1Passwords Previews New Features Headed to the Popular Password Manager
The team behind the popular password manager 1Password has just previewed a number of new features arriving soon.
Taking feedback from users requests on social media, the company then decided to make many of those a reality.
First up, users of 1Password 8 will be able to reorder fields and sections inside items. In each item, you can easily add a number of other custom information sections for additional customization. To help make it even better, just drag and drop how you would like.
Another addition is that ability to search within a list of items. That makes it easy to quickly find the item you need.
For even more security options, you will also be able to soon use a device PIN code or pattern to unlock the app. Those will join the existing biometric or account password option. For Face ID users, the app will work more consistently in 1Password for iOS and the Safari extension.
Anyone who uses a number of private and shared vaults, you will be able to set a default vault for new items that you save in the browser so you will always know where the information is saved.
A better set up process for new users will make it easier for anyone, no matter their technical expertise, the use the app.
Other smaller improvements include an offline indicator, the ability to delete and edit vaults, simpler instructions to create an autofill, and more ways to customize the home screen.
You can download 1Password 8 now on the App Store for free. The app is available on the iPhone and iPad along with the Apple Watch version.
A subscription is needed to use the app. An individual subscription is available for $3.99 monthly or $35.99 per year.
To share with up to five other family members, you’ll need a 1Password Families subscription. That’s $6.99 monthly or $59.99 annually.
Both options offer a free, 14-day trial.
