How reliable (as against safe from hackers) is 1Password?

Community Member

I have read all the on line info. about how safe from hackers etc. 1P is, and I'm happy with that. But what about reliability? I.e. if I get it to generate multiple lengthy, random and impossible-to-remember passwords for all my important websites, what happens if the system breaks down, or the servers are hacked, or the company goes bankrupt, etc? I know these things are unlikely, but on the principle that for something as important as, say, bank websites or e-mail, should I have a Plan B?

Thank you, Richard

    Hi @rb_stern

    If for some odd reason we and all of our infrastructure disappeared off the face of the earth tomorrow you would still be able to access all of the 1Password data in the 1Password apps that you accessed today. Of course if that happened 1Password wouldn't be updated any further and so it likely wouldn't be a good idea to continue using it long term. You would want to export your data and import it into another tool:

    Of course the chances of that are slim. :)
