Today is a very exciting day in the world of passwords! We have not one, not two, but three(!) incredible things to announce:
- An awesome new state-of-the-art hosted service to protect you and your data
- The most affordable way to purchase 1Password on all your devices
- A launch special that’s so amazing it’s kinda scary
Read on to see why this is the best time to try 1Password and start protecting yourself online. 🎉
A new, revolutionary hosted service
Earlier this year, we released two amazing new services: 1Password Families and 1Password Teams. Both rely on our new hosted platform to bring awesome new features that weren’t possible when 1Password was just a standalone app.
The response has been amazing and many of you asked for a special plan so you could also enjoy these benefits. We now have the perfect answer: our new service made for individuals!
Our new individual hosted service comes with everything you expect from 1Password, along with these new features:
- Built-in automatic sync across all devices
- Data loss protection
- Web access to your data on 1Password.com
- Item History for restoring deleted or changed items
- Secure Document storage
- Brand new multi-factor security model
Using our new service provides the simplest and most feature-packed way to use 1Password. And with our new purchase option, it’s easier than ever to get started.
Our new super-affordable plan
To get the benefits of our new hosted service, you simply need to subscribe to our new plan on 1Password.com.
In addition to all the new features, the biggest benefit of a 1Password subscription is that you get all the 1Password apps for every platform, along with Pro Features, free updates, and free upgrades to every new version of 1Password.
One of the things people love most about our Families and Teams plans is not needing to worry about licenses or paid upgrades. And with our new plan for individuals, everyone can get in on the fun.
At just $2.99 a month, it’s the simplest and most affordable way to start using 1Password. See our pricing page for full details.
Oh, and our subscription service will never lock you in! You can cancel at any time and if your subscription ever lapses, you will still be able to view and export all your data.
An amazing (and scary!) launch special
It’s no fun having a launch without having a special launch special so we went looking for one and we found a doozy!
Sign up today and receive your first 6 months free! No ifs, ands, or buts (or ads!). There’s no fine print and no strings attached. You don’t even need to add your credit card to get this amazing deal!
To get in on this incredible deal, all you need to do is sign up for an individual 1Password account before September 21st, 2016.
Given how excited we are, you might be wondering why this is a little bit scary for us as well. The thing is, we’re a 100% customer-funded company and have refused to accept any venture capital money. As such it’s scary to give away our one and only product.
But we’re more excited than scared as we really want everyone to try out our new service and see how awesome it is. So sign up now, before Fall falls 😉
Security and Privacy
We built 1Password from the start on a foundation of Security and Privacy, and our new 1Password accounts have once again taken things to the next level.
First and foremost, our end-to-end encryption security model ensures all your information is encrypted before it ever leaves your device. The encryption keys are only accessible to you so we are never able to decrypt any of your data.
Your Master Password (which only you know) is a key player in this encryption, but 1Password accounts also come with a new concept called the Account Key to make our encryption even stronger.
The Account Key is a randomly generated 128-bit key that is used in combination with your Master Password to encrypt your data using tamper-proof, authenticated 256 bit AES encryption.
Only you have your Account Key and like your Master Password it never leaves your devices. Along with your Master Password this ensures that no one but you will be able to access your 1Password data.
See our security page for details and all the things we did beyond just enabling TLS/SSL (we did that, too, by the way 😉).
Great for new and long-time users alike
If you know anyone who’s not practicing safe passwords, now is a great time to introduce them to 1Password!
Simply link your friends to the signup page and gently remind them how important it is to use strong, unique passwords for every site:
If you are a long-time user but don’t own 1Password for all your devices, haven’t upgraded to the newest version, or if you want to take advantage of the new features in our hosted service, now’s the perfect time to sign up.
After signing up you’ll be able to easily migrate your existing data over to your new 1Password account. We have a great guide along with a video that walks you through the process.
This launch special is too good to leave running for long so I needed to pick a cutoff date. Be sure to sign up before September 21st to get this awesome deal!
I hope you and your friends love our new 1Password hosted service as much as we loved making it for you. 😘
