You know what they say. “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can teach password managers new things.” I don’t know about old dogs, but 1Password has definitely learned some new tricks over the years. There have been dozens of new versions, hundreds of betas, and approximately a gazillion improvements! That’s a lot of changes, and we’re not about to stop now. Welcome to 1Password 6.2 for Mac: The New Tricks Edition.
A bigger brain
One of the most magical things about 1Password is the handy-dandy browser extension, which automatically saves your passwords. It’s also the way 1Password knows how to fill in your information on sites asking for your shipping information or credit card number.
The extension is powered by what we call the brain, and boy has it been doing its homework lately. It studied numerous websites, drank some ginseng-infused green tea, and now is ready to fill your information on any website you throw at it. When you save a new Login, the brain will also take a stab at filling in a good title for you.
We’ve made 1Password a lot more versatile and accessible in recent months. We’ve had beautiful updates to 1Password for Android, iOS, and Mac. We announced 1Password for Teams and 1Password Families. We also have 1Password beta for Windows 10 in the Windows Store. This is the best time for you, your businesses, and your loved ones to join our 1Password family.
We wanted to make switching to 1Password a breeze, so we took another look to make sure importing data was simple. If you’re joining us from another app, jump right in—the water’s fine and the sailing’s smooth!
The whole bag o’ tricks
These are the two big new features available in 1Password for Mac, but that’s not all we have for you! This release features dozens of other improvements. We’ve made 1Password mini faster and play better with multiple active Chrome profiles. Plus, you can now restore existing data from iCloud when you’re setting up 1Password for Mac. If you’d like to learn about all of the changes in this update, take a gander at our full release notes.
