1Password is among the best password managers for iOS, and it is about to get even better. Putting a pause on adding new features, 1Password developers have announced several improvements to the app’s fundamentals.
Last year, AgibleBits released 1Password 8 with a new home screen and additional customization options. Based on user feedback, the company is further improving some of these features.
There really are apps for everything at this point. Whether you’re a coffee snob aiming to simplify your brewing experience, or simply looking for a tool to ease the frustration of your digital life, there is an app here for you. If you have other awesome apps to suggest for future installments, email your suggestion or tweet them over!
iOS and iPadOS 15 have been out for a couple weeks now, and as with most new iOS releases, they usher in plenty of new apps to take advantage of the latest features. This week, we’re talking all about iOS and iPadOS Safari extensions.
We’ll show you how to export all your usernames and passwords out of 1Password and into another service, such as Dashlane. We will also explain how you can save your documents, which can’t be exported automatically.
1Password today rolled out its big version 8 update on Mac, and a lot of users are less than pleased. The release introduces a significant design revamp and improvements to Watchtower, the feature that helps you weed out weak passwords.
Version 8 also promises performance improvements, but fans aren’t happy that it has been completely rewritten as an Electron app, and it’s now a subscription-only service, with no option to buy a one-off license.
One fantastic new feature of iOS 12 is that password manager apps can integrate into the built-in password autofill. You know how when you tap a password field in Safari, and it offers to fill the password in from your iCloud Keychain? It’s pretty handy right?
Now it can also serve up passwords form third-party apps like Dashlane and 1Password. And that’s not all.
One of the biggest password managers for iOS and Mac will not be acquired by Apple, despite rumors to the contrary.
1Password issued a response this morning to a report that Apple is in talks to acquire it saying the rumor is “completely false.” AgileBits, the developer studio behind 1Password, has been independent since its inception and the firm says it plans to remain so indefinitely.
If you’re not using a password manager, you really should be. While it might seem daunting to stop relying on iCloud Keychain or a web browser like Safari, it’s really easy to step up your online security with a password manager like Dashlane, the official password manager of Cult of Mac.
In fact, it’s incredibly simple to import all your passwords into Dashlane. It’s the first step toward taking true control of your passwords — and in today’s video, I’m going to show you how.
