1Password Adds Individual Plan for $2.99


Password manager 1Password has a new subscription plan for individual customers.

Following the success of its family and team platforms, developer AgileBits this week introduced a service aimed at single users. For $2.99 per month, tap into 1Password's baseline functions, as well as a handful of fresh features: built-in automatic sync across devices, data-loss protection, secure document storage, Web access, and easy restoration of deleted or changed items.

"Using our new service provides the simplest and most feature-packed way to use 1Password," AgileBits founder Dave Teare wrote in a blog post.

Individuals can sign up online before Sept. 21 for a free six-month trial; the $3 subscription cost kicks in after your 26 weeks are up.

For the 100 percent customer-funded company, giving away its only product is "scary," Teare said. "But we're more excited than scared as we really want everyone to try out our new service and see how awesome it is," he added.

A digital password locker where users can store critical information, 1Password is available on Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS, with options for consumers and businesses.

Earlier this year, AgileBits released its family plan, which costs $5 per month for a household of five, and allows users to store unlimited passcodes, credit cards, secure notes, and other data. It also includes 1GB of free document storage.

It also introduced a new concept called the Account Key. The randomly generated 128-bit key is used in combination with your Master Password to encrypt data using tamper-proof, authenticated 256-bit AES encryption.
