So far I'm perfectly happy with the stand-alone apps syncing via iCloud, but I can imagine the new abo structure to be a viable proposition. Maybe I'll sign up somewhere in the future when a new killer feature is added.
Thanks for keeping an open mind, Paul! 🙏
We're trying our best to keep the licensed and hosted versions as similar as possible, so many of the new killer features we will add will be in both 😀
You're right though, some features will indeed depend upon the hosted service as some of our planned features are not possible in a standalone app.
I'll definitely consider this option. I've been using 1Password on all my iDevices now for about 10 months now, having moved over from LastPass, and have been very happy with both the apps and AgileBits's service. I currently use iCloud for syncing, and occasionally have to wait for one device to update its copy before I can login to a site or app. Having a more robust sync would be great!
Also, I've put off adding 1Password to the Windows installation I keep around, mainly on cost grounds vs how much I'd make use of it. The subscription pricing means I'd pay less and have all my devices covered. Yes, I'd be paying every year, but I've no problem with that if what I'm getting is rock solid and backed by good customer support. (Coincidentally, I ended my Adobe Creative Cloud subscription a few months ago, mainly because I was fed up with their service & support.)
Thank you for your support, Alan! We wouldn't be here without awesome customers like you ❤️
I am with you and believe customer support is a critical part of any business. We are doing our best to keep these high expectations a reality and your support is key in allowing us to do so. Thank you.
I have been with AgileBits 1 password from the early days. They offered a Family license and I bought it. I have had free upgrades for years. Agilebits offers a solid product and top notch support. Updates and support have been free too. I can see how they need to move to subscription model to make money. Rest assured the product and support will continue to be the absolute best! I feel secure on my computers and iphone with 1password. Encrypted and backed up no bits of paper or a password file or log.
Thank you so much for your trust and support! We really wouldn't be here without fantastic customers like you – thank you for making it possible to work on what we love. ❤️
Where can I find detailed instructions on how to use the new two-factor security measure called Account Key?
The Account Key is created for you automatically when you create a new 1Password account. Along with your Master Password it is used to encrypt your data so it's important that you keep it handy incase you ever lose your authorized devices.
I'm assuming you are already using 1Password so I'm going to share this article with you:
There you will find how to setup a new 1Password account, add the account to your Mac, and migrate your data over. The video illustrates 1Password Families but the concepts are equally valid for individual accounts.
I hope that helps.
I am a single user of the service. What is the difference between the family and teams plans?
Thank you for asking this question. I'm sorry I made you wait so long for an answer :)
Both Teams and Families allow you to securely share data with others and greatly simplifies managing the people in your "team", be it business colleagues or family members. Families is for personal use and gives you everything you need to protect your entire family. It includes 5 people in the monthly $5 subscription (additional family members can be added for only $1). Teams is geared towards businesses and offers you the control and customization you need to use it efficiently in your organization.
Both Families and Teams include my favorite feature – Account Recovery. This allows you as the account organizer to restore access to team members who might forget their Master Password or lose their Account Key.
If you would like to learn more about 1Password (https://1password.com/sign-up/), 1Password Families (https://1password.com/sign-up/) and 1Password Teams (https://1password.com/teams/) take a look at our web site and don’t hesitate to ask more questions if your situation doesn’t clearly point you to one over another.
Have a good weekend!
Thanks for the clarification. One last question, Is Account Recovery available for stand aline subscribers?
Good question Yashodhan.
The Account Recovery feature can only be used by members of 1Password Families or Teams because one member must be authorized to assist another. With 1Password accounts for individuals and our standalone app there is only the one user.
I hope that makes sense. Please let me know if there's anything else I can help with :)
