Learn about the awesome features of 1Password
1Password is a full-featured password and identity manager. Thanks to a powerful desktop client and mobile applications designed for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Android, 1Password gives you a more secure, convenient online experience no matter where you are.
Take a look at the many ways 1Password can become an indispensable tool for harnessing all your passwords, identity, and personal information.
Automatically Save and Fill Website Logins
1Password allows you to quickly save new Logins from within every browser it supports. It will detect when you are logging into a web site, and if it notices a password you do not already have saved, 1Password will prompt you to save the new Login in your secure, encrypted data file to use later.
When it comes time to log into a site, 1Password makes it easy with your choice of browser buttons and keyboard shortcuts. You can also use our innovative Go & Fill feature, which in one fell swoop will instantly open the site for one of your Logins, login with your credentials, and let you hit the ground running.
1Password is the fastest way to log into your own world wide web.
True Integration With Web Browsers
1Password offers what no one else does: true web browser integration. Many applications provide safe storage areas for your private web information, but you often need to add your data by hand, then manually copy it back out when the time calls. We knew there had to be a better way.
We designed 1Password to go the extra mile and work directly with your browsers. When you need to log into a site, register a new account, or fill in those lengthy shopping forms, your information is just a click or two away, yet always stored in an encrypted data file.
It's the ultimate combination of security and convenience that only 1Password can offer.
Support for Popular Web Browsers
The password, identity, and personal information tools that come pre-bundled with web browsers are specific to their exclusive playgrounds. Your data is locked up in each browser, forcing you to find a way to migrate your passwords—if that's even possible—every time you switch browsers. With 1Password, your information travels with you.
1Password sets you and your data free by integrating with many of the major web browsers, news readers, and productivity tools on Mac OS X. This provides constant, ubiquitous access to your passwords and personal information no matter which applications you use to browse the web.
Strong Password Generator
Let's face it: the days of using your pet's name or your anniversary as a password are long gone. While 1Password remembers all your passwords so you don't have to, it also has a great tool called the Strong Password Generator for creating really strong, un-guessable passwords to keep you safe online.
1Password's Strong Password Generator is like having one of those really smart password guys built right into your browsers. Only, instead of cracking passwords like in the movies, our expert creates unguessable passwords for you. The Strong Password Generator allows you to quickly create complex passwords on the fly, save them to your encrypted 1Password data file, and automatically fill them into web sites. Not only does this protect your accounts from prying eyes, you also gain protection from keyloggers, as 1Password never types your password and does not rely on the clipboard.
And all you need to remember when it comes to unlocking your data file and using your information is—you guessed it—one password.
Rock Solid Security
All of your confidential information is encrypted using AES, the same state-of-the-art encryption algorithm used as the national standard in the United States (Fun fact: AES stands for "Advanced Encryption Standard"). 1Password uses 128-bit keys for encryption, which means it would take millions of years for a criminal to decrypt your data using a "brute force" attack.
Of equal importance is where 1Password stores your data: neither an Internet connection or online storage are required. All your data is stored locally, on your computer. Other password managers require you to store your data on their servers, which opens you up to many potential threats and problems, including:
- Trust: How well do you know the company?
- Reliability: What happens if the company goes out of business?
- Data theft: What if a criminal breaks into your account?
- Access: If you have no Internet connection, you have no data.
1Password avoids all of these problems by storing and encrypting your information locally. You have a more secure experience because you are in complete control of your data.
Securely Organize Your Life With Wallet
The Wallet provides a secure place to store sensitive information like credit cards, bank accounts, memberships and reward programs, etc. You can use 1Password's powerful encryption technology to safely save all this information and find it when you need it.
Automatically Fill Credit Cards While Shopping Online
Shop more conveniently and keep your credit card numbers out of business hands by saving them locally in 1Password's Wallet, then filling them into shopping forms when you want.
It's a more secure way to shop online, and 1Password's powerful browser support enables you to quickly fill in credit card information from the Wallet with a single click. Checking out online will never be the same.
Automatically Fill Addresses, Contact Information, Forums, and More
In addition to credit card numbers, 1Password allows you to automatically fill even more things like your address, contact information, favorite links, and forum registrations with just a single click. You can save all or some of this information in a 1Password Identity, and you can create as many Identities as you like.
Use one Identity for filling in your home shipping address and favorite personal forum usernames. Make another to fill your business information when contacting clients or registering for work-related services. Identities offer you even more freedom and security when browsing and registering online.
All passwords generated by the Strong Password Generator are automatically added to 1Password's History. This allows you to find all the passwords that have been generated in case you ever forget to save it as a Login.
For any information that does not fit nicely into a Login or a Wallet item, 1Password provides Secure Notes.
These allow you some of the text entry freedom of your Mac's built-in Sticky Notes application, except 1Password's Secure Notes are encrypted—like everything else—to keep them safe and private. Plus, like all other 1Password Vault items, you can attach files up to 20 MB in size to Secure Notes, encrypting them alongside all your other sensitive data.
1Password items like Logins, Secure Notes, Identities, and Software Licenses are easy to find in their own sections under the Vault in the left sidebar. If you want a little more order to your digital life, you can create folders and drag-and-drop any collection of 1Password items into them. Create one folder for work-related Logins, Identities, and Wallet items, and another with Secure Notes and Logins for helping with your child's soccer team. A third "banking" folder could hold your credit card and bank Logins, as well as your social security Wallet item.
You can also use Tags for even more flexibility. Add any number of tags to 1Password items, and 1Password will automatically create Tag Folders to collect them.
Access Your Data Anywhere
1Password has many solutions available that allow you to access your data anywhere you need it. With 1Password's applications for iPhone, iPod touch, and Palm devices, you can securely bring all of your information with you. With 1PasswordAnywhere, you can view the contents of your Agile Keychain from almost any computer if you store it on a syncing service like Dropbox or place a copy on a USB flash drive. You can also export your 1Password data as an encrypted web page, a password-protected PDF, or even as plain text to carry it with you on a USB stick or store it in your safe deposit box as a backup.
Automatically Keep Your Data in Sync Between Macs
Don't get stuck dead in the password and identity management water just because you aren't at home. In addition to letting you use your logins, credit cards, and personal information across many browsers on one Mac, 1Password allows you to sync your entire data file between multiple Macs with any file-based sync solution. Get started with our guides for syncing your 1Password data between Macs via services like Dropbox and apps like ChronoSync.
