Administrators: Get to know 1Password Teams

Hey, guys! It’s your buddy Khad from AgileBits. I’m not a system administrator, but I play one on YouTube. If your friends need a password manager, they’ll get just what the doctor ordered with 1Password. For your colleagues and team, you need the admin tools in 1Password Teams. For the challenges admins have. With the tools admins need.

The good news is that you don’t need a dedicated IT department to make the most of 1Password Teams. Everything you need to help manage your team – and let your team manage themselves – is built right in.

The tools you need

Using 1Password with a team requires more power and flexibility than using it at home or with your family. That’s why we designed 1Password Teams specifically with the needs of administrators in mind. In fact, it’s so easy to use, I’m starting to believe I really am an administrator.

Every team has different needs, so everything is completely customizable. But I haven’t met an administrator yet who doesn’t value efficiency. To help with that, we created a dedicated section for 1Password Teams on our support site where you can find everything you need in one place. Learn how to:

If you prefer a video tour, you’re in luck. I’ll show you how to:

  • add vaults
  • manage team members
  • create and manage groups
  • recover accounts
  • and more

In less than 10 minutes, you’ll have a team that functions like a well-oiled machine. (Well, I can’t stop Rick from stealing Laura’s sandwiches from the office fridge, but they’ll both always have access to all the passwords they need.)

The support you deserve

You can continue to learn at your own pace with the tutorials on 1Password Support and the 1Password Teams videos on YouTube. Or you can reach out to talk with us directly.

Whether you’re already a customer or are curious about getting started, if you have any questions or need assistance with a custom solution get in touch. Our dedicated support team is always here to help your team.

1Password X: A look at the future of 1Password in the browser

“Wouldn’t it be cool if 1Password could do X?” is a question we often ask ourselves. The values for X are always changing, but some ideas come up again and again. Wouldn’t it be cool if…

  • When you log in to a site, 1Password is right there on the page ready to fill?
  • You could use 1Password without downloading the app?
  • Linux users and Chrome OS users could join in on the fun?

Now 1Password can do all these and more. We call it 1Password X, and it’s our brand new, full-featured experience that runs entirely in your browser.

It’s super easy to set up, deploy, and use. It works everywhere Chrome works, including Linux and Chrome OS. And it’s a re-imagination of how 1Password works on the web.

X is for extension

Before we jump in, I want to address one thing you may be thinking: our X is a letter, not a version number. Our X is a hat tip to one of the most beloved features of 1Password, namely our 1Password extension.

The extension is what allows us to have the little 1Password icon in your browser toolbar. I call it our bread and butter, and I couldn’t live without it. 😊

1Password X builds on this experience and takes it to the next level. The most visible change you just saw above – your logins are now available directly within the webpage you are viewing!

It’s smart, too. 1Password anticipates what you need and shows you the options that are most relevant to your current task. If you are signing up for a new site, 1Password suggests a generated password for you right then and there.

You can also save your new login, name it, and pick which vault to store it in.

X is for Linux

One of the most popular requests of all time has been Linux support. In fact, the forum thread asking for Linux has over 75,000 views. That’s a lot of cold penguins. 🙂

Because 1Password X is a Chrome extension, it works everywhere Chrome is available, including Linux. In fact, we initially shared 1Password X exclusively with Linux users as we wanted to make sure we nailed it.

Tim, our chief sysadmin and “beardless keeper of keys and grounds” is a hardcore Linux evangelist who, until now, has had no other choice than to use Wine to run 1Password. Tim has been our toughest critic over the years for our lack of Linux support, and so far he’s been thrilled.

There’s still lots of work to do, but we have thousands of happy Linux users already enjoying 1Password X. And we can’t wait to invite all of the other penguins in out of the cold! 😘

X is for exceedingly powerful

1Password X has all of the power of a full-featured app. And because it connects directly to your 1Password account, everything you expect from 1Password is there – your vaults, your items, and all their details.

And we’ve sprinkled in some additional features to absolutely delight you:

  • Keyboard navigation: We know this is a big one for power users, so we made sure everything can be done without lifting your fingers from the keyboard.
  • Smart search: Just start typing to find exactly what you need – ideal for when you have multiple logins for a site.
  • Perfect memory: 1Password remembers what you were doing last, whether you were in the middle of a search or looking at an item’s details.
  • One-time password filling: Your two-factor authentication codes are filled just like usernames and passwords.
  • Authentication dialog filling: If you ever see one those old-school HTTP authentication prompts, rest assured that 1Password can fill them.

