Passwords are annoying, you have to set a hard to guess one but quite often that will mean you have multiple passwords for a variety of services that you constantly forget. This is where password managers come in, storing all of your passwords in one place and allowing you to access them with just one password.
One of the more popular password managers is the one from Agile Bits called 1Password.
Today Agile Bits announced an updated version of 1Password that brings in a new monthly subscription service, allowing users to access the service from $3 a month.
This now means that you need a subscription to use the 1Password service, however, Agile Bits are offering new signups access to the service for free for the first 6 months, after that, they will charge users the standard fee.
Agile Bits explained more about it with the following:
Earlier this year, we released two amazing new services: 1Password Families and 1Password Teams. Both rely on our new hosted platform to bring awesome new features that weren’t possible when 1Password was just a standalone app.
The response has been amazing and many of you asked for a special plan so you could also enjoy these benefits. We now have the perfect answer: our new service made for individuals! Our new individual hosted service comes with everything you expect from 1Password, along with these new features:
– Built-in automatic sync across all devices
– Data loss protection
– Web access to your data on 1Password.com
– Item History for restoring deleted or changed items
– Secure Document storage
– Brand new multi-factor security model
– Using our new service provides the simplest and most feature-packed way to use 1Password. And with our new purchase option, it’s easier than ever to get started.
In addition to all the new features, the biggest benefit of a 1Password subscription is that you get all the 1Password apps for every platform, along with Pro Features, free updates, and free upgrades to every new version of 1Password. One of the things people love most about our Families and Teams plans is not needing to worry about licenses or paid upgrades. And with our new plan for individuals, everyone can get in on the fun.
At just $2.99 a month, it’s the simplest and most affordable way to start using 1Password. See our pricing page for full details. Oh, and our subscription service will never lock you in! You can cancel at any time and if your subscription ever lapses, you will still be able to view and export all your data.
