expired1Password for Mac keeps your accounts and information safe, now $25 (Reg. $50)

Update (1/21 11:00am):

  • The Mac Power Users promo has expired, it is still available at the $25 sale price direct or in the Mac App Store.
  • AgileBits is now offering 1Password for Mac for $19.99 when promo code MACPOWERUSERS is applied during checkout. That’s the best price that we’ve ever seen on this Mac utility. Version 6 now includes the ability to sync via iCloud, even on software purchased via Agilebits.

It’s 2016, and if you’re still using a piece of paper to store your passwords or using any of these as your login, now is the time to make a change. 1Password is the leading application for managing your passwords securely on Mac and iOS. AgileBits does an excellent job of continually updating the app for both platforms, adding support for third-party browsers, unique one-time passwords and more in the last year.

This morning it dropped from its usually $50 price in the Mac App Store down to $24.99. Today’s deal is a savings of 50% off the regular going rate and the lowest price that we’ve seen in nearly two years. Rated 4.5/5 stars by nearly 4,700 reviewers all-time.

Pixelmator has an all-time rating of 4.5/5 stars by over 3,600 App Store users.
