I am totally naive about password managers. I am not sure why anyone would have a third party password manager, especially when using iOS 12. Can you guys please explain why I would want to subscribe to 1Password when using iOS 12? Thanks.
I even store my vehicle info in it such as VIN, plate info, and other info that might be needed.Very simple. Because not near everyone uses a Mac. Keychain only works on Mac or iOS.
How exactly does one sync passwords between PC and iOS then? Keep 2 separate sets of passwords in different apps/keychain and manually update the other when things change?
And keychain only stores passwords. Third party password managers can store secure notes, credit card numbers, PINs, etc. Lots of types of information encrypted with your passwords.
I have been a very happy 1Password user for years, but I am done with any future upgrades. Currently I am using 1Password 6 but I have ZERO interest in upgrading to version 7 and paying a monthly fee to store what amounts to a few kilobytes of data on their servers when my current version will store the data and sync on Dropbox (free account). I don't know how long version 6 will continue to work but I will use it until I can't. There is a "stand alone" version 7 that you can buy but it's ridiculously high price compared to what I paid for current version. Also, they do not appear to offer and "upgrade" price for existing version 6 license holders. Sorry, I'm done. I'm on High Sierra now and hope it will still work on Mojave. If not, then I'll just keep my stuff on a spread sheet or find other PW manager to use. With KeyChain I don't need the "autofill" function as keychain does that very nicely. It would be great if Apple would upgrade KeyChain to offer more functionality similar to 1Pass so that 3rd party password managers would not be necessary. /vent.
I understand your comments and the issues you have with a subscription service, but I will challenge you on the cost of a standalone license. I believe it costs $65. That is far from expensive for the type of product 1Password is, and the level of support and updating it gets.
I work and I’m fixed income too.... heck, my parents are retired and get more raises the I do. I never got that statement. At all.Well, I'm on a fixed income (retired) and really don't feel like forking out $65 on top of the $49 already paid for v6. Looking for a less expensive option, even if it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of 1Pass.
