I don’t get to pull ‘chock’ off the shelf very often, but this is a special occasion. 1Password 4.2 for Windows is here, and it’s a free update with all sorts of new goodies to help you work and play better.
Check out the greatest hits in this release:
- new users get a much better experience
- You can use the View menu to hide the Wallet and Accounts groups from the sidebar
- Wi-Fi Sync is now clearer about what it’s up to
- The password strength meter is much strength-ier
- We added Secure Desktop buttons to the Change Password window
- The Auto-Save dialog now allows adding tags
- We improved how we log into non-web-browser apps
- Added support for logging into SAP
- Our Internet Explorer extension now catches and prompts to save changed passwords
Oh, and new keyboard shortcuts are in the house:
- Ctrl+E – Edit item
- Ctrl+S – Save item
- Ctrl+1 – Ctrl+9 – Switch between vaults
These join a laundry list of improvements our Windows team has been making lately, as well as some upcoming surprises they have in store. Auto-Type working with Skype and OneDrive, one-time passwords, the option to lock 1Password when your browser is closed, and better subdomain matching all make cameos on our extensive release notes.
1Password 4.2 for Windows is available now as a free update for existing owners (Help > Check for new version), or you can take a new copy for a spin from our downloads page.
