7.4.2
07 February 2020

Powerful password manager; integrates with Web browsers and more.

Overview

1Password is a password manager that uniquely brings you both security and convenience. It is the only program that provides anti-phishing protection and goes beyond password management by adding Web form filling and automatic strong password generation. Your confidential information, including passwords, identities, and credit cards, is kept secure using strong encryption.

1Password fully supports major Web browsers, including Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. All browser extensions share the same encrypted data which means you never need to manually copy your passwords between browsers or from the password manager to a browser ever again!

Note: price shown in the listing is that of a 1-month subscription. To view other pricing options, go here.

1Password is also available for and syncs with Windows, iOS, and Android.

I don't get all the flack and bad reviews. This have been such an amazing tool for my entire family and part of my life for a long time now. It has grown and evolved, and I trust the developer. When it went subscription, I was annoyed because I generally hate subscriptions. But they kept a non-subscription option. Then, I looked closer at how much I used it, and how important it was to me, and how valuable it would be to add my family and share things, and suddenly, the subscription cost seemed beyond reasonable and better than the frequent upgrading cycles. I am all in—with no regrets.

Very disappointed - the program assumes control of your Mac (with the permission of Apple, of course). I agree that the quality has diminished significantly and it appears as if their standard solutions at their help centers is "Uninstall, Reinstall".

I have found that the quality of 1password has decreased over time. I was exceptionally happy with 1password 6. The new family features in 1password 7 are promising, and I don't mind subscriptions when they come with continuous improvement. But 1password may be one of the most frustrating apps I use on a regular basis. The setup workflows for adding new family members and logging in across multiple apps is poorly implemented—abounding in dead ends, inadequate help documentation, and user flows that simply don't seem to have been thought through. Basic features like autofill in a browser has recently broken and seems to work randomly. A day doesn't go by where I experience some obnoxious behavior. The apps no longer save be time. I hope this improves.

In my hands, v7 is not an improvement over v6. First on, when I open the application, I expect to see the last-used category. v7 gives you the whole collection, and it takes two clicks to get where you want to be. But where v7 really fails is handling mail orders on the web. It cannot deal with different shipping and mailing addresses, and the Safari extension is particularly useless in this function as well ad in others. Say you would like to log into a website for which all information is in your vault and ask the Safari extension to auto-login. Forget it, it usually does not work. Rather, you may even get a reminder that your password is too weak. I really do not need an application to educate me about passwords. When you are finally ready (after several circuitous procedures) to put in your credit card, the Safari extension cannot do it. The extension cannot transit from login to credit cards and if you search "credit cards" at that point in the extension, such a file cannot be found. Come on! At the end, you have to go back to the full application, and even there it will take several copy-pastes that will get you where you need to be, no autofill. I find version 7 frustrating and dysfunctional in core activities.

Hi there, vogtpk! I'm sorry to hear that you're not a fan of 1Passwword 7, but very much appreciate your feedback. I'll make sure to pass it along to the rest of the team. The issues that you mentioned with the extension are things that we definitely want to look into. Would you be able to send us an email (https://support.1password.com/contact/) letting us know the specific websites that aren't playing nicely with the extension? That way our extensions team can take a look and get those resolved for you. They'll also be able to help you troubleshoot some of the other issues that you mentioned as well. Thanks so much in advance!

I loved 1PW6 - and I actually bought 1PW7 and paid for a year. Since I forgot my password to access my 1PW6 data, I asked the programmers for help to transition my data to the new software, and their advice was useless. Utter failure! I stuck with 1PW6 until it did not work anymore (Catalina). Now I rely on other solutions. This was bad!

First off, I’m very sorry to hear about your experience, Agrothey. Because of how 1Password is designed, your Master Password is never transmitted or stored on our servers. Although this helps to keep your data safe and sound (https://1password.com/security/), it also means that your 1Password data can’t be accessed without it. You mentioned that you already contacted our support team about this but weren’t happy with the conversation. Providing the best possible support to our users is something that we hold dear to our hearts, so I want to make sure that I look into what happened. Would you be able to share your ticket mask/ID from your conversation with our support team with me so I can investigate?

I do not understand the bad reviews at all. This software has been the most valuable one I have been using in years. I even decided to pay subscription for the whole family, not only to support the team to continue developing this great application, but also because it is worth it. $2,99/month is not cheap but the support is the best I have ever had (response within 15 mins on a Sunday !!!). Users might disagree with the subscription price model (check the prices for Photoshop), but that is no reason for giving a bad review on the product.

Increasingly frustrated with 1Password 7 but it's lots of little things. Like waiting for years and still not being close to feature parity between desktop and mobile versions (e.g. how hard can it be to add "sort by date modified" in the mobile version? -- people have been asking for years!). Or how I never can tell for sure which entry will be highlighted when I go to a site with several entires in 1Password. (In 1PW 6 I actually added stars in front of my most used entires so they'd always be on top. Now in 1PW 7 they are at the bottom.) Or how the view keeps changing -- I adjust column width and it changes back after a while. And in spite of having everything like update-checks and rich icons turned off it STILL tries to contact various agilebits and 1password locations repeatedly. 1PW 6 was great. In my opinion 1PW 7 is a big step backwards. Looks like some features were actually removed (e.g. used to have much finer control over password rules on generated passwords) and family licenses are no longer available. And like others, I agree: the day the stand-alone license is no longer offered is the day I stop using 1Password. There are fine alternatives now.

I have been a long, long user of 1Password and initially resisted the subscription model; but I finally decided that, if you want good software and want to encourage a company to both become stable and create a solid platform for users to buy into, the subscription model makes sense. I purchased the family subscription and having two adults and a child old enough to understand the how and why's software like 1P is needed, it is a bargain. The app did have its issues early on in v7 and this is why I held off moving, in part. But now that I have, I enjoy the ease with creating shared vaults and knowing that it is backed up to the cloud is reassuring. I do understand that 1P v7 has some issues with filling in passwords at times; but have found most to either be issues not of their making (ergo, the site one tries to log into has updated/changed things on their end) or are quickly fixed. If you want to use 1P, do so, if you don't, that's fine too. That said, if you want good, secure software, you can either purchase the 1Password app via the subscription model, or as they do have, the single license version as well. It was never taken away (though it was hard to find). Just my two cents and thoughts.

1password6 worked great. 1password7 has had consistent problems filling in passwords. Tech support told me that I needed to redo all my backups and remove the 1password app from all backups. No backups are on local drives. Why is 1password searching my NAS to do its job? Very disappointed in Tech Support. So according to tech support I need to exclude the app and redo all my backups. No thanks. Version 7 sucks.
