1Passwords Preview new features in the popular password manager

Based on user feedback on social media, the company then decided to implement many of these.

First, 1Password 8 users will be able to rearrange fields and sections within items. Within each element, you can easily add many other custom data sections for further customization. To make it even better, just drag and drop as you like.

Another addition is the ability to search by item list. This makes it easy to quickly find the item you need.

For even more security options, you’ll soon be able to use your device’s PIN or pattern to unlock the app. These will join the existing biometric or password option for the account. For Face ID users, the app will work more consistently in 1Password for iOS and the Safari extension.

Anyone using multiple private and shared vaults will be able to set a default vault for new items you save in your browser, so you’ll always know where the information is stored.

A better setup process for new users will make it easier for everyone to use the app, regardless of their technical skills.

Other minor improvements include an offline indicator, the ability to delete and edit vaults, simpler instructions for creating an autofill, and more ways to customize the home screen.

You can download 1Password 8 now for free from the App Store. The app is available for iPhone and iPad along with an Apple Watch version.

A subscription is required to use the app. A single subscription is available for $3.99 per month or $35.99 per year.

You need a 1Password Families subscription to share with up to five other family members. That’s $6.99 per month or $59.99 per year.

Both options offer a free 14-day trial period.
