1Password 4 for Android and Windows are a hit!

Windows Android hero

June has been quite the month for us! We released 1Password 4 for Android and Windows, and we’re thrilled that you like us. You really, really like us!

For the v4 Android debut, Android CentralBoy Genius Report, Lifehacker, and PCMag were excited, with SlashGear saying it “does justice to its namesake.” The Next Web went in-depth with the new version, The Verge says “this is the password manager you should be using,” and then there’s GreenbotGotta Be Mobile, International Business Times, and plenty more.

On the Windows side, InfoWorld called v4 a “strong password manager” and lists it among the best. SlashGear and Engadget are excited, and TechCentral says it’s an “impressive password management tool”. Then there’s PC & Tech Authority, SoftonicTechgear, iPhoneclub… and that’s probably enough links for one day.

We are absolutely delighted to get these major releases out there, and the feedback to support and in our forums has been fantastic! We put “Agile” in our name for a reason, so there’s plenty more where this came from. To see what we have coming next, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and our newsletter!

1Password 4 for Android is coming [UPDATE: It's here!]

1P4 Android bot[Major important update: it's here!]

We’ve been busy. Not just busy—busy. A while ago we decided that we could rebuild 1Password Reader for Android. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the greatest 1Password for Android the world has ever seen. We then set out to do it.

Now it’s done.

1Password 4 for Android arrives on Tuesday, June 10. It is an entirely new and full-featured app, built for both phones and tablets!

It is also an experiment. All new features will be unlocked and free for everyone to use through August 1, 2014. After that, 1Password 4 for Android will go into a reader mode, and all features can be unlocked for an in-app purchase.

1Password 4 for Android: The beta, like winter, is coming!

Android Signup Banner

You might have noticed that this summer a couple of interesting screenshots appeared in our Dropbox folder, and then here on the blog.

You also might have noticed that we ran a rather large beta test for our Mac version.

Now those two great tastes will taste great together! We’ve set up a shiny new (if I do say so myself) Android beta newsletter signup page.

If you ever sent us an email or a tweet asking about the future of 1Password on Android, now’s your chance to help shape that future.

It’s an opt-in newsletter, so we’ll send you a message with a confirmation link to click just to be sure you meant to sign up, and to make sure we got your address right.

1Password Stories: Tips and Tricks from our customers

We hear a lot of great 1Password tips and stories from customers. Sometimes it’s a clever trick, others it’s a great story about helping a family member, friend, or coworker discover 1Password or make a feature click in just the right way. Eventually, one of our Agile folks asked a simple question: why keep all this great stuff to ourselves?

Enter 1Password Stories, a new series we want to use to share these nuggets of awesome so everyone can get more out of 1Password. To kick this off, I want to start with some clever tricks that customers shared in our Agile forums and our Facebook Page:

  • Nick Peelman says he started using 1Password to store serial numbers for all his hardware. “I used to keep the note stored in plain text in Dropbox,” Nick wrote in our forum, “but using 1Password makes it a little easier to access, and as expected, more secure.”But wait, there’s more to it: “It’s handy to have a running list of serials for your hardware should anything ever go missing or get stolen. Storing that list securely in a cloud-based system makes it that much handier. It’s also a good way to identify your stuff among other people’s, should similar items ever get jumbled together.”Nick’s trick can be useful for all sorts of other situations, like adding these things to your insurance policy or calling customer support for service.
  • “bbinder” says he stopped bookmarking sites in browsers and started relying on 1Password and trick involving a couple of third-party apps. After all, by saving a site for a Login, you’re already creating a bookmark in 1Password, right? bbinder fancies LaunchBar, which is a great productivity utility that lets you control your Mac and do all sorts of things with just a couple strokes of the keyboard. In June this year, LaunchBar added support for looking up and opening your 1Password Logins, which was right up bbinder’s alley: “With LaunchBar’s 1Password integration, I hit the shortcut to open LaunchBar, then type in “1p” > space bar > and start typing away to get to the 1,000+ sites I have, condensed to what I am looking for.”A similar trick works with the 1Password extension in Chrome, and bbinder is all over it: “Since Chrome is my default browser on my Mac, I get the site opened [via my LaunchBar process] and get to work after 1Password fills in the site credentials and I’m on my way. If there are other sites I need to get to in a hurry, It’s a quick Command+T to open a new tab, type in 1p and hit the tab key and start typing in the site name and 1P automatically shows the relevant sites I’m looking to access. Select the site and it directs me there and logs me in.”In other words: if you’re curious about getting more done on your Mac with just your keyboard, bbinder just might be a person to talk to.
  • Richard Gaywood, PhD, 1Password customer, and TUAW writer extraordinaire, also shared a smart idea that I’ve heard from other customers in the past: “Before my wife went into hospital last week with could-have-been-serious problems, she put her 1Password password in my 1Password. Just in case.”It’s better to be safe than sorry in unfortunate circumstances like this. Fortunately, Richard’s wife came home yesterday and I think it’s safe to say that, while this is a good idea, it’s also a good thing they didn’t have to get much use out of it.
  • Penelope Pitstop shared a great idea in our forum, too: “I use 1PW pronounceable random passwords for my security questions on any account that requires them and store them in the notes field along with the original questions — something Jeff already advocates on the Agile Blog. “I’m not going to lie, this is a great idea that we are indeed big fans of, and Penelope nails why: “It’s easier to provide them verbally if required and mitigates against social engineering attacks.”

So that’s it for now, I don’t want to drown you in too many awesome 1Password ideas from our customers all at once.

If you have your own creative use for 1Password or a great story to share about how you helped a friend, family member, or coworker discover it, please tell us on our Facebook Page or in this Agile forums thread! The best part (besides helping everyone get even more out of 1Password!) is that we’re going to send t-shirts to some of our favorite storytellers!

Thanks to everyone who has shared so far, and we’ll be back soon with more 1Password Stories.

1Password for Android Update!

Exciting news… 1Password for Android has been updated! It’s still free for the rest of beta period, so get it on your Android phone now!

As always, 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!

1Password for Android works as a 1Password Data Reader (meaning it’s read-only, you can’t add new items from your phone), and has been designed to complement 1Password for PC/Mac.

Installation is simple. Before you get started, though, we just want to remind you 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.

    Note: at the current time, 1Password for Android is only available through the Android Marketplace, which may or may not cover the country you reside in. The availability of the Android Marketplace will be changing in the near future, so stay tuned!

    Also note that 1Password for Android requires OS 2.1 or greater, and will not appear in the Marketplace for phones running an earlier version of the operating system.

  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

Note for existing 1Password for Android users

If you have a 1Password. agilekeychain in the root directory of your SD card, the application will find it automatically and assume that you want to use this local file. However, if you want to take advantage of Dropbox Integration, move this file to any subfolder on the SD card or delete it.In this case the application will ask for the Data File’s location and present you with two options: use locally stored file or synchronize with Dropbox. Refer to the information below on how to setup Dropbox Integration.

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

To sync using an SD Card:

  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 (top-level) 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.

SD Card Sync images

To sync using Dropbox:

If your data is already being synced via Dropbox on a desktop or laptop, you can simply log into your Dropbox account from 1Password for Android.

Dropbox Sync images

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!
