The company behind the 1Password app, AgileBits, announced today a new subscription plan for individual users for $2.99 per month.
The individual option will provide the same services the team and family options do, and it is going synchronize the copies of 1Password on all devices the person uses it.
1Password is a password manager that gives its users a place to keep various passwords, software licenses, and other similar access keys in a virtual vault locked with a PBKDF2-guarded master password.
The app can store the information locally, and it doesn’t synchronize with any remote servers. Also, if the user wants to sync it, he or she has to use a local Wi-Fi set up (Only for the macOs and iOS), Dropbox and Apple’s iCloud.
1Password individual accounts will cost $36 annually
1Password integrates with all modern browsers including Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, and the extension gives the user the option to login automatically on any website. 1Password can remember a site and allow the user to log in automatically. Also, it can generate random passwords.
AgileBits is trying to lure solo users. The new individual plan works as a separate product entirely independent from the other services.
Customers can pay $36 annually to receive editions for macOS, iOS, Android, and the beta version for Windows. Like other subscription software, the users will receive updates for the app and free upgrades as long as they pay regularly. However, customers can cancel the subscription anytime they want.
