AgileBits today updated 1Password for iOS, introducing a new auto copy feature that's going to make it a lot easier to use two-step authentication for various apps and services.

Whenever you use 1Password to sign into a service on your iPhone that features 1Password integration, the app will now automatically copy any one-time passwords you have associated with that login. That speeds up the login process, because you can have 1Password fill in your account details, and then at the two-factor verification step, the requisite short-term password is already copied to your clipboard.

1passwordonetimepassword
In the screenshot above, for example, I used 1Password to log in to my Dropbox app. Dropbox has 1Password integration, so I just need to tap the 1Password button to fill in my account details and then choose the appropriate account. As 1Password is adding my details, my one-time password for Dropbox's two-step verification process is also copied, so it's super simple to log in.

Prior to this change, to log in to Dropbox, I'd have to open the 1Password app separately to get the one-time password, negating the usefulness of the integrated login feature.

The update also features the ability to create vaults for 1Password.com accounts, support for Korean, and a tweak that causes item creation and modification dates to now appear in item details. There are also several minor bug fixes and other small improvements, like better translations and the addition of previously used passwords for all categories that support them.

We can't think of anything better to beat the heat than a nice cold ice-cream in the sunshine ... with extra sprinkles, of course. We'd like to think of your one-time passwords as the sprinkles that complete your Login items. Now 1Password automatically copies those one-time passwords when you fill an item with the 1Password Extension, saving you a step and a giving you more time to enjoy that ice cream. Yummy!

1Password for Mac has also been updated with the same features that were added to iOS, but the update has not yet been made available for the Mac App Store. It should be coming soon.

1Password can be downloaded from the App Store for free, but will require a subscription to unlock the app's full feature set. [Direct Link]

I love 1Password, but they're going to have to work very hard to get me to give up Authy for one-time passwords. I'll have to take a look at this.
i gave up on authy. so much better to go with 1password. no need to fiddle with two separate apps.

It is very easy to set up one-time passwords in 1password. I ditched Authy and haven't regretted it.

This is great but I think iOS 11 offers this anyhow. I noticed testing iOS 11 out that it pretty much fills in my username and password info on safari for me. And in apps, I just hit the icon and it does the rest for me.

I actually like it better than Authy just because it's simpler having everything in one place, but I am lazy and haven't transferred everything over because it is a hassle to change two-step verification apps.

I never really got 1Password. I find it a little clunky and poorly designed in some regards (namely modifying existing passwords, adding extra sections, UI bugs a plenty) and because of that I'm so glad that Safari can now fill passwords in other apps - Safari syncs passwords around my iOS devices much better than 1Password. I have 1Password installed on my iPhone and iPad however it costs a bomb for the Mac (€69.99).
That's odd. I've never had an issue with 1Password. It has always worked flawlessly for me.

I will admit, it is expensive, but I think its worth every penny. Keychain has failed me on quite a few occasions.
