When there's a dedicated "Passwords" app, I'll drop 1P. I hate being a loyal, long-using customer since the MacHeist days only to see this thing become non-native, enterprise focused. I don't begrudge them making money, but Agile is not the company I started supporting.

Between 1Password, Bitwarden, Minimalist, and iCloud Keychain, I've found Minimalist to be my favorite. But that's in part to a perpetual license, Bitwarden and iCK beat that by being free. At least until they change their minds..

I'm still using the old 1Password (with iCloud sync) that came with a lifetime license. It still works perfectly fine on macOS Monterey and across my all Apple devices so I haven't seen a good reason to update.

I would be more than happy to pay a one-off price for 1Password again to have another new lifetime license for it, but I honestly cannot be bothered to subscribe to another monthly/yearly service.

If the creators of 1Password were smart, they should offer lifetime licenses again alongside subscriptions. It's only a matter of time when Apple creates their own Password app and then even I will jump to using it exclusively.

Been a 1Password person for a very long time. Even had a lifetime license and no clue what happened to it. Been a sub for a few years. Not liking all these half off plans. What about your long time, loyal customers?

iOS is starting to really dip into 1Passwords abilities. Until there's a dedicated App that works across platforms/browsers, I will hold onto 1Password.

To be honest, I still don't understand how Ive been using 1password for free for a bunch of years. I just never subscribed but am still able to store my vault on icloud and use apps on both ios and mac os somehow. Waiting for those icloud keychain enhancements we keep hearing about to move everything over.

Minimalist looks nice! If I didn't want a cross-platform solution that works well with Windows, Mac OS, and iOS, I'd very likely use it.

I have used 1password since the 2nd age of man. I will not pay every year for a newer, better, faster, etc version of it when my perp version works fine in all my device including windows. I like the old version (6) and it uses icloud and instead of some unknown version of a server in canada or wherever. newer client sucks also. It also makes me nervous that they were bought out and god only knows what will happen after that. I still use the oldeest versions on g4/g5 and works fine.

They say "Half Off" but here is the fine print - for the 1st Year. LOL. That's just so they can lock you into an annual subscription debt. Plus, ANYTHING that you put in the cloud can be stolen. Does not matter what it is. It can be stolen. And many companies are idiots and put their intellectual property in the cloud! ROFL. I guess they just can't wait to go out of business.

new crappy mac client
Nail on the head for me. I paid for 1P perpetual and subbed for a while and they lost me because the price for some crap electron app just didn't make sense. The changes helped them and their dev more than the users, and the newer features aren't important to me anyway. I have another 8mos left on my subscription since it's easiest for sharing passwords with my dad, but I've moved on otherwise.

I've also moved to Minimalist, which imported ~500 items flawlessly. I wasn't thrilled about 1Password moving to subscription-only model and Electron base, but the elimination of iCloud/local vaults was unacceptable and removing macOS autofill support—that it already had!—was just a giant middle finger from AgileBits. MacRumors should think carefully about this affiliate relationship.

Wait. Are you serious? Electron is a security nightmare. What have you moved on to? Bitwarden worked pretty well for me. What would you suggest? Why in the honest crap would they move to that steaming pile of code? Idiots.

Edit: Bitwarden is also Electron. Good grief.

Edit again: All these password managers appear to be Electron. Are there any non-Electric password managers?

Triple Edit: Dashlane is native now and built on Catalyst. This might be it.

I bought a perpetual license, and I expect it to continue to work for a while.

I paid a lot of money for it, and I will not change to a rental model. So it looks like I'm going to ride this out. Seems like I'll be switching to the internal iCloud password management. Stuff paying for something every month.