My personal favourite has to be our amazing new search – I just start typing and my matching items appear automatically. I love it so much that filling one-time passwords had to take second factor place. It was close, though – only 30 seconds behind! 😃

X is for extra easy setup

Historically, we’ve needed to teach people how to first install and set up the app, and then take them out of the app to install the extension. With 1Password X, they’re one and the same. Just install it, enter your Master Password, and you’re in.

Because there’s no need to install a separate desktop app, deployment within team environments is as simple as can be. And by using multiple Chrome profiles, your team members can share the same machine while having access to their own 1Password data.

1Password X can even be installed on Chrome OS, which makes me super excited as now I can finally buy one of those lovely new Pixelbooks. 🤘

X is for Excelsior!

1Password X is a radical new way of using 1Password, but it’s not (yet) for everyone. It’s still in its early stages so some features are not yet available. For example, it’s not yet possible to customize generated passwords or use browsers like Safari, Firefox, and Edge.

But it is an exciting new way to use 1Password on the web, and for me, that outweighs any drawbacks. I’ve been using 1Password X exclusively for the last 6 months, and I couldn’t be happier.

So is 1Password X for you? If you’re running Linux or Chrome OS, you should jump right in. Or if you’re adventurous and enjoy the thrill of discovering new things while being on the cutting edge, then 1Password X is for you – it runs fine alongside the 1Password apps and extension you already use.

1Password X was designed for our hosted 1Password service and connects directly to your account. It is available in English, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish and can be installed from the Chrome Web Store:

Install 1Password X

I hope you’re as excited about 1Password X as I am! Learn how to get started with 1Password X and join the discussion in the 1Password Support forum to let us know what you think! ❤️

Now let’s all go join Harold in that rocket ship and explore what’s possible! 😃 🚀

1Password 7 for iOS: Efficiency Abounds

Hello and happy November, everyone! We’ve long anticipated this day here at AgileBits. After months of hard work, 1Password 7 for iOS is now available on iOS 11.

The very first step in the journey that brought us to this point was taken back in June, shortly after the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference. Before a single line of code was written, before a single new screen was designed, we set a single goal for this update: efficiency. Along the way, we also added a few more features, like support for iPhone X and Face ID, and we’re excited to finally share it all with you.

As our release notes say, this is the greatest version of 1Password for iOS we have ever shipped, so let’s dive in, shall we?

iPhone X and Face ID

On September 12th, like many of you, everyone here at AgileBits was glued to their screens watching Apple’s keynote from the beautiful Steve Jobs Theater at the new Apple Park campus. The announcement of iPhone X was already exciting, but the introduction of Face ID was like Christmas for us. We knew right away that we’d move heaven and earth to be there on launch day with Face ID support.

We began working immediately to make sure that 1Password worked perfectly on iPhone X. Apple was smart and made Face ID work wherever Touch ID already does, so technically we didn’t need to do anything. But that’s not the way we roll.

We completely optimized the lock screen for Face ID. Matt Davey, who led the design effort, blew the doors off with this one. 🙂

My iPhone X is set to arrive tomorrow, and I can’t wait to install 1Password and step into the future.

Quick Copy

In a perfect world, every developer would be as awesome as these folks and take five minutes to add support for 1Password to their app. But because we don’t live in a perfect world, signing in to another app sometimes used to mean you needed to:

  1. Open 1Password.
  2. Find the Login you need.
  3. Copy your username.
  4. Switch back to the app where you need it.
  5. Paste your username.
  6. Switch back to 1Password.
  7. Copy your password.
  8. Switch back to the app where you need it.
  9. Paste the password.

And if you needed the one-time password for that app, there were four more steps after that. Yeesh!

In 1Password 7, copying is now done automatically. After you copy your username and paste it in another app, switching back to 1Password will automatically copy your password. And it’s the same with one-time passwords. Switch back one more time, and they’re copied automatically, too.

You can learn more about Quick Copy on our lovely support site.

Favorites

There’s no faster way to access an item than by adding it as a favorite. At least, that’s what we used to think. In 1Password 7, I’m happy to say that we’ve done better. Way better.

Now, when you tap an item in Favorites, you’ll see all the details you want to copy in a beautiful array of bubbles. Simply tap on any one of the bubbles to copy its value to the clipboard. Not only that, but items on the Favorites list participate in Quick Copy as well!

