Version 8 is a step back

Why mess with what works... I used 1Password 7 for a long time and loved it. Version 8 was released and broke so many things, it's a case study in frustrating your users by not leaving good enough alone. Since the version 8 upgrade the Safari extension is constantly asking me to enter my password (version 7 was happy with my touch ID). I get random errors I have never seen before, like "Unable to save" when trying to save a new login, clicking the "Use suggested password" item but it is unresponsive and nothing happens... They also removed a feature I LOVED and used daily: holding alt/option while looking at an item revealed the password - gone in version 8. I wish I could go back to version 7, and I am not the type of person who wants thing to stay the same, I love changes and improvements but from where I stand, I gained nothing from version 8 but lost reliability and functionality I used to love about 1PW. I am only not looking to switch because their successful vendor lock-in. I am too deep into the 1PW ecosystem (installed everywhere) and leaving it behind would cause even more pain than this miserable downgrade they call "version 8".

Developer Response ,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear you're not enjoying 1Password for Safari, and we appreciate you sharing your feedback with us. If you reach out to our team at [email protected], we'd be happy to work through your concerns and answer any questions you have.

Terribly unreliable on Safari

The Chrome version of 1Password works fairly well, but I have daily issues with 1Password in Safari. This usually manifests itself as a disconnection from the desktop app, where you try to fill a user/password, 1Password asks you to unlock, and then the Safari extension hangs. Sometimes it will say that it needs to reload to reconnect. At this point it does seem like it reconnects to the 1Password desktop app, but the dropdown in user/password fields won't show without restarting Safari. But there are other annoying persistent bugs as well. Any kind of form autocomplete will battle it out with 1Password. So if the extension thinks that it should try to populate an address field that wants to autocomplete your address (i.e. you start typing your address and it uses Google to try to autocomplete for you), then the 1Password drop-downs will compete for this spot. That's annoying. The most annoying one, though, is competition with Safari's built-in SMS/email OTP autocomplete or just generic email fields. I want to retain the option in Safari to generate a unique email address for a site, so I need that function enabled, but 1Password steps on the Safari drop-downs every time. 1Password team, please, fix this extension. I love 1Password. When I spun up a company, I chose 1Password for our org of 30 people. You can do better.
Thanks for your detailed feedback. We're sorry to hear about the issues you're experiencing with 1Password in Safari. Rest assured, our team is actively working on resolving these bugs. In the meantime, we'd love to gather more information about your specific devices and configurations. If you could reach out to us at [email protected], our team will reach out to help.

I like the new version

I have been using 1Password since 2014 and just upgraded from version 6, so the new version, though somewhat different, has been a much smoother experience for me. I resisted upgrading, especially after reading some of the negativity here, but I liked that I didn't have to dump my old version 6 app and data to upgrade, so I felt confident I could go back if something went wrong or I was simply unhappy with the new version. To my surprise, the migration process from 6 was easy (though I did have to download version 7 first, but still not a big deal). I realized that Dropbox was having a hard time connecting to my devices regularly, so consequently, I often was missing new passwords if they hadn't been synced. That no longer is the case since everything just syncs flawlessly! Plus, I love that y'all are taking the time to respond to all of the comments. I'm sure the complications will get worked out, but if you aren't coming from version 7 directly, 8 is a no-brainer!
Thanks for this great 5-star review. It's great to hear the upgrade process was easy for you, and that you're enjoying 1Password 8 - we appreciate you letting us know!

1Password: Password Manager

  • Software and apps

How to Get the Most Out of 1Password

Thorin Klosowski

By Thorin Klosowski

Everyone needs a password manager , but that doesn’t mean getting started with one isn’t intimidating. 1Password has long been one of our favorite password managers , but it can be a bit baffling to use at first. And even if you’ve been using it for years, as I have, you may have never bothered to find uses for all the other little features it offers, including secure notes and documents.

The research

How to set up 1password on your computer, browser, and phone, start browsing and fix your crummy passwords, memorize the quick access keyboard shortcut, make the most out of watchtower, use tags to organize (and get rid of the two-factor authentication warning), don’t forget about secure notes, memberships, documents, and software licenses, other extra features worth exploring.

