What are people saying about 1Password for Mac and Windows

Rick Edwards Can the password file be moved to another computer - an upgrade or a portable? Can the program be installed on two computers (home & portable) with one license if it's only used one one at a time?

O I I just tried the 1Password on Windows 7 and I'm impressed especially with the Firefox add-on. 1Password looks like a good product and good deal on BDJ.

However, I want to ask the following questions:

1. I don't see upgrade options on your store. Should I purchase a full license to upgrade 1Password Mac/Win to the next major release?
2. I want to sync databases, between my home and work Windows machines, but using a secure USB flash drive (not Dropbox). Can I just merge two agilekeychain databases?
3. I need to open certain Login locations in IE instead of Firefox which is my default browser. Can I do this? (In KeePass I can enter cmd://{INTERNETEXPLORER} "URL").
4. I want to shrink the 1Password dialog as small as possible, but the Toolbar seems to block this. Can I customize Toolbar (use small icons, hide it, hide groups, etc.)?
5. I see that Titles of entries are stored in clear text. Thus someone may see all sites that have login info. Is that a bug?
6. Help states that you use AES-128 encryption, why not AES-256?

Thanks,

Agile Team Hi, O I.

If you have a 1Password for Windows license and want to add 1Password for Mac reasonably soon afterwards, we can usually help with that. Just contact us at supportagile.ws.

1Password currently doesn't include a "merge" feature. Even if it did, it wouldn't provide true sync'ing, but a one-time, manual "snapshot" of your 1Password data that you'd have to remember to maintain on separate platforms. On a related note, 1Password for Mac doesn't support storing your data on a removable drive. We offer Dropbox as the automatic, hands-free way to share and sync your 1Password data among all your Macs, PCs, and mobile devices (iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 7).

1Password doesn't support item-specific browser preferences. In 1Password for Windows, you specify the browser with which you want to open all your Logins when triggered from within the program. Of course, you can always launch a specific browser, and then press Ctrl+\ to invoke 1Password's "go and fill login" function.

The 1Password dialog box that appears when you click the 1P button in your browser's toolbar, like the 1Password program window, has a fixed set of tools in the toolbar.

The only fields that are unencrypted are those that are accessible through the history function of your browser, anyway. There's been a lot of discussion of this design decision, lately, and we're considering additional options in some future release of our 1Password products. At present, we recommend simply not storing confidential data (like usernames) in the titles of your Logins and other saved items.

Googling for "128-bit AES vs 256-bit AES" I found explanations that the Earth hasn't existed for as many years as it would take to crack 128-bit encryption.

For both of these security-related questions, you may find this article informative:
http://help.agile.ws/1Pas...urity.html

I hope that helps, O I.

O I Hello David,
Thank you for your answers.

My first question was if a paid upgrade will be available when you release the next major release of 1Password. I don't see any upgrade options on your store i.e. from v1 or v2 to v3 for Mac, so that's why I asked that.

As of syncing of my home and work databases through a USB flash drive, I found that if I sort keys by "Modified" column I will be able to update recently changed items manually. In this case I miss the option to open two instances of 1Password for Windows, but may be 1PasswordAnywhere will help here. Also, I'm not sure why Export and Copy commands are disabled for non-login entries.

Anyway, I decided to switch from KeePass to 1Password mainly due to the browser integration of 1Password.

Thanks,
Feb 20 2011 at 4:39am Copy Link

Agile Team Hi, O I.

There should be an upgrade option for 1Password for Mac in our online store (https://agilewebsolutions...e/standard). 1Password for Windows is too new to have a version to upgrade *from*, though. :D When there's a 2.0 release, I feel sure there'll be an upgrade option for it and, presumably for the bundle, too.

We believe sync'ing is the most convenient solution for the greatest number of 1Password users, which is why we're so happy with Dropbox, at this time. There are some technical reasons why 1Password for Mac can't store its data on a removable drive, not to mention the fact that it would make Dropbox sync'ing impossible.

