Port 6258, what's going on

What is being transmitted over port 6258. I see that 1password agent is listening for something, but what? Is it safe to firewall this off so it doesn't leave my machine?

    Hi Matt,

    Welcome to the forums.

    This port is used only on the loopback interface (127.0.0.1) for the 1Password extension to talk to the 1Password Agent. It should be safe to firewall it from any sources other than 127.0.0.1.

    If you do a packet capture on lo0 and then filter by tcp.port == 6258 you can see what traffic is being passed. Nothing is transmitted in the clear.
