What is 1Password?
1Password is the gold standard for password management apps. Most people today don’t take the time or follow the steps to be safe online. This is a problem because we share so much of ourselves on social media, blogs, and other websites. Time and thought were put into developing an app that was pretty, functional, and easy to use. The app works to simplify a complicated process, creating passwords and security answers that are complicated and personal to you, eliminating the ability to guess your answers and lead to your accounts getting hacked. 1Password is unique because they charge a one-time fee for the current version of their software, unlike others who charge a monthly or yearly fee to continue service. The app syncs through all your devices and even has a browser add-on to help save new log-ins as you go.
How does it keep you safe?
1Password is a central location to store all of your log in information like usernames, passwords, credit card information, websites, and the like. The browser extension fills in your information as your work online, eliminating the need for you to have to remember every name and password. This allows you to use more complicated and longer passwords, which are usually harder to remember. What sets 1Password apart from other apps is that you’re paying to use an app, not a service. They don’t have access to any of your information, only you do through the use of a master password with AES256 encryption. Your information is stored on your device, not on their servers, which keeps it safe and private for your eyes only.
Another great feature is it can generate passwords, which makes them less related to your life and more secure. This also works for security questions and answers. Instead of providing your pet’s name you can provide any answer, and the app will keep that answer with that question eliminating the need for you to remember it. Most people are hacked because their security questions are answered honestly, and using this app to generate answers keeps things secure.
How to use it:
Using 1Password is simple. In the app store for your device you purchase the app and download it. You access the app through a master password, which you create. This password is not stored or saved by 1Password so it’s important to write it down somewhere. 1Password has an emergency kit, which is all about storing your master password. Inside the app there are several vaults, which are used to store your information. You can break your passwords up into work, personal, home, social media, or whatever organization works for you and your lifestyle. Others can securely access these vaults with the proper permission, so you can share passwords with your family to access specific accounts and keep other passwords private. All platforms can sync with things like Dropbox and your browser to make sharing and keeping things organized easy.