The Key to a Great App

iOS has wonderful support for external keyboards, and I’m happy to report that now 1Password does, too. If you’re one of our keyboard warriors, make sure you give it a try. 1Password 7 includes keyboard shortcuts for searching, switching tabs, opening and filling items, and more.

Go Speed Racer

Big, new features are awesome, but we didn’t stop there. We dug deep to unearth some truly fantastic perfomance increases for this update as well. 1Password now unlocks 33% faster and has seen a 400% increase in stability throughout. We also made some improvements to our password generator to make it much more responsive and easier to use.

Wrapping It Up In a Pretty Package

No major update would be complete without a fresh coat of paint on the user interface. 1Password 7 sports a beautiful new icon with a gorgeous gradient on the lock ring. That color scheme carries through to the lock screen where, if you let it sit for a few seconds, you’ll notice a gentle “happiness vortex” animation take place as the colors go for a spin.

Many of you use the 1Password extension to sign in to websites directly in Safari or other third-party apps. The next time you do, you’ll see the extension received a fantastic visual update as well!

We’ve also overhauled the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen with some new iconography and a better layout. Coupled with the aforementioned new look for Favorites, our beloved iOS app has never looked better.

And the Hits Keep Coming

Check out the 1Password for iOS release notes for a full account of everything we’ve crammed into 1Password 7, but I wanted to close out with a few more of my top picks:

  • If you register a new fingerprint with Touch ID, 1Password will require your Master Password the next time you open it.
  • You can now delete multiple items at once. Swipe down from the top of an item list, select the items you want to remove, then tap Delete.
  • Recently used items appear in Favorites for easy access.
  • Saving a new Login now informs you that the password for that Login has been copied to the clipboard.
  • An advanced security setting allows you to use a PIN code to unlock 1Password, even on devices that support Touch ID or Face ID.

Whew! Are you still with me? If so, well done! If you haven’t already done so, go download 1Password 7 now and tell us what your favorite new feature is.

Until next time!

Integrate 1Password into your Android apps

Account sign-up and sign-in is a critical piece of your app, but it’s also the part that is most likely to create friction for new users. It might be necessary for your app to collect information such as an email address and password, but let’s face it, those details are rather tedious to type out.

Here’s something that happens far more often than it should. I’m out with a friend and they’ve just told me about this fantastic new app. I get fired up and download it to my phone, only to be confronted with a wall of text fields. I need to register for a new account before I can continue, and that seems like a lot of work. So I tell myself that I’ll do it when I get home and of course, I forget all about it. By the time I look at the app again, I’ve lost that initial excitement and more often than not, I just delete the app.

If I do give the app another chance, I still need to go through the hassle of creating a new account. Of course, I have 1Password to help me here, but I still need to switch between apps, copying and pasting the values as I go. Wouldn’t it be so much better if the app could just ask 1Password to create my credentials and then sign me in?

I’m very happy to say that this is no longer just wishful thinking! We’ve been working closely with Google and other leading password managers on a protocol for Android called OpenYOLO. This new protocol provides the kind of seamless integration that would have saved me so much of the frustration above. The best part is that implementing the protocol is simple, and you can get started on integrating it into your Android app today!

Getting started with OpenYOLO


You Only Login Once (YOLO) is Google’s internal code name for their Smart Lock for Passwords API on Android. OpenYOLO is its open-source successor that enables client apps to communicate directly with supported providers like 1Password. Using OpenYOLO, your app can ask 1Password to create, save, retrieve, or delete its user credentials.

It’s almost effortless to integrate 1Password with your app using OpenYOLO! Let me show you just how easy it is to get started…

Import the library

Add this line to your app’s build.gradle file to import the OpenYOLO API:

dependencies {
    compile 'org.openyolo:openyolo-api:0.3.1'
}

Get the client

You’ll need an instance of CredentialClient in order to interact with OpenYOLO. It provides convenience methods for sending requests and retrieving responses.

mCredentialClient = CredentialClient.getInstance(this);

Prepare the request

For each operation, your app needs to prepare a request and retrieve an Intent for handling it. You can then hand off the request to OpenYOLO with startActivityForResult(). OpenYOLO will take the request and determine if there are any credential providers like 1Password available to handle it. If multiple providers are available, the user will be prompted to select which one to use to complete the request.

