Photographer tools come in all shapes and sizes. For instance, I previously shared a list of essential WordPress plugins for photographers and WordPress themes for photographers. So as you might have guessed, in this article, I will tell you why I believe 1Password is an essential photographer tool.
For those who do not know, 1Password is a password management application. Originally, it was developed for Mac, but has since become available for Windows, iOS and Android devices.
- Use multiple Logins for the same site

- Securely sync your data over-the-air between Macs, iPhones, and iPads with Dropbox, or locally over Wi-Fi
- Store other sensitive information in Secure Notes
- Save software licenses and receipts
- Organize everything with tags and folders

Securely store all your passwords. Categorize whether they’re for business or personal. Keep them safe from prying eyes using military grade encryption. Use one one strong password to unlock the application.
Many applications have password generation built-in. However, 1Password does it better because of the advanced settings that you can utilize to create the strongest password you’ll ever see.

In addition, after creating the password, you have the ability to automatically save it to your library.
One of the features that I could see getting overlooked is the accounts section. Here you can add things like your iTunes credentials, email or FTP accounts and so on.
If you need to store private and secure notes, then 1Password is the perfect solution.
Keeping track of your software is so much easier with 1Password. All you have to do is type the name of the software and its license key. Then you can throw the paperwork away.
