1password reader

1Password 4 will be making its way to Android on Tuesday, June 10. The app, built for both phones and tablets, has been in beta testing since November. 1Password 4 for Android is a completely new app, rather than an update to the existing 1Password Reader app.

As part of the release, AgileBits is making all features of 1Password 4 free for all users through August 1, 2014. At that time the app will go into a reader mode. Users can unlock the rest of the features with an in-app purchase. What the price will be has yet to be disclosed.

Are you looking forward to the release of 1Password 4 for Android? Let us know below in the comments.

Update - The release date that was originally announced, May 27, seems to have been an error. The post has been updated with the actual date, June 10.

I have been using the beta and it's great. Looks really nice and works at least as good as on iOS. I can sync my Apple stuff with my M8. If 1Password were not available on Android, I would have probably kept my iPhone..

Am I missing something? I read this article three times and I still don't know what 1Password 4 is. Some kind of password keeper?

Yeah, it's a fairly user-unfriendly alternative. It might be one of the older PC apps, but that is also something showing a bit too much.

Password Managers generally help people in maintaining their important credentials, like the passwords of Facebook or Gmail accts and other important stuffs.
I was having trouble in remembering the whole bunch of passwords, so one of ma frn suggested me to use a password manager, but yeah I wanted an ECONOMIC AND SAFE one, so I tried Enpass password manager and m sticking to it . Its good and very easy to use. :)

Before jumping to other platforms like android, Agile should seriously consider providing updated UI and full feature support to their already available app for windows platform. Their current windows client looks like it was designed for Windows 98 Second Edition and it doesnt even have all the functionality as its OSX counterpart.

Does the look of a password safe matter all that much?

As for the facts, 1Password for Chrome and Firefox is simlar to the Mac version. The plugin for IE is still using the dated interface though. It doesn't bother me as I use IE as little as possible.

As a Windows 1Password user I need an Android version. It would make no sense to spend a lot of money making the Windows version fancy enough for your liking at the cost of not having your passwords with you when you are on the go.

To many the attention to detail matters. From my perspective making the UX for existing products would be preferable over releasing a version on a new platform.

Use Lastpass and I'm pretty happy with it. Truly cross platform with apps on iOS, Android, Windows Phone you name it. Nice to see 1Password coming to Android but they have always been Apple centric in their development cycle. Don't want to be stuck with a password manager who is not truly cross platform like Lastpass.

When it comes to Pocket Friendly and safe app , I am sticking to Enpass Password Manager.
It's clean UI with great UX conveniences me to pay $4.99 for lifetime...Moreover I am using its PC ver for free and getting all the updates for free...What else can I ask for?

I've been using Safe in Cloud for over a year. It works great with an Android app and desktop integration through Chrome. I also like that it stores the database file on my cloud storage instead of their servers. It's also free so I cannot imagine paying for a different app that is likely not more functional.

Well, the app is free to use for computer operating systems and so are the various browser extensions. The actual Android app is $4.99, I bought it less than a month back.

To be fair, 1Password does not store your keychain on their servers. They store it wherever you want, and with their beta 1Password 4 app for Android, that includes any cloud storage provider with an app worth some salt. Google Drive and Dropbox are fully functional. It could also just be locally, be it on your phone or computer.

I am using Enpass Password Manager since I read about it on android central. I chose this app because I want an app doesn't store my information on their server. Even I, may some others also don't trust clouds and don't want to save data on them. Enpass does the same and it saves all the data on my device not on its servers.

it is on topic and sometimes they are useful. I know that a few suggestions on a similar post have lead to the discovery of some pretty cool apps. Now when we talk about which carrier is better, then it is irrelevant.

I often view comments for the sole purpose of learning about alternatives to the whatever the article is about. It's a good way to mitigate the PR aspect of so many of these reviews and news releases.

Yeah, that's all fixed on the beta. The posted screenshot is the old, ugly, terrible "reader" that's fully revamped with a full version of 1Password.

I've been using it for a few months and it's beautiful. It may keep me from moving to LastPass. The 1Password beta and eventual RTM version adheres to all Google KitKat design factors and works incredibly well. Stay tuned - you guys will love it!

How secure are apps and services like last pass etc

LastPass stores your password hash though don't they? Or they can recover your keychain if you forget your password? I've never used it so I don't know.

But a service or app that does not store your hash or have a recovery method is more secure than one that does.

1Password doesn't store your passwords centrally. You control the password file which is AES encrypted. Of course, there could always be a backdoor in the program secretly sending your file to an Internet location. That's always a possibility with closed-source security software, though extremely unlikely.

I've been using mSecure for Android and MacOS and mSecure uses 256 Bit Blowfish. I can't findout what 1Password uses. I also used eWallet (256 Bit AES) for a while, but switched because I could not sync between Mac and Android (mSecure does this).

So for Android, this is a "me too" product.
I'll stick to mSecure.
Meh....

They use AES-128, which, while not AES-256, is still cryptographically secure as far as I know. I haven't read any 'NSA cracks 128 for lunch' posts on Reddit or Android Central lately.

Use what works best for you :) just wanted to inform.
