from prominent (and less prominent) site hacks. If you have an item from that site, they'll let you know so you can fix it asap.

Pros: Things I love about 1Password:

- The developer is constantly updating the software to keep me safe online

- The integration of Have I Been Pwnd lets me know if my passwords have been compromised

- Ability to share passwords with family members but keep passwords for me private

- Lets me know if a website uses 2-factor authentication if I don't have it enabled

- Mobile apps keep me secure when I'm surfing the web on my phone

Cons: Things that could be better with 1Password:

- I wish there was a better upgrade path for long time usesr who bought, all the apps, to move to the subscription model they offer now (I spent a lot of money on the Mac apps and then I had to spend more money on the subscription)

- Not enough categories for my needs. Wish I could create my own categories

-

Overall: 1Password has changed how I use the Internet...for the better. I don't have to worry about which sites use which password. I can set unique specific passwords on every site, and I don't have to worry about all my passwords if one site gets compromised. The interface is super easy to use and all the apps I use (Mac, iOS) integrate seamlessly. There are a lot of password managers out there, but this is the best by far.

Comments: I use multiple computers at work as a developer, and I don't want to compromise my security by writing down passwords - I just put 1Password on those computers. There are a lot of things I wish it _could_ do better, but they're not necessarily 1Password's problem. Some web sites restrict the use of special characters, or insist on their use (although "nectar,vineyard,oppose" is probably more secure than "/V>kTQnB4BU9", for example), so sometimes you have to alter 1Password's generated passwords by hand. Some websites don't work well with it, and many apps don't integrate with it, so sometimes it is easier to register an account at the app's website on a computer, then later log in, rather than attempt to register on the phone. I recommend the use of this app to my friends, colleagues and family at every opportunity, but most of them still insist on using the same one or two passwords for multiple logins because its "too much trouble", and the IT department doesn't care.

Pros: cross-platform, effortless syncing, iOS integration. Unlocking with the Touch Bar on a Mac, or with touch on iOS. Sure, now it is a subscription, but the syncing across multiple machines and platforms is well worth it to me.

Cons: It is quite complex, and some websites have weird sign-in procedure which 1Password can't parse properly.

Pros: Where do I begin? 1Password brings peace of mind to a world full of security vulnerabilities while making life so much simpler. Between browser extensions and their mobile app you are always covered with an easy autofill option for all of those daily account sign-ons. With the added ability to store credit card information filling out payment forms has never been easier. When creating new accounts 1Password auto prompts you to create a new password profile helping to ensure that every new profile is accounted for. 1Password is incredibly easy to use while helping ensure you never forget another password again all the while still maintaining top security.

Cons: The only drawback that I can currently think of is the change over to a subscription based service. As a legacy user I don't wish to have to pay yet another monthly or yearly subscription fee just to add a new family member to my 1Password universe. I wish there was the option for a one time fee as well as the subscription option especially for legacy users such as myself.

Pros: - Several templates ready to use, with highly customizable fields

- Intuitive Browser extensions, very effective 1-click auto-completion

- Secure cloud-sync

- Cross platform (Win-Mac-Mobile)

Cons: - No more one-time license, just monthly subscriptions available

Overall: 1Password is on the market since the very early stages of secure password managing apps. It quickly became the reference and set the benchmark for similar software, and still keep its leadership due to some unparalleled features. 1Password is designed to become the hub of any personal information that needs to be secured, not only login passwords. Its highly customizable templates and multimedia capabilities allow to meet any requirements in terms of storage. You can store passport information for all your family member, both feeding specific fields and/or attach a PDF or JPG snapshot of the documents itself. Every record is easily found in 1Password database through powerful search functions, regardless the category where it's stored. The most intuitive feature comes when you are navigating webpages, and 1Password automatically detect when you are filling fields with credentials and propose you to store them. So, you can focus on your activities, and foget that 1Password is there.

Pros: It's supremely reliable and efficient in everything that it needs to do. Plugins are available for all major browsers, and they all work well. The macOS and iOS apps work quickly and flawlessly. They are open about their systems for data storage and encryption. It's just never let me down.

Their recent collaboration with Troy Hunt to integrate is just one example of how they work constantly to improve their product.

