1Password 4.3 for iOS brings Wi-Fi Sync, custom browser agents, more

A number of our customers want to sync their 1Password vault between multiple devices, but remain in complete control of their data, keeping it within their local network and out of The Cloud. We took a big step towards that goal earlier this month with the release of 1Password 4 for Mac and, among over 90 new features, the triumphant and revamped return Wi-Fi Sync. Today we take another big step with 1Password 4.3 for iOS, a free major update that now supports Wi-Fi Sync, among a few other new perks.

Wi-Fi Sync

1P4iOS wifi sync buttonAs the name suggests, Wi-Fi Sync lets you sync your 1Password data between multiple devices on the same Wi-Fi network, leaving The Cloud entirely out of the process. We have detailed step-by-step instructions for setting it up between a Mac and iOS device, but in short: go to the new Window > Wi-Fi Sync option in 1Password 4 for Mac, and it will walk you through a couple of simple steps to get going.

More Goodies

In addition to Wi-Fi Sync, 1Password 4.3 for iOS now lets you change the browser agent of our built-in 1Browser to Safari for iPhone, iPad, and Mac, as well as Firefox and Chrome. We also have better support for iOS 7, though our full iOS 7 refresh is coming in a future, free update.

There’s plenty more in 1Password 4.3 for iOS, so check it out in the App Store and leave us a great review so we can bring you more!

1Password 4.2.2 for iOS is out with improvements for iOS 7, 1Browser, and VoiceOver

1Password 4 for iOS iconWe just released a small update to 1Password for iOS with some handy improvements. It is available now in the App Store.

First, if you’re one of those intrepid early adopters I mentioned, we added some enhancements while using 1Password on Apple’s iOS 7 developer beta. We also have improved VoiceOver support for searching and a crash fix when scrolling tabs in 1Browser, the awesome new browser we built into 1Password 4 so you can log into websites, checkout while shopping, and fill long registration forms with a single tap.

As I mentioned, 1Password 4.2.2 is available now in the App Store. If you have a spare second, please give us a great rating, a Like, or even a review in the store—they really do help, and we really will see it and think even more highly of you as a smashing individual.

1Password 4.2 for iOS gets huge update to browser, sharing features

Sometimes there’s an app. I won’t say hero, because what’s a hero?

But sometimes, there’s an app. And I’m talkin’ about 1Password for iOS here. It’s the app for our time and place, and we just gave it a huge, free 4.2 update.

 

1Browser

How huge is this update? Well, for starters, we added our Strong Password Generator to the 1Browser on iPad (yes, the all-new Web Mode is now the much snappier and pun-ier “1Browser”). Go & Fill Bookmarks are now in 1Browser on iPad too, so you don’t have to switch back to Vault Mode to find a Login to open and fill automatically. We also added the option to AutoSubmit after using AutoFill for a Login.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is yes: the Strong Password Generator and Go & Fill are on their way to 1Browser on iPhone in a future update.

If you’re using 1Browser as, well, your one browser more often these days, you may be pleased to hear that if 1Password sees a URL in the clipboard, it’ll prompt you to open it in 1Browser. There are plenty more 1Browser goodies where those came from, so be sure to check the full changelog below.

Sharing

Yeah, that’s right. You asked, we answered. You can now share 1Password items from Vault Mode via Messages and email in either an obfuscated format or plain text. Your lucky recipient will see an “Add to 1Password” link, and I recommend they tap it; makes the whole process pretty easy.

By the way, here’s a ProTip about sharing: if you use the obfuscated option to share items, the item’s ID is included. This means that, if you share an item and your recipient makes an update—such as add to a Secure Note or update a Login’s password—then shares it back to you, 1Password will actually update your current copy of the item with the changes.

Just be sure to share with care. Using the obfuscated option means anyone with a copy of 1Password for iOS could add it to their library (since we’re using a shared key for these items, it could also be reverse engineered). Make sure you trust your recipient(s) to keep those messages private and, even better, delete them as soon as they’re done.

Search

Search in 1Password usually focuses on item titles. Now we also search URLs for Login items. But if you don’t find what you need on the first pass, you will now see a button to expand search results to all fields.

But wait, there’s more

Honestly, you don’t even need to wait till 3’oclock. Go get the 1Password for iOS update in the App Store right now.
