If you aren’t using a password manager by now, I don’t know how you’ve survived. Maybe your memory is like a steel trap—mine sure isn’t. That’s why I rely on services such as 1Password, which today launched monthly subscriptions for individuals.
For $2.99 per month, 1Password is offering subscribers access to its suite of apps across both desktop and mobile, which means you don’t have to buy 1Password for every different platform you use; I already bought it for Mac, iPhone, and Android, but today’s new plan seems like a great deal because you’ll get access to everything without paying extra fees.
In addition to gaining access to 1Password across all platforms, the subscription also offers cloud syncing through 1Password’s own hosted platform, as opposed to iCloud or Dropbox, which are options if you purchase individual licenses. Some of the other perks to subscribing are similar to those introduced with 1Password’s family and team plans, which cost $5.99 per month, and includes built-in syncing, data loss protection, item history, and brand new multi-factor security.
If you own the standalone and mobile apps, 1Password is (unsurprisingly) urging customers to upgrade to the subscription plans. The service even has a guide for migrating your 1Password data to your new subscription account if you so choose.
For a limited time, 1Password is offering six free months of service until Sept. 21.
