Creating a unique, secure password for all of your online accounts has never been more important. But few people get around to doing so.
Enter 1Password, an app that keeps all of your passwords secure—and helps you come up with new ones.
Still using passwords like abcd1234 or p@ssword1? The app makes it easy to upgrade them all. Tap the Generate New Password button to get an impossible-to-guess option (BM#w[bBszQrL4nz3) or a secure random string of words, helpfully hyphen-separated if you want (chant-joyous-sparta-buffet).
1Password integrates seamlessly with Safari and many other apps; when you come across a login screen, your username and passwords autofill. On iPad, open 1Password in Slide Over to drag and drop your credentials into apps or websites.
In addition to protecting passwords, the app keeps other personal data secure: credit cards, Social Security numbers, private notes, details from your driver’s license and passport.
1Password syncs among all of your devices, including computers, and the companion Apple Watch app puts all your crucial info within easy reach.
