1Password 6 for Mac is here!

[Update] 1Password 6 is now available in the Mac App Store. *squee*

It’s a new year and we’re starting things off on a strong note with a great new update to 1Password for Mac: Version 6.0! This latest version of everyone’s favorite password manager is looking better than ever, and we couldn’t have done it without you. Your awesome feature requests, suggestions, bug reports, and usage scenarios really helped us decide what to include in this release.

All Vaults view

All VaultsMultiple vaults is one of my favourite features in 1Password. It keeps all of my information neatly organized and shared with the right people. But, with a great number of vaults comes greater opportunity for (dis)organization. And with 1Password for Teams, odds are you have a lot more vaults than you did before!

With the new All Vaults view, you can see all of your items in the main app and in 1Password mini without switching vaults. Do you have a family vault set up for your parents? How about that Teams vault that holds all the business social accounts? You probably have vaults that you need to keep for reference but that you don’t want cluttering up your everyday view. The All Vaults view is customizable so you can choose which vaults you see there.

Powered-Up Strong Password Generator

One of our most frequently requested features is here! 1Password 6 for Mac features a refined and simplified Strong Password Generator. If you use 1Password for iOS, you’ve already seen our fancy new wordlist password generator. Now you can take advantage of this feature on Mac as well. Choose the new Words option to create a password comprising random words chosen from a list approved by our Chief Defender Against the Dark Arts. Wordlist passwords are easy to remember and type, without sacrificing strength and security. If you prefer a jumble of letters, numbers, and symbols, the Characters option you know and love is still there for you.

iCloud sync

Surprise! Thanks to some pretty significant changes Apple made recently, we are now able to offer iCloud sync to customers who bought 1Password for Mac directly from the AgileBits Store. As you probably know, this was previously only available to Mac App Store customers, and we’re super excited to be able to offer it to everyone.

You might be wondering how we’re able to do this. You can read all the details in our blog post. If you’re a Mac app developer, you’ll want to read it too! We have something special just for you. :D

If you own the AgileBits Store version of 1Password for Mac and are excited to set up iCloud sync RIGHT NOW, our User Guide will help you.

    I am so excited that I can finally share this awesome new release with all of you.

    I know this isn’t a big stadium where I can ask the Mac team to stand up for a round of applause like at Apple keynotes, but I would still like to extend a hearty Congratulations to my awesome team for all their hard work in getting out this release!

    I’d let them go sleep now but they are too busy having fun in the forums waiting for your feedback :)

      Hi there,

      Thanks for being excited! We’re all having trouble sitting still because of all of the excitement around here.

      The update was propagating a little slowly, but you should be seeing the upgrade very soon if it hasn’t appeared already.

      Best wishes,
      Eva

    This is one of the few apps I have no hesitations recommending to people and actively push people to sign up for and you just made that easier! Awesome. I recently got my girlfriend, her parents, and my parents hooked up on this so shared vaults in an all vaults view on the mac is really a great feature.

    Can’t wait until the update pushes out to me!

      Hi Ricardo,

      1Password 6 is a free upgrade for any of our customers running 1Password 4 or 1Password 5. To date, the only upgrade we have charged for is the jump from 1Password 3 to 1Password 4. And that was because we completely rebuilt the app from the ground up with 1Password 4.

      However. ff you would like to update to 1Password 6, you will get an upgrade discount as an existing customer. Just go to our store at http://agilebits.com/store and click on the Upgrade button The 1Password 6 for Mac license. You will be prompted to enter your 1 Password 3 license code and then you will see the discounted prices you are eligible for.

      Thanks so much!
      -Eva

    Super excited here about the update from my existing v 5.4.3, however there does not appear to be any updates available (either via the “Check for Updates…” menu item or on the Agilebits website… Is this a timing issue?

      Hi Chris,

      The update is propagating more slowly than we had hoped, but it is definitely out there. Just give the app a little more time to pick up the update and you should be golden.

      Thanks,
      Eva

      I know one developer who once told us that the update had propagated faster than expected. But everyone thinks it’s a lie….

      Updates set to auto, I’ll have a nice surprise one of these days ;)

      Take care,

    In the release notes, it states:

    OPVault is now the default sync format when creating a new file using Dropbox or Folder sync.

    Should existing vaults be migrated to this format? Or recommendations?

      Hi Adam,

      Great question! Your data is secure in either format. But, that being said, if you are comfortable doing so, I would recommend migrating your existing vaults to OPVault. You will find instructions on the conversion here.

      Let us know if you have any questions about the migration.

      Take care,
      Eva

      Hi Nikolay,

      Sadly no. We have submitted it for review and we will hit the publish button just as soon as Apple gives us the green light.

      Stay tuned,
      Eva
