1Password & Windows: Access Using Dropbox

HOW TO access 1Password passwords on Windows?

(I had no idea it was this easy.)

This tip uses Dropbox, a multi-platform file syncing app. The only problem is that the access is read-only. But it's better than nothing.

In 1Password (on your mac), select the Agile Keychain to be saved in your dropbox folder (I created a new one, "1Password").

Then in your Windows machine, find this folder.

access_1password_in_windows_01

Open the 1Password.html file and there you have it.

access_1password_in_windows_02

An access to your saved passwords. Just enter the password and you're good to go. Well, almost. The UI ain't perfect, apparently designed to work in OS X while forgetting Windows users. But you get to the data (which is the thing that counts, right?).

Don't have Dropbox? Get it. It's free (and well worth it)!
