1Password 5.4 for iOS isn’t all about Apple Watch. Our quartermasters have made some other refinements to the app as well. Based on your feedback, the Message Center now has a button to mark everything as read. We also added a toggle to remove the unread badge from the settings tab. We hope you enjoy the tips we’re sharing with you via the Message Center, but this improvement will ensure it’s not distracting you during important covert missions.

1Password’s memorization skills have been fine-tuned, and it will now remember whether you were viewing Favorites or Categories and take you back there when you reopen the app.

With the 5.4 update for 1Password for iOS, quickly accessing your secure information is easier than ever, whether on your wrist, or in your pocket.

    Well that is actually very sad. There’s the pebble out there for over 2 years now and there’s no app for that. Neither is there for Android Wear watches (don’t have one but anyways). And then, the Apple watch is out for like a week and there’s an 1password update which brings all the cool features to the watch.
    That’s just not a very good move, 1password team!!!

      Considering the security that’s built into the Apple Watch and the accompanying API, and how little development effort is required to add watch capabilities to an iOS app, and how popular the Apple Watch is, I understand why they’re updating for Apple Watch and not for Pebble.

      It’s almost as if it’s a minor thing to add to an existing iOS app, isn’t it? I mean, gosh.

      It’s awesome to see how passionate you are about your Pebble, Robert! It’s great to see you supporting them and I hope they continue to innovate and grow their platform. There’s a lot in the Apple Watch SDK that we rely on and it will be fantastic when the other watch platforms provide similar functionality.

      While we’re focusing on Apple Watch right now, we’ll certainly keep an eye on Android Wear to see what possibilities it may hold for the future (although, as always, we can’t make any promises at this time).

    I’m interested to see how this works in practice. I’d assume you have to do an unlock on your phone to then allow the watch to have access to your passwords but does it work on a time basis or can you detect if the watch is taken off? My assumption on the best of security vs convenience would be that it works similar to Apple Pay in that you unlock the keychain via the iPhone app and then you can have access to it so long as the watch remains on your wrist…

      “Save my Safeway password as: FOODIE” — he yells at the supermarket.

      I’m not sure that voice is a very secure way to create and store passwords :) though I’m mostly just taking an opportunity to poke fun at the idea of yelling passwords in public.

    • Andrew Costen
      Andrew Costen says:

      Yeah, probably best not to speak your passwords in public. Plus, a more secure password probably couldn’t be spoken anyway. Still a cool idea though. :)

    In the current app update explanation: “. . . so you can solve crimes and save your uncle just like Penny.”. Could this possibly be a reference to “Sky King?”

    The gym example makes me want a location-based short list, so “Hey Siri, launch One Password” will bring up my combination on the Watch by the time I get into the locker room.

      It’s not something we’ve got in the app now, but if it turns out to be possible, we’ll certainly consider it.
