It allows you to create and store strong passwords across all of your most important online accounts, and alert you when your passwords are compromised.

The 1Password app informs you when sites that you're storing information for support two-factor authentication, helping you improve and strengthen your login information. If you're on a Touch ID or Face ID-supported Apple device, you can also open the 1Password app even quicker with Apple's biometric authentication systems.

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.

What changes? I've used 1Password for a little while but haven't been following their news much.
Let's get started here.

[LIST=1]
* 1Password 8 is all subscription or nothing at all. They dropped all pricing for standalone versions, to the point where you can no longer purchase a license for it. There is no upgrade path for anything standalone prior to 1Password 7. If you are on anything older, your next upgrade is to 8 and a subscription, or you're stuck where you're at.


* Electron for 1Password 8. Some may be okay with it, some are upset at how bloated it is going to be, but to each their own there.


* All vaults are not only stored in the cloud, but must be stored on 1Password's servers ONLY. You no longer have a choice as to where you can store your vaults. Like with all Cloud services, this puts your legal rights into a bind. If the authorities investigate you for any reason, you would not be safe in the authorities requiring a warrant to seize your vaults in a cloud service: encrypted, decrypted, locked, unlocked, or otherwise. The reason for this is that you are not in physical ownership of your data; the Cloud service or SaaS provider is, and they would be considered 3rd party to any investigation of you. All that the authorities would need is to ask them to turn it over or get a subpoena to have them hand it over, and they will have no choice.

Also, what happens to your data when you cancel your subscription? It is still in the possession of AgileBits/1Password, so can you trust that they will remove your data?


* In a year's time (call it 18 month's time) for a normal individual purchase, you would have paid as much for that subscription than you would for a lifetime/permanent license. In fact, someone stated in another thread that they spent $4/month since 2016 for a 1Password subscription. So compare that to when the last version of 1Password 6 was available at its sale price at $40 for a lifetime license.

For a subscription: $4 x 12 months = 48/year. 48/year * 5 years = $240, just from 2016 to today.
For that lifetime license: $40. And again, that is just from 2016 to today.

You'll be paying more monthly for the cost of the same application as I have over time, and seeing that 1Password is never reverting away from a monthly subscription SaaS, you're stuck.


* When Apple drops Rosetta 2 support, all Intel binaries will refuse to run on a Silicon Mac. So you're on borrowed time if you're using a Silicon Mac, and also on borrowed time for when Intel Mac users are stuck on the last version of MacOS with Intel support.

So you're overpaying over the course of a year, lose control over your data, stuck with what you can do, and see that their business practices are moving away from the individual, which is what their business was geared towards when they started the company. So a lot of changes, and not all of them good.

There's an entire 50 page thread on this where everyone goes into detail on this, plus what other options there are that people are migrating to, away from 1Password.

I ditched them when they went subscription. As I have with every other software. There are always alternatives at least for now.