1Password for Mac has robust and complete import and export capabilities, but import and export in 1Password for Windows is currently limited to Logins and in only a few file formats. We realize that's an inconvenience to many customers, and even a roadblock to some. I don't have any information at this time about when such an improvement might become available, though.

http://help.agile.ws/1Pas...om-PC.html

1Password is intended to help you fill and submit forms (typically login forms) in your web browser. 1Password does include a nifty auto-type feature that might help you fill other forms, as described in this article, also from the "FAQ" section of the user's guide:

Frank Stephens I'm looking for 64-bit support, I would prefer to use 64-bit browsers on a 64-bit OS. The support for mobile devices and Dropbox are nice features, but basic browser integration is lacking. I'm presently using Sticky Password (32-bit only at present), which automatically fills out login forms without any user interaction and doesn't require any toolbars, which is handy for IE9. The lack of a portable version (for a given platform) is also an oversight. A Sticky Password license is for one computer plus a portable version, which I've had to use several times when my preferred computer was down. I really wish that everyone would boost the priority of 64-bit support.

64 bit native support is overrated. Somne 32 bit apps are faster than their 64 bit versions. Many 64 bit versions are only made as people want them thinking that they are 'better'.

Jeffrey Goldberg Hi, O.

You are correct that 1Password leaves unencrypted the same kind of information that can be found in browser bookmarks. This design was done so that for everything else, we only had to decrypt the smallest amount of information needed at any one time. When 1Password is unlocked, everything remain encrypted except for the specific item you are using. This is a subtle security feature that isn't very visible to users. But if you go to our Knowledge Base article on cloud storage security you can find all of the details.

But as we move more toward life in the Cloud, we know that leaving information like the URL and title unencrypted is something we need to change. We will have that completely in place by the time of 1Password 4 (sorry, no date on that), and will probably have it available even before 1Password version 4 is released.

Cheers,

-j

Jeffrey Goldberg for the Agile Team.

S B Mr. Goldberg,

I personally don't like the idea of having links and tags unencrypted. Yes, "Unencrypting as little as possible at a time" is a great goal, though irrelevent here. I'm surprised that you seem to be arguing that a good way to uncrypt as little as possible at a time is to leave these things unencrypted!

The references you supplied makes silly statements about the relative security of 128/256-bit keys. Your references suggest the real reason for your choosing 128-bit encryption is that you're worried about small cell phones not having the horsepower to handle 256-bit AES. Seems silly, you're not encrypting that much.

128-bit AES may be much more than adequate, but 256-bit AES *is* required by the government for extreme circumstances. Your statement "Googling for '128-bit AES vs 256-bit AES' I found explanations that the Earth hasn't existed for as many years as it would take to crack 128-bit encryption" is both naive and fatuous, and I trust that you're much better than that.

Real security requires good key management, and I'm happy to infer from the reference to PBKDF2 that you're using an RSA security suite, though the SSL reference makes me wonder.

Thank you for your responsiveness.

Alas, I'll have to pass on this one.

Agile Team Hi, S B.

I don't think tags are unencrypted-only the URLs of Logins and whatever titles (names) you decide to give the items. Personally, I don't mind that someone knows I have an Oregon driver's license, a MasterCard, and an account at First Technology Credit Union, as long as they don't know anything confidential about those items. As I wrote above, though, "we understand there are some who disagree with our decision to improve performance by leaving URLs and item titles unencrypted, and that's one of the modifications we're considering for the data storage format."

The comment about googling for 128-bit vs 256-bit encryption was from me, not Jeff. I did that, early on, because I was curious about the arguments for one and the other. I'm not sure how to respond to your comment about fatuousness and naïveté...I truly don't think I'll mind if someone finally cracks my 128-bit encrypted data in a few million years.

As I wrote above, "In the meantime, be assured that no confidential information is unencrypted in the current data storage format."

I hope that helps, S B.

Agile Team Yudha, I don't know of any effort underway to create a version that runs on a portable drive. We think the "1PasswordAnywhere" feature built into 1Password provides sufficient portability, especially if you're using Dropbox to share and sync your 1Password data among multiple devices, because the 1PasswordAnywhere file (1Password.html) is automatically accessible on your private Dropbox web site from anywhere that has an Internet connection, making it even more convenient than a portable drive.

We've looked into various customization possibilities, and I'm sure some of them will make their way into 1Password in some future version. it's no small undertaking, though, because it'll require a simultaneous change to all the platform versions. To set your expectations, there is no information about what features might be implemented or when they might become available.

It helps to be reminded, occasionally, of features our customers would find useful, so thanks for letting us know!

Doug Atkinson I've heard good things about 1Password as far as password managers go. Today's offer is disappointing, however, as this deal is exactly the same as if you go to the 1Password website - where you can get 3 months for free. Bits-duJour isn't adding any value as they normally do. 1Password probably needs your credit card because if you don't cancel at the end of 3 months, they will then start charging your the $4.99 per month fee.

