How Does It Work?

1Password securely stores all your passwords in a safe and secure vault. There is no need to remember individual usernames or login combinations to any of the sites you are visiting – the only password that is needed is the master password to the vault. It works very simply by integrating all of the data from your web browser/s or other password manager products such as LastPass, and safely and securely storing them in the 1Password vault. The only one who has access to the vault is the account holder with a master password. The problem with trying to remember usernames/passwords for a multitude of online sites are clear – it’s nearly impossible to do this without writing everything down. All it takes is a quick and easy download and installation of the software/app to get started with 1Password.

Setup Setup

The first step in the process requires signing up for an account at 1Password.com. As soon as the account has been set up, an email message will be sent from 1Password to the account holder. Simply click on ‘Let’s Get Started’ to move things along. At this stage, a master password will be required, and once that has been done, the home screen of the user interface will be visible. Account holders can login to 1Password direct from their browser, but there is significantly more that can be done from the apps.

Features and Specifications Features and Specifications

1Password offers unlimited installations, making it a top contender for best password manager on the market. With this password protection software, it is no longer necessary to remember another password ever again – just the master password. Hundreds of apps currently support 1Password, including Twitter, eBay, The Guardian, Tumblr and others.

It is compatible across all browsers including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari etc. Other nifty features with the software include its biometric capabilities. For example, it is possible to unlock 1Password on mobile phones by using a pin, or a fingerprint. This software is compatible with Touch ID and it works with Nexus Imprint as well. All passwords can be stored in the secure vault, including SSN numbers, account routing numbers, alarm codes, form login information etc.

Users will be alerted to any security breaches on websites that are visited, with the 1Password Watchtower feature. The Personal Security Suite features a nifty tool known as security audit that automatically picks up duplicate passwords or weak passwords. It can then secure them with a Strong Password Generator. The digital wallet is a powerful tool that allows users to save receipts, invoices, credit card data and other billing information. The auto fill functionality allows users to complete passwords, mailing addresses, and other personal data at the click of a button. Finally, any time a user needs personalized support, employees are available to assist.

Privacy Privacy

1Password offers maximum privacy and security at all times. This is the bedrock upon which this password manager is built. The company that owns 1Password, AgileBits has zero knowledge of what is stored inside your 1Password vault. Only the user can access the vault with the master password. It is 100% private and secure and it is not saved anywhere on servers or in the cloud.

All passwords and personal information in the vault is encrypted with end-to-end software. The key to opening that software is the master password. The privacy is safeguarded and protected by 256-bit encryption technology.

Limitations

Windows Phone and Blackberry devices are not compatible with 1Password. Another limitation is the absence of multifactor authentication. This method of securing passwords and personal data makes it difficult for hackers to access data, by adding in an additional step via email or text message. This is the most effective way to guard against weak passwords.

Pricing Pricing

1Password is available in two types of accounts. The first is 1Password at $2.99 per month, billed per annum. This is a crafty way of saying that the cost is around $36 per year. The other option is 1Password Families at a cost of $4.99 per month, billed per annum. Here, the cost is $59.88. This service is available for up to five people. Both pricing options include a 30-day free trial. The difference with the Families option is that uses get to enjoy added functions such as sharing documents and password securely, permission control and account recovery.

Bottom Line Bottom Line

1Password is an effective tool for safely storing, managing, and sharing passwords and other sensitive information. It works great on Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS devices. 1Password offers a 365-day item history, 1 GB of storage, and full email support for all types of paid accounts. Additionally, both versions offer web access and off-line access and automatic syncing of data. As one of the best password protection products on the web, it will manage your passwords well, and keep your personal data secure at all times.
