I had a very old version of 1 password3 for Windows & Mac that was nice in its time, but I soon stopped using it since probably due to being lazy and transitioning my life to Mac. The recent Equifax event has me thinking I should actively work to secure my information even though they tell me I was not affected. So I have a few questions:
1) My old license will not do anything since they were vintage 2008 and there is no upgrade path. My first instinct was to look for license upgrades, but as best I can tell these are no longer offered. But it seems I can get them via the Apple store.
2) It seems the subscription model is the plan nowadays which means you will be keeping all my data in your cloud. I am trying to convince myself this is a good idea. After all, Equifax is a much bigger company than Agilebits and they screwed up. On the security page, you have a lot about levels of encryption shown as nice diagrams. I was recently shocked by this password hacking video that a friend posted. I do not understand much of the stuff in the video or on your security page for that matter, but why should I be confident that if an Equifax type breach happens to my 1Password account it will not matter because the techniques shown in the video are not effective.
3) Are there safe options for me to keep my vault private using something like iCloud and would that be more secure than the Agilebits cloud. It seems all the information of the website focuses on the cloud, but is that more secure than local archives. The big downside I see for the cloud is a single break in yields massive account access while no=one is looking to find my little vault on some service I use to store it.
I put a small amount of $ into a 1Password system long ago and it seems either a subscription or upgrades every few years will be needed to keep a workable system going. Thus I should select a system that can be trusted long term. Why are you guys better than Equifax at keeping data secure?
