1Password uses end-to-end encryption to secure files, which means that they are encrypted and decrypted on your device, so no one—not even 1Password—can access them without your master password.
There are times when you may need to copy and paste a password into an online field, which can leave that password exposed on your device’s clipboard. 1Password detects passwords on your clipboard and clears them automatically.
1Password’s software architecture is fully transparent, allowing for anyone to see how it works, which means that 1Password is secure enough in its design that it doesn’t feel the need to be secretive.
It’s easy to be fooled by fake sites posing as real ones, and hackers count on you not knowing the difference so they can steal your password and other information. 1Password checks a site’s authenticity and will only fill in a password on the site where the password was created.
When you put 1Password in Travel Mode, it removes all your sensitive data from your devices, letting you travel securely.
We also like that 1Password has an active and comprehensive support forum frequented by its own programmers. If you have any questions about your software or problems with it, you’ll be able to easily and quickly find the help you need in the forum.
If you’re switching to 1Password from another password manager, you’ll want to import your passwords, but it may be difficult. 1Password can only import from Google Chrome, Dashlane, LastPass, and RoboForm.
Unlike Dashlane and LastPass, 1Password does not have an automatic password changing feature. Company representatives say the programming required would be cumbersome for their team and that changes in a website could affect the programming of this feature, leaving you locked out of your account.
