    I'm assuming the Mac mini 2018 and later will support watch unlock?

    It depends entirely if the Mac has a Secure Enclave, which would come on a T1 or T2 chip. From Apple's guide on the T2 chip it does appear the 2018 Mac mini does have one. If that's true, then yes, it will support unlocking 1Password with Apple Watch.

    I've been enjoying it on my 2018 MacBook Air but sadly my 2015 iMac doesn't have the required hardware. Time for a new one. ;)

    @BrokenHope the answer is yes. the 2018 Mac mini is supported.

    @Ben iMac Pro, mac mini or Mac Pro, or one of the Touch ID MacBook(Pro)s.

    @rudy Time for a Mac Pro then must be. ;)

    I am on the latest beta but I can't see an option to unlock with Apple Watch:

    I am using a 2019 MacBook Pro.

    Thanks

    @anshulmengi,

    What version of 1Password do you have installed?

  • @rudy : Here you go
    1Password 7
    Version 7.7.BETA-1 (70700001)
    1Password Beta

    I'm curious about this, "Learn more about Touch ID and Apple Watch security."?

    Can you elaborate? What questions do you have in mind?

  • r8ders2kr8ders2k Junior Member

    Since I don’t have a T/T2 enabled Mac, I’m curious as to what info the link provides.

    @r8ders2k:

    I am not sure I follow: what do you see when you click on that link?

    Since, I do not have a T1/T2 enabled Mac, I cannot click the link, as I don't see that particular feature on my 2017 iMac or 2013 MBP. Thus, I was curious when I saw the image that @anshulmengi posted. I merely copied the image and highlighted the link for reference.

    @r8ders2k:

    You should be able to click on that link anyways. But in any case, it brings you to the article posted by vplewis (thank you for the assist :+1: ).

    @vplewis thanks!

  • So it's safe to assume if I ever wanted this feature for the foreseeable future, I would have to buy a new Mac with a T2 chip? I went a different direction for a new Mac and have this feature working in the system overall but was hoping I could use it within 1Password as well.

    That's correct, the feature requires a Mac with a T2 chip.

  • Ugh, that is unfortunate. Thanks for the quick response.

    You are welcome @Codester :+1: Sorry to hear it's not the ideal solution for you :(

  • Yea I went the route of building an AMD Threadripper Hackintosh. It's just more power for the money that I needed in a Mac. I have Watch unlock working great in MacOS but would need an app that uses the API to unlock as it lacks a T2 chip. You guys are a great company and been using 1P for 5+ years but it doesn't work for me at this point.

    I understand @Codester, I am sorry to hear that. Hackintoshes are unsupported systems, so I am afraid we cannot guarantee all features there, only on actual Macs.

  • I wasn't expecting any company to support a Hackintosh and I'm aware of everything it can and cannot do compared to a real Mac. I'm not upset about this decision or upset with you as a company. No company can please everybody. I was just asking if the T2 was going to be used for the foreseeable future.

    @Codester:

    Got it, thank you for the clarification! And thank you for the kind words!

    I was just asking if the T2 was going to be used for the foreseeable future.

    For the moment, I think this is indeed the case, yes.

  • Like @anshulmengi I too just installed the latest 1Password beta (7.7BETA-5) and don't see the option to enable Apple Watch to enable unlocking. I have a 2016 MacBook Pro with TouchID (and System Information confirms that there's a T1 security chip inside). I'm still on Mojave (macOS 10.14.6). Is Catalina required for this feature to work?

  • rudyrudy

    @shahed,

    Yes, Catalina is required for the Apple watch unlock feature.

  • Thanks @rudy. I was holding off on upgrading to Catalina due to some 32-bit apps that I still use (that are not supported on Catalina). Sounds like I have to bite the bullet since it's more important to me to get the ability to unlock 1Password using my Apple Watch! Cheers and thanks for adding this feature
