before i start i will try to write as clear as i can, as long english is not my main language i might do lot's of writing mistakes but even that i hope everyone will understand what i want to say.
i never liked or used cloud services, i am not even using ICloud even i am an apple product's users for years.
i have 1password since 2015,paid on IOS and still free version on mac. i have nothing against subscription because everyone should be paid for keeping a software live,updated and safe that requires lot's of work behind the scene and nobody is going to do it for free for years.
the only problem i have is with CLOUD service where i should put all my private and precious info,till now i only synced my devices using WI-Fi sync and everything work's great as long my files never leave my devices.
so,is possible to buy a subscription (just to unlock my 1password for mac and remove the limitations i have now with free version) but never use the cloud? i mean is there an option to not sync the devices using cloud and only sync via WiFI ? as soon i sign up all my 1password items will auto go to cloud or i will be asked if want to do this and have the option to disable it so my items never hit the cloud?
the most scaring thing for me is to put my master password in any browser. how safe is that?
i am reading lots of forum threads and lots of internet articles and i found this today which might make sense -
AgileBits says that your password never leaves your browser, and while trusting the company is reasonable, Thomas H. Ptáček noted to me via Twitter that the point is to not have to trust them. “I’m 100% behind 1Password on monthly subscriptions, so long as users I help never have to enter passwords on 1Password.com,” he tweeted. But because using 1Password.com requires entering the master password for your cloud-sync vault on a Web page, even if AgileBits says it’s never transmitted, Ptáček finds the entire system problematic. However, he notes, “I am very confident they will figure this out, by the way, and that I’ll be able to recommend 1Password in the near future.”
hope you guys can advice me and understand what i am trying to say above.i have no problem to pay a subscription but i am not ready yet to use the cloud. of course i can buy a standalone license but is double price and maybe in the future i will use cloud too so at this moment subscription would be cheaper and more convenient for me but, again, only if there is an option to not put my info in cloud.
P.S - everyone that use 1password apps and software should understand that paying a subscription is required to keep a software up to date , a company motivated, and making 1password better,safer and adding new features with every update.
and paying 1cofee/month fur such a great software is a great deal in my opinion and nobody should complain about that.i have many one time fee software's that stopped working and not getting any updates in years.one time fee software's ,sooner or later they will die.
just my 2cents
