I've been a happy, single-license user of 1Password on Mac and iOS for several years now. I'm pretty satisfied with local vaults, synced across my local wifi. I like the interface and the frequent updates.
However, I've been championing password keepers to my family and recently had an incident in which my cousin, on my advice, downloaded 1Password to her Windows machine, only to find that the current version doesn't support local vaults. The 1Password folks were good about explaining this to me and seeking an option to get her 1Password 4, but no dice. (I'm not sold on passwords in the cloud yet, and since I don't have to do it, it's hard for me to argue to my cousin that SHE should do it.)
As the resident tech support guy for about four extended family members, I try to be on top of the key software they use, usually by recommending the software I use. Lacking a 1Password solution for her, and reading all the strong reviews for LastPass, I started giving it a look.
Suffice it to say that, especially since the basic version is free and the premium version is only $24/year (vs $59.88/yr for 1Password's family-capable version), it's intriguing. I don't like its forced use of web-based sync any more than I like it in 1Password for Windows. But, if I'm going to start giving more weight to a "family-centric" approach to passwords, I might have to "get over it." And, since 1Password for Windows (for my cousin) has no projected delivery date, I can't recommend telling my cousin to keep her 1Password subscription while she waits. (And, just for clarity, I have no interest in sharing passwords with my cousin or managing her passwords or password keeper; any "family" aspect of our use would be for me, my spouse, and kids.)
Don't get me wrong, I like 1Password and AgileBits a lot, particularly the interface, an area where I find LastPass lacking. And, if I'm going to accept the idea of passwords in the cloud, why not stick with 1Password, right? (The answer is the price.)
Given the situation I've described above, anyone want to offer reasons we shouldn't leap to LastPass?
