Feature Request: Option in App and Plugin to "Remember Master Password" so users have the choice

I'm currently evaluating 1Password Teams for my 100+ size organization.

We currently use LastPass Enterprise but have found it outdated and cumbersome and so far my evaluation of 1Password is very positive except for one major feature oversight.

I understand the security risks involved with a password manager remaining logged in 100% of the time and am satisfied with that risk since the overall operating system's security measures are already extremely secure (hardware key 2FA required and autolock mandated and users sandboxed)

"Remember master password" is currently a popular feature in LastPass that ads a significant amount of convenience which encourages our users to actually USE the provided password manager... without the option to stay logged in even through reboots will greatly reduce adoption within the user base so I hesitate to migrate from LastPass.

Please let me know if there is a concrete timeline or roadmap to implement this feature/option.

Currently using up-to-date windows App and 1Password X Beta plugin for Chrome.

  • Hi @whitlabs

    Thanks for taking the time to write in about your use case, and for evaluating 1Password for your team.

    Please let me know if there is a concrete timeline or roadmap to implement this feature/option.

    As far as I'm aware this is not something that is currently on our radar, likely because of the security implications you mentioned. That said, I'd like to put you in touch with our business team to discuss further. They may have more information. You can reach them at [email protected]. I hope that helps!

    Thanks for taking the time to respond! ;)

    I'm thinking one other acceptable solution would be for 1Password X browser extension to support Windows Hello biometrics similar to how the desktop App works... or link the browser extension authentication to the desktop app somehow?

    It sounds reasonable to expect a user to scan a fingerprint to unlock the password manager after a reboot or OS lock.

    Any plans for Window Hello support in the browser extension?

    My pleasure! We do have Desktop App Integration for 1Password X planned. That will make it such that 1Password X and 1Password for Windows lock and unlock together, which would make it possible to use Windows Hello with 1Password X. We're hoping to have that in beta before the end of the year.

    Hello,

    Any update on this feature implementation? It's been a HUGE pain to my workflow without it.

    I've been running the beta personally for almost a year and this feature is required before I can recommend 1Password to my team.

    Cheers,

    Whitney

    Desktop app integration or whatever it will be called this go-round has not returned just yet. Hopefully soon. We're all anxious to see it. I know I am for sure.
