1Password for Android is free during a trial period of 30 days. It’s an opportunity for users to assess the service and all the features. At the end of 30 days, you need to make an in-app purchase to access Pro features. However, you can still enjoy Reader functionality via fingerprint access.

The Pro version lets you add any number of items, edit existing items, create folders to organize data, and label items as favorites.

Once you’ve created a Master Password, you can begin using the Android app. Create items, easily login into websites, mark websites as favorites, and do much more.

1Password Families

1Password Families serves as a single password manager for the entire family, and it’s a mere $5 per month for five family members. Instead of purchasing 1Password apps separately, you get access to all of them free once you subscribe to the Families package. There is substantial saving to be had this way. The apps and upgrades are made available free.

Send an email to your family members to invite them for sharing 1Password, and once they accept, you can sync, share, and manage stuff together. Adding an additional member costs one dollar a month. 1Password Families works with the latest version of the 1Password apps on OS X (Yosemite and newer), iOS 9, and Android 5.0 or newer.

You can try out 1Password free for a month. At the end of the trial period, you will be required to add your credit card information, not before. If your subscription lapses, you can continue to use 1Password; however, you will not be able to add new data.

1Password Teams


1Password Teams enables teams to work in a more secure environment. The administrator controls the information that team members can access. Create vaults that assigned team members can access instantly. Information exchange can happen in real time. Decision-making is greatly facilitated. You can micro manage everything from the admin console, including allowing team members to login with a password that they cannot see. You can restore access to an account if a Master Password ever gets lost. Add temporary members and outsiders to projects with ease. Once their role is fulfilled, you can easily remove them from the system.

1Password Teams uses end-to-end data encryption. Share documents and sensitive information without having to worry about hacking or phishing attempts. Tools such as Master Password Creator and Robust Phishing Defense add to the sturdiness and robustness of the product. While all data is encrypted and sent to the 1Password Teams server, the Master Password and account key is not transferred to any server. It means that 1Password cannot decrypt or decode your data.
