1Password Development Preview 0.8.7

edited September 28 in Linux Beta

Good morning, and welcome to Monday! New week, new preview! You're going to like this one! πŸŽ‰

This week, folks who use two-factor authentication will be relieved to know that after you have authenticated with 1Password once, your device will be persistently authorized and you will not need to enter your 2FA code again! No longer will you be :running-in-circles: to find your two-factor authentication code after unlocking. πŸ™‚

Additionally, we have improved Watchtower. You will now get a more accurate count of weak and reused passwords.

Important instructions around 2FA

If you have 2FA enabled on your account the 2FA token is now stored in the system keychain. Most distros come with this preinstalled and this will just work. If you encounter problems, please take a look at a we have that contains some fixes and workarounds that you may find handy.

Did you know?

Watchtower is a built-in service for improving the security of your logins. Whenever you want, 1Password can check all of your passwords for strength, duplicates, and if they've been exposed in other breaches. What's more, we do all of this inside the 1Password application without revealing any information to the outside world.

You can create your custom report by launching Watchtower from the sidebar.
