1Password on Mac Updated With Easier and Smarter Drag-and-Drop Password Functionality

AgileBits today released 1Password 7.3 for Mac with over 150 improvements and bug fixes following several months of development.


First and foremost, the 1Password mini menu bar assistant has been redesigned to make it easier to get your information out of 1Password. While you are dragging and dropping your username and password from 1Password mini to a supported app, for example, 1Password mini now instantly fades away.


1Password for Mac has also been updated with an all-new "filling brain." Powered by on-device machine learning, 1Password can analyze a webpage and suggest the items you are most likely to need on that page. If you are online shopping, for example, 1Password mini will have your credit card information ready.

Read the release notes for all of the changes, including the ability to select your accounts in the vault picker to see all the vaults in that account.

1Password is a popular tool for storing usernames, passwords, credit cards, addresses, notes, bank accounts, driver's licenses, passports, and more behind one master password, with end-to-end encryption. A built-in password generator lets users create strong, unique passwords and memorizable pass-phrases.

1Password 7.3 can be downloaded from the Mac App Store or the AgileBits website. A subscription to 1Password across all platforms costs $2.99 per month for individuals and $4.99 per month for families.

I'm still on the last version. Find it absurd to subscribe to a password retrieval app.


When I find an application that provides value for me and does its job extremely well I am willing to support it, even with a subscription
That said, the only ones I subscribe to are:

* DropBox
* NordVPN
* 1Password

1Password does far more than just retrieve a password

* Checks for reused passwords
* Shows when passwords were found in a security breach
* Shows when passwords are in a database of exposed passwords
* Saves 2 Factor Authentication codes

I have replaced all my passwords with generated passwords now and it was painless and secure

There are other good solutions, but I have used 1Password for years, and I don't begrudge the subscription for it at all

One of the best apps on the Mac. Heck, the entire Apple ecosystem.

I’m happy to support them.

Version 7 is available as a license version as well...

Install version 7, follow the on screen instructions, near the bottom (in smaller print) on the purchase page you'll find an option to purchase a license instead of moving to our subscription solution.

I second your recommendation for Enpass. I moved from 1Password to Enpass for this very reason. The one I’ve been using the most lately is perhaps an even better solution: Myki. Check it out. It’s pretty cool.

Aside from a single VPN app, I’ve moved away from subscription apps entirely. So, I had to move away from Ulysses. For that I went to IAwriter. I got a lifetime license on an excellent cloud storage service. For writing and research, I use DEVONthink and Scrivener.

That about covers it for me. Intensely dislike the subscription model. Oh, and for games, I will only buy premium standalone games (on IOS, Steam and GOG). I would no more subscribe to the board games I play than I would subscribe to computer or mobile gaming.

There are good companies putting out premium productivity apps and games. The more we reward them with our purchases, the more these sort of organizations will survive and continue to produce excellent quality products.


That’s bunk. Good software doesn’t grow on trees. It’s expensive to build and maintain. The future is subscription based. Why would a software company waste time catering to cheapskates that are only 20% of users? I’m sick of this cheapskatism. It’s gross.

I find it absurd not to. 1Password makes my digital identity more secure and I use it anywhere from 5 to 15 times a day, almost every day, across multiple devices. It’s worth it to pay a few bucks a month to support these devs and ensure they’ll be profitable enough to continue to maintain, support and improve it over time.

It’s Enpass for me. They don’t bury their one-time license fee in obscure places just so people think subscription is the only option. When 1Password went that route, I ditched them and never looked back. Enpass is great and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an alternative.

I can add one more indispensable item, shared Vaults. I love that I have multiple vaults that I can choose to share or not share passwords with other people.


Yes, Yes, Yes. I'm paying roughly $60USD/year for the family plan, despite only having two members of my family. I use four vaults currently - one for only my wife, one for shared logins for both of us, one for only me, and a work one also only for me. I also store bank information, credit card information, drivers license info, etc - all easily accessible via any of my devices.

I have no idea what kind of money Software Developers make, but if it's, say, $20/hr, I'm *beyond* happy to pay for three hours of salary for a year's worth of password protection for two people. That, and it will tell me which passwords have been found in breaches, which passwords are reused between accounts, which passwords haven't been changed in a while, and offers top notch browser integration to boot. For me and my wife, it is WELL worth it.

Video accounts, all family members have access. Bank account, only me and my wife. Personal website, only me. Heck, one time I had to send my son some tax documents. I create a new vault, copies the files to the vault and granted him access. No need for unsecure email or using a file sharing account.

I get that people don't like subscriptions, but for an application I use 20-50 times a day, this is worth it.

(And no Keychain is not a suitable replacement.)
