Can can we expect the Whitelist for the Sidekick Browser and it's 1Password chrome plugin?

edited December 2020 in Mac

I am a big fan of the Sidekick Browser (v. 87.7.36.5759) as an alternative to Google's Chrome browser.

However, the 1Password chrome extension cannot connect with the Desktop App. That renders 1P useless for now.

Sidekicks developers have said that you need to whitelist their browser so the extension can connect with the desktop app.

When can we expect this to happen?

I heard that 1Password X is working but I am one of the non-subscription users so 1Password X is not an option for me. I've purchased the standalone version for Mac.

Looking forward to your feedback and thank you for a slick piece of software.


1Password Version: 7.7
Extension Version: 4.7.5.90
OS Version: BigSur 11.0.1
Sync Type: Dropbox

    Hi @adriancares

    Thanks for taking the time to reach out and for your interest in using 1Password in new & different browsers. At this time we are not planning on whitelisting additional browsers beyond the ones currently supported in the 1Password 7 app. As Dmitry pointed out 1Password X will work in most any Chromium-based browser, including Sidekick, and so that'll be the solution at this point for the many different browsers that have been popping up. 1Password X does not have the same restriction where browsers have to be whitelisted before they can be used with the extension.

    I am one of the non-subscription users so 1Password X is not an option for me. I've purchased the standalone version for Mac.

    I'd encourage you to reach out to our team at [email protected] to discuss further.

    Ben

  • Thank you for a fast response.

    Understood. So I don't have to impatiently wait for the whitelist each day.

    It's a bummer that only 1PX users can benefit from 1P using the Sidekick browser.

    Will reach out to the support team as recommended.

    Thank you.

  • I'd like to add my +1 to this request. With the recent malware in The Great Suspender, I'm excited to give Sidekick a real shot, since it handles tab suspensions natively:

    I'll reach out to [email protected] I guess since I'm not interested in migrating to 1Password X at this time.

  • Another +1 on this, my main reason being that the native app for Mac supports TouchID, which 1Password X sadly does not integrate with, so when choosing complex passwords, re-entering that password manually is quite tedious.

    It will, hopefully soon, just so you know ;)

  • It will, hopefully soon

    that's great news, happy to test a beta when it's available, I'm anyway already on the 1password beta channel in sidekick

    @puja108:

    We don't have a beta with this available for test yet, but our developers are working on this at the moment. You can read more details here if you are curious:

    To avoid any confusion here, even if 1Password for the Browser is installed in SideKick, it won't be accepted by the native app so you still won't be able to unlock using Touch ID.

  • Just to confirm, even with the new beta it is not working in Sidekick. It works well with the new beta in both Chrome, Brave, and Firefox on Mac. Can you confirm you will not open this up for Sidekick? Cause then my decision to drop Sidekick is sadly final.

    Confirming that the integration will not work for Sidekick.
