Several new features are coming to the 1
The biggest change here is biometric support. 1Password users on Mac, PC and Linux can now use their respective biometric authentication systems to quickly unlock 1Password in the browser, although this feature requires a download of the 1Password desktop app.
If you’re anything like me, you thought 1Password’s browser extension already supported biometric unlocking. That’s because the old, “classic” extension is doing support for Touch ID and other unlocking systems. This update is for the main 1Password browser extension (previously called 1Password X), which is faster and cleaner than the “classic” version.
In addition to biometric support, the 1Password extension now works with dark mode and has a brand new ‘save login’ pop-up window. When the save window pops up, you’ll get a full view of all the content in your new login, allowing you to add additional information without opening the 1Password app. The redesign also applies to 1Password’s “update login” dialog box, which appears when 1Password detects that you’re using a new password to access a website.
The update also brings some minor improvements to 1Password in the browser, such as bug fixes for certain websites, UI updates that make text easier to read, and faster loading times for all 1Password popup windows. You can download the update manually or reset your browser to have it installed automatically. Firefox users are stuck with the previous version of the 1Password extension until the update is approved by Mozilla.
