1Password is not free, it is $35.88 a year.

This password keeper is an option if I decide to leave Lastpass.  The setup seems overly complicated because it seems to be aimed at the first-time password keeper user.

Like all password keepers, there is a master password setup. But with 1Password, this Emergency Kit (a .pdf file) contains your secret key and your password (you must put the password in).

The Emergency kit contains your secret key and the Master password and is a .pdf file.

Once you install the app on your computer, login and see this:


Lots of categories to store your stuff.

In order to import your passwords from an existing password keeper,  you have to login to the site and import from here.

From 1Password:

Sign in to your account on 1Password.com.
Click your account name in the top right and choose Import.
Click LastPass.
Choose the vault you want to move your data to. If you’re moving personal data, choose the Personal or Private vault.
Paste into the field: right-click (or Control-click) in the text field and click Paste.

This differs from some other password keepers, as others I have tried do this process on your computer and not on the web.

Pasting my Lastpass exported file online will probably keep me from using 1Password, as this process seems unsafe to me.
