'1Password for Teams' Introduces Secure Password Sharing for Teams at Work

AgileBits recently announced that its long-in-beta product "1Password for Teams" has officially launched, bringing an enterprise-focused version of the company's popular password management app to iOS, Mac, and Android. 1Password for Teams will let users in a designated team share secure passwords, documents, and other data through AgileBits' heavily encrypted infrastructure. Announced first in November, and now just coming out of a seven month-long beta test period, the new team sharing service gives control over a group of users to one administrator, who can then ensure that their entire team remains safe from phishing scams and hacks. With end-to-end encryption, 1Password for Teams ensures that team members don't have to risk a security breach by emailing or texting passwords between one another. A team's administrator has access to 1Password for Teams' robust Admin Console, from which they can create password vaults and assign member access, restore a master password if a team member forgets their login information, and grant temporary access to guests. AgileBits also promises that 1Password for Teams is backed by features that let members find "weak and reused passwords" so they can be changed proactively, a security alert system called Watchtower, a master password creator, and other various anti-phishing software. Through the service's security-minded automatic wireless syncing, users can share financial records -- like an office credit card or joint bank account -- and even various word and text documents. Similar to its 1Password for Families plan,

'1Password for Families' Gives Up to 5 Users 1Password Access for $5 Per Month

In November, AgileBits announced 1Password for Teams, giving 1Password users a way to share passwords with friends, family, and coworkers. As of today, 1Password for Teams is expanding to 1Password for Families, introducing a special pricing plan designed to give all members of a family access to secure password options at an affordable price. For $5 per month, a family of up to five people can have full access to the 1Password software, allowing them to keep individual secure vaults to store their private passwords and share household passwords using a family vault. 1Password for Families is available on all platforms, including Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.It's never been easier to share 1Password with your whole family. There's no sync service to set up, vaults appear automatically, and there's an Admin Console where you can invite people and manage sharing with your family. Every family member gets their own copy of 1Password, and their own personal space to store private information. With this, you can give them the tools they need to stay safe without taking away their independence.Early adopters who subscribe to 1Password for Families before March 21 will receive a $10 credit equivalent to two months of free access, double the amount of secure storage for documents (2GB), and the ability to invite two extra family members for a total of 7 users per family account. Customers interested in signing up for a 1Password for Families subscription plan can do so on the 1Password website.

'1Password 6' for Mac Brings Revamped Password Generator, iCloud Sync for Non Mac App Store Version

AgileBits today announced a new Mac version of 1Password, its popular cross-platform password management app. 1Password version 6.0 for Mac includes several new features like an All Vaults view, a new password generator, and iCloud sync for all versions of the Mac app. 1Password's new "All Vaults" view allows users to see all of their passwords and password vaults at a glance, both in the main 1Password app and the menu bar view. Many people use vaults to organize and share their passwords for different purposes, so this will be a handy feature for accessing the passwords from multiple vaults without needing to switch back and forth. All Vaults also incorporates information from the Teams Beta, and there's a new Teams-only mode. Along with a new vault view, the new 1Password update introduces a revamped Strong Password Generator that brings it inline with the 1Password for iOS app. Included is a new wordlist password generator with a "Words" option to create a password that is composed of random words. Wordlist passwords are useful because they're much easier to remember than a random assortment of characters, but are no less secure. For people who use the non-Mac App Store version of 1Password, there's an important new feature - iCloud syncing. Apple previously did not allow non-Mac App Store apps to sync with iCloud, but changes to CloudKit have now allowed AgileBits to implement iCloud syncing for the version of 1Password purchased directly from the AgileBits Store. Being able to sync a non-Mac App Store app with iCloud is an achievement that took quite

1Password Update Brings the Password-Managing App to Apple Watch [Updated]

AgileBits this morning announced that an incoming update to its popular password-managing app 1Password will include an Apple Watch version of the service, providing users an even easier way to manage and easily remember their most important passwords. Like most upcoming Apple Watch apps, 1Password's wrist-worn counterpart will act as a companion to the traditional full-fledged iPhone app. AgileBits, the app's creator, hopes that the location of the Watch on a user's wrist, versus reaching for an iPhone, provides more ease-of-use in accessing the app for an oft-forgotten password. You don’t need to be an intrepid inspector (or a precocious crime-solver in pigtails) to appreciate the awesomeness of having 1Password on your wrist. 1Password for Apple Watch helps you find the little pieces of secret info you need every day, quickly and easily. If you need the code to open your garage door, one of your one-time passwords, or to look up your credit card number while phoning in an order for pizza, 1Password is right there for you. In addition to preparing for an Apple Watch app, the 1Password 5.4 update offers fans of the service a few new features, including a "mark all as read" button in the Message Center, a toggle to remove the unread badge from the settings tabs, and other basic bug fixes. 1Password can be downloaded on the App Store for free. [Direct Link] Update: MacRumors has discovered that for users to experience password managing on Apple Watch, they will have to upgrade to the $9.99 1Password Pro option within the free-to-download base app first.
