after having been released for macOS in MayO 1Password 8 is now available for iPhones, iPads and Android devices. The new version of the application was in test on mobile devices since April, and based on user feedback, the company has renewed the password manager app.

The most visible change, as it was already possible to observe in the beta, is the design. 1Password 8 brings a new look, simpler and unified on all platforms, as well as closer to the system language. On the iPad, for example, there is the sidebar to minimize, which is also present in other areas and applications.

New features include the ability to customize the options displayed on screen, improved suggestions and easier searching, and faster access to saved items. The autofill feature has also been improved and is faster, more comprehensive, and compatible with more apps and websites. Another feature available on mobile devices is Collections, which lets you create groups of vaults.

A notable novelty is the Watchtower (Watchtower). Initially in the desktop version, the function was extended to smartphones in the latest update, before only with some more limited points. Its purpose is to notify you if your passwords are compromised, leaked, or something like that.

Between updates, 1Password has implemented other features, such as facilitate connections with social networks And the one of generate random emails for logins.

Over the past few years, we’ve made a concerted effort to unify our design language. Updated designs result in an interface that’s both familiar and fresh.

It is good to remember that, to have access to all the functionalities of the application, it is necessary to subscribe to it by $3/month (individual version) or $5/month (with sharing up to five people). Also, this version 8 was released as a separate binary on the app store, so you need to download it manually here.
