I can’t believe it’s already March and Daylight Saving Time is almost upon us again! For many of us, this means a slightly darker morning commute, but also more daylight to play in at night. Whether you’re eagerly anticipating the clocks springing forward or already rueing the change, today’s update to 1Password for iOS will make things just a bit brighter for you. Besides, the new improvements will save you so much time, you won’t even miss that hour. :)
Choose a favorite (vault, that is)
Between work, my family, and my podcasting passion, there’s a lot of information I want to securely share with other people. 1Password for Teams and 1Password Families have made this so simple for me, but now I have a lot of vaults! When I use 1Password on my phone, I’m generally filling in a credit card number or logging in to an app, so I almost always want to find items in my personal vault.
Now I can instruct 1Password to always open my personal vault at launch. To specify which vault you’d like 1Password to show when you launch the app, go to the Settings screen, then tap Vaults > Always Open To.
Shine a Spotlight on it
I often use Spotlight to find apps and launch them, and I love that I can also use it to find items in 1Password. If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy the tweaks we made to speed up Spotlight search. We also taught it how to read accented characters better, so typing “creme brulee” will now find your amazing Secure Note all about crème brûlée.
Follow your ears
In this digital age, it’s important for everyone to use a good password manager. That’s why we put a lot of time into making sure VoiceOver support works well with some of our newfangled features. We paid special attention to the vault picker and QR codes used in 1Password for Teams and Families.
I’ve hit some of the highlights here, but this update features even more improvements. If you’d like to read all of the juicy details, check out our full release notes!
