1Password by AgileBits Inc. is an app designed to remember all of your passwords and to protect them all in one place. It also helps you generate passwords as needed. The app is marked down 50 percent for a limited time, so get it fast.
If you’ve ever forgotten a password, or had an account hacked because your password was weak, then you need this app. 1Password will not only help generate strong, unique passwords for any site you need, it will also remember all of your passwords and keep them safe behind a master password.
The app uses military-grade 256-bit AES encryption so you can rest assured your data will be safe. If your device is stolen or lost, the Auto-Lock feature keeps your information secure.
The app has a built-in browser, so you can surf and log in to websites directly from the app. You won’t have to cut and paste your username and password into your default browser; the app does it all for you. It will even fill in credit card information for you, input your address information, and more.
You can sync your data across all your devices.
1Password was updated to Version 4.2.1 on May 18, 2013. The update made a minor bug fix as well as new features. You must be 17 years old or older to download 1Password.
The current version has 229 customer ratings with an average of four out of five stars. Feedback comments are mixed, saying it's a great app but some users complaining about having to pay for an update.
1Password is probably one of the best password apps available for iOS. I’ve tried a few and they just don’t offer the same services. Now that it’s reduced in price you should definitely check it out. I don’t know what those users are talking about with having to pay for the app again since I just downloaded it for the first time but if that’s the case then that’s a bit ridiculous.
