Like other password controllers, 1Password contains software that works everywhere, including MacOS, iOS, Android, Windows, and Chrome OS. There is also a command line tool that can work anywhere, and the company has recently launched a client for Linux in beta. There are also plugins for your favorite browser, which make it easy to create and modify new passwords on the fly.
1Password recently announced its new software, 1Password 8, and I have had various experiences. On the one hand, it eventually works with Windows laptops running on ARM systems. But on MacOS Monterey, I have had a problem with autofill not working, short keyboard shortcuts to stop until I restart the browser, among other problems. The problem so far is not enough to change our decision, but it is something I am looking forward to. The company has also reduced its free trial period from 30 days to 14 days.
If you travel frequently across country borders you appreciate my favorite 1Password: Travel Trips. This mode allows you to delete any sensitive data on your devices before the trip and then restore and click after you cross the border. This prevents anyone, even law enforcement officials from crossing the border into your private area.
In addition to being a password manager, 1Password ends act as a validation program like Google Authenticator, with added security, creates the most secure passwords it uses, meaning no one can change your password without a key. (Unfortunately, if you lose this key, no one, not even 1Password, can change your password.)
1Password also provides solid integration with other mobile applications. Instead of simply copying and pasting passwords from a password manager to other applications (which puts your passwords on the clipboard temporarily), 1Password is integrated with most applications and can fill automatically. This is especially noticeable on iOS, when communication between apps is restricted.
The Best Free Way
Bitwarden is safe, open source, and free of charge. The software is polished and easy to use, which makes it an excellent choice for anyone who doesn’t need more 1Password.
