Creating and managing passwords is an important aspect of online life today. With the many data breaches issues and passwords being exposed, having a solid system that can manage all of your passwords while making them easily accessible is something we all should implement. 1Password is a password management system that helps you create, store, and access your passwords, as well as other sensitive information such as credit cards, passports, and even wills, trusts, and other important documents.

This is all stored in an encrypted database that stays in sync with all of your devices. Once you've created a master password, you can open what 1Password calls your vaults to access all your stored information.
