High degree of security. Excellent password capture & login. Cool UI.
No Blackberry, HP WebOS or Windows Phone app yet. Different browser add-on interfaces. Odd password generation functionality. More expensive than competitors.
Solid functionality, inconsistent user interface however and a little more expensive than one would like.
1Password has a version for Windows and one for Mac, both accessible through a number of web browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari. There are also mobile apps for the iOS and Android platforms.
1Password goes far beyond a standard password manager. As well as storing login information in a “vault,” they also can store personal information, credit card data, bank account numbers, software keys for registered software and much more.
Never fear though, 1Password uses highly secure AES encryption to protect this information. The passwords can be stored locally, but they can also be stored on cloud storage services like Dropbox and then shared between devices too.
The password generator can deliver strong passwords for you to use, instead of trying to come up with strong ones of your own.
1Password does not have a standardized method of password collection either. The different browser add-ins and extensions do things differently with balloon-like pop-ups with Firefox, but a toolbar with Chrome. When switching between devices, operating systems or simply using more than one web browser, this different approach can be unnecessarily confusing.
The form filling function was rather hit and miss. Not all personal information could be stored and what information that was retained was not always added into the correctly labeled form field.
One positive it that the iOS version of the 1Password app has its own browser, so it is now possible to log into sites using it and to get around the restrictive sand-boxing policy from Apple preventing apps sharing info with a web browser. The app has very recently been updated to add new functions for the soon to be release iOS 7.