Installing 1Password works differently than for most software, and its security features mean you have to take a couple more steps than usual. But once you’ve set it up, every password for every online account you have will be unique and nearly impossible to guess, making your online life more secure.

Step 1: Create a 1Password account with a strong master password

A screenshot of 1Password's password creation screen.

Before you do anything else, you need to create a 1Password account . 1Password isn’t free; it’s $36 a year, but it’s worth that investment if you can afford it. Some of the tips we’re including below are applicable to other password managers, such as Bitwarden , which is free, but in those cases you’ll have to poke around to find some of their different options.

When you create your account, take some time to create a good strong password. As 1Password’s name suggests, this is the only password you’ll need to remember from here on out. We have some tips for creating a strong password .

1Password gives you an Emergency Kit that includes a place to write down your password as well as your “secret key,” which you use to link your account to the 1Password applications (more on that below). Print this out and store it somewhere secure in your house, such as a fireproof safe . If you don’t have a printer, write down the secret key number and password and store that note in a secure place. As tempting as it may be to store the information online in a service like Dropbox or Google Drive, doing so would defeat the purpose of a secure emergency kit since your information is at risk if that service gets hacked.

Step 2: Install the desktop app and browser extensions on Windows or Mac

A screenshot of the app download screen for 1Password, giving users the ability to download the app for multiple platforms.

Unlike most password managers, 1Password has both a desktop application and browser extensions. You should install both.

  • Download and install the Windows or Mac application.
  • In your web browser, head to the 1Password website and log in to your account. Click Get the Apps and then the Add your account directly button. If prompted, select the 1Password app.
  • Enter your master password. The desktop app is now set up and ready to use.
  • Head back to the “Get the Apps” screen in your browser, and you’ll see a link to the browser extension for the browser you’re using (if you use Safari on Mac, you can skip this step ). Click the link to download and install the extension. If you use several browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, or Edge, you’ll need to repeat this process for each browser.

You now have access to 1Password both in your browser and through the desktop application.

Step 3: Install the mobile app and enable password form filling

a set up screen for 1password app.

Finally, it’s time to get 1Password running on your phone or tablet. To make the most of it, you need to take one more step beyond just installing the app.

  • Download the Android or iPhone app.
  • Log in to your account. Then, either use your phone’s camera to scan the QR code on the Emergency Kit or manually type in the secret key.
  • Finally, enable autofill passwords so that your phone can pull up the password manager. On Android, open 1Password and then tap Settings > Autofill and enable it. On iPhone, you do this in the operating system’s Settings app. Tap Settings > Passwords & Accounts > Autofill Passwords, and on the 1Password entry, enable Allow filling from . You should also disable Keychain if it’s enabled. On iPad, consider enabling the Safari extension instead of Autofill for a more desktop-like experience.

From now on, when you need to log in to an account in a browser or app, you’ll see a password prompt pop up when you tap the login details.

A screenshot showing 1Password's password generator feature.

Now that you’ve set up 1Password, you can start browsing. Each time you sign in to an account, take an extra couple of minutes to find the site’s “change password” page and use 1Password to make your password stronger.

As an example, here’s how this works for a Google account:

  • Log in to your Google account using your current password.
  • Head to the Google account page and select the Security tab.
  • Click Password and enter your password again.
  • On the new-password page, 1Password should pop up with a suggested password. Click on this, and it’ll populate and save the password. If the window doesn’t pop up, you can click the 1Password icon in the browser, click the + button, and select Password generator.

That’s it—now you have a strong, unique password that’s saved in 1Password so you don’t have to remember it. This process is tedious for the first week or so of using a password manager. But trust me, it’s worth the hassle. The process not only makes your online accounts much more secure but also saves time in the long run, as you won’t have to type out passwords as often. We suggest starting by strengthening the passwords on your most important accounts, including platform-specific accounts (such as Google, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft), your email, every social media account you have, and bank accounts.

