1Password for Mac lets you keep all of your log-ins in one place, so you'll never have to worry about forgetting passwords again. And all of the information you enter into this app is protected by a master password, which means you won't have to worry about unauthorized access, either.
Browser integration: When you install the browser extensions that work with this app, you can store your log-in information as you enter it into each new site. You can also access stored credit card information and profiles to facilitate completing online forms.
Master password recovery: This program lets you pick a master password that you need to access all of the stored information in the app. But unlike many similar programs, 1Password lets you provide a master password hint in case you forget what you chose. That way, even if you forget your master password, you can still recover the data in the app.
Random password generator: In addition to storing your current passwords, 1Password can also generate new random passwords to help increase security on your accounts. The app generates and stores these passwords automatically, so all you have to do is let the app log you in to the sites you've generated passwords for, and you're ready to go.
Confusing manual additions: If you do try to add your accounts in manually, it can be a bit confusing. There are different forms depending on the type of account you specify, and it's not always clear where you're supposed to enter the information or which information is mandatory. Luckily, you can easily use the browser extensions to save your account information as you browse, which allows you to bypass manual entry on the forms, altogether.
This is a powerful and convenient program for storing and protecting all of your personal information. You can try it for free for 30 days, and after that, it will only support 20 entries. You can purchase the full, unlimited program for $49.99.
