I have been using 1Password for very close to a year now, with my subscription up for renewal in about a week. Upon receiving my subscription renewal reminder, I started thinking about how much I use 1Password and if it would be worth extending my subscription. There are a lot of things to factor in, but in the end I realised that I use this product several times daily, and wouldn't want to be without it, so I ended up buying a $99 gift card, so I won't have to think about renewing again for the next couple of years.
Because I store so very many important things in 1Password, I also think about how I can best store my emergency kit so that it is always accessible. Sure, I could print out a copy or two and give it to a friend or family member, but that is so... ordinary, and who knows if I could trust that friend or family member to be able to retrieve that piece of paper years from now?
Enter a more cloak-and-dagger kind of idea for safe storage of the emergency kit that wouldn't require trust in anyone and would leave the safety of the emergency kit in the hands of people renowned for their ability to keep things in order... the local public library.
I wouldn't leave a printout of the emergency kit and my master password per se, but perhaps a post-it note with the secret key on the inside of one book and the master password in another. I would also refrain from labeling them "SECRET KEY" and "MASTER PASSWORD", of course.
There is a risk that the books I choose would be taken out by someone else, but I know a perfect part of the library where they keep very old books that are rarely borrowed, and even if that were to happen, the books would be returned sooner or later.
I'd be interested to get other suggestions for recommended locations for storing the emergency kit that doesn't involve trust in third parties such as friends, family, or attorneys.