Richard User If you can complete evaluation in a month, it appears you can do so without giving up your credit card info. Just click the 'Website' link above; click the button (Try 1Password FREE) at top-right; and keep going. (Windows requires Chrome, Firefox or Opera) You will be asked for your name and an email address; to choose individual or Family Plan (or Team or Business under the other tab); to enter a code sent to your email addr. On the credit card screen that follows, click 'Add your card later'. Next you create a master password, and are told you must remember it (so why does the vendor need it?). After a couple more screens you will have created an account, have your 'Secret Key' and can download the software and start to play. (That's as far as I got, so I can't say when 'later' comes and I must enter my card info. Hope it's in about 29 days.) Remember that the vendor has both your Master Password and the 'Secret Key', so if you didn't want to share your credit card number you may not want to enter creds for your bank, retirement acct, PayPal, etc.

I suspect BdJ and 1Password share blame for the Fine Print items that likely don't apply to this or any other subscription license:
- Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for minor versions only.
- Support is provided up to when the next major version is released.

Must family members all reside at same location, or can I include my grown (and gone) kids on a Family license?

Robert Hare Thanks for the heads up on it being only a three-month trial. I will likely take a pass on this. Can you imagine the difficulty of after three months of creating very complex passwords choosing to NOT renew and then trying to retrieve (recall) all those funky passwords?

And ~$60.00 per year, year after year after year sounds like an awfully steep price to pay what I could accomplish by storing my PWs in a text file and then 'hiding' them from snooping software in a PW protected RAR file for free (or am I missing something fundamental here)?
Jan 23 at 2:47am Copy Link

Doug Atkinson Robert - password managers offer several improvements over storing passwords in an encrypted text file such as 1) ability to categorize passwords (important when you have hundreds); 2) When you decrypt the text file, you have an unencrypted temporary file that does not go completely away when you close it, or delete it in a "normal" fashion; 3) Similarly for memory management when you copy and paste that password - most managers only keep the password in memory for a temporary period; 4) Programs like 1Password work on iOS, Android and let you synchronize your passwords across all your devices and access them from anywhere. Those are just off the top of my head.

Kioumars User If you look at the price 14.97$, it equals 3 months at 4.99$/month. Regardless, it should not be classified as 'free'. I am not sure who is at fault here but BitsDuJour should have checked the link before making it available to the mass. It is not a correct representation of BitsDuJour who are (to my recollections) very frank and true with their free giveaways (gently said!)
May this incorrect link be a lesson for future free giveaways. 1Password should be make aware of this mistake or erroneous advertisement (gently said!)

Dennis Johnson I just hope that this "offer" does not encourage other developers from doing something similar.

I'm really surprised that BDJ has allowed this to continue. I've been coming here for over a dozen years. And this is the most disturbing offer I've seen to date.

Robert Hare I appreciate Doug's comments, and whilst 'true' the only way someone without physical access to my desktop computer could ever hope to get to those phantom temporary text files stored in memory unencrypted for a limited amount of time is if I was infested (or infected if you prefer) with key stroke loggers and worse (which would mean I have much bigger problems than trying to recall or create passwords). I am leaning far more towards Kioumars' and Dennis' interpretations.
Personally, I continue to believe that this is clearly NOT a "100% discounted" or 'free' for a limited time utility or program. It's trial-ware at full price (a 0% discount), IMHO.

Neostar For those wondering, you can buy the standalone version of 1Password without the yearly subscription, just install it and then instead of clicking on trial, go up to file and select purchase and a large popup should appear and in small text it should say " Want a licence. We have those too" click it and you can buy it for $49.99 standalone no subscription

ymar I've been a happy user of 1Password for many years, purchasing many upgrades along the way. But I refuse to rent software. Unfortunately, Agile has gone that route AND priced themselves out of the market at the same time. This "free" offer is no deal at all.

So, sadly, I will moving on to some other alternative once 1Password 6 becomes unusable.

Arlene Manduca Neostar - That's an great observation "...you can buy it for $49.99 standalone no subscription." A good marketing idea would be to offer the $49.99 permanent license at a nice discount. It would encourage interested people to take the 3 month trial. That way it doesn't seem like a weak offering. It's an extended trial. ALSO the developer should offer a permanent license discount AGAIN after the 3 month trial is over. Happy customers can move up, if they are not up for $60.00 per year. This will address concerns that after 3 months your passwords are locked without a subscription. It would be great for the developer to explain in detail the advantage of the monthly subscription over a license so buyers understand the benefit.There's been a good deal if interest in this offering, no matter how it started. Take advantage of it, convert watchers into customers. Bitsum Process Lasso is an excellent product. They also sell by word of mouth. Their tremendous customer service and engagement is amazing. They're superfast at answering any questions, even in a free giveaway! They care! It's a technical product for sophisticated users (not an easy crowd to please) and they do a fabulous job. They give away Process Lasso here. <3 .

