The Daily App: 1Password For Android, iOS, OS X, Windows9:00 AM EST Thu. Oct. 18, 2012
For those who use the same password for every online registration simply because remembering multiple passwords is somewhat impossible, today’s Daily App is for you. 1Password for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows is a password manager that brings both security and convenience to all devices, both mobile and stationary.
From Canadian developer AgileBits, 1Password saves Web usernames and passwords as well as a variety of other information, including license, social security, credit card and software serial numbers directly within the app.
1Password uses its own built-in browser to store login information for each site visited, and once entered, credentials will always be remembered. Data is locked behind a customizable four-digit unlock code and a master password that must be entered each time the browser is launched. It also supports browser extensions for Safari, Camino, Firefox, OmniWeb, DEVONagent, NetNewsWire, Netscape Navigator and Flock. All browser extensions share the data stored within the app.
Dropbox integration allows 1Password to sync all mobile and computer devices; that way, new information can be added from a mobile device back to a computer and vice versa. It also has an encrypted data backup, which uses its built in backup and restore feature to save data on the devices. 1Password also makes it easy to copy and paste passwords or credit card numbers into other applications and Web forms. It also uses freeform secure notes that can be used to jot down and store any data that needs to be kept private.
Pricing for 1Password starts at $14.99 for iOS and $49.99 for the Mac and Windows version; the Android app is free, although it does not offer as many features.
