One password to rule them all
1Password is a robust and secure password manager, available across all platforms and devices. With your master password and private key, you no longer have to remember any login information or credentials.
Safe cross-platform password manager
AgileBits' premium password manager tool packs powerful auto-filling, password encryption and security features, but falls short compared to competitors.
1Password is an intuitive and flexible password manager, capable of storing account information for all your online activities. Both passwords and account names are encrypted under a private key and a master password. Neither of these are ever stored in company servers.
The software also offers a handy browser extension. The extension remembers your login information, fills in registration or payment forms automatically, and generates strong random passwords. It makes the job of keeping your accounts safe online far easier.
Top-notch AES encryption keeps your data safe while in 1Password’s servers. It’s impossible to decrypt without your private key and master password. These two are protected by sturdy PBKDF2 encryption, which resists brute-force attacks.
You can also share passwords with other users, such as teammates or family members. However, this requires the higher-tier subscription plan, as the basic service has no sharing feature, unlike competitors like LastPass.
Where can you run this program?
The software is available for macOS (High Sierra 10.13 or higher), Windows 7, 8 and 10, Android, and iOS.
Is there a better alternative?
Yes. The free version of Bitwarden and LastPass offer the same functionality as the basic paid version of 1Password. Their paid versions are also slightly less expensive.
A password manager can be a necessity to safely navigate the modern internet. While 1Password is an effective solution, its limited sharing features and price point make it less attractive than the competition.
Should you download it?
No. There are less expensive (and even free) alternatives that are just as good as 1Password that also integrate password-sharing on the platform.