Cons: It's difficult to criticise 1Password, but I suppose it's slightly too easy to become locked out of their web Team management console.

Personally I'm not a fan of the new pay-monthly business model. I sync using iCloud, and software updates are nice, but something I'd rather buy as and when I want to. Thankfully, they honour my original permanent license purchase to this day (that's for my personal use. We have a subscription for our team).

Overall: We were always nervous about sharing passwords by email, Trello etc. We're now comfortable knowing that our most business-critical passwords and data are stored with a single, mitigated point of entry.

Pros: It's wonderfully easy to use--the browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari are all extremely intuitive and fast. The "desktop" app is just as good, and allows you to quickly manage your own passwords and work ones, keeping them separate (each in their own "vault") without undue complexity. I especially appreciate the app's effort to track every password/login/etc. you've entered and possibly deleted or overwritten, as several times I've realized that I did that inadvertently, and was relieved to find the old password either in the app's "trash" area or in the history of the login I had edited.

Cons: It's hard to think of anything I don't like about the app. Maybe just the fact that moving an item (login/password/credit card/etc.) from one vault to another used to be sort of tricky--you had to right-click the item, choose "share," and then select "move to" for a given vault... and now I see that in the 7.x version they've made that action drag-and-drop. So I'm back to zero complaints.

Pros: I setup a 1Password account to be used as an account for a non-profit that I'm working for. I sent them an e-mail asking about non-profit pricing, and they responded pretty quickly with some substantially lower pricing on the teams and business product. I provided the necessary documentation to show that I was indeed working for a 501c3 non-profit and they applied the discount to my account quickly.

I really like the feature set of the product. I'd say that it's pretty comparable to LastPass in functionality because it provides all of the benefits that LastPass does (mobile app, browser extension, etc). I also like that it provides you with a custom domain for you to login with (it's really great to give this to users). It makes the password manager feel a little more personal.

It's really easy to setup vaults, and they have a lot of great pre-loaded categories of password types to use (Login, Web, etc) so I don't need to make my own templates.

Cons: I would say that the only thing that I really don't like about 1Password is the fact that when I login on a new browser and go to add a new password entry, the password generator utility sets itself back to the default settings (that don't include generating password with symbols). I would love it if once you set your preferences for password generation, that it would stay consistent among all of my logged in sessions.

Overall: This is a really great product that fills a real need for my organization. Before passwords were kept on stickie notes, in random e-mails, or just memorized. Now we can have a central password store so that if anyone who knows any passwords is hit by a bus, we can actually get access to passwords for key systems and services.

Pros: I love the 1Password IOS app. It has been my preferred password keeper for at least 3-4 years, and I doubt I'll ever change. I love that it can use FaceID to unlock the app on my iPhone, plus the UI is simple and easy to use. It also has a section for credit cards and notes, which comes in handy. I have 237 accounts stored in my 1Password, and it will autofill these in websites and apps that allow this feature. This beats having to remember your login for hundreds of different accounts. It is fast and simple to add new login information, which means I don't forget to do this each time I setup a new account.

Cons: The only thing that is a little bit confusing is why sometimes I have to enter the master password mainually, and othertimes it will automatically use my face or fingerprint. This is a extremely small announce. Other then that I have no complaints.

Overall: I was always forgetting passwords, or I also used the same exact password. Now I can use more secure passwords and I don't even have to manually type them in.

Pros: Intuitive interface makes keeping one's data safe effortless. Reduces friction for efficient workflows that keeps critical information secure. No excuse not to use random complex passwords for every logon. Great way to keep other personal information organized, private and backed up. Teaching family and student safe online practices with 1password as the backbone app. Excellent customer support and constant innovation. Latest updates to 1password in Chrome demonstrate drive for ongoing advancements. Affordable business model for families and teams. Watchtower is an added benefit!

Cons: Would like to be able to add images to secure notes, cards and memberships in iOS. Would like to be able to add 'loyalty' card numbers through photo of physical card and have automatic linking to loyalty company website. With a few tweaks 1password could also replace need for separate loyalty card app. Would love to see further integration of apple Wallet and Apple's Siri.

