Take Control of 1Password (1.2.1) (2014)

Chapter 1. Password Quick Start

If you’re new to 1Password, I suggest working your way through this book in linear order, or at least starting with the first two chapters (Meet 1Password and Understand Password Security), which provide important context for the rest of the book. If you’re an experienced 1Password user, feel free to jump right to any topic of interest, such as Deal with Version 4 Changes in the Solve Problems chapter.

·        Discover 1Password’s components, walk through setting up and using its major features, and start syncing; see Meet 1Password.

·        Find out what makes a password strong or weak in Understand Password Security.
