With more people creating a variety of online accounts and putting more information online and with the increase in the number of hacks trying to get into accounts, having a password manager is worth looking into. One of my favorite password managers, 1Password, has been available on the Mac platform for years and works seamlessly with a variety of browsers. 1Password is also available on the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad. Well, imagine my surprise to see that Agile Web Solutions has released a beta of 1Password for Windows!

While it does not yet have feature parity with the Mac version, it’s an excellent first version. There are plugins for Internet Explorer and Firefox at the moment, with support for Chrome being mentioned.

To easily sync your data between Windows and Mac, Agile Web Solutions suggests using Dropbox the keep both copies in sync. I’ve been using this solution for a while now on multiple Macs and it works very well. (A bonus of using this method is that your passwords are all also available securely on the web your DropBox account via the 1Password Anywhere feature.)
