Change the time in which Face ID unlock is enabled

Community Member
in iOS

Hi there!

1P by default enables Face ID unlock for 1 hour. After 1 hour, it asks you to enter your master password again.

I know that this is a very good security practice and that this functionality was implemented a while ago. Nevertheless, is there a possibility to extend the time that Face ID unlock remains active?

Thanks in advance,



1Password Version: 7.9.6
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: iOS 15.5

    Hello @JuanraNunez! πŸ‘‹

    You can change how often your account password is required (extending how long Face ID remains active) by following these steps:

    1. Open and unlock 1Password.
    2. Tap on Settings.
    3. Tap on Advanced.
    4. Tap on Security.
    5. Set "Require Master Password" to the desired length of time.

    I hope that helps. 😊

    Dave, my man!

    I didn't see that option before.
    Your answer was very helpful.