Some websites have specific password rules, like requiring “one number, one capital letter, and one symbol,” and for these you may have to tweak the password generator (1Password attempts to automatically understand these rules, but it doesn’t always work). Instead of using the autofill recommended when creating a new account, click the 1Password browser extension icon, then the “+” sign, and select Password Generator. Select the Random Password dropdown and you can change different factors to create a password that meets a site’s requirements.

Quick Access screen for 1Password 8.

With the release of 1Password 8, the company introduced a new keyboard shortcut to its desktop app that pulls up Quick Access, a floating panel that suggests login details no matter what window you have open, including web browsers and desktop apps (like Steam or the Mac App Store). Through this feature, 1Password can now fill passwords everywhere on your computer just as it does on your phone.

  • On Windows, the default keyboard shortcut is Control + Shift + Space.
  • On Mac, the default keyboard shortcut is Command + Shift + Space.

Filling passwords in desktop apps is useful enough on its own, but Quick Access can also function as a “launcher” of sorts, too. Press the keyboard shortcut, type the name of a website where you have a login, and you can then open it in a new tab and log right in.

a screenshot for Watchtower.

Watchtower is 1Password’s password-auditing feature, and it’s worth keeping an eye on after you’ve gone through the meticulous process of strengthening all your passwords. You can find it in the sidebar of the 1Password desktop app.

Start by making sure you have no weak and reused passwords. If you didn’t change your passwords in the step above and instead added passwords for all your accounts, you may find some passwords listed here. If you do, change those passwords.

You’ll also get a Watchtower score, which is meant to help guide you toward improving passwords through various means . This includes a list of any accounts stored in 1Password that support two-factor authentication. As the name suggests, two-factor authentication sets up an online account so that logging in requires two forms of identification. In most cases, those two forms include your password and a separate code that’s generated either in an app like Authy , a physical security key , an email, or an SMS message. Take the time to set up two-factor authentication for any accounts 1Password lists in this window. We strongly recommend setting up two-factor authentication for your 1Password account as well.

Even if all your passwords are strong and unique, and you’ve enabled two-factor authentication everywhere you can, Watchtower serves yet another purpose: alerting you to compromised accounts. 1Password searches for known security breaches and on Have I Been Pwned , a service that checks for account details in data breaches. If any account details show up here, change your password.

a screenshot of 1Password's tagging system.

Initially, I didn’t find the tagging system in 1Password useful, instead relying on its automatically generated tags and using the search to find what I needed. But over the years I’ve found that tags have helped my workflow in a few ways.

For example, I tag anything related to work accounts as “work” and any service I’m trying as “trial.” This setup makes it easy for me to go back and delete the passwords or accounts later.

I also tag anything that’s subscription-based with the credit card attached to that subscription. This way, when the card expires, I can easily see which services use that card so that I can update them.

A screenshot of various personal information stored in 1Password.

Aside from passwords, I also use 1Password as a repository for any other personally identifiable information I’ve needed on the go. 1Password encrypts everything, which means it’s a much more secure place to store information than, say, a notes app or Dropbox. If you have a family plan, it’s also a great way to share certain details with family members.

I use 1Password for everything I may need to access remotely in an emergency and anything I’m not comfortable storing in cloud storage. This list includes:

  • TSA PreCheck and airline miles numbers
  • copies of important documents from a safe, including powers of attorney, insurance policies, and the like
  • automobile information, such as the VIN and license plate numbers
  • scans of passports or IDs
  • passcodes for lockboxes or combination locks
  • serial numbers for devices, music gear, bikes, and other equipment
  • gift card numbers

I also use 1Password to store the handful of software licenses I have, plus server access details and any specific setup information I might have for apps, such as email login setup instructions. You can store any of these details in a shared vault.

Set up correctly, 1Password can be a repository of not just your passwords but your entire digital identity. With its shared vaults, it’s also a secure and simple way to share private documents with other members of your household.

