1Password from AgileBits securely manages your passwords, letting you sign in to apps, websites, and services with one master password.
One password to remember: 1Password manages your passwords and other personal data — including your email log-in, credit-card information, addresses, and social security number — and unlocks the apps and services it manages with one master password. For those services that don’t handle automatic filling, 1Password lets you copy a password to paste into the app password field.
Works within a browser: After you set up 1Password, install the app’s browser extension for Safari, Chrome, or Firefox to handle your passwords. When you sign in to a site the first time, 1Password prompts you to save your log-in information. For new sites, you can create your own password or have the app generate a strong one for you.
Sync passwords: With a subscription, you can set up a 1Password account, which lets you sync log-in information across all your devices.
One price for all devices: For $2.99 a month, you can use 1Password across all your MacOS, Windows, iOS, and Android devices. For $4.99 a month, you can cover all desktop and mobile devices for five family members. To check it out, AgileBits offers a free 30-day trial.
Difficult to recover a lost master password: If you have lost or forgotten your master password, you might be able to recover it from another device (if you have 1Password installed on it) or if you are part of a family or team account. But Agilebits can’t reset your password, so if you are locked out without hope of recovering your password, you need to delete your 1Password data and start again.
1Password takes over managing your passwords and other log-in information, letting you access secured accounts and services with one master password.