Handle the response

Once the chosen provider has completed the request, a response will be returned to your app in onActivityResult(). You can use CredentialClient to pull the relevant information from the response.

Working with 1Password to simplify users’ experiences

Signing up new users

To avoid another story like mine above, you can assist users with new account registration in your app. Before prompting me to manually enter my email address and choose a unique password, your app can make a request to have those credentials generated.

HintRetrieveRequest request = HintRetrieveRequest.fromAuthMethods(AuthenticationMethods.EMAIL);

Intent hintIntent = mCredentialClient.getHintRetrieveIntent(request);

startActivityForResult(hintIntent, HINT_REQUEST_CODE);

In my case, 1Password will prompt me to confirm that I want to create new credentials and OpenYOLO will return details to your app’s onActivityResult().

if (requestCode == HINT_REQUEST_CODE) {
    HintRetrieveResult result = mCredentialClient.getHintRetrieveResult(data);

    if (result.isSuccessful()) {
        Hint hint = mCredentialClient.getHintRetrieveResult(data).getHint();

        signUpUser(hint.getIdentifier(), hint.getGeneratedPassword());
    }
}

Saving user credentials

My account details are all filled in, and I’m ready to start exploring the app, but of course I want to make sure those new account details are stored in 1Password. This will come in handy the next time I need to sign in to your app. You can help here too with a simple save request to OpenYOLO.

Credential credential = new Credential.Builder(mEmail, AuthenticationMethods.EMAIL,
AuthenticationDomain.getSelfAuthDomain(this))
.setPassword(mPassword)
.build();

Intent saveIntent = mCredentialClient.getSaveIntent(CredentialSaveRequest.fromCredential(credential));

startActivityForResult(saveIntent, SAVE_REQUEST_CODE);

Now I am ready to go! Only a couple of seconds after downloading your app, I am all signed up for an account and more importantly, I can begin using it!

Signing in with existing credentials

Okay, now the fun part! My brand new and shiny Pixel 2 XL arrives and I download all of my favourite apps to it. I still need to sign in to my apps, but you’ve gone and saved me all the hassle by once again using OpenYOLO.

CredentialRetrieveRequest request = CredentialRetrieveRequest.fromAuthMethods(AuthenticationMethods.EMAIL);

Intent retrieveIntent = mCredentialClient.getCredentialRetrieveIntent(request);

startActivityForResult(retrieveIntent, RETRIEVE_REQUEST_CODE);

In response to this request, 1Password will prompt me to select my sign-in credentials and OpenYOLO will return them to your app in onActivityResult():

if (requestCode == RETRIEVE_REQUEST_CODE) {
    CredentialRetrieveResult result = mCredentialClient.getCredentialRetrieveResult(data);

    if (result.isSuccessful()) {
        Credential credential = mCredentialClient.getCredentialRetrieveResult(data).getCredential();

        signInUser(credential.getIdentifier(), credential.getPassword());
    }
}

Less noise, more fun!

That’s it! With a few changes to your code, your app now integrates with 1Password using OpenYOLO. This decreases noise from your app and more importantly saves your users time and effort so that they can get to the really important part – using your app.

If a solution like this is in place the next time my buddy gets me to try out your app, I would be able to create an account with a few taps, and they would have the opportunity to show me why they love the app!

DroidCon London 2017

At DroidCon London today, Google announced that OpenYOLO is now ready for developers like yourself to leverage its powers and bring it into the hands of users. If you are also attending the conference, send a wave at my colleague, Michael Verde! He will be available for a hands-on session to help integrate OpenYOLO into your apps.

Reach out to us

For further details on integrating OpenYOLO into your Android app, take a look through the open-source project available on Github. The repository also includes a handful of sample apps to help with development. If you’re curious about the protocol itself, you can read all about it in the OpenYOLO for Android specification.

If you have any questions, feedback or want to let us know that your Android app supports integration with 1Password through OpenYOLO, please reach out to us at support+android@agilebits.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

1Password living on the [Microsoft] Edge

I’ve long been curious about Microsoft Edge. It’s fast, light-weight, and much more secure than the Internet Explorer of my childhood. It had everything you look for in a browser … except 1Password support. Today that changes!

