Like so many things in life, it would be great to put everything in one mobile app and forget about it. 1Password does just that for all your most important information.
1Password is an app that stores information such as Logins, Secure Notes, Credit Cards, Identities, Driver Licenses and Software Licenses. The app locks every time you close out of it and it only allows entry again if you know the master password. The beauty of this system is that it makes you only have to remember one password instead of dozens.
One of my favorite things about this app is its syncing ability. You have the choice of syncing the information via iCloud, Dropbox or File Sharing. This makes it possible for you to sync your information securely between devices and ensure that your information is up to date. Like many people, I will sometimes forget a password and simply decide to reset it. The only problem is that once I do this, I will sometimes forget the new password, too. 1Password assists in storing the passwords as you change them on sites.
1Password is currently on version 4.0.3. The update to 4.0.2 that was released on December 11, 2012 was a complete redesign from previous versions. There is a favorites section for quick access to the most important information, a new form filling function and a brand new web mode complete with tabbed browsing.
Quite possibly one of the most impressive improvements in this version is the Demo Mode. Demo Mode allows you to show off the app to friends without revealing your secure information. Demo Mode is actually what I used to capture screen shots of the app.
This app is recommended for everyone – because everyone has information they need to keep secure. It’s easy to use and makes keeping information secure, easy.
1Password is available for Mac OS, iOS, Android and Windows.
