Bad Taste

about 1Password · · 2 Helpful

I have used 1password for several years (since 2012) and was generally pleased with the way it worked smoothly, didn't take a lot of resources and allowed me to fairly easily manage my passwords and be able to access them from my office, my home and while on the road. Along the way v4 rolled around and after evaluating the cost/benefit, I didn't feel like there was sufficient usefulness to warrant the purchase or upgrade. I continued this way while additional problems presented themselves (know logins asking for updates, duplicated entries, inability to keep from being nagged to upgrade) until last month when the web extension was no longer supported.

I'm going to choose a different password manager and won't recommend 1password to others.

Not sure about this

"As with past versions, 1Password also has a tendency to clash with OS X’s built-in iCloud Keychain."

Incompatibility with iCloud Keychain makes 1Password a complete non-starter for me.

1p costs are a little high -- looking at alternatives

about 1Password · ·

I've been willing to spend a little more for 1P, but it might be time to move on. At least it's time to start looking around. 1password is good, and it does work. If you get it, you can be assured, at least in my experience over the last couple years, that it will get the job done.

What I find annoying is their pricing. I could live with the extra cost. I figured, why not? It's important stuff. I want it to work. But... In order to upgrade to their new desktop version (v4) -- which I would like to do because of some new features -- you also have to also upgrade the iphone/ipad version. Why? Because they decided to build the v4 desktop sync so it's not backwards compatible with v3 iOS. Not just a limited sync -- which is all I needed -- just keep my passwords in sync. Nope, you can't do it at all.

The iOS version (v3) is unpleasant to use. Probably not their fault, given the iOS limitations. Regardless -- it's not where you want to invest a lot of money. But you do need a way to carry your passwords around. Remember that the point of systems like 1P is that you want unique passwords for all logins, and they are passwords you cannot possibly remember. Therefore -- you have to be able to sync iOS with the mother ship. This is not optional.

So -- be advised. Yes -- 1P has what you need. But if you decide to go with them, they have apparently decided that you will have to upgrade all devices together. Forever. So you'll need to just be zen about that. Maybe I need to meditate. This might also mean, though, that when there's another design/sales choice like this to be made, they're going to hurt you again, just a little, and you're going to have to tough it out.

I'm looking at LassPass now. We'll see.

It's too expensive

about 1Password · ·

Saying for the Mac version, it really is very expensive and complex. It has features that you never use.
There are lots of alternatives to it. Even for the one tenths of its price. For example: passlockerapp.com

Sometimes, there are discounts and you can purchase the app quite profitable.

This is a superb piece of software. I just cant believe that I have the app that is was looking for that surpasses all my expectations. I wanted something that would allow my to use the hundred or so Secure Notes I keep in my Keychain account in Windows in BootCamp. Not only does 1Password do this, but it also keeps track of the serial numbers of my software on both platforms as well as all the passwords I use all over the net. And then if I get an iPhone or Android it will synk with them too. AND, the security is as good, if not better than Mac OS X keychain. What is more the interface is terrific. I first tried it on Windows and was very impressed so then switched to Mac OS and was blown away. I was able to import my keychain, software licence details from License Keeper and more.

Awesome.

I just bought the windows app. I couldn't be happier with it. It clearly resembles being based on a Mac app, since the user interface is really nice and the app altogether feels very polished. It integrates with Firefox quite easily and personally I prefer it over Lastpass (haven't tried RoboForm).

Isn't there anything for Windows that is better then RoboForm or KeePass. I don't like either of them ..

Although it's a great-looking app, I have had several annoyances which are encouraging me to go back to LastPass.
First of all, 1Password only supports Mac (& Windows). If you have Linux and use Dropbox, you can only read, not update the password vault.
The second complaint is that if you're a paying user of the "Web Store" version (bought off AgileBits webpage), then you are out of luck when it comes to iCloud Drive and CloudKit support. So basically you're stuck with Dropbox for syncing. Dropbox syncing is not always ideal for several reasons. Being locked out of an alternative just because you purchased the app from the "wrong" place is more than annoying, it's unconscionable. I think they have their reasons for forking their userbase, but effectively it means that the product you purchased /from their website/ is incomplete and broken. They may reverse this decision, but it may be too late for some customers.

The app is pretty nice-looking as compared to the competitors, but I find the actual usage to be cumbersome.

The app extensions for browsers aren't very elegant, you have to right-click to activate it and bring up a sub-menu. It's cumbersome and clunky at best.

In an effort to increase security, the password vault locks constantly. So every time you go to use it, it's locked, meaning you have to type your vault password constantly. On a mobile device or laptop, I can see why this is necessary, but in your own home, it's cumbersome.

Once unlocked, and the password you want copied (also takes several clicks), the app sub-menu is still "active" so even though it looks like you're still clicked into the password entry field, you're not. You get a nice system error beep when you try to Command + V (or ctrl + v) to paste the password in. Back to the mouse, then click the password entry field in the web page, and then paste. Yet again, more clicks.

The nice thing about LastPass is it integrates with the browser much more fully-- it performs autotype reasonably well, and there's no clicking back and forth and hunting for sub menus. It also supports browsers on linux fully.

It may not be as pretty, but right now LastPass is my password manager of choice. After the iCloud web store and mac app store version forking, I don't think I'll darken AgileBits doorstep ever again.