Thanks to the hard work of the Microsoft Edge and Windows Store teams, along with our own Windows team, I’m excited to announce that 1Password now has a lovely new home right on your Microsoft Edge toolbar. 🎉

Boldly go where no Login item has gone before

To bring your items with you to explore Microsoft Edge, first make sure you have 1Password 6.7 or later installed and set up. Then, head to the Windows Store and grab the 1Password extension. Open Microsoft Edge, enable the 1Password extension, and enjoy saving new Login items, opening and filling in Microsoft Edge from 1Password mini, filling addresses and credit card details, and easy access to the Strong Password Generator, just like you’ve come to know and love. If you’re still using an older version of 1Password, you can follow this handy guide to migrate your existing data to the latest version of 1Password to get ready to seek out new frontiers in Microsoft’s latest browser.

Hello dark mode, my old friend

As you’re working your own 1Password magic in Microsoft Edge, don’t forget to check out my favorite feature: its super-sleek dark mode. I love how it turns your 1Password extension icon into a lovely point of light on your toolbar and it’s perfect for late-night browsing.  Let the stars next to your favorites light up Microsoft Edge and help guide you to your most loved websites at the click of a Login item. Of course, if a different vision has been planted in your brain, the extension icon looks right at home in light mode too. 😉

To the Edge and beyond!

As stoked as we are about 1Password coming to Microsoft Edge, this is only the beginning and some finishing touches are coming in future releases. Support for keyboard shortcuts to fill logins and some tweaks to how mini lets you know you’re filling in Edge are included with the latest 1Password 6 for Windows beta. Additional improvements for filling on certain sites will also be addressed down the road.

Currently, the 1Password extension in Microsoft Edge requires 1Password 6.7 for Windows or later and a 1Password membership. We will be expanding Edge availability in future releases but if you’d like to enjoy using Edge sooner than later, now is a great time to give a 1Password membership a try. In addition to early access, there are many other benefits and it’s free for 30 days!

I hope you enjoy saving and filling in Microsoft Edge and, as always, we love seeing your feedback in our support forum. 😊

Face it, The iPhone X Looks Amazing

Wow, what an incredible Apple event today! As you may have guessed the entire team here at AgileBits cozied up to their computers, iPads, Apple TVs, and iPhones to watch as the good folks at Apple took to the stage in the newly minted Steve Jobs Theater and proceeded to bring the house down. A new Apple Watch, a brand new 4K Apple TV, a new iPhone 8, the iPhone X! The hits just kept coming.

As blown away as we were by today’s product announcements we were even more blown away by our inclusion in the festivities. To see Phil Schiller on stage showing 1Password on the new iPhone X was magical. In case you missed it, here’s a screen grab we captured for posterity:

We truly can’t wait to get these new phones in our hands and into the hands of our customers. 1Password will be there on November 3rd with the new iPhone X and full support for Face ID.

It’s obvious what our favorite part of today’s announcements was, how about you? Sound off in the comments below and let’s nerd out together about this super cool new future.

Announcing the 1Password command-line tool public beta

Here at AgileBits, we’ve been working hard over the last few months to bring power users, developers, and administrators more powerful ways to interact with 1Password. We’re proud to announce that we have something that fits the bill. It’s called the 1Password command-line tool, and we can’t wait to see what you build with it. Let me take this opportunity to walk you through the exciting potential.

Introducing op

1Password apps are available on just about every platform, but they’ve always had the same dependency: a graphical interface. Now all of 1Password is available with just two characters: op.

The 1Password command-line tool makes your 1Password account accessible entirely from the command line. A simple op signin will securely authenticate you with the 1Password service and give you access to a wide range of capabilities:

Getting usernames and passwords from items:

> op get item OpenProxy | jq '.details.fields[] | select(.designation=="password").value'
“genuine-adopt-pencil-coaster”

Creating new items and vaults:

> op create item login $(cat aws.json | op encode) --title="AWS"
{“uuid”:”5hinhvejl7wtmbeorfts7ho3di”,”vaultUuid”:”i5imjpvdivbsxo56m2ap2n66gy”}

> op create vault devops
{“uuid”:”ny5khay7t3lmhrp4pjsxl4w34q”}

Working with documents:

> op create document ./devops.pdf --vault=devops --tags=architecture
{“uuid”:”i3rsiwjfh7aryvbu5odr4uleki”,”vaultUuid”:”ny5khay7t3lmhrp4pjsxl4w34q”}

If you’re a team administrator, you can also manage other users and shared vaults — all without leaving your terminal:

> op suspend john@acmecorp.com

One of the most frequent requests we receive from 1Password Teams customers is the ability to export the Activity Log. With the Pro plan, op list events makes it easy to ingest activity data into the application of your choosing. Be it Splunk, Kibana, Papertrail, or your own tool, op outputs JSON, so it’s simple to work with.

