1Password is a multi-platform, configurable application that aims at keeping your data secure with encryption, password evaluation and generation options, and cross-device password synchronization.
There are many security platforms and applications out there. A downside to centralized implementations that store all your passwords, wallet information, and banking data in a vault is the fact that your most valuable digital assets are all put in one place, which means you put all your eggs in one basket.
However, when connectivity to different platforms, online applications, and other accounts is needed fast, it is best to have ultra-difficult, randomly generated passwords that are safely kept in a digital safe box. The most important step when setting up your 1Password account is to have a randomly generated, really difficult master password. As such, although all your other passwords are going to be stored online, in your account, you can make sure the access to that account is tightly secured.
This app secures your account and after the initial, online configuration is completed, you can download a PDF containing the sign-in address, the secret key, and your email address. The master password is not included in the PDF, and it is indicated you write it down offline, on a piece of paper. As such, you can further write down or print the information contained in the PDF, and then delete the digital file.
The tool allows you to enable two-factor authentication, as well as perform secure vault sharing and multiple platform password synchronizations (across multiple devices, including mobile). Your data is encrypted and the master password is never saved, associated, or sent over the network with your passwords and notes.
Also, the app regularly clears your clipboard, as well as the browser input fields. Also, 1Password categorizes your passwords, lists the repeated patterns, old passwords, and unsecured website addresses, allows customizing and generating highly complicated passwords and passphrases of up to 64 characters, respectively, 10 words, and has a built-in alert feature that tracks potential security breaches. Plus, 1Password enables card, secret note-taking, and identity management from within the same secured dashboard.
As such, this application can clearly be considered a valuable asset and a highly powerful password and data protecting and management utility. On top of that, 1Password's price is affordable and the desktop program has a friendly GUI and is super mild on your system's resources.
