1Password is available for Android!

Hey there! We’re moving forward quickly with Android development, check out some updated information here!

Hooray! We’ve got great news for Android phone owners: 1Password is now available for Android! We’ve heard for a while now that this was high on our users’ wish list, and we’re thrilled to be able to deliver. We’re even making it free during the beta period!

We’re looking for your feedback. We’ve already seen so many posts from our passionate Android users that we know we’re going to get the feedback that will make this truly great. Check out the forums and join the conversation!

Note that 1Password for Android is a read-only application. You can securely access your logins, passwords, notes and credit cards, but you can’t add new items from your phone.

Installation is simple. Before you get started, though, we just want to say again that this is a beta. Please back up your data before you install the 1Password beta for Android. Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to begin:

  1. Find the Market application icon on your Android phone and tap it to launch.

  2. On the main Market page, tap the search button in the top right corner.

  3. Type 1Password in the search field, and select the 1Password application when you see it in the search results.

  4. Read the application description, and then tap the “Install” button.

You should now have a 1Password icon on your phone’s screen.

Finished

Next, you’ll need to copy over your 1Password data. It’s just a couple of steps:

  1. Find your 1Password data file:
    • On Mac, you can look in 1Password > Preferences > General to find your Data File location. The default is Home > Library > Application Support > 1Password > 1Password.agilekeychain.
    • If you are using the Windows Beta, your 1Password.agilekeychain is likely stored in your DropBox folder.
  2. Copy the 1Password.agilekeychain folder to the root directory of your phone’s SD card. You can connect your phone with a USB cable, or—if you’re lucky enough to have a new Mac which has one—use your SD card slot.

That’s it! You can now launch 1Password on your Android phone. You should see the unlock screen where you can enter the same Master Password that you used on the Desktop. Now you’ve got mobile access to all of your 1Password data, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! Please join us in the forums and let us know!
