    1Password, the password management utility made famous on the Mac, is now available on the Android Market! Android 2.1 is required. You will need to manually copy the data over to the phone, however, as there is no automatic sync option available between your smartphone and Mac (instructions here).

    There is also a beta version for Windows available here.

    Now I never tried the software, and I would be a bit hesitant to save all my passwords in one location, as this could be a treasure trove for snoopers or hackers. However, the software has been highly rated by many reputable tech journals, from CNET to Macword Magazine (testimonials here). CNET goes as far as to say that "1Password is the best software available to keep your logins secure."

    And to top it all off, 1Password for Android is free! (by contrast, Mac version costs $39.99). Check out the screenshots below for a sneak peak at what to expect:

    Has anyone here used 1Password? What are your impressions of the service, and will you be using this on your Android handset?

    I just tried it out. It seems that this app is not standalone - you HAVE to have the mac or windows version to create the initial password file. Without the password file, the app won't load past the initial error screen. I don't use mac or windows, but I was hoping to have a trustworthy mobile storage of passwords without needing a mac or windows PC.

    The screenshots make it look like it will work by itself - perhaps that's only once you load the password file. But then you still have to keep that file synchronized manually - if you add a password to the mobile one you have to copy that file over to the PC or vice versa.

    Thanks for the responses. It looks like the Windows beta is free. Maybe someone can test the app with that version?

    I've been a long-time user of the 1Password app on my mac system. I have really liked it and it's worked well. I used the iphone app when it came out and, after a few issues, it worked well. I downloaded the new android app onto my droid and it fails to open. It immediately force closes. I tried it again today and had the same results.

    I just tested the 1Password. You need to enter the password files onto the Mac or PC, then transfer the files manually to the SD card. You will then have access to your passwords on the droid. However, you cannot edit any password nor to create a new one the phone.

    This the type of app that will become popular if it works and then some hacker would glee just knowing he can get access to user's personal information. I'd rather pass on this.

    Alternative to 1Password

    I've been using SplashID by Handango for years. I've had it on my Palm Treo and Centro. It is available for the Droid and works great! The app is available through the Android Market for the Droid or you can get the Droid app and desktop app (PC or MAC) through Handango. The two apps are $39.95. A really nice feature is that you can synch your computer with the Droid over a WiFi connection. dancedroid

    Wow, this is a huge plus for me I can tell and it's just now installing.

    I don't know how many times I've had to come down to my Mac to get a PW. I just loaded up 1 Password from my Mac and all my PW's are now in one place. I give it a thumbs up.

    The app is a complete failure... Does any know what the approval process is for an app to be put on the Market?

    Can you elaborate? Do you have 1Password installed on your Mac or PC? That's the only way the Android app will work.

    1Password no good for Android

    The Android version is only a reader; In fact the app name is "1Password Reader." New entries can only be placed on the phone by entering them via the desktop version, getting phone and PC on the same network and then syncing from the phone's version.
    This application worked well on the desktop and the phone until I ran the last update which modified the phone display format. Now, instead of the descriptive list from your desktop you must wrestle with the full URL. Long URLs do not work at all and don't display passwords.
    An email response from the manufacturer said that a future update would resolve these issues. That was a couple of months ago and I am still waiting. It seems that the Android version is not their top priority.
