1Password for Windows now lets you manage accounts from your browser
AgileBits isn’t done sprucing up 1Password just because it released a much-needed Android upgrade; it’s also showing some love to the Windows version of its secure account manager. The just-launched 1Password 4 for Windows catches up on features in a big way, including the browser extension previously seen only on the Mac. You’re now just a shortcut away from fetching credentials or generating an extra-complex password. The revamp also brings WiFi syncing, multiple vaults and a service that warns you when hackers compromise a site.
The reworked software is free if you bought 1Password for Windows in 2013 or later. However, be prepared to pay up if you’re starting relatively fresh: a brand new license is $50 ($70 in a five-pack), while those who don’t qualify for a free update will have to shell out $25. That’s steep if you’re used to paying no more than a few bucks for mobile software. However, it might be worth the expense if you’re tired of memorizing obscure login details.