But we didn’t just build the tool to solve specific requests. It’s flexible enough to handle use cases we haven’t even thought of. The possibilities are endless, and we know you’ll come up with something amazing.

🎶 Rock, robot rock (solid) 🎶

The command structure is similar to tools you already use, providing easy integration with your workflow. Now automated systems can have access to secure credentials without ever storing them in plaintext. Here at AgileBits, for example, we’ve been using op for the last few months as part of our automated build systems. It’s been super useful for fetching secure keys and tokens required for building and deploying 1Password. After a secure op signin, we have a script that fetches the appropriate signing key from a shared vault and automatically signs new builds.

The tool was written from the ground up with the battle-tested Go programming language, the very same we used to build the 1Password service itself. As with every 1Password client, all encryption and decryption is done on your machine locally, ensuring the highest level of security best practices you’ve come to expect from the entire family of 1Password apps.

Get yo’ *NIX on

Our dreams of late have been filled with penguins. Two weeks ago we shared a treat with Linux users, and this week it becomes a feast. You might have already tried 1Password for Linux and Chrome OS, but we know what really makes developers salivate: a CLI. You can download op for macOS, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD on i386, ARM, and AMD64 architectures. Oh, and our Windows friends can play too!

What’s next?

If you’re as excited as we are about this, here’s everything you need to get started:

We highly value the thoughts of people using the beta in the real world, so we can continue improving the tool for you. As we work toward a stable release and eventually open source, please bear in mind that there may be breaking changes down the line, but we’re more than happy to work with you to resolve any issues. We look forward to working together to create some truly useful and powerful tools, and we can’t do it without you.

Now let’s get ready to 🎶 pipe it, grep it, cat it, sed it 🎶

1Password 6.6 for Android: Crunchy outer cookie, velvety smooth filling

While the solar eclipse was happening last Monday, another dramatic event involving a dark, disc-shaped object was also taking place in New York. Google announced the release of the next version of Android and revealed that it is named after the best-selling cookie in the world. Like its namesake, Android Oreo is equal parts crunchy and sweet. On the crunchy side, it delivers enhanced performance, better battery life, and stronger protection for your device. On the sweet side, it provides yummy new features like adaptive icons, notification categories, and of course, Autofill.

Much like Android Oreo, 1Password 6.6 is also made up of layers that are both crunchy and sweet. I hope you’ll forgive me for indulging my inner kid though, as I twist this cookie open and go straight for the deliciously sweet filling.

Mmm… sweet, sweet filling

When Google announced, earlier this year, that the next version of Android would include built-in support for Autofill, we almost lost our collective minds. In fact, I was so excited that I jumped straight into the developer preview and whipped together a prototype to share with you. Since that initial frenzy of excitement, we’ve been hard at work refining and polishing up the implementation in order to deliver the sugary-sweet filling experience that you deserve. With 1Password 6.6, I’m extremely proud to finally get to introduce you to Autofill with 1Password.

Using Autofill with 1Password, you can now save and fill your usernames and passwords in apps.

Saving a login with Android Autofill from AgileBits on Vimeo.

Saving a new Login is as simple as typing your credentials into an app and tapping the sign in button. When 1Password detects that you’ve entered a username and password, you will be asked if you want to save those details. From there, you can unlock 1Password if necessary and adjust the title or destination vault for your new Login item before saving it.

Filling existing Login items is a delectable experience too.

Retrieving a login with Android Autofill from AgileBits on Vimeo.

If 1Password is locked and it detects sign-in fields in an app, it will prompt you to “Autofill with 1Password”. Once you unlock 1Password, you’ll see a list of matching items and have the option of viewing possible matches if they exist. If 1Password is already unlocked, then matching items are displayed immediately below the active text field in the app. Tapping on one of the items will fill the username and password values for that item into the appropriate fields.

If you’ve also sweetened your device with Android Oreo and you’re looking to try that silky smooth filling for yourself, jump on over to our support site for more details about using 1Password to fill and save in apps.

More cookie to enjoy

Once you’re done with the filling in an Oreo, there are still those satisfyingly crunchy cookie wafers to savour. Similarly, we’ve also got a couple more Android Oreo goodies in this update for you to enjoy.

