1Password and VC funding

Posted on Nov 15, 2019

There’s a ton of predictable piling-on on Twitter regarding the 1Password announcement about getting a VC infusion from Accel. I know the track record for these kinds of things isn’t great, but my opinion right now is that I don’t have enough information to have an opinion. All I have to go on is the years of reliable utility I’ve gotten out of 1Password. I’m as leery of “our incredible journey” language as everyone else is, but so many people are hyper-ready to dump a good app or service at the first mention of news like this. The 1PW team has always seemed like they want to do the right thing. Why not wait to at least see what happens before bailing? Also, is your online identity really that tied up in which password manager you use?
