1Password Review

If you’re anything like me, you hate the fact that you have to remember all of your passwords for various websites, forums, etc. Wouldn’t it be great if every website would use one master-like sign in, so your username and password would be the same everywhere? Of course it would, but unfortunately, that’s not gonna happen. Not anytime soon at least. However, you could use a brilliant alternative, like 1Password. This application saves all of your passwords in one place, and keeps them secure. If you own an iOS device, I think you should really check out this app from AgileBits.

Think of one password that only you will know, and use it to lock 1Password. Store all other usernames and passwords in the app, and you can be sure that you will never forget your sign-in data. The app is available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple iPad, and it’s now been optimized for the iPhone 5. Besides passwords, you can create data for bank accounts, credit cards, secure notes, and much more.

While you’re using the application, you can generate unique passwords for each service and site you visit, all the while storing data using military grade 256-bit AES protection. You can also sync with iCloud and Dropbox services without any fees.

This is extremely useful if you’re forgetful like me. Instead of having to memorize passwords for Facebook, Twitter, G-mail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, iCloud, Dropbox, and all those other favorite services, simply create one master-password for this application, and you’re good to go. I remember that Blackberry OS’s had a built in app like this, and I also remember that their app was the only reason I regretted exchanging my Blackberry for an iPhone. Now, it’s an all-in-one package.

    Great review. I am using a password manager that offers almost the same features except for the master password format. SplashData’s SplashID has a pattern-lock master key instead. It’s equally secure with quite an enjoyable user experience instead of the usual password.
