  • I am having trouble with 1 passwords current pricing scheme. A tad over what I am willing to pay. I tried out the new version for my free month, but now my 1 password is hosed and I can’t seem to go back to the one that worked.

    I guess I will have to hope that Keychain just keeps getting better.

  • This sounds great! I have been using 1Password for many years but it is a pain to have to go to the app, copy the password and then go back to Safari and paste it in. It will be nice to skip this step.
