Software introduces remote data access
Agile Web Solutions has launched a public beta version of 1Password 3, an updated Mac login utility. The software saves passwords and other forms of personal identity for quicker insertion into web forms. Version 3's major addition is said to be inclusion of 1PasswordAnywhere, a feature which lets users remotely access information via a web browser. The update also adds 64-bit support for Snow Leopard, and a new user interface.
Other changes include a tagging system, a section for software licenses, and attachment support which allows organizing and encrypting various files. Users of the 1Password iPhone app now have more control over what data is synced from a Mac.
1Password 3 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and costs $40 in a single-user license, or $70 in a family pack. Because the program is currently only in beta, upgrades from earlier editions have been discounted to $20 for individuals and $30 for families.
