1Password updates and our growing team 🎉

Hello everyone,

I hope you’re looking forward to a wonderful holiday season and with any luck you’ve already started shopping and filling your stockings. 🙂

For me and my family, Christmas will be very different this year as we won’t be travelling or having our annual Christmas parties. We’ll make the best of it though and we’re all looking forward to next year when we can get together once again.

We have some great updates to close out the year and lots of holiday cheer to spread so let’s jump right in.

’Tis the season

Last month we decided to have a Giving Thanks special, which ran throughout November, where we would give a $1 donation for every new family account.

I’d like to thank all the families who signed up over the last month and made it possible for us to write some big cheques to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, Food Banks Canada, and the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Together we raised $70,000 USD for charity so far this year! 😍

We had so much fun writing those cheques that I wanted to extend our Giving Thanks special through to the end of the year so that we could write a few more. 🙂

If you do not have a 1Password family account yet, now is a great time to get one and keep your entire family safe online. And to make it even sweeter, you will get your first 10 months of 1Password Families completely free.

With all the savings you’ll be able to place a few more presents under the tree 🎄 or pay it forward to your local charities. In fact, you can save (and give!) even more by getting 1Password completely free through your work.

Free family accounts for business

One of my favourite features of 1Password for Business is that it comes with free family accounts for everyone.

Companies love this feature as good security practices start at home, and employees enjoy being able to keep their passwords separate from business secrets, all while protecting their entire family at the same time.

If you need any help convincing your company to adopt 1Password, please let me know and we’ll be happy to help. You’ll be a hero for helping to secure your entire company while also getting a free family account of your own. Presents for everyone! 🎁

Oh, and all these free family accounts will be included in our donations so you’ll be helping us write an even bigger cheque to these charities. 🙏

Apple fans got some early gifts this year when Tim Cook unveiled the new Macs during the One More Thing event in November.

I ordered mine right away and have been rocking the MacBook Pro 13” for the past few weeks. I’m really impressed with how cool and fast the new M1 chip is and it’s even faster and cooler with the new version of 1Password that has native support for Apple Silicon.

And as far as presents go, the best part is I can now run Clash of Clans on my Mac. After finishing my obsession with Pokémon Go I’ve found a new game to play while waiting for my code to compile. 😂

I hope you have yourself a wonderful holiday season and I wish you the best of luck finding the perfect present for everyone special in your life.

Until next time, take care and please let me know if there’s anything we can can help with.


P.S. Finding the perfect present for my wife this year was once again a mission impossible task. This time around I found a really thoughtful gift and was looking forward to surprising her. That was until it was delivered by Amazon and opened by Sara before I had a chance to wrap it! 😳 Still, I think she’ll like it more than the toaster I got her way back in 2013. 😂
