What is 1Password

1Password is a password manager developed by AgileBits. It provides a place for users to store various passwords, software licenses, and other sensitive information in a virtual vault that is locked with a PBKDF2-guarded master password. Store anything from logins and secure notes to SSH keys and sensitive documents. You can even monitor and mitigate security risks like potential breaches, password health, and team usage from your insights dashboard.
