Hello,

When I upgraded from 1Password 5.3.1 to 5.3.2, the window popped to input your admin user name and password to finished the update. I noticed a period was missing. I didn't take a screen shot but it said something like, Please provide a password To do this type an admin name and password. There should be period before "To".

Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.10.5

  • Hey @ScarySulley! Thanks for pointing this out. We appreciate your attention to detail. ;) That prompt is actually something OS X controls, so if there was a typo it will be fixed on the OS X side of things when things are updated. Let us know if you notice anything else, though!

    Hi @penderworth,

    Thank you for the reply. I was thinking it could be an error on Apple's part but wasn't sure.

    Just to be sure, when update notifications show up in OS X, how do we know for sure they're legit from AgileBits and not some "fake" thing or malware of some sort trying to trick us? That typo just made me think of that.

    Thanks again for your reply!

    Hi there, @ScarySulley!

    One question for you before answering yours: were you updating 1Password from a non-admin user account?

    Hi @sjk,

    Yes, the account is a standard non-admin account. I have a separate Admin account if needed though.

    Hi @ScarySulley,

    If you're ever concerned you can ignore the notification and ask 1Password itself to check for updates using the menu option 1Password 5 > Check for Updates.... Would that ease any concern you have?

    I actually do this when it comes to Flash. I know, I should probably purge the MacBook with napalm but for now I have Flash installed. Whenever I see anything I tell it to please remove itself from my screen (I might use different, more colourful words) and then I'll open System Preferences and see if it also claims an update is waiting.

    Does that help at all or am I completely off base with your query?

    Hi @littlebobbytables,

    Thanks for the tip regarding the other way to get updates. I've done that in the past as well.

    I am a bit curious still about the standard and admin account thing @sjk mentioned. No rush, just curious. :)

    Hi @ScarySulley,

    I'd asked about your user account type because it's normal to see an authentication dialog like this during the 1Password update process through its 1Password Updater app from a non-admin account:

    The 1Password Updater app icon shows up as a badge on the lock image in that authentication dialog.

    In general, if I let my attention drift for a moment when an authentication dialog pops up it can be easy for an app icon in it to fall into a temporary blind spot. :)

    Hi @sjk -

    Yea that's the window/typo I saw. Odd for Apple to have left that slip through.

    Thank you again for your assistance!

    You're welcome, @ScarySulley.

    Yep, sloppy to have that typo there … and it's still in 10.11.1 Beta (15B30a). ;)
