    "I do not worry about passwords anymore!"

    October 25, 2010  |   By RobertS440

    Pros

    I can have the program generate any length password, it records it and fills in my name and password if I ask it to the next time I want to enter the site. I can configure it to ask for my master password before it fills in my information.

    Cons

    I guess what I do not like about the software is when I launch it, it locks itself after a brief amount of time. I can change the amount of time but I bought it to protect myself from choosing the same password all of the time. I resent but use it!

    Summary

    My wife and I use several electronic devices. Two iPhones, two Mac's and a PC. I have 1Password installed on each so that we do not have to remember more than the one password, the master password. I have several 32 character passwords that I would never have used but the program remembers them all, every time on each device. I sync all of my devices through Dropbox which integrates with 1Password like they were the same company. I could use another cloud storage box but I prefer this one because if its close integration.

    I have retrieved a password, needed but rarely used, on my iPhone. Later, my wife asked me to install some software on her PC, to verify it was working properly, I needed to log into her financial account which I had never done before but 1Password simply filled in the fields when I let it.

    Before 1Password, I told everyone to never use the same password for different accounts, etc., but I almost always did. I had two! Now, each account has a different password usually no less than 15 characters. I do not have to remember any of them except my master password.

    Great software! The only reason that I do not give it five stars is that it does not prepare breakfast.
