Hi - I have a new years resolution of signing up for a password manager and I have read great things about 1Password. Just a couple of quesitons first:
1) How long is the $34.99 sale price last?

2) I would like to have the same password manager active on my MacBook, iPad and iPhone. Is there a seperate fee for iOS devices?

3) I would also like to have my wife and 2 kids using a password manager. Can they use my account too or do you offer a Family Plan?

4) I will be using Microsoft Office (Word mostly) and saving things to OneDrive a lot on my Mac. Does my same 1Password subscription cover OneDrive storage too?

Thanks!

    Hi @Tiger90,

    I'm really glad you're thinking strongly about the security of your data and are going to start using a password manager. That's what we like to see! :)

    How long is the $34.99 sale price last?

    There's not necessarily a specific end date yet, as our sales sometimes last longer than we originally plan - so I wouldn't want to give you an answer that might be wrong. Our current sale just started today, so you have some time before the price returns to normal. In case it helps, we have a free trial for the Mac version of 1Password 5 that you can get from our download site, so you can try it out before deciding if you want to buy it.

    I would like to have the same password manager active on my MacBook, iPad and iPhone. Is there a seperate fee for iOS devices?

    The Mac and iOS versions of 1Password are sold separately, but the good news is that 1Password 5 for iOS is a free download, and offers free basic features. If you would like to unlock the Pro Features in 1Password 5 for iOS, you can do so with an in-app purchase (or you can continue to use the free basic features as long as you want). A single purchase of the Pro Features allows you to unlock them in 1Password 5 on all your iOS 8 devices associated with your Apple ID. We have more information about that in our Pro Features FAQ.

    I would also like to have my wife and 2 kids using a password manager. Can they use my account too or do you offer a Family Plan?

    If you purchase a license for the Mac version of 1Password from the AgileBits Store, that can be shared by up to 6 family members living in the same household, on as many Macs as you each use. If you purchase it from the Mac App Store, that purchase will be associated with your Apple ID, and you can install it on all your Macs as long as you're signed into the Mac App Store with that same Apple ID. Alternately, the Mac App Store version is eligible for Family Sharing, so you and your family members can use it even if you use different Apple IDs for purchases.

    As I mentioned above, the iOS version of 1Password is a free download with free basic features. If you decide to purchase the Pro Features, that purchase would only apply to your Apple ID, because in-app purchases are unfortunately not included in Apple's Family Sharing feature, so Pro Features would be a separate purchase on any family iOS devices that use a different Apple ID.

    I will be using Microsoft Office (Word mostly) and saving things to OneDrive a lot on my Mac. Does my same 1Password subscription cover OneDrive storage too?

    I should start by mentioning that there is no subscription fee for 1Password. When you purchase 1Password, your license for the purchased version will never expire, so you can continue using that version as long as the operating system still supports it. Updates (such as an update from version 5.3 to 5.4) are free. A brand new version might be a paid upgrade, but you don't have to upgrade if you don't want to. We have more information about how licenses work in this knowledgebase article.

    Now as for syncing your data, if you have 1Password 5 for Mac and 1Password 5 for iOS, you can sync them using iCloud, Dropbox, or Wi-Fi sync (please note, iCloud sync requires the Mac App Store version of 1Password 5 for Mac). Technically, the Mac version can sync with OneDrive by using the Folder Sync option, but the iOS version of 1Password doesn't support OneDrive or Folder Sync, so you would need to use one of the other supported sync options. You can read more about your sync options in this user guide article.

    I hope that helps to answer your questions! We're always happy to help, so if you have more questions, please let us know. :)