1Password has a handful of niche features that are useful in certain situations, including online shopping, crossing international borders, or integration for Mac (and Apple Watch):

  • Privacy.com integration : 1Password includes optional support for Privacy.com credit cards. Privacy cards are virtual credit cards you can generate for free, and are useful for recurring subscriptions that are potentially difficult to cancel, or when you’re ordering from a web store that feels sketchy. You can set up a virtual card so it’s one-time use or has a limited amount of cash on it, like a gift card. You need to make an account at Privacy first, then through Privacy, click Your name > Account and scroll down to the Integrations section to set up 1Password. Once you set up your Privacy account and integrate it with 1Password, you’ll find autofill options to generate cards any time you’re in a card number field of an online shopping cart.
  • Biometric unlock with Windows Hello, Touch ID, or an Apple Watch: If you have a computer that has some sort of biometric login, such as Touch ID on a Mac or Windows Hello on a Windows computer, you can use that to log in to 1Password without typing in your password every time. In the Windows app, click 1Password > Settings, select Security, and click Allow Windows Hello to Unlock 1Password. In the Mac version, click 1Password > Preferences and select the Security tab; here you can choose Touch ID or Set up Apple Watch.
  • Learn when to use Travel Mode : 1Password includes a Travel Mode that removes login information from your devices unless you mark them to do otherwise. This is useful if you’re facing a potential device inspection while traveling. Before you travel, log into your 1Password account from a web browser, click your name, then click My Profile . Click the Travel Mode toggle to enable it, and any accounts not marked as safe for travel will be removed temporarily from all your devices. When you’ve arrived safely at your destination, disable Travel Mode and your accounts will return to your devices.

You might not think to explore the settings and other options inside a password manager, but they can hide a number of new features or fix annoyances you might have, so it’s worth poking through them occasionally.

Now in beta: Save and sign in with passkeys using 1Password in the browser

Passwordless, 1password in the browser.

Last year, we joined the FIDO Alliance and committed to building safer, simpler, and faster login solutions for everyone. Today, we’re taking a major step forward and announcing that passkey support has started to arrive in 1Password. Using the public beta versions of 1Password in the browser , you can now save and sign in to online accounts with passkeys.

Our beta extensions cover the following browsers:

  • Chrome (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
  • Firefox (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
  • Edge (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
  • Brave (macOS, Windows, and Linux)
  • Safari (macOS)

1Password for Mac, iOS, Windows, Android, and Linux have also been updated so you can view, edit, move, share, and delete any passkey you’ve created using 1Password.

If you need a quick refresher: passkeys are a new kind of login credential that entirely replaces passwords. Passkeys don’t need to be memorized, there’s no such thing as a “weak” passkey, and they can’t be stolen in a data breach. These passwordless login credentials also speed up the process of signing in to your online accounts. Research by Google shows that signing in with a password takes twice as long as a passkey login .

We’re proud to be leading the transition from passwords to passkeys, and can’t wait for you to start saving your own passkeys in 1Password.

Why you should create and store passkeys in 1Password

Passkeys aren’t just a new type of login. They’re a simpler, more secure alternative to passwords that will make it easier for all of us to protect our online accounts.

Here are just a few reasons why you should start using passkeys in 1Password:

Signing in with a passkey is fast and convenient. Unlike traditional passwords, there’s nothing to type out or memorize. You simply open the website you want to sign in to, find the sign in page or button, and let 1Password handle the rest.

Passkeys are secure. Behind the scenes, every passkey has two parts, and only one of them is shared with the website you’re signing in to. You need both parts of a passkey to authenticate, which means no-one can access your online accounts unless they have physical access to your devices – and a way to unlock them.

You can sync your passkeys between devices. Other solutions may lock your passkey to a specific device or only support syncing within a specific ecosystem. 1Password lets you use your passkeys on any device and any major browser.

Saving passkeys in 1Password will keep your digital life organized. Store your passkeys, passwords and other sensitive information in one secure and convenient place. That way, you know that everything you need is always at your fingertips in 1Password. You can also organize your passkeys with vaults, tags, and more!

