The video makes reference to two prior videos we’ve done here—Jason Snell’s overview of Dropbox, and Dan Frakes’ look at 1Password. Both provide additional details on the programs I’m using in this video, and are well worth watching.

If you need more help getting this working, this page on the Agile Solutions site contains step-by-step instructions, although the screenshots are somewhat out of date.

If you have more than one Mac in your home, and you use a lot of password-protected web sites, the combination of 1Password and Dropbox is tough to beat for easy and worry-free synching.
