[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
Multiple 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.
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.
