1Password Announces Upcoming Features for 1Password 8

Posted February 2, 2023 at 4:39pm by iClarified
1Password has announced a slew of new features coming to the popular 1Password 8 password manager.

The company says all of these improvements will be available in the near future. If you don't already have a subscription to the password manager, you can get a free trial here.

Check out the new features below...

Reorder fields and sections inside items
Every item can contain multiple fields and sections. But what if you want to re-order those different bits of information? Soon, you'll be able to do just that in 1Password 8. Just edit the item, then drag-and-drop to your heart's content.

You might notice a couple of limitations at first, but we'll be working hard to give you true freedom and flexibility in every saved item. (We know this is a highly requested feature, so we want to get it into your hands as quickly as possible!)

Ability to search within any list of items
We're bringing this back to 1Password 8 for iOS and Android. In any list of items, you can enter a query to quickly find the one that you're looking for.

PIN unlock on mobile
You asked for it, and it's happening. Soon, you'll have the ability to use your device PIN code or pattern to unlock 1Password. You will, of course, still have the option to unlock with biometrics or your account password, if that's your preference.

Improved Face ID unlock
Face ID is a fast and secure way to unlock 1Password and access everything stored in your vaults. We're working on a lot of improvements so that Face ID is an even more consistent way to unlock 1Password 8 for iOS and 1Password for Safari.

Set a default vault for saved items
Do you juggle a mixture of private and shared vaults? Or have a work and personal account, with multiple vaults in each? Set a default vault for all new items that you save via the browser, so that you never misplace any of your sensitive data.

Better VoiceOver support
VoiceOver is an amazing accessibility feature by Apple that helps visually impaired people. We've improved 1Password 8 so that VoiceOver no longer gets stuck in some text fields. The screen reader will also read out all characters as you go past them – even if you start editing the associated text.

Finally, if you're typing in a text field and make a mistake, you can go back and find the right spot using the arrow keys. All the text will be selected and read out, however you can also choose a specific part by holding shift and an arrow key.

A simpler set up process for new users
We want to make it easier for everyone to use a password manager, regardless of how tech-savvy they are. A new setup process on the web puts a greater focus on importing data and getting started with 1Password in the browser.

Option to turn off Emergency Kits (1Password Business)
The Emergency Kit is a helpful document that gives team members all of their account information and a place to write their account password. While useful, we recognize that every business is unique, with its own people, culture, and security policies. So we've added the option to disable Emergency Kits, reducing the friction for new team members who are getting started with 1Password.

Option to turn off file storage (1Password Business)
Don't want your team members storing documents and other files in 1Password? No problem. We're giving you the option to turn off file storage.

Option to enforce 2FA using only security keys (1Password Business)
Enforcing two-factor authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of protection to team members' 1Password accounts. But some forms of 2FA are stronger than others. Level up your security by requiring that everyone uses a FIDO2/WebAuthn security key to unlock 1Password.

And so, so much more
Here are some of the other updates that are coming to 1Password 8:
● An offline indicator will show when you don't have a connection to our servers.
● Recently searched items will appear at the top of the search tab in 1Password 8 for iOS and Android. Search results will also load in as soon as you start typing.
● The option to turn off auto-submit while using Universal Autofill in 1Password 8 for Mac.
● The option to specify that an item should "never fill on this website".
● The ability to edit and delete vaults in 1Password 8 for iOS and Android.
● Helpful username suggestions that are based on usernames you've chosen and saved in 1Password before.
● A new indicator in our mobile apps that makes it easier to access additional options within an item. For example, this will bring up the option to copy, reveal, or show a password in large type.
● Simpler instructions for setting up autofill on an iPhone or Android device.
● More ways to customize the home screen of 1Password 8 for iOS and Android.
● The ability to instantly open a saved address in your preferred map app.
● The ability to import passwords from within 1Password 8 for iOS and Android.
● The option to specify that an item should only be filled on the exact domain you've chosen. (e.g. So a password for rick.greatmemes.com doesn't autofill on phil.greatmemes.com)
● A beautiful App Catalog that suggests items to add to your vaults.
● Accessibility improvements throughout 1Password 8 for iOS and Android.
● 1Password Business: A public preview of Unlock with Okta, which will give teams the ability to manage and secure everything in their password manager with single sign-on (SSO).