Comments: I have been using 1Password for a couple years now, and it is an absolute necessity! The funny thing is that I bought it 6 or 7 years ago, but just never took the time to begin using it, until we had a data breach. That was the catalyst for finally taking the time to begin plugging in all of our important websites, user names, passwords, and additional information within the app.

Pros: What's the benefit? - One location for all of our secure usernames and passwords - Not having to remember all of the different passwords - Seamless connections to all of our devices - Immediate backup and updates to all devices - Better security with auto-generated complex passwords - You only have to remember one password (make it a good one!) - Create categories for better organization - It alerts you of weak passwords and data breaches

Cons: It takes a considerable amount of time to set everything up, and it is best to have everyone in your family participate in the setup process. Bottom line... it doesn't work if you don't use it!

Recommendations to other buyers: Get the 1Password browser extensions and the smartphone app, and immediately connect it all to DropBox for an encrypted backup file. This will allow all of your devices to be synced in seconds every time you add or update a password.

Pros: As a freelancer, I'm constantly trying new services and setting up various accounts for my clients. I typically have around 14 new logins a month and have a total of around 1,200 logins.

1Password is simple to use and it keeps my logins secure.

A simple cmd+\ either brings up 1Password mini with suggestions based on the website you're on, or auto-fills if there's only one login matching that domain.

Their password generator is excellent, both the traditional random character passwords, as well as their random words password generator.

Password sync between computer and phone is quite handy.

Using 1Password for auto-filling credit card info is nice and easy too.

Cons: If I had one gripe it's that I don't use their tagging and vault features as well as I should. That's not their fault, but it's the closest thing to a "con" I can think of.

Overall: 1Password enables me to create, manage, and use a ton of passwords without it being a hassle.

Pros: I love the face-recognition feature that makes it work so well on my iPhone. I haven't had to remember a password (other than the 1) since I got this. I like that it keeps a record of old passwords in case there's ever one of those forms that makes you enter the old one before you can change the password. I've had sites glitch out and 1Password has saved me from the hassle of using "Forgot Password" links to questions or email verifications.

Cons: The initial set up is an ongoing process as you get all of your daily logins loaded as well as the random outliers. But if you stick with it you will find that it is an amazing product and it saves you all kinds of time in the long run.

Overall: I haven't had to remember a password (other than the 1) since I got this.

Pros: I was "that guy" that the panic mongers warn you about - I could not remember 100+ unique passwords for every single site I logged into, so I used the same 3 for ... everything. Foolish? Yes, probably, but the only alternative was to keep them all written down somewhere where they could be found, so ... what to do? 1Password was built for this exact problem, and it solves it beautifully. My spouse and I have a shared account, so we can both access the financials and other joint stuff equally well - previously impossible when I had the (lame) passwords in my head.

Cons: There was something of a learning curve. I saw another reviewer mention that the Chrome extension is not user-friendly, I 100% agree with that. I was really very frustrated until I just went ahead with the membership plan. Haven't had any trouble since. But it did take quite a while to figure out, and the "help" and "FAQ" materials that were available at the time confused me more than they helped me. They may (probably have) improved since then, since my problems were well over a year ago.

Pros: Makes it so nice for me to manage hundreds of logins across all the tools I use.

I can setup vaults for each of my clients and save all of their logins during the onboarding process.

Between myself and clients, there's over 1000 logins I would need to manage - can't imagine having to do any other way. 1Password saves so much time.

Super simple to save, edit, and use logins across sites.

Works well on mobile when you need passwords on the go.

Cons: I used tags poorly when I first started and now I have a mess of them. It's tough to bulk edit and remove tags to clean up my vaults, but that's my own fault. Would be nice to be able to clean those up more easily though.

Overall: I've used most of the other big competitors, and I found 1Password to be the most user friendly for both personal and business. If a friend or client still manages passwords in a notebook or some other primitive method, I feel compelled to tell them to stop and start using 1Password immediately.

