    AgileBits today is releasing 1Password 7 for iOS with several new features, just one day before the iPhone X launches around the world.


    1Password has been redesigned with the iPhone X's new screen size and dimensions in mind. The app now supports Face ID for unlocking with the iPhone X's facial recognition system, in addition to the existing options of using Touch ID on older iPhone models or manually typing in a master password.

    An all-new feature called Quick Copy makes it quicker to copy and paste usernames, passwords, and one-time passwords into apps that don't support the 1Password extension. Simply open 1Password, copy the username for an app, switch to that app, paste your username, and then switch back to 1Password.


    Without needing to do anything else, 1Password will put the password on the clipboard, meaning you can switch immediately back to the other app and paste it. If you're logging into a site or service that supports one-time passwords, you can repeat the same app switching process to quickly get the one-time password.

    1Password 7 also has a redesigned Favorites tab with drag and drop support on iPads running iOS 11 or later, support for Handoff across iOS devices, keyboard shortcuts for external keyboards, and a slightly refreshed app icon.


    1Password is a popular password manager for securing usernames, passwords, credit cards, addresses, notes, bank accounts, driver's licenses, passports, and more behind one master password, with end-to-end encryption. A built-in password generator lets you create strong, unique passwords and memorizable pass-phrases.

    1Password 7 will be available today as a free update on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. An individual subscription costs $2.99 per month, which includes hosted service across Mac, iOS, Android, Windows, and 1Password.com.

    Hundreds, even thousands, of apps will be updated today with iPhone X support and new features. But lets advertise for this one!

    Awesome! 1password is an awesome app and have been using it for many years now. You will have to pry it from my cold, dead hands. Lol.

    Sure, but at a time where security seems to be at the forefront nearly every discussion regarding technology, I appreciate know that this app, my preferred password manager and one of the most used across all platforms, is doing its best to stay current.

    Any issues for people who are just paid owners of the application and not subscribers? I updated Ulysses after they went subscription and every time I open the application, it prompts to to subscribe and there's a timer I have to wait to count down before i can write

    ...how much do they want this time?

    I removed all apps that try to go subscription model. This is ridiculous.

    Wait. $3 per month? Is this an option or now mandatory? Been a 1Password User for years, but if this is going subscription based I'm out.

    Disclaimer: I work for AgileBits, makers of 1Password.

    Simply update the app and it's the same as before in this regard. The only window you'll see, and it's a one time window, is a "What's new" list. It gets dismissed by you and you'll never see it again. We hope to do this for each major release going forward I think. (7.1, 7.2, etc) to let people know a bit more about the major new changes.

    Just as before, you can still purchase the Pro features for standalone usage. Or you can sign up and create an account for the subscription. Literally nothing changed with this between version 6 and version 7, aside from the fact we support Apple's new purchase in-app purchases from iTunes instead of directly in the app which came as part of iOS 11.

    It's an optional service. We wanted to offer a much better solution for users and the only way to do that was with a hosted option. It is optional but it is also the best experience for using 1Password. But you're under no obligation to switch to it or use it unless the features it offers are worth it to you.

    More details can be found here

    It's a free upgrade for anyone that has purchased our Pro features, using a subscription, or were using the free version. Nothing changed in this regard.

    I love 1Password! Fortunately I bought it before the subscription plans so I'm grandfathered in. It's one of my most used apps and I'm glad it will be fully optimized for the iPhone X. I don't know how I'd manage my hundreds of passwords without it.

    Does it have the ability to add images to items? Or do I still need 1Password 4 to do this?

    By far one of the most helpful apps I've ever used on any platform.

    A little bit of here and a little bit of there.
    I've been using 1Password (paid) on mac, iPhone and iPad without any issues so far. I think paid licenses aren't offered anymore but are grandfathered in for a period of time. I don't remember for how long. When that time comes I'll probably just transition to iCloud keychain. I already have been using that for a while and 1password is just sorta a fallback.

    Thanks for the kind words. You're not "grandfathered" in. We still sell the Pro features separately. So new users can still purchase the exact same thing you have. The subscriptions are an option, but they are not the only option.

    Is this true just for iOS or also for MacOS? I am currently using 1Password 6 (purchased license) on my MacBook and was not able to find any information regarding an update to v7...

    I am a paid owner of 1Password (not a subscriber) and I updated the iOS app just now and it seems to be functioning normally as far as I can tell.

    I Own Pro-tier of 1Password on iPad, iPhone & Mac but don't have an AgileBits login, just use iCloud sync and it's treated me well. Thanks so much for the reply.

    I'd like to add you are in a group of only 10 developers out of 150 apps installed on my iOS devices who publish actual release notes and I REALLY appreciate it. "Bug Fixes" is the default for everyone now and then you launch the app and they've added advertisements or removed a feature I relied on and it's infuriating. so please keep it up if you can.

    Licenses and standalone purchases are still offered for Mac and iOS. We'll be bringing it back for the Windows application with the launch of 1Password 7 for Windows.

    We have historically always supported the latest iOS. For the last couple releases we have been supporting back to iOS 9 but we've also been holding ourselves back. Every iOS release includes great new tools for developers, we can replace our own code with new code from Apple and reduce the amount of code we have to maintain. Making an app work across multiple iOS versions can often add complexity and more to maintain.

    This year we decided to go iOS 11 only because it made sense for us to keep pushing forward and not holding ourselves back with older versions.

    For those using our 1Password.com solution they can add Documents (this was added in 1Password 6). We do not allow adding attachments to standalone vault items in this release. Sorry.

    We still offer standalone licenses.

    Thanks for this! I'm often the one who puts the release notes together during our beta releases, which get bumped up for the final releases. I don't do the writing before the release notes, but it's my job to handle the actual changes portion :) So it's nice to see someone appreciates that!

    Now I'm super stoked to get my X tomorrow. This is going to make getting all the accounts live again sooooo easy.

    Mac licenses are available in multiple ways:

    * From our website versions built in store. When the trial expires it'll bring up a window to purchase the license inside the app.
    * From our website, though the url is hard to find as we're trying to phase that out as it's just old and it'll be replaced with something else when 1Password 7 for Mac is released.
    * From the Mac App Store (see the In-App Purchases and you'll see the Standalone option)

    Agreed. Why people would ever trust a company with their passwords and information is the most insane thing I've ever seen. Ever. (This also goes for LastPass.)

    Please, keep it private, keep it local, and look at KeePass.

    I wish they were a lot more succinct though... At least the've provided a tl;dr (this time at least), but there shouldn't really be a need for that

    Not exactly. I have access to the Apple Watch app, I can keep attachments in my vault, I can tag things, I can add custom fields, I can add multiple URLs, and I can add new vaults. It might be important to note that I had also purchased the Mac version. My iPhone doesn't seem to be able to do everything listed above, but several of them from what I can tell and I definitely use the Apple Watch app regularly and have never paid a dime for the Pro subscription. Grandfathered for a lot of "Pro" features.

    Awesome, using Face ID for 1Password is going to be awesome. Touch ID was great, but now won't even have to tap the home button. That plus using the swipe on the home button should make things really fast...
