After months of beta testing, 1Password 8 for mobile is out now on iOS, iPadOS, and Android devices. We have listed all the new features and improvements on the new 1Password 8 app.
The redesigned home screen allows users to personalize it according to their preferences like hiding, unhiding, or reordering the different fields and items. They can even pin specific fields from items to the home screen directly for quick access.
To customize your home screen, scroll to the bottom of the screen and select “Customize” then select or deselect sections to show or hide them (respectively). Drag-and-drop sections to choose the order in which they appear.
All new Watchtower brings a whole new level of security on mobile.
- It alerts the users when they need to take action and makes it easier to do so. For example, “If your credentials are involved in a data breach, you’ll see an alert in Watchtower and in the item itself. Tap it to take steps to protect yourself (like changing your password).”
- Watchtower evaluates and uses security data points to calculate its “Security score” which is designed to give users a birds-eye view of their overall security. The score includes factors like weak passwords, inactive two-factor authentication, compromised passwords, and others.
New always-available navigation bar for users to quickly access their home screen, all items across their accounts (all vaults and tags), search, and the new Watchtower dashboard.
Collections are now available on iOs and Android for users to create a custom group for work, personal to travel vaults, or more.
Made security questions easier by generating random answers to security questions. “Just add a security question field to any item, and let 1Password generate an answer for you.”
Improved autofill is now faster and more precise to quickly fill in the information of payment cards, identities, addresses, codes, and more.