Pros: When researching for a password manager, I found that 1Password is one of the best password managers to use out there; some of the great features for using 1Password that for the first time I have ever seen that a password manager is compatible with Mac, which is so great since I use my Mac for work related issues and personal use as well. 1Password has great customer support, unlimited password storage with 1GB document storage which I think its there cloud storage that they offer, A travel mode which I can remove important data from my device and I can retrieve it later, 1-year turn around to retrieve any lost passwords, two factor authentication that gives me the peace of mind when accessing the 1Password from any device, Cross-platform user, and Lastly, 1Password is compatible with various operating systems such as IOS, Android, Chrome, Windows,Mac and etc.

Cons: I have not found any issues using 1Password

Overall: One of the most important reasons on choosing 1Passwords is that, i am able to securely access my documents and other things and prevent myself from being breached in this time where its highly likely; I recommend other users out there to utilize 1Password that will help them manage thier passwords for all web logins.

Comments: It stores all of my important digital info while making it available at the touch of a keystroke - but only for me. It's a definite "sword in the stone" type dynamic.

Pros: Fluid integration with macOS and iOS. WatchTower feature audits all of my passwords for weaknesses as well as websites that were comprised. I love the password generator, and I love the various sections for storing other important bits of info that aren't passwords (e.g. credit cards, software licenses). The app is stable, and updates are fairly frequent. The company is user-focused and consumer-conscious, as reflected by its refusal to pester for app reviews and offering various means of licensing the app (one-time purchase and subscriptions).

Cons: I *guess* I could do with some theming options. The app is plenty attractive, so I don't even know that I'd use them. Still, sometimes there's something comforting about having options.

Pros: 1Password is so much more than a login database - one feature I use constantly in the "Note" ability. This allows me to securely hold sensitive client information protected by the same high security as all my own logins and other private information. In additional to that the same information is available across all my devices thanks to the, optional, cloud storage features. The login features work great and I use the list of saved logins as the equivalent of a bookmark list - which again becomes global across all my devices and browsers. I cannot recommend 1Password highly enough.

Cons: Clearly having ALL your sensitive information in once place is akin to putting all your eggs in one basket. However it's still 100% better than trying to wrangle all that information some other way, and I'm certain the basket 1Password have designed is very very secure indeed.

Pros: The ease of use is great, but the single most useful feature is its ability to play well with phone, tablet and laptop and sync to all devices. Having access to all of my many logins for ftp, websites, email and more makes keeping track of client info a breeze.

Cons: Not too many drawbacks - syncing seems to work most reliably if you go with the subscription model and use the 1password cloud. It also seems to work best on Macs. The Windows version is not quite as seamlessly elegant.

Overall: I have been using 1password for years. I started out using WebConfidential, a Mac app that was machine-specific. that was what made me switch, actually - the need to have access to passwords (easily) on more than one device. I have been impressed by 1password's development and ability to just get better with time. I could do without most of the apps 9or could find alternatives), but not 1password. That one's a keeper. I've tried a few others (LastPass being one) and find 1password a better choice.

Pros: 1password does exactly what it sounds like -- makes it simpler to use your accounts through the use of one password entered into the 1Password system. You still have individual passwords to each account, it just makes it so you don't have to memorize all of them.

Cons: I can't really say there is anything I dislike about this product -- it is so simple and does exactly what it says it will do. Some might consider it a bit of a security risk -- figure out one password, and you've got them all, or so it would seem... But 1Password locks them behind heavy encryption and requires security questions. It seems the standard hacker would have such a hard time cracking this software that they might just decide to move on (I couldn't say with certainty, though).

Overall: Personally, I don't use this at home-- my Mac can take care of this work itself. However, on a PC (at work), it is a necessity in my opinion. One password now opens everything you need, and each individual password is kept safely on log by 1Password. Don't worry about its security -- everything is locked behind security questions, and off the cloud.

Pros: Absolute security - nearly a decade after adopting it, not once has it given me pause to worry about security. Sync across multiple platforms and devices. Just behind (thankfully) the cutting edge of technology on the Mac and iOS platforms - right where I want my security app to be. I now have myself, my family, even my mother on a 1Password for Families account which bring a perfect subset of "business" features to the shared family experience. And now we're running with 1Password for Teams at work. I think it's a great value for the money.

Cons: Integrated browser helper not reliable on some of the more esoteric sign-in pages being designed today, but works great on any traditional username/password login page. Needs to continue to improve Windows app to bring it up to par with the Mac side, but version 7 has come a long way to realizing that.

