LastPass may be our current top pick for best password manager, but it’s not the only great service out there. 1Password is a favorite among PCWorld staff and alumni. Currently for Black Friday, new subscribers can grab a sweet deal on the Families plan: 50% off for the first year after your 14-day trial ends, or $30 out the door. We’d choose it over LastPass at that price.
1Password has an advantage over other password managers, as it can accommodate large families (or “families”, as they prefer to be called). There is no additional cost for additional users beyond the six included, unlike rival plans which have a hard limit at a fixed number. You get more robust features than other extra-large plans, too. 1Password has a unique feature called Travel Mode. It allows you to temporarily remove passwords (e.g. from your phone) while you are on the go and then restore them later. It adds an extra layer of protection.
You don’t need a family policy? The individual plan is also 50% off, or $18 for the first year. You can also save money on future renewals. Just purchase one of 1Password’s discounted digital gift cards to keep the gravy train rolling. This deal is not available with any other password manager deals so don’t hesitate to purchase one of 1Password’s discounted digital gift cards.
