Feature Request: On iOS 14.5 and later, support unlock with FaceID + Watch when wearing a mask

iOS 14.5 allows the iOS device to unlock using a combination of (relaxed) FaceID and an Apple Watch when one is wearing a mask. I don't know if it is possible but it would be great if 1Password also supported this unlock method. I often need to consult 1Password when out and about and while wearing a mask and having to type my (long) password each time is quite inconvenient.

1Password Version: 7.7.1
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: iOS 14.5 beta
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Hi @ChrisJenkins!

    Thank you for the suggestion! My understanding is that this is not yet possible in 1Password because of the way it must decrypt your data, rather than just authenticating you, and until recently I think this was only available in iOS itself, not for third-party apps. I have however sent your feedback to the developers, perhaps there is something we can do here in the future :)
