Go ahead and dive in.
Read up about how to set up a very secure 3 or 4 work master pass phrase.
Work out a way of noting that passphrase so you can always find it but others could not decrypt your note.
1Password just makes security so much easier to implement.
My story, I'd been using 1Password for years but not fully implementing its features. I was a very basic user - just felt my way in and used what I found - thought I was doing OK, but I now know its so much more than a simple password storage "vault"..
--- A few years ago I discovered that one of my online accounts was compromised [Vodafone, I reckon they were hacked] and 1Password helped me to recover with very practical steps.:
1: analyse all my duplicated and web passwords,
2: generate new proper secure ones,
3: use those myriad passwords day to day. I especially appreciate the browser and iOs plug ins.
