Unlock with YubiKey (FIDO2)

I'd love if I could unlock 1Password (Windows, X, etc) using my YubiKey, rather than having to type in my long, complex password every single time. Is this planned at all?

1Password Version: 7.6.780
Extension Version: 1.21.0
OS Version: Windows 10 v2004
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Hi @mythofechelon!

    You can currently use your YubiKey as a second factor in 1Password for iOS and 1Password for Android, so hopefully we will find a way to bring the feature to other platforms in the future too ;)

  • Hi @ag_ana,

    Yes, I have my YubiKey added as a second factor to my 1Password account but the Windows app still makes me enter my master password to unlock it.

    Indeed, that would be expected behavior at the moment, until we implement this in 1Password for Windows too :+1: But if your goal is quicker unlocking, I should say that 1Password can work with Windows Hello, which might help you with this:

    Use Windows Hello to unlock 1Password on your Windows PC
