We can’t share the full list of developers yet (we just cracked 100!). But we can show you nearly 20 apps that are already working on integrating 1Password’s iOS 8 App Extension for fast, one-tap logging in and even updating your passwords!

Plus, our 1Password update for iOS 8 will be free to existing customers! Since you can get 1Password for iOS for just $9.99, you can start saving time and get secure online right now.

What the 1Password App Extension can do for you

Since the announcement, our mad-scientist developers have kept working in their secret laboratory to add even more super-hero powers to this powerful extension. Developers, check out our GitHub project to add 1Password integration to your own apps!

Here’s the rundown of the skills we’ve added to the extension so far:

  • Fill Logins, Credit Cards, and Identities into Safari
  • Fill Logins into other third party apps (including web browsers) that add support for it
  • Generate strong, unique passwords and create new Logins during a signup process
  • Update a Login’s password if you change it in an app

Filling with your approval: On 1Password’s App Extension and iOS 8 security

App ExtensioniOS 8 has an incredible feature coming called App Extensions, and we’re thrilled to say we have a 1Password extension ready for developers to use right in their apps! In apps that gain support for our extension, you will no longer have to copy and paste passwords from 1Password. Yes, it really is a game changer, and you can see it in action for yourself.

Naturally, this new-fangled way for apps to interact in iOS 8 is leading people to ask how we do this in a secure manner:

  • Are we really letting third-party apps poke around inside of your 1Password data?
    • Answer: No, that is not how extensions work.
  • Can these third party apps ask 1Password for your PayPal password?
    • Answer: Well, they can ask, but you decide if they should get what they ask for.
  • Can they trick you into entering your 1Password Master Password into something that isn’t 1Password?
    • Answer: The very same mechanisms that prevent that today apply to application extensions.

TL;DR

I will elaborate on all of this below. But to summarize, all of my points and these safeguards in both iOS extensions and 1Password are built on an important design principle: Nothing happens without your explicit action.

Yep, it’s this awesome.

How easy is it for third-party apps to get in on this one-tap Login goodness? Extremely! Developers: check out our 1Password App Extension on GitHub with documentation and sample code.
