Likelihood to Recommend

1Password

Literally every human being in every single situation can use 1Password. It's well suited just for your average person who has too many passwords to manage mentally - name me one (non Ted Kaczynski type) who doesn't experience this issue daily. It's also well suited for teams as I mentioned in my previous comment in terms of collaboration.

LastPass

I personally recommend LastPass to everyone - friends, colleagues, and clients. It's a great tool that improves overall security for everyone and allows you to stop using easy to guess passwords across websites and apps. It's definitely one of the "best practices" for security we recommend to clients, so they don't have to use easy passwords and protect their own businesses.

Pros

  • I am such a big fan of 1Password. Aside from storing all passwords and making me generally safer from identity theft, I love their protection features.
  • I use 1Password for generating really strong strings of passwords. I also use it for storing vital information that my wife will never remember.
  • The family account is such a great set up. I can share passwords with my wife so we can both login to our shared things.
  • Easily creating multiple form-fill profiles
  • Manages multiple accounts/passwords for a single URL well
  • Auto-fill works well in most cases

Cons

  • The interface is sometimes a little confusing. They recently changed it but it made usability a little slower. There's an extra click now and some new categories I'm not used to yet.
  • Sometimes a password doesn't show up or isn't remembered. Likely user error but still

It's very easy to use. It have you the power to keep all your passwords, notes and forms securely with no difficult configurations.

Alternatives Considered

There are a number of alternatives. In particular, I believe LastPass is its closest competitor, then you also have the built in browser password savers. Those are not, to me, a viable alternative, however, because they are not easy to port between machines (mobile or desktop). LastPass is a good product, especially for free, but it just feels ineffably *janky* compared to 1Password. Like, it will interrupt you and ask to save your log in when you're just filling out a basic, non-login form. It feels like a javascript applet compared to a native application like 1Password.
I never was fond of the 1P's UI

Return on Investment

  • Reduced the number of licenses we have had to buy, as we are able to share log ins for certain sites, like Udemy.
  • I honestly don't know if there is a per-user license cost when using the business plan but I don't believe so.
  • The return on investment has been high. No negative impact aside from the initial investment, to my knowledge.
  • Much fewer 'lost password' selected in less visited sites.
  • Knowing that when I receive a phishing email regarding an account that I have, the assurance that it has in fact been hacked is incredibly slim.
  • I don't depend on less secure sites like Evernote for sensitive information and it is more easily filed and searchable.
