1Password-5-icon-Mac

If you’ve yet to purchase a copy of 1Password for your Mac, iPhone and iPad, now is definitely the time to consider doing so. Despite our urgings over the years via blog posts, and via our podcasts, we’re aware that there may still be a few of you out there who have yet to make this great security investment.

Starting today, both 1Password Pro for iOS and 1Password for Mac are both reduced in price significantly. Now is a great time to get in the game, and start taking responsibility for your security.

The iOS version of 1Password is a free app anyway, so there’s really no barrier to entry. There is an in app purchase to enable additional pro features like Apple Watch Support, however, and that’s what’s on sale for half off at only $4.99.

The Mac version, which normally retails for $50, is on sale for 30% less, at $34.99. Both apps are highlight respectable, and make my life so much easier. Honestly, I couldn’t imagine doing my job, or just using my Mac or iPhone without these great apps.

Both of these apps allow you to do the following:

  • Manage passwords
  • Manage personal information
  • Generate secure passwords
  • Act as a Two-Factor authentication hub
  • Integrate with iOS apps for quick logins

With 1Password, every site that you log in to gets its own unique password. This is all secured via a complex master password, and the data can be synced via an encrypted database on iCloud or DropBox.

It’s important that every site have its own unique password, and that you don’t use the same password for multiple sites. That way, if one site gets compromised, the exposure is limited to just that one site, not all of the sites that you have logins for.

It would take a very dedicated person and a complex system to make this happen on your own. 1Password can lend you the peace of mind that you need in this day and age, where sites are under attack constantly.

I’m not trying to scare you, but I just want you to know how important it is that you take your security into your own hands. Stop using the same five passwords on every site you visit, and start protecting yourself—even if you don’t use 1Password.

What about you guys? Do you use 1Password or another password management solution for your sensitive data? Sound off and let me know.

    Yep, using it for over a year on iPhone and computers and a must for me.

  • Phozzy

    What if you want to login to a site on another computer? How do you know the password?

    • You pull out your iPhone/Apple Watch and look up the password.

        You literally answered his question 2 seconds faster than me lol

      • Niclas

        OR you use 1PasswordAnywhere;
        1. Log in to your Dropbox website.
        2. Click 1Password.agilekeychain
        3. Click 1Password.html
        4. Enter your Master Password.
        5. Access all your 1Password data.

    • Marcus

      You have to open the app on your phone and check what the password is. If you don’t have your phone, you’re out of luck.

    Is the in app upgrade worthwhile? Can I see passwords on the watch app without any verification with the upgrade?

    • Niclas

      Not really, you need the upgrade if you want AW support.

  • besrate hogsa

    Thanks for reminding me
    I have paid for this app and forgot to install after a restore

    • Niclas

      • besrate hogsa

    Where’s the love for Lastpass? I like Lastpass a lot and it’s way less expensive.

    • Niclas

      You know 1Password for iphone and ipad are free?

      • soundmanbrad

        It didn’t used to be. LastPass does fills in everything for me automatically and is integrated well in iOS. It works great on macs and on windows computers. I am very happy with it.

      • Niclas

        I know, I paid for it. But it is now.
        1Pw is even more integrated and works great on other platforms too.

    Yes mate, no worries! Att-iphoneunlocking is definitely one of the greatest iphone unlocking website around, or maybe you will use different unlocking site on the initial site of bing research.

  • Bakancs Csaba

    For people applying AT&T, if you wish to unlock any AT&T devices and must not do it through AT&T, you can always go to att–iphoneunlocking, it’s the site I have currently been using for unlocking quarry and my friends’phones, also the best unlocking website I have ever use, we are able to unlock the newest 6 and 6PLUS as well.

    Would be nice if you knew this things went on sale. Those in app purchases crap sucks as you can’t monitor it for price drop. Not a bad iOS app, but is normally over priced, especially the desktop Mac version. Guess will have to wait for another sale.
