1PasswordAnywhere

Thanks to 1PasswordAnywhere, you need never leave home without your 1Password data. 1PasswordAnywhere gives you password-protected access to your encrypted 1Password data when you are away from your computer. You can open your data file in a modern browser, enter your master password, view any of your data, and copy it to the Clipboard for pasting elsewhere. If you use Windows at work, Linux on campus, a Mac at a friend’s house, and who-knows-what on vacation, with 1PasswordAnywhere you can look up that Login, Secure Note, or Credit Card item, whenever you need it.

All you need to use 1PasswordAnywhere is access to your 1Password.agilekeychain folder. You can sync it to the web or copy it to another computer, a USB flash drive, or some other removable storage device. Dropbox, the file sync’ing service used for 1Password for Windows, is a great option for 1PasswordAnywhere, too. Not only can you store and use your 1Password data in a Dropbox folder on your PC, but any files you store in Dropbox—including your 1Password data—can be synchronized among all your computers and mobile devices and accessible on your private Dropbox web site. Because of this and other unique Dropbox features, 1PasswordAnywhere works very well if you store your 1Password data in your Dropbox account, which happens automatically if you’re using Dropbox to sync your 1Password data.

To use 1PasswordAnywhere

  1. Locate your stored copy of your 1Password.agilekeychain folder.

    Note: On a Mac, the folder will look like a single file. This is normal—just Control-click it, and choose Show Package Contents.

  2. Double-click the 1Password.html file you find inside.

  3. Enter your master password on the “vault door” screen.

Note that 1PasswordAnywhere will lock itself after 1 minute of inactivity.
