  1. While I find all these apps great, a particular app – 1Password or rather all the apps of this kind really raise a big concern in my opinion. 

    It is similar to keeping one password for all the services a person uses or should I say its like putting all your eggs in one basket. If 1password is hacked how safe are your other services?
