Do a little dance, make a Master Password

When you start using 1Password, creating a strong Master Password is the first and most important thing you’ll do. We all know that the Master Password is the sentry that protects your data, so choosing a super-secure password is the key to starting your journey towards better security. After all, this will be the ‘one password’ that you have to remember from now on, so you want to make it a good one! Our Chief Defender Against the Dark Arts has written an awesome blog post to help you through this important step, but there’s a lot of information in there and it can be a little bit overwhelming.

One of our goals with 1Password is to make security convenient. We’ve thought long and hard about how to make the process of choosing this important password simpler and more friendly for our new users.

Could we make the password creation process fun, and maybe even danceable? Why not?

We called on our friend, Jonathan Mann, to help us teach everyone how to create a strong Master Password. It turns out, his method involves a lot less reading.

We’ve been humming this song for weeks now, and I’m so glad we can finally share it with you! I’m pretty sure my favourite scene is the 35 bats, but I’d love to know which one makes you smile the most.
