I want to exclude those to keep it more secure. How hackproof are those programs?

1Password has a very detailed article explaining just how their security works: http://help.agilebits.com/1Password3/agile_keychain_design.h...

Excerpt:
The core of the encryption is AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) using 128-bit encryption keys and performed in Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode along with a randomized Initialization Vector.


Since they don't store any of your data on their servers, there is no centralized server to hack.

My preference for 1Password is because I use multiple operating systems, and 1Password is available for all four, and (using their optional DropBox integration) keeps everything in sync.

They have apps for:
• Windows (I use both XP and 7)
• OS X
• iOS