Pros: I'm the type of person who, if left to my own devises, would use the same password for everything. In fact I used to until I found 1Password. Now, I only have to remember one password but all of my passwords are very secure.

I used to work at a retail technical support place and I can't tell you how many people how came in after a sudden death of a spouse or partner and had no clue what the passwords to the computers or bank accounts were. I started to recommend a password generator program to people, all people, stating this as a reason. For some reason, this would resonate with people more than getting hacked. 1Password is great for this because it allows for family accounts so you can share passwords.

Cons: Getting it set up and getting in the habit of using it can take a bit to get used to and you do have to pay for it.

Pros: 1Password lets me keep all my personal and work passwords in one application, but separated. Since every password is unique (and difficult!) when a data breach happens I know only one site is affected and only need to change one password. Time and stress saver!!! Their Watchtower feature helps identify weak and duplicate passwords and ones that should be updated. The browser extensions help put passwords right where you need them too.

Cons: I honestly have no complaints. OK, the international processing fee (mere pennies) for my bill since it's a Canadian company.

Overall: Being able to keep my personal password, my work team's passwords, and my individual work passwords in one place but separated into different "vaults" is just ... well, it's just really hard to imagine life without that. The password generator makes sure that the passwords are secure and that I don't have to keep dreaming up nonsensical ones to remember.

Pros: The benefits of a password manager are many, but I haven't shopped around enough to really compare feature sets. That said, there is nothing I know I want that 1Password doesn't have. I started using it when the focus was still largely on the Apple ecosystem, but I now happily use the chrome and cli variants on my linux machine, the android app (loving the ability for it to be the default form completion app), and on my windows gaming machine. I've also recently joined another company that was using it for shared secrets, and the single interface with clear separation between vaults and groups of vaults has been excellent.

Cons: Although I appreciate the challenge, I would still like a full blown linux (or at least debian variants) native client. The initial install process on windows via the windows app store was also a bit wonky.

Fantastic!!

Comments: I have been using this software for years, and I believe it is a must in today's world. Software for password management is something no person in this world(who is online) should be without. From my experience, 1Password is absolutely the best for this purpose. I honestly cannot say much of anything bad about it, with only one complaint, while the problem is more my fault anyhow. I have many, *many*, logins, and over the years my list of passwords alone has grown to over 2,000 items, while many of those items are duplicates. A feature I would love to see to solve this problem would be to sort out and find duplicates automatically, searching by website address, title...and maybe other details, but at least to include duplicate items from the website address and title. Once these duplicates are found, I could merge them, delete them, rename them, or just leave as is, whichever case would be needed.

Pros: Easy to use Seemingly good encryption and security Options for both cloud and offline use

Cons: Duplicate items are difficult to sort through and remove

Comments: Easy to install and they provide regular updates that make it easy to stay updated.

Pros: Like most folks, I can not remember all my PWs. I think while working I had 150 signons. Of course I wanted to use the same magic pw for all for them which I never felt comfortable with but did not have a solution. 1PW gave me the tool to take command of my sign ons. I love that it generates complex PW I can not believe anyone would guess and I feel confident that it is safely stored. I also like it alerts me to pws are that I duplicated and ones that have been compromised that I need to attend to. finally I like I can run 1PW on my Macbook, ipad and iphone . 1PW made my life better.

Cons: It annoys me when my PWs are either too easy, duplicated or compromised which means I have to do something which really is a pro most days.

Essential for surviving in today's Internet

Pros: This software solves a very important problem - providing complex passwords for all websites without having to remember them. 1Password auto-generates passwords and the user only needs to remember the one master password. 1Password works across many platforms, I primarily use this for MacOS and iOS. The user interface is very clean and easy to navigate. You can also create multiple profiles with their own vaults so you can have a Home and a Work profile.

Cons: Not open source but that might actually be a pro in this case. They are also slowly nudging all users to monthly subscriptions which I find unpalatable for a simple service like a password manager. These means a move to cloud vs local storage which is dicey from a security standpoint. I strongly prefer to store my vault on local disk. However for most people, the cloud option is probably just fine.

