Android password manager 1Password review: Now available for individuals also. Password manager 1Password has a new subscription plan for individual customers. Following the success of its family and team platforms, developer AgileBits this week introduced a service aimed at single users.

1Password Introduces $2.99/Month Plan for Individuals, With 6 Months Free at Sign-Up

Our new individual hosted service comes with everything you expect from 1Password, along with these new features:

-Built-in automatic sync across all devices
-Data loss protection
-Web access to your data on 1Password.com
-Item History for restoring deleted or changed items
-Secure Document storage
-Brand new multi-factor security model

There is a need for increased online security

You hear all the time that you should keep separate passwords for each of your online logins, but that’s definitely easier said than done. With the need for increased online security, we’ve seen the rise of password managers, and while some of those are free, many of the better ones require some form of payment. One of those is 1Password, which demands an up-front price of $64.99 on the iOS App Store, though family and team subscriptions are available for a monthly fee.

1Password announcing a new monthly subscription for personal use

The problem, though, is this sort of left the individual user out in the cold, unless they wanted to pay more each month for licenses they weren’t going to use. That all changes today, with 1Password announcing a new monthly subscription for personal use. Unlike the team and family memberships, which come in at $3.99 and $4.99 per month respectively, the new personal plan will only set you back $2.99 per month.

Includes hosted backup, allowing you to sync your passwords across a variety of devices

This plan seems to feature most – if not all – of the same stuff that buying 1Password outright gets you, which includes hosted backup, allowing you to sync your passwords across a variety of devices and access them on the web. The monthly subscription also comes with 1GB of cloud storage, allowing you back up documents in addition to your passwords. On top of that, a monthly subscription nets you an item history that lasts for an entire year, letting you restore passwords that you may have accidentally deleted or changed.

First six months of service for free

1Password is also offering the first six months of service for free for anyone who signs up for an individual plan, so if you’ve been looking around for a password manager, it might be worth your time to give 1Password a shot. This promotions runs until September 21, and one important thing to point out is that 1Password isn’t requiring users who sign up for the free six month trial to add a credit card, so there’s no real risk of getting charged for a subscription you didn’t want when the trial runs out.

The individual subscription service runs on the same new hosted platform that AgileBits created for 1Password Teams and 1Password Families. The company said that using the $2.99 per month subscription model provides users with “the simplest and most feature-packed way to use 1Password.”

Our new individual hosted service comes with everything you expect from 1Password, along with these new features:

-Built-in automatic sync across all devices
-Data loss protection
-Web access to your data on 1Password.com
-Item History for restoring deleted or changed items
-Secure Document storage
-Brand new multi-factor security model

As a launch special, anyone who signs up for the new individual plan will get the first six months of 1Password free, without needing to even add their credit card information into the app. To take advantage of the offer, users will need to sign up for the $2.99 per month model before September 21, 2016. The 1Password app is available to download from the iOS App Store for free– with the option to choose a one-and-done upgrade to 1Password Pro for $9.99 — and the Mac App Store for $64.99.
