1Password has been named one of G2’s Best Software Products of 2021 and is the only password manager to appear on the list. That seems as good a reason as any to share a brief recap of some highlights from the last 12 months.
In 2020, in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus, many businesses made the shift to working from home. This unexpected transition to remote work left many businesses scrambling to adjust to new ways of working.
We responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by offering businesses 1Password free for 6 months, sharing our experience around remote work and security, and helping businesses adjust to the changing nature of the workplace.
Though 2020 posed challenges for 1Password – as it has for many – in some ways it’s been a great year for us. The number of businesses using 1Password grew to over 75,000, as more companies shifted to remote work and began looking for a secure way to share information and passwords outside of a physical workspace.
With plans for both small teams and enterprise-level businesses, we have been able to meet the growing needs of companies looking for more oversight of passwords and other sensitive business information.
This last year, we made it possible to deploy 1Password org-wide via Slack Enterprise Grid, and we launched an integration with Privacy to help people make online payments more safely and easily – at work and at home.
And we upped our focus on supporting and developing all our 1Password apps, doubling down on our commitment to give our customers complete control over how they store and use their data.
It’s always wonderful to be recognized for creating a quality product that is appreciated by industry professionals and users. Thank you to G2 and everyone who voted to make 1Password the best password manager for 2021.
