    When I went to download 1password, I noticed two apps to download. Which one is the best version and what's the difference between the two? Everyone I've talked to and everything I've read talks highly of 1password, so I thought I'd finally give it a try. I'm still a bit hesitant of the safety of it.

    Thanks

    There'so only one version of 1Password in the US App Store and it's version 5.1.1. That's a universal app that runs on iPhone and iPad. There used to be a separate iPad one that might be coming up in your search for some reason maybe.

    Thanks! I can't find many negative reviews about it. So 1password is secure? I'm just hesitant putting all my passwords within a program that all someone has to do is hack one password. If they hack that, they have everything.

    Hi there, we wrote an article that is sort of related to your question here:

    https://blog.agilebits.com/2014/07/16/1password-is-a-very-safe-basket/

    You may want to read that as it should answer your question pretty well. Please let me know if you have any other questions after reading it though!

    It's as secure as your password. Your master password should be long and never used anywhere else. I use Dropbox sync and my Dropbox password is also very long and different. Agilebits blog on picking a secure password is very good.

    I feel better about syncing to iCloud or Dropbox than to a vendor's store as the vendor's store is a tempting target.

    1password install question

    Long time reader, first post.

    I haven't synced my 1password data due to fear of my backup getting clipped. I was considering backing it up in iTunes from my phone and then loading it into my iPad.

    Is it pretty safe to do it via iCloud?

    Yep. I prefer Dropbox sync as it works more reliability in my experience. If you're really worried about security, you could just sync via wifi sync.

    I agree with Baby Panda in the post above that Dropbox sync is preferable to iCloud sync, at least for now. As good as Apple's "ecosystem" is, there are still some trouble points and iCloud is one of them.

    Here is a link written by a respected blogger that explains more:

    Most of Mr. Spark's comments relate specifically to the iCould Drive portion of iCloud, but Dropbox works so well that there is no reason to use anything else.
