1Password Power Tip [Mac]: Create a 1Click Bookmark

Know what’s fast? Typing in a URL, then hitting Command-\ to automatically fill your 1Password Login and randomized password to get on with what you’re doing. Know what’s even faster? Clicking a single bookmark to have all that work done for you.

Nerd blogger Brett Kelly, productive podcast Back to Work, TUAW, and Lifehacker have recently mentioned one of our best “guy-behind-the-guy” features in 1Password for Mac, one that is super handy but probably doesn’t get enough of the credit it deserves: 1Password’s “1Click Bookmark.”

Long story short: you can add a button for any site to your browser toolbar that—in one fell swoop click—both opens a website and logs you into it. How do you attain such 1Password awesomeness? Simple:

  1. Find a Login in the main 1Password app that you want to access quickly
  2. Drag it from 1Password to the bookmarks bar of any browser we make an extension for

It’s. that. simple.

From now on, you can click your awesome new 1Click Bookmark (or bookmarks—create as many as you want!) to open its site in the current tab and login right away  (though if the 1Password extension is locked, you’ll need to enter your Master Password). This is especially handy if you have multiple Logins for a site, because the bookmark you create calls on the specific Login that you dragged from 1Password.
