FWIW I use the AEGIS Authenticator app on my Pixel phone to generate TOTPs (I like AEGIS very much).

In terms of security is it any better opening AEGIS using its password via 1P versus opening AEGIS with one's fingerprint (as I have always done)?

  • Hey @jmjm, it seems like you're asking if Autofill or Fingerprint Unlock is safer to use with AEGIS.

    Since security is our number one priority here, any features that we have still enable 1Password to protect your data and keep you in control. Therefore, both are safe options to use!

    You can learn more about our Autofill security and our Biometric Unlock security.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know :)
