1Password 4.6 for Windows: Fine-tuning the air conditioner

I’m not sure what it’s like where you are, but it’s been HOT lately, here in Germany. Recent days have had many on the team wishing they could work in their underwear. (Spoiler alert: I believe many already do.)
And just like fine-tuning an air conditioner in the house can make the difference between melting like ice in the sunshine and constantly looking like a plucked goose, we’re using version 4.6 of 1Password for Windows to make some useful improvements and fix a few bugs, to make things extra comfy for you.

Here’s the new coolness:

1Password + Yandex = best pals

The 1Password extension now works nicely in the privacy-focused Yandex browser. To install it, simply visit our browser extensions page in Yandex. Yandex will identify itself as Google Chrome (it’s based on the Chromium project) and from there you can install the extension like you usually would in Google Chrome.

Usernames column in the Logins category

You asked for it, we’ve listened. Now you can have a username column in the Logins category. To enable it, select View > Columns > Show Username in Logins in the menu bar.

Reordering Favorites

Don’t like the order of your favorites? Now you can reorder them by right-clicking the item you want to move up or down and selecting the appropriate menu option.

New custom field type: Phone

Once you add a custom phone field to an item, clicking the phone number will allow you to dial it with your favorite VoIP application or hand off the call to your smartphone by using a remote phone app for Android or Windows Phone.

More cool stuff…

  • The reliability of 1Click Bookmarks in Internet Explorer has been vastly improved.
  • The date picker in all categories now includes month digits next to the month name.
  • Our translators have further refined the localization of the app.

You can find the entire list of new features, improvements, and bug fixes in the release notes.

1Password 4.6 for Windows is available now as a free update for all existing owners. Choose Help > Check for New Version in the menu bar, or grab the new version from our downloads page.

1Password 4.1 for Mac: The Little Big Update

1Password 4 for Mac has only been out for two months, but we just couldn’t wait to get you an early holiday present—our first major update! 1Password 4.1 for Mac is now available for our website customers, and it is waiting for review out for Mac App Store customers as well. "4.1" may look like a small update, but it packs some great big stuff, including something we’ve wanted for a long time: updating Login passwords right from the browser extension!

1P4 Mac 4.1 update existing login


Now with 1Password 4.1 for Mac, when you update your password at a website (ideally using our Strong Password Generator!), our new save dialog has the option to create a new login or "Update existing Login." If you have more than one Login for the site, you can choose which Login to update. Toss in the ability to tag and add this Login to a folder on-the-fly, and this is pretty much the greatest way to create new Logins and update them down the road when the need arises.

There’s plenty more goodness where this came from, we also have: a new "Top" Item List Layout (yep, we brought back the traditional item list for the old schoolers), a new search-by-title option, printing (both individual items and your entire vault—careful with that last one!), some Wi-Fi Sync fixes, and more.

Check the gallery below for more highlights, get the full details in our changelog, or dive right in. Website customers can use 1Password > Check for Updates right now, and Mac App Store customers can check the store’s Updates tab.

1Password 4.3 for iOS brings Wi-Fi Sync, custom browser agents, more

A number of our customers want to sync their 1Password vault between multiple devices, but remain in complete control of their data, keeping it within their local network and out of The Cloud. We took a big step towards that goal earlier this month with the release of 1Password 4 for Mac and, among over 90 new features, the triumphant and revamped return Wi-Fi Sync. Today we take another big step with 1Password 4.3 for iOS, a free major update that now supports Wi-Fi Sync, among a few other new perks.

Wi-Fi Sync

1P4iOS wifi sync buttonAs the name suggests, Wi-Fi Sync lets you sync your 1Password data between multiple devices on the same Wi-Fi network, leaving The Cloud entirely out of the process. We have detailed step-by-step instructions for setting it up between a Mac and iOS device, but in short: go to the new Window > Wi-Fi Sync option in 1Password 4 for Mac, and it will walk you through a couple of simple steps to get going.

More Goodies

In addition to Wi-Fi Sync, 1Password 4.3 for iOS now lets you change the browser agent of our built-in 1Browser to Safari for iPhone, iPad, and Mac, as well as Firefox and Chrome. We also have better support for iOS 7, though our full iOS 7 refresh is coming in a future, free update.

There’s plenty more in 1Password 4.3 for iOS, so check it out in the App Store and leave us a great review so we can bring you more!

1Password 4.2.2 for iOS is out with improvements for iOS 7, 1Browser, and VoiceOver

1Password 4 for iOS iconWe just released a small update to 1Password for iOS with some handy improvements. It is available now in the App Store.

First, if you’re one of those intrepid early adopters I mentioned, we added some enhancements while using 1Password on Apple’s iOS 7 developer beta. We also have improved VoiceOver support for searching and a crash fix when scrolling tabs in 1Browser, the awesome new browser we built into 1Password 4 so you can log into websites, checkout while shopping, and fill long registration forms with a single tap.

