Overall Satisfaction with 1Password

1Password was initially recommended by senior members of the team to manage our personal and work credentials. It is just recommended, not enforced. It is used to save information such as login information, SSH keys, cryptographical keypairs, and general documents. It is in general a bad idea to have a single password for everything or save information in plain text. 1Password allows us to generate a random password for each used service and save information in a secure way.

Pros

  • Random password generation.
  • Browser auto-fill forms.

Cons

  • Allow text fields to have more than one line (You can use notes for that but you can have a single note per item as of now).
  • More formats by default (SSH keys, Blockchain keypairs, etc).
  • Save time filling online forms with the auto-fill in feature.
  • Not a single attack to accounts in the company (Password and 2FA activated).
1Password, like LastPass, is a closed-source password manager that works with a subscription model. 1Password stands out against the others for its Watchtower feature that will automatically warn you if a password you're using has been leaked somewhere, if you're re-using a password, if a password is weak, a password is expiring, or if you are using a service that offers 2FA but you haven't yet activated it.
I believe 1Password is not only there to save and generate passwords for me but to also help me be more secure by warning me of any risks related to my passwords.
I've never had any problems with 1Password that have required me to contact support. But from their frequent updates and their active blog feed I can already tell they are very available to help any of their clients.

Do you think 1Password delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with 1Password's feature set?

Yes

Did 1Password live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of 1Password go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy 1Password again?

Yes

I honestly can't see myself without 1Password anymore. Prior to using it, I only had like 3 passwords for everything, I had to remember them, and suffered the risk of having many accounts attacked if a single password was stolen.

1Password is perfect if you care about security online and want a great tool to help you with that.
It will help you generate random passwords, fill browser forms automatically, save secure notes, etc.
