Happy Monday, everyone!
Another long list of new bug fixes and quality of life improvements. This week, here's a short list of prominent new features:
We hope you like these improvements! Read about more in today's release notes.
We also have another big feature to showcase to you today!
Starting today, 1Password for Linux and the 1Password Browser extension can share information between one another. If you enable this feature, then when you unlock 1Password for Linux, the browser extension will automatically unlock at the same time. But, it gets better!
All accounts that you have in 1Password for Linux will immediately appear with the browser extension. And if you are in your browser and click on the extension icon to unlock, 1Password for Linux will handle the entire unlock process. If you have biometric unlock set up for the desktop side of 1Password, the browser extension gets it for free!
Now, go into 1Password settings and enable "Share information with 1Password in your browser".
As soon as you click on the 1Password extension icon, the extension will connect to the desktop app!
note: This does not always work in Chromium. This seems to be a distribution-specific problem, so we hope to get it fixed soon. This feature also cannot work if you installed 1Password with Snap. This is a much more complex issue in which we need to learn how to provide these features for sandboxed applications. Watch for that in the future!
Definitely let us know what you think about this feature!
Go to the getting started guide for instructions on installing or updating 1Password.
I feel very fortunate to be here watching these features go live, and contributing my own, working on a product that I love on a platform that I have been using since the 1.2 kernel days. Thank you so much for taking this journey with us.
