1Password 5.3 for iOS: The Extended Brainiac Edition is out!

This major, free update to 1Password for iOS is so awesome, we thought about pulling a Harry Potter and releasing it in two parts. But when Apple told us Daniel Radcliffe wasn’t available, and they didn’t even have his number in the first place, we just had to give it all to you at once.

A 400 percent better App Extension

1P iOS 5.3 App Extension CC Identities borderYou know how our App Extension can fill Logins into Safari, our own 1Browser, and hundreds of other apps with a single tap? Now it can also:

  • fill Identities
  • fill Credit Cards
  • create new Logins when you’re signing up for new services
  • show all Logins if none are found for the current app (App Extension only)

It’s all in the name of saving you even more time when logging in and now filling long forms and shopping carts.

A brand new Brain

We affectionately call 1Password’s under-the-hood tools and form-filling logic the “Brain,” and we gave it a huge upgrade in 5.3. It’s much smarter about matching websites and subdomains and fills forms even faster.

We need to talk

OPI 5.3 Message Center

There is so much great stuff going on with 1Password that we added a new Message Center to keep you in the know. It brings you 1Password news and tips right in our in-app Settings. Don’t worry, Push Notifications need not apply.

So, so much more

We added Large Type so you can view usernames and passwords in Jumbo Size, and we fixed a couple Zoom Mode bugs and a crash for iPhone 6 Plus users. Truly, there is a mountain of improvements you can check out in the full release notes.

Our free 1Password 5.3 for iOS update is now live in the App Store, so take it for a spin and let us know what you think on TwitterFacebook, and in our newly redesigned forums!

    I wish they’d fix the Safari extension for OS X. Have to disable then re-enable the extension in Preferences before using every time. Tech support has been unable to help.

      That should not be the case. It definitely isn’t for most people (I’ve never had to disable/reenable the extension to get it working). I presume you’ve contacted us already, based on what you wrote, but please feel free to follow up with us for further troubleshooting as that really isn’t the way 1Password is supposed to work on the Mac (or anywhere).

      There’s currently no way to delete the messages. We are looking into options for either that or a mark all as read, although I can’t make any promises this early on.

    In the update, the iOS version doesn’t autosubmit anymore and it won’t default to the favorites page when the app is launched. Other than those two items, I am really happy with the update.

      We’re looking into both of those issues. The default page one will be easier to fix, although I can’t make any promises at this point about either of them. The autosubmit feature had to be removed to make the new “Brain” work properly. We are looking into whether there will be a way we can add it back, but for now you will have to tap the login buttons manually.