As I mentioned, 1Password 4.2.2 is available now in the App Store. If you have a spare second, please give us a great rating, a Like, or even a review in the store—they really do help, and we really will see it and think even more highly of you as a smashing individual.

1Password 4.2 for iOS gets huge update to browser, sharing features

Sometimes there’s an app. I won’t say hero, because what’s a hero?

But sometimes, there’s an app. And I’m talkin’ about 1Password for iOS here. It’s the app for our time and place, and we just gave it a huge, free 4.2 update.



How huge is this update? Well, for starters, we added our Strong Password Generator to the 1Browser on iPad (yes, the all-new Web Mode is now the much snappier and pun-ier “1Browser”). Go & Fill Bookmarks are now in 1Browser on iPad too, so you don’t have to switch back to Vault Mode to find a Login to open and fill automatically. We also added the option to AutoSubmit after using AutoFill for a Login.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is yes: the Strong Password Generator and Go & Fill are on their way to 1Browser on iPhone in a future update.

If you’re using 1Browser as, well, your one browser more often these days, you may be pleased to hear that if 1Password sees a URL in the clipboard, it’ll prompt you to open it in 1Browser. There are plenty more 1Browser goodies where those came from, so be sure to check the full changelog below.


Yeah, that’s right. You asked, we answered. You can now share 1Password items from Vault Mode via Messages and email in either an obfuscated format or plain text. Your lucky recipient will see an “Add to 1Password” link, and I recommend they tap it; makes the whole process pretty easy.

By the way, here’s a ProTip about sharing: if you use the obfuscated option to share items, the item’s ID is included. This means that, if you share an item and your recipient makes an update—such as add to a Secure Note or update a Login’s password—then shares it back to you, 1Password will actually update your current copy of the item with the changes.

Just be sure to share with care. Using the obfuscated option means anyone with a copy of 1Password for iOS could add it to their library (since we’re using a shared key for these items, it could also be reverse engineered). Make sure you trust your recipient(s) to keep those messages private and, even better, delete them as soon as they’re done.


Search in 1Password usually focuses on item titles. Now we also search URLs for Login items. But if you don’t find what you need on the first pass, you will now see a button to expand search results to all fields.

But wait, there’s more

Honestly, you don’t even need to wait till 3’oclock. Go get the 1Password for iOS update in the App Store right now.

1Password 4.1 for iOS adds… way too much great stuff to fit in a post title

1P4 iconJust in time for the weekend, 1Password 4.1 for iOS has hit the App Store. This is such a great update that we had to categorize all the changelog items under headings so you can keep track of them all. True story.

Some of the best additions are in the all-new tab-slinging, form-filling Web Mode. We redesigned the Action Menu to use the spiffy new icon view in iOS 6, which means we can fit more options like sharing the current webpage on Twitter or Facebook. In addition to emailing, printing, or opening the page in Safari, you can now copy the current page’s URL to your clipboard. A performance nip here, a bug tuck there, and Web Mode is even better.

You can now search in iPad in portrait orientation, change the font for displaying passwords, and view attachments in Secure Notes that you added with a desktop version of 1Password. There is support for the new 1Password USB Sync feature we’re working on to provide a local sync option for users who miss Wi-Fi sync (it’s in private beta testing right now). There are plenty of bug fixes to go around, too.

Something for the power users

Probably the coolest new feature in 1Password for iOS 4.1 is support for URL schemes. This means you can do some pretty awesome stuff, like automatically opening the current webpage from Safari, Chrome, or another iOS browser in 1Password’s Web Mode for form filling and Login-ing goodness. All you have to do is tap in the URL bar, add ‘op’ to the very beginning, and tap Go/Return to make the switch.

Things get a bit more interesting with our new support for a “onepassword://search/search_text” URL scheme to open 1Password and automatically search for the text in your clipboard. This means you can use a utility like Launch Center Pro to create a shortcut to search 1Password for the contents of your clipboard, and Federico Viticci at MacStories has already penned some great examples with which you can tinker.

But you know what’s cooler than offering URL support in your app? Having someone else’s app already support your URL scheme before you’ve even released it! Our new URL schemes can also be used by other apps, and as far as I know, Riposte is the first. It’s an upcoming client that baked support for the 1Password URL scheme (but only if 1Password is installed) into its built-in browser and even the login screen!

When you view a link someone shared in Riposte’s browser, you can tap the action arrow and slide to the left to find the 1Password login option. Tap it, and 1Password will open and automatically search for the current webpage’s URL to help you find and copy your Login’s password more quickly.

How cool is that? It’s wonderful to see Riposte adopt 1Password’s URL scheme and we would love to hear from more developers who want to do it.

That about wraps up our huge 1Password 4.1 for iOS update, we hope you love it! As always, let us know what you think and be sure to leave a review in the App Store!