1Password remembers where you’ve chosen to use passkeys. Signing in can be overwhelming when you use a variety of passkeys, passwords, SSO, and ‘sign in with’ services. 1Password will sign you in with the correct credentials every time, regardless of the website and login method.

You’ll know when it’s possible to secure your accounts with passkeys. In the latest 1Password beta apps, Watchtower will tell you when a website that you use has added passkey support.

You can share your passkeys. Need to give a co-worker or family member access to one of your passkey-protected accounts? Just put the passkey in a shared vault, or give them access via item sharing.

How to get started

Ready to start saving and signing in to accounts using the latest 1Password in the browser beta? Follow these steps:

  • Open a website that supports passkey login. You can find passkey-compatible sites in our passkey directory . In the latest 1Password beta apps, Watchtower will also tell you when one of your existing accounts can be secured with a passkey.

Follow the account creation process and choose the option to create your account with a passkey, rather than a password. If you’re updating an existing account, sign in as usual and look for the passkey login option in your account settings.

An on-screen prompt will explain where your new passkey will be stored. If you already have an account with the website, you’ll see an option to update your current credential with the new passkey or save it as a new one. Once you’ve confirmed that the new passkey should be saved in 1Password … that’s it! You’re all done.

  • The next time you want to sign in to the account, the beta version of 1Password in the browser will offer to use your newly-created passkey.

Coming soon: Unlock 1Password with a passkey

Earlier this year, we said ‘ goodbye, passwords ’ and announced you’ll also be able to unlock your 1Password account with a passkey, rather than a password.

We’ve been working hard on this functionality and will be launching it in beta later this summer! Here’s a sneak peek of how unlocking 1Password with a passkey is going to work:

The future is passkeys

Today’s public beta launch of saving and signing in with passkeys is just the beginning. We’ll continue to update 1Password so that passkeys are even more seamless and useful, regardless of which device or browser you’re using.

For example, you’ll be able to save and sign in with passkeys on an Android device later this summer, once Android 14 is available. This will work not only in Chrome for Android but also in other native Android apps that support passkeys.

We’re also hard at work bringing the same level of passkey support to iOS! That means you’ll be able to save and use passkeys in any app installed on your device, including Safari. (We’ll have more to share on this soon.)

Passkeys are the future. And the future has finally arrived.

I Thought Sleep Tracking Was Pointless Until I Tried It

Your google photos can now be easily moved to icloud, i didn't realize how car sick my phone made me until i enabled this ios 18 feature.

It can be frustrating when you need to log into a site on a different device or browser but you’ve lost the password. Luckily, if you've previously stored that password using Safari on iPhone or iPad , you can easily retrieve it. Here’s how.

First, launch "Settings," which can usually be found on the first page of your Home screen or on your Dock.

Scroll down the list of Settings options until you see "Passwords & Accounts." Tap it.

In the "Passwords & Accounts" section, tap "Website & App Passwords."

After you pass authentication (using Touch ID, Face ID, or your passcode), you will see a list of saved account information organized alphabetically by website name. Scroll through or use the search bar until you find the entry with the password you need. Tap it.

On the next screen, you will see account info in detail, including the username and the password.

If possible, memorize the password quickly and try to avoid writing it down on paper. If you often have trouble managing passwords, it's better to use a password manager instead .

  • Add logins to your Favorites. You can mark an item as a favorite if you’d like it to show up at the top of the list of suggestions for a website, regardless of the full URL.
  • Edit the title of the Login item with additional information. For example, if you have multiple Google accounts, you can change the title of each Login item to specify what it’s used for (“Google - Personal” or “Google - Work”). Then you can search for the title of the Login item you want in the username or password field to filter your suggested logins.
  • Make sure the Login item has the full URL for the website. For example, if you have multiple Slack accounts, you can edit your Slack Login items to include the workspace in the website field (https:// example1 .slack.com, https:// example2 .slack.com, and so on). Then you’ll see the appropriate login at the top of the suggestions list when you sign in to that Slack workspace in your browser. You can also change where a login is suggested and filled .
