Feature Request - Mobile Exception to GeoFencing

With our previous provider, they had a policy you could turn on that would enable geofencing but exclude(allow) mobile logins. In that flow, the initial login would subject to an approval that would be sent to your email on record for the user so that the user could effectively approve that device.

Would love to see if a similar feature could be available with the business product.

    Hi @lspeterman,

    Just to confirm, are you looking to require an approval workflow for anyone attempting to set up and initially sign in to the 1Password apps on their mobile devices? While 1Password isn't capable of this right now, I'd be happy to pass this on as a feature request to our development. Feel free to also share any additional requirements or specifics you'd like to see.

  • Hi Max,

    I don't know that it has to be an approval workflow. That might be the simplest method to registering a mobile device on the service. The ultimate end state is to have a higher trust of the mobile device knowing that geofencing mobile is much harder to achieve. For desktop use, we definitely want the access geofenced. It could also be explored using any MDM providers like inTune or MobileIron. Happy to work with y'all on fleshing out the use case.

  • For what it is worth, the lack of mobile support is becoming a bit of an issue with some of our customers. If you do want to emulate what our previous provider did, I'd be happy to detail the flow for you.
