Editors' Review

Anyone who uses the Web for a while knows that login information starts to pile up quickly. With online e-mail accounts, login information for online banking, and countless forums, most users start to use the same passwords for everything. It's pretty easy to see how this is a bad security practice.

Fortunately, you can download 1Password, which remembers all your passwords so you don't have to. Simply come up with a secure master password and then train 1Password to log in to sites for you. It integrates seamlessly with Apple's Mac OS X Keychain and generates complex passwords for you, making it impossible for anyone to crack your code. What's more, you can use 1Password's Go Fill option to automatically login to your favorite sites (think of it as super secure bookmarks) to get you where you want to be quickly.

You can organize your software licenses all in one section, and you can access 1Password from other computers, as well as sync it with your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad--and the app can now integrate closely with the free Dropbox service, for "syncing to the cloud." An easy-to-use Sync Conflict Resolver helps you manage differences in data between multiple devices. Overall, if you have a lot of logins for several Web sites, 1Password is the best software available to keep your logins secure without having to remember tons of passwords.

"Great product for secure passwords"

June 18, 2012  |  By karenkcoulter

 |  Version: 1Password 3.8.19

Pros

1. stores all my passwords so I don't have to remember them
2. generates secure passwords
3. stores all sorts of other info that needs to be secure such as ssn's, bank acct numbers, etc.
4. finally gave me an easy place to put all my software keys rather than have to hunt for the email that had them

Cons

Pricey, but totally worth it.

Summary

I've been a user of 1Password since I switched over to the Mac about a year and a half ago. It's been an indispensable way of creating secure passwords and not having to remember them. I strongly recommend the Mac version as well as the iPhone and iPad versions.

In addition to passwords, I also use it to store all those pesky account numbers (like a bank's routing number) that you rarely need but it's great to pull out my phone and get it rather than have to hunt for my checkbook.

"Fantastic Product and Excellent Service & Support"

June 01, 2012  |  By jusmikep

 |  Version: 1Password 3.8.19

Pros

Easy to use, reliable, syncs with dropbox, fantastic service & support, integrates with all major browsers and then some

Cons

None that I've experienced

Summary

Simply the best password manager and digital wallet I've every used. I've tried others on occasion and always came back to 1password. FYI, the only reason I've tried others is because of the price. I don't mind paying for quality software, but free is still better. Nonetheless, I haven't found anything that even comes close to the ease of use, reliability, and elegant design of 1Password. I use it on my Mac and PC, and my wife uses it on her Mac. It syncs between my Mac and PC via dropbox, which I already had installed anyway, seamlessly. Also, I once had an issue of which customer support promptly responded with a more than adequate solution. In fact, I was completely blown away by the level of service and support I received with my issue. Companies simply don't care about their customers anymore accept for a select few, Agile being one of them. It's a pleasure dealing with these guys. Quality product + superior support = 5 stars.

"A bit clunky"

May 21, 2012  |  By franklyre

 |  Version: 1Password 3.8.19

Pros

Keeps all of your password information as well as credit cards and software serial numbers.

Cons

The search bar does not work well when trying to search through all of your saved passwords. You will often have to log in twice, once off the the launch pad and then again off the tool bar. You should be able to consistently click on your saved password and it should go to the webpage and auto fill...it usually does not. Autofill is not reliable.

Summary

Overall this is as good as it gets for Mac... unfortunately. I'm still straddling between PC and Mac until I replace my final machine at which point I'll be all Mac. On my PC I've used Roboform for years and love it. The only option there is to save your passwords to the cloud and I'm not quite ready to do that yet. 1Password will work, just a bit clunky. I think if a little more effort were placed in the UI it would be smoother to use. It certainly looks prettier than Roboform but I would prefer it to autofill every time, one click should go to the website, fill in the username and password and open and only have one access point...either on the launch pad or on the tool bar but not both. Mac users deserve better.

"an app you must have"

April 24, 2012  |  By adrie2009

 |  Version: 1Password 3.8.19

Pros

Easy to use. especially the key generator to make a password which is safe. you can use the app on different macs, iphone, ipad and ipod touch. The same passwords on different browsers and macs. Remember you must use Dropbox to use 1Password on different Mac's or PC's.

Cons

The price. When you have only 1 windows PC it is certainly too expensive. But when you have more PC's or more Mac's and several portable devices as iPad , iPhone and iPod Touch it is worth.

April 22, 2012  |  By JBTennis6060

This a good program but when I switched over to lastpass I was much more impressed. I recommend you check out lastpass as well and see for yourself which one you like better.

"Simplifies your online experience"

April 21, 2012  |  By flymarines

 |  Version: 1Password 3.8.19

Pros

A very easy to use, useful program, which has simplified saving of the hundreds of passwords I have. Also has a convenient add-on for most browsers, which recognizes a previously used website and auto fills the password with one click. Contains a simple search feature to quickly find your password or website. Easy to use credit card and personal data entry for websites.

Cons

Add-on in Safari opens a new window each time you select a new webpage. Cumbersome to update passwords.