Android Oreo provides more fine-grained control over notifications by dividing them into categories and allowing you to adjust the settings for each category to your liking. You can adjust the sounds and visual indicators for a category or even turn off notifications for that category entirely. To extend this configurability to notifications from 1Password, we’ve separated them into three categories: sync status, sync failure, and 1Password account activity.

Adaptive icons in Android Oreo make it easier for app icons to look their best on any home screen. We thought that was a pretty tasty improvement, so we’ve updated the 1Password icon accordingly. Regardless of whether the launcher on your device favours icons as circles, squircles, rounded squares, or squares, the 1Password icon will adapt to match.

Other delectable treats

With the delicious improvements above, you’d be forgiven for thinking that only cookie-themed treats are available in 1Password 6.6. I’m happy to clear up any such misconception by mentioning a couple of improvements that don’t depend on Android Oreo.

In this update, we’ve added support for downloading and viewing Documents from your 1Password.com account. Once downloaded, an encrypted copy of your Document will be stored on device and made available for viewing whenever you need it.

We’ve also laid the groundwork for some filling that isn’t part of a cookie sandwich. We’ve been working with Google on a protocol that enables direct communication between apps and password managers. We’ve added support for the protocol in this update and we’ll be reaching out to developers about integrating support into their apps in an upcoming blog post.

If you’d like to read about the many additional improvements and fixes in this update that don’t quite fit with the dessert-themed puns, feel free to jump on over to the release notes. I hope you enjoy all of the treats that we packed into this release!

Take a tour of the new 1Password.com

When we introduced 1Password Teams near the end of 2015, it included a brand new way to access 1Password right in your browser. Tasks that were impossible before became not only possible but super easy. A few short months later, we introduced 1Password Families, specially tailored for home use. And a year ago, we introduced 1Password memberships for individuals. As 1Password.com grew to support a greater variety of people, it had to meet the needs of everyone — from individuals to small families to giant corporations.

Today, we’re unveiling the new 1Password.com. This redesign prepares us for the future and all the great features still to come. Whether you’re using 1Password.com at home or as an administrator of a large team at work, the new design is just for you. We’re so thankful for all the feedback you’ve provided, and we’ve used it to make your experience even better.

The Admin Console is dead, long live the Admin Console

We know that managing a team can be difficult. Although I can’t help you resolve any office fridge disputes, as the designer for 1Password.com I can make things easier for you in other ways.

If you’re an administrator on your team, 1Password.com just got a whole lot simpler to navigate. You’ll see one of the biggest changes as soon as you sign in. We moved all the features that used to be buried in the Admin Console out to the sidebar on the Home page. Everything you have permission to do is now directly available to you.

Information that used to be hidden in the Admin Console is now visible at a glance. For example, a list of all your groups is now accessible right in the sidebar, so you can instantly give someone access to all the resources they need with the right permissions automatically set.

Your ideas, implemented


One improvement in particular is a direct result of feedback we’ve received. You can now manage vaults right from the Home page. It’s just one more way we’ve put everything right at your fingertips.

Sweating every detail

The redesign touched on just about every element of 1Password.com:

  • The new Quests section helps new team and family members get started more quickly.
  • Higher contrast list views make it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for.
  • Higher density detail views show you more at a glance.
  • Notifications alert you to recoveries and pending team members in a central location on every screen.

All of this is only the beginning. We plan on doing much more with those detail views and notifications. Keep an eye out!

Good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight

One of my favorite parts of my job is adding a little levity. Now when you sign in to 1Password.com, you’ll see different messages in the sidebar based on the time of day. It wasn’t exactly the number one feature request, but I do hope it makes you smile. :)

Thanks for coming on this little tour with me. We’ve come to the end of it, but we don’t have to stop here. Feedback fuels designers like me; we love to hear from people using what we design. I love talking to people about how they’re using 1Password.com and what else they might want to see in the future. Email me your best ideas.

1Password 6.7 for Windows: a feature buffet

1Password 6.7 for Windows was meant to be a smaller update, but just like you always walk up to the buffet line with the best of intentions, we reached the end of the line with this update and ended up with three plates full of pastries. We have prepared a regular smorgasbord of 58 new features, improvements and fixes for you in this release. So grab a few extra plates and check out the latest Windows goodies. 🙂 Read more
