Agilebits has released version 5.2 of 1Password for iOS. The latest version of the password manager includes a new look, plus a handful of cool features that will hopefully make their way to the Android version of 1Password someday.
One major update includes a new login creation tool that allows users to enter login information into 1Password on iOS quickly and easily. Choose a service from the available list (like Gmail, YouTube, or Netflix) or type in a new one. Then, enter your login credentials, and tap the “Save” tab for super fast set up.
The basic password manager is free, but there are Pro features available through an in-app purchase. One new Pro feature is a one-time password tool, which helps facilitate faster logins to two-factor authentication websites. The tool makes it possible for you to sign in to websites that support a secondary, randomized password. The pro feature for iOS also lets you enter new custom field types.
1Password’s third-party app extensions will now lock automatically at the time you have set up within the security app.
Plus, with a few tweaks to the app’s design, users will notice that the user interface is cleaner, icons have more color and pop, and editing login information is easier.
Additional updates include the ability to sync your Master Password on Mac, a better detail view for sight impaired, the ability to delete attachments from the item editor (pro features), and notifications when saving a login. Check out Agilebit’s changelog for the full list of updates.
There is no information at this time as to whether the Android or Windows versions of 1Password will receive the login creation tool or the one-time password tool for two-factor authentication.
