Does 1Password have lifetime licensing or do you have to buy upgrades regularly? In which case $12 a year doesn't seem so much.
Lifetime. As I said, this is my pick- and he asked about 1Password. I like it- I paid once when the windows beta was first commercially available, and I haven't looked back. It works on all of my machines and devices, everything is synced, and it's also transparent how it's encrypted to me, so I don't personally care that I'm using dropbox, though it does have other methods of syncing if you don't even trust them with encrypted data (though I don't see why that would matter if its encrypted). It works in my browser, and they have excellent support. The only thing I don't like is the fact that you have to close the browser to update the desktop client (and they're pretty active on development
, and since I have it on my full 5 machines and don't open the client all the time, it seems that every time I open a client I have to update). Oh... it also has a search extension, i.e. type 1Password: and search for whatever in your address bar which is sometimes useful.
Is it worth it over other alternatives? From what I've seen, I'd say so. But as I've been using it for a couple of years, so I haven't really looked at anything else since I haven't seen the need.
OT, It's cool if you're satisfied with Lastpass... I've not tried it in a while. I do know that reading the posts from people that had been locked out of their accounts and couldn't access with "the last password they'd ever need" sort of left a bad taste in my mouth, perhaps undeservedly. But slighting the other software's security when I know its encrypted on my computer with a private key that they don't have seems a bit backhanded... /shrugs
