Likelihood to Recommend

1Password

1Password is a well-regarded, very secure credentials management platform that I believe is suitable for all use cases, whether personal or professional. If you are a user who is security-conscious, and who also has a very large number of active accounts to manage, 1Password is a great tool for you!If you do not have a large number of accounts to manage, or you find the subscription pricing model of 1Password not to your liking, free alternatives provided by Apple and others may be a better fit for your needs.

If someone needs a bot mitigation solution and they are losing customers/users because of it, I would recommend ShieldSquare with no reservations.

Pros

1Password

  • It's secure. 1Password makes no bones about the fact that its encryption is state-of-the-art (it has to be, right?). While my knowledge of encryption is entry-level at best, I do understand that 1) having a secure, encrypted master password file is key, and 2) this allows users to store unique passwords for every login, which means that even if hackers steal a password at one site, they can't use that same password to gain entry into all of your systems.
  • It syncs across devices, seamlessly. Whether I'm at home or at work, I can find every password in seconds.
  • It's a great place to store other information you need to keep secure: notes, software licenses, social security numbers of family members, etc.
  • 1Password uses Apple's FaceID feature quite well... now I don't even need to type in my master password when logging in on my phone. I just open the app and look at the screen and viola! I'm in.
  • 1Password's iOS and Chrome integrations are top-notch as well. Most of the time I don't even need to open the app -- I can just use the plugin on my browser, or iOS will suggest the password to use (again, with FaceID) for a website. Again, terrific time-savings.
  • 1Password's ability to generate strong passwords based on a formula may not be anything new, but it certainly is more helpful than trying to come up with one yourself. One click will suggest passwords that are extremely hard to break.

Cons

1Password

  • Price: 1Password is the best app in the industry for this functionality, and as such, the price tag is also among the highest.
  • Browser extensions: this may be more of a function of constantly shifting browser technology, but at times the auto-fill functionality can feel glitchy, leading to confusion

  • It would be nice to allow for more granularity when selecting which bots I'd like to allow through. I contacted support and asked about this and they said this was in the works.
  • If you select to show captchas instead of blocking, I feel their captcha screen could use some improvement on the UI/UX to make it more intuitive for users to know what to do. I contacted support and made them aware of this.
  • Would be nice to see captchas information in the statistics (i.e. how many captchas were presented, from what IP addresses, how many were filled out correctly),

Usability

Based on 1 answer
The 1Password app design is top notch, much better than a couple other password managers I've looked at. The app and service are very flexible, allowing for many different types of data storage. The browser extensions generally work very well, allowing for easy access to login information while using pretty much any modern web browser.

I haven't had a lot of issues with 1Password in the past, but I have browsed the 1Password support forums a bit when I have needed an answer for something. The support staff seems to be very responsive. They seem to respond to pretty much everything posted in the support forums.

Alternatives Considered

1Password

LastPass is a good free password manager for those just getting started. Its simple ability to share and manage passwords all in the cloud makes it an obvious alternative to 1Password. The only challenge is that it is browser based. For us, we needed a setup that allowed an app to be downloaded on a users' computer as well as their mobile devices for easier access to information and shared resources. 1Password fit the bill because we were impressed with the Dropbox integration and apps that sync in real time to give users updated login info.

ShieldSquare

We were looking for an API-based solution as opposed to a DNS-based solution. The latter introduces unwanted latencies, and might put our business at risk with unforeseen downtime. Choosing ShieldSquare was pretty straightforward as we knew what we wanted from the start. Also, their product and support teams were very cooperative and tweaked the solution to suit our needs.

Return on Investment

1Password

  • It saves us a ton of time trying to securely save, share, and manage passwords.
  • We are able to have a higher level of security by utilizing more secure passwords in a more easy manner.
  • We've saved time on entering passwords.
  • It is easy, when someone leaves, to revoke their access (though of course, they could have manually made a copy if they were malicious prior to being let go).