Overall: Works well but be aware of product changes which may impact your decision on which password manager. to use. Still one of the best out there.

The only password manager you will need.

Pros: Easy to use interface, secure AES 256 encryption of data and support for 2 Factor authentication when signing in. Available across different platforms and browsers. Autofill in browsers with 1Password extension.

Good support through Help Centre and community forum. Watchtower feature to highlight weak passwords and provide alerts when it's time to change passwords. Can also be used to securely store other information such as software licences, credit card details and secure notes.

Cons: No longer able to buy outright with one-off payment. Subscription only software now.

Overall: Have used 1Password for a number of years syncing passwords across MacOS and iOS devices. This has been relatively trouble free with minor glitches when upgrading to new devices being quickly sorted out through the Help Centre or Community Forum. Wouldn't change to a different password manager.

Pros: This makes it so easy to generate and keep all my passwords unique, secure and up-to-date. With the family subscription, I have non tech parents who I am transitioning to secure passwords as well.

Cons: Since it is a Canadian company, I was hoping to pay in CDN dollars. It is a little expensive compared to some of the alternatives.

Overall: The experience has been spectacular, from a purchaser to of the applications, transitioning to a subscription model, everything has been completely seamless.

Hi Tyler,

Thank you for the great 1Password review!

I just wanted to mention that we recently launched 1Password.ca data centre in Montreal that also includes pricing in Canadian dollars. It is completely independent from 1Password.com and requires a bit of manual work to transfer your account. If you are interested, please contact our support team (support@1password.com) and we will be happy to help.

One of the best password vaults out there!

Pros: It's self explanatory, works nicely both on web (using the Chrome extension both on Windows and iOS) and on mobile (I'm an iOS user). It does perfectly one thing - stores passwords. 1Password helped me to move away from browser storage, wouldn't go back now.

Cons: It sometimes still captures wrong data when saving registration forms and what is worse, does not automatically update this on the first login. Also it's layouts are constantly changing and this does not seem to bring additional quality, but brings a bit of confusion every time. Did experience some glitches and crashes in the last 2 years I was using it, but mostly it's super stable - never had a situation I wasn't able to recover a password. I'm also missing a function to easily store multiple password fields with different labels under the same name / site.

Took a gamble and haven't looked back

Pros: I took a gamble to enter the realm of Password management, after some research, I landed on 1Password, was a little annoyed to have to pay for a desktop version and a iOS version, but after using the product, I'd pay again if I had to do it all over again. Having your passwords managed for you is great and it's easy. Reason why having a 3rd party program like 1password as opposed to Keychain on Mac, for example, if someone gets a hold of your laptop, passwords will just fill in, but having an additional program like 1Password, it require a password to fill out the username and password form, extra layer of protection.

Cons: It could get annoying, but I'd want a password to always be required when opening 1Password Mini, especially easier now with Touch ID, and eventually with facial ID.

Pros: There is a lot to love about this software. The integration with all my browsers, FaceID integration on iPhone X, Vaults, WatchTower, syncing across devices, password generator... I could keep going.

This software makes it easy to keep really secure passwords for all my sensitive information and accounts on all my devices.

Cons: the only thing I dislike about the software is how launching a website to log in from the mobile app opens the webpage within the 1Password App and not within another, such as Safari. This is easy to get around by starting the process in Safari makes it simple to log in but sometimes I don't know the URL that I need to use and have to refer to the app. It is a very minor problem.

Thank you for the wonderful review of 1Password!

I just wanted to mention that if you would like to open the link in Safari, you could do that by tapping-and-holding the link value. You will then see the "Open in Safari" option.

I hope that helps!

Pros: I use 1Password across my mac and my Android Pixel 2 phone. It works great across both products and is incredibly easy to use. I've tried other password management tools (like lastpass) which I didn't like due to their design as well as the intrusive way they implement themselves on web pages (taking up space in input boxes). 1Password has been easy to use, provides useful features such as checking strength of passwords, and warning you when your password might have been compromised.

Cons: The auto popup when there isn't a password of the page you're trying to log into isn't well designed. It can be confusing. If there isn't a password for a website, I'm not going to want to see credit card information so please don't show that. Very few actual cons though.
