1Password Watchtower

Agile Bits:

Earlier this month, we introduced our new Watchtower service on the web. In its initial version, Watchtower checks whether a website is (or ever was) vulnerable to the internet’s nasty Heartbleed security bug, then tells you whether it’s safe to update your password.

Now we’ve taken the next major step and made it much easier to stay secure online, as Watchtower can now check all your Logins at once, right inside 1Password for Mac.

Great idea for protecting people from Heartbleed, but I’m finding it annoying to use because there’s no obvious way to tell it which sites’ passwords have already been changed. It also reports some sites such as PayPal as requiring a password change, though they’ve been reported elsewhere to be unaffected.
