well this could be interesting. I'm a big fan of the standalone version of 1Password.

"Furthermore, the company is said to have carved out a deal that includes family plans, giving up to 5 family members of each employee a free license for 1Password."

Coming soon to eBay thumbs up

Hmm. Guess I'll hold off on a 1password license upgrade for a while longer.

UPDATE: AgileBits said in a tweet from its 1Password account that it has not been acquired and plans to remain independent. From 1Password Twitter: "Rumours of my acquisition are completely false. My humans and I are happily independent and plan to remain so."

Translation: Talks are still ongoing. Looks like AgileBits is playing hardball.

Glad you threw that translation in! Because that's my take as well. Translation: "We have a price. They just haven't hit it yet."

"Rumours of my acquisition are completely false. My humans and I are happily independent and plan to remain so."

Translation: If we were in talks, we'd not comment at all, instead of saying the rumors are false and that we're remaining independent, thereby risking possible SEC violations.

I don't think it's that unusual to deploy utilities like 1Password that widely. My organization has about 3,000 people and we all have access to 1Password for free.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

One wonders about the impact such an acquisition might have on the Windows version of 1Password.



It is what it is.

My institution would be wise to deploy this free of charge for our employees. It would be simple - we are recording you, so put whatever stuff you don't want us to know about behind the 1password vault. If we FIND anything inappropriate, it's not OUR fault.
