62 alpha releases.
Over 20,000 beta testers.
My Mac stopped counting lines of revamped code.
Everything. Yes, really. From an entirely new interface to the return of Wi-Fi Sync for those who don’t want their data in the cloud, 1Password 4 for Mac has over 90 new features that allow “security” and “convenience” to coexist in the same sentence without tearing a rift in the space-time continuum. Check out the highlights:
- Completely redesigned interface – crafted by Dan V Peterson with Mavericks and simplicity in mind
- Multiple and Shared Vaults – create separate vaults to share with business or family members that each get their own sync preferences and locations (take 1Password > New Demo Vault for a quick spin!)
- 1Password mini – a full-featured menubar utility with vault search, item details, vault switching, window anchor options, and more
- Shared Items – if sharing an entire vault is overkill, you can share individual items (Logins, Secure Notes, memberships) with another person via email or obfuscated iMessage, just like iOS! If your recipient makes changes and shares the item back to you, 1Password will update your existing item
- 256-bit Authenticated Encryption, PBKDF2 with HMAC-SHA512, and other major security enhancement – 1Password not only keeps your data private, but also tamper-proof. This forestalls many attacks that haven’t even been dreamt of yet
- Wi-Fi Sync is back – many of our customers asked for a way to sync with 1Password 4 for iPhone and iPad but keep their data out of The Cloud, and we delivered
- iCloud sync – naturally
- Favorites – also just like iOS, quick access to your most important and frequently used items
- Third-party App Integration – You can choose to enable support for Alfred, LaunchBar, and Quicksilver, allowing you to quickly search and open Logins from the Mac’s great productivity utilities
Upgrades and launch sale
So, what does this all cost for existing and and soon-to-be customers? You already read the great news, so here’s some more great news (ProTip: there is no bad news):

I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I did verify all that with the folks upstairs. It’s legit!
