1Password allows you to remember only one password across all of the services you use, while having a unique password for each service.
The “problem” with 1Password, is that you want the password you use to be secure, really secure, so your password for 1Password has to be super long, which you need to manually type whenever you need to access your passwords (that’s for the Mac and Windows versions – on iOS you can use you finger, which is awesome).
I’ve been trying different things over the years (see this blog as an example), but they all felt clunky solutions. This is the best solution I came up with so far.
This blog will show you how to unlock your 1password without typing anything, but still keep it secure (use at your own risk !, there is no substitution from a security standpoint to having your password in your brain only. You need to weigh the ease of use with the security risks associated with this method, and choose if you will use it or not).
ONE MORE THING TO MAKE CLEAR. AgileBits DO NOT endorse this method, and in-fact recommend against solutions like that. You can read more about this in the following blog, and disclaimer from AgileBits below:
We have to advise you to never enter your 1Password Master Password into
anything that isn’t 1Password. We aren’t casting aspersions on the integrity or
competence of any developers, but we simply can’t advise otherwise.
Note: This solution is geared for the Mac, and at the time of writing, the current version of 1Password is version 6.
