All the details of the latest iPhone application and a step by step guide available after the jump.

Agile Web Solutions, the makers of 1Password have announced that 1Password 2.5 sports a new icon on its toolbar "Sync to iPhone" clicking on which will export all your 1Password data to an encrypted Safari Bookmarklet, which can then be used on the iPhone (or even iPod Touch) to access all your information.

In case you are worried about data security, David Teare, co-author of 1Password points out that everything is encrypted with some seriously strong cryptography, namely 448-bit Blowfish with Cipher Block Chaning (CBC) and randomized salt.

Unfortunately, 1Password is currently only available for Mac OS X.
