Overall Satisfaction with 1Password

Hundreds of passwords. Ever-changing passwords. Low-security-strength passwords. Passwords that we share. Passwords written on post-it notes, saved in Excel files, lost in space. Forgotten passwords. These are the problems we all face in today's age.

I actually started out with 1Password for personal use. But I've found it's tremendously easy to separate or integrate personal and work data and information as I choose, and have begun incorporating the use of 1Password for all of my work--at home and at the office. As a member of the leadership team at my company, and the one largely responsible for operations, I use a variety of platforms--many of which are very sensitive (e.g., banking platforms, human resources systems, CRMs, etc.). Based on my early satisfaction with the functionality and security of 1Password, I am considering this for broader team use.
  • Simple and secure setup
  • Ease in creating different vaults for different uses and sharing/permissions across vaults for family or team members
  • Integration across devices (laptop, tablet, phone, etc.) is seamless.
  • iPhone Face ID integration
  • The Chrome Browser add-on works very well.
  • The password generator is great and very customizable to meet the differing requirements of companies/sites.
  • It allows for a variety of different "types" of password entries, but if you want it to work as part of the integrated login functionality for a site, it must be created as a "login," which can be counterintuitive and impact the way your information is categorized.
  • I haven't been able to figure out how to change the type of entry once it's created. You can move entries between vaults, but can't change the type, which results in needing to recreate and delete.
  • Certain sites' login screens don't auto-populate, you have to go into 1Password to copy and paste.
  • It's possible the functionality isn't as good using a Microsoft device (I have both a Microsoft Surface as well as a Macbook Pro).
  • The price is competitive with other providers.
  • Regardless of price, if the risk of a breach or stolen password exists for you, this platform should be implemented.
Prior to signing on to 1Password, I had only use Google Password Manager for SOME of my passwords. But it never provided an all-encompassing solution. I compared 1Password to LastPass when doing my initial research. I found the platforms to be comparable. LastPass, at least on the personal/family side actually is a little bit cheaper, but it's nominal. But I liked the set up of the 1Password Vault system and the overall interface better.

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


Are you happy with 1Password's feature set?


Did 1Password live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of 1Password go as expected?


Would you buy 1Password again?


Generally, 1Password checks every box for anyone that needs to organize their password inventory. But it also provides a great level of peace of mind, as it feels as if it is relatively secure. The Master Security Key setup, along with other security features such as two-factor authentication, auto time-outs, password generator, and integration with face ID (likely among other things) do provide a level of security far greater than what most people have by personally managing their passwords.

1Password Support

I haven't had to use the support team since using the product, so that's saying something.

But I did reference the FAQs and information materials to help with the initial setup. All in all, I found all of the information and clarity I needed to get set up and begin fully using the platform.
