- Why use a password manager?
- A password manager makes your internet experience easier and safer.

- -One master password is all you need to remember to access all of your accounts! It’s like a UCLA single sign on for the entire internet.
-You can bring your passwords with you to any platform: web, desktop, and mobile. The passwords on one platform sync in real time on every other platform. This means, for example, if you change a password for a webpage on your web browser, it will automatically update the password on your tablet and mobile 1Password account.
Compatibility with every major OS: Windows, Mac, and Linux. 1Password even has a command line application.
-1Password is secure:
-The latest algorithms (AES-256, PBKDF2 SHA-256, and salted hashes) are used to encrypt passwords. 1Password never sees your passwords in plaintext and your master password never leaves your machine.
-Your passwords are encrypted and decrypted at the device level. Your master password, and the keys used to encrypt and decrypt data, are never sent to 1Password’ servers and are never accessible by 1Password or the IT Security Office. This means even if your 1Password data is intercepted or compromised, your passwords are still safe. 1Password employs a 'zero-knowledge' model: all sensitive data is encrypted locally at your device with a key that is never transmitted to the host (1Password). As such, even under government subpoena, 1Password could ever only turn over an encrypted blob with no key. This serves to protect your data from internal and external threats alike. This is why it is not guaranteed that your account will be recoverable if your Master Password is lost.
-Additionally, adding DUO MFA provides an extra layer of security for your 1Password account.
