Third time see this promotion, according to previous experience:
1) You don't have to provide credit card information to get this promo, there is an "add later" option
2) It will show only1month trial in the cellphone app. Login on computer browser to see the remaining days.
3) Not sure when it expires.

Thread Summary
1Password keeps your data in Canada so Canadian privacy laws apply. This is a good thing.

The other leading app, Last Pass, is an American company meaning your data is subject to American laws and you are treated as a non-citizen, which is very bad.

$6 monthly for a family account is pretty significant compared to free or $10 annually for Bitwarden.

Could not agree more. Have been using Dashlane for years (still have time left until 2023) but have already switched to Bitwarden. Great password manager and works on all platforms and browsers and keeps all in sync.

Lastpass stores all the websites you keep passwords for in plain text, and sells their users' site data. Nobody should use it.

I had Sticky Password lifetime and also switched to it because it works more smoothly and easily and integrates better.

Source?

Edit: I'd like to know since it's my personal favorite. Works well in firefox, on iOS, and it's free.

Security practitioner here. Very interested in why you believe this. Source?

Moved away from 1Password once they started getting into subscriptions and stopped adding features to one-time purchase version. LastPass was a great, secure experience for me. Free plan was good enough.

I’ve since moved to MyKi which I like the most (integrated 2FA, no server storage, no subscription, etc.). Highly recommend Myki over all the above.

99.9% sure this is a load of bu**.
Please state a source.
LastPass is widely respected in this space, so unless you can provide some evidence, this would be fake news.

This has been known for years. It's like the fifth time I mention it in a Lastpass thread on RFD

LastPass could use this information to track what sites are in your vault, how often you visit them, how often you log into them, etc. I would encourage you to read their privacy policy for information on what they may share or sell to third parties. Having this type of data on millions of users would be extremely valuable.
Worst of all, URLs can (and often do) contain sensitive data. For example, an HTTP basic auth URL might look like this: https://username:password@website.com. Or you might unknowingly store a URL that contains a password reset token in it (which isn’t hard to do with LastPass’s features that assist you in automatically onboarding new sites in your vault). It’s important that you audit your site’s URLs in LastPass for any such data.
Think about it, Logmein provides dozens of millions of free accounts to people. Do you really think they are doing this for free? They also did the same thing for Xmarks when they ran it, before it got shut down.

Why would I use a product from a dubious company like Logmein, when there is a more trustworthy alternative that doesn't send all my visited sites to a third party in plain text? My site history is nobody's business but mine. And for that matter, why would I pay every year for 1password to pay their employees' GTA office and wages?

As a consumer, there is a simple rule in three words to follow when you wonder why something doesn't make sense: follow the money.

My year subscription is due to end in August, have paid for 2 years. Made a new account and will migrate everything over so I get a few months for free down the line!

Considering how many times they’ve done this yearly free promotion, I don’t know why I renewed lol. I guess they are still trying to get word out considering how much competition is now in this space.

FWIW, 1Password is by far my favourite out of all the options. They are also a Canada based company!