Dennis McKay After reading some of the comments about being able to buy it for a one time payment I decided to try it. Unfortunately when I click on Get the Deal it takes me to a page telling me it is redirecting me and then takes me to: http://www.anrdoezrs.net/...sid=100001 where I receive and error message that it can't find the IP address for http://www.anrdoezrs.net. I have tried five different browsers and get the same results in each one.

Richard User $60/year is for a family license - 5 persons (and you can add a sixth for another $1/month). An individual license is $36/year. These are payable up front. As it clearly states on the purchase page, $49 buys you a single-user license for 1Password v7 for Windows. Not clear whether you can install it on one PC or all your PCs. (May be available also for Mac OS, but I'm not shown that option on a Windows PC.)
What you don't get is use on your other devices: iOS, Android, ChromeOS (Chromebook), Linux. And there is no non-subscription Family plan.

Also, contrary to what is stated in BdJ Fine Print, with a subscription you get the updates/upgrades released during the subscription period and (I assume) product support.

The link 'Full License' in the Fine Print is bad:
http://agilewebsolutions....e/licenses just goes to the main 1password.com page. There's no obvious route from there to the license page. Search for 'license' or 'eula' on the support page produced nothing. After 30 minutes of hunting about I finally located the license at
https://1password.com/leg...f-service/
I had gone to the 'Contact Us' page to ask where to find it, and noticed at the bottom a link to Privacy Policy https://1password.com/legal/privacy/
I removed privacy/ and got the EULA.
BTw, there is a chattier page about privacy at https://1password.com/privacy/

A quick review of the license reveals nothing about the benefits of the single-user (non-subscription) license, except that "Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis". Nothing about updates for a fixed period or until next major version. Nothing about upgrades discounted for existing licenses. No indication of whether software can be installed on all PCs owned/used by licensee. But of course we are told that the service may be discontinued at any time. It gives me the impression that the software works only as long as they offer the service - that you can't manage your data locally in perpetuity (with a non-subscription license) even if Agile Bits drops support or goes out of business.

I ran the installer, expecting the usual drill: welcome screen, accept EULA, choose features if applicable, confirm where software will be installed (and perhaps override that) and be informed of how much space it will consume, options for creating shortcuts, then start installing. Instead I saw a few lines written to my cmd window, including one showing that some files were installed to C:\Users\(usrname)\AppData\Local\1Password, and ending with 'Installation successful! All I wanted was to view the EULA and then quit.

A window appears, evidently the running program, with options to 'Start my trial', 'sign in to 1Password.com' or 'Sync using folder' and a popup showing that software had been updated to 7.3.657. The page from which you can purchase the standalonw license is accessed by clicking '1Password' in the Menu/Title bar, then choosing 'License...'.

I found in the directories headed by ...\AppData\Local\1Password eight files consuming 19,071,940 bytes. ...\app\7 two .exe, one .dll, two .json; in ...\data one 500KB .sqlite file; in \logs\setup an 800 byte .log file documenting the setup. I see no files installed under \Program Files or \Program Files (x86), including the \Common dir under each. Haven't examined the registry.

Robert Hare With all due respect, this offer has been here going into its 5th or 6th day in a row now, and I see no one (including myself) having a change of heart as to whether or not it is limited 'full cost' trial-ware or a genuinely free offer (which it absolutely is not). Telling us we can alternately spend $50.00 for a single user license (again, presumably at the normal full price for same) that doesn't time out *still* doesn't make this a 'free' offer. My biggest beef is that it is being (repeatedly) presented as something it clearly is not.

To BDJ personnel: Is there any way to 'filter out' this and other future offers of this program once we have replied to this thread?

Cary Adams I've been using BitWarden. It's open source; free for all practical purposes; offers 2FA; and you can run it on your private cloud if you are so inclined. Overall it can do anything that 1Password is capable of.

Otherwise I use KeePass for local password control.

Why rent software that houses your passwords? I don't see anything good that can come from that. Otherwise 1Password does what it says.

Constantin Florea While it is true that there is already a 1 month free trial on the product website, by participating in this offer you get 3 free months of using the product.
