1Password 8 for Mac Released With New Design and Features

AgileBits today announced the release of 1Password 8 for Mac with a redesigned interface and several new features.

1password 8 for mac
The popular password manager has been redesigned to better match the look of macOS Monterey, from the sidebar and unified toolbar to the typography and iconography. The new design language extends to 1Password for Safari on the Mac.

1Password 8 improves productivity with a new Quick Access feature. Inspired by the built-in Spotlight search tool on macOS, Quick Access is a floating panel that is always available, providing convenient access to all of your login information. Quick Access works with keyboard shortcuts and suggests the most relevant logins for the active app.


Autofill is now supported within Mac apps and system prompts, including when macOS requests your admin password. The feature can be triggered with the keyboard shortcut ⌘\ in apps like Zoom and Spotify and also works with two-factor authentication codes.

A new Watchtower dashboard provides an all-in-one overview of your overall password strength, detects vulnerable passwords, and more.

1Password 8 for Mac is available to download on the AgileBits website. A subscription is required, with individual pricing set at $2.99 per month for unlimited access across several platforms, including iOS, macOS, Windows, Android, and others.

It looks like an Electron app.

Sad.

They took $620 million dollars in series C funding and they gave their users an electron app.

So very sad.

I realized apple passwords and Secrets was enough to cover my needs.

Happy.

I don't have to deal with 1password ever again.

Priceless.

I can only imagine that the fine people who post on this forum will be delighted by both the new cross-platform app and 1Password's transition to subscription pricing. Something to bring joy for everyone!

Now, if only 1Password would bring back the headphone jack...

(P.S. Call me a heretic, but I like 1Password! It's reasonably priced, has loads of good features, works well across lots of different platforms, and best of all has been absolutely rock solid reliable for years - I can't remember ever having a single outage or glitch with it. I don't know what the future holds with all this new funding they've got, but for now it's an excellent service).

I still don’t understand what makes these password managers more secure like … if you know the master password, you have access to EVERY password instead of maybe the password of one site
Well, two things. Firstly, you are presumably (hopefully!) using two-factor authentication with a password manager. So a malicious actor would need both your device (which can identify you with biometrics) AND the master password.

But just as importantly, it automates the process of having different randomly generated passwords for each service you use. So if one random website you signed up for 5 years ago is compromised, that loss is siloed off and doesn't allow someone to access all your other accounts.

I think the 1P integrations are better than everyone else's. The CLI for SSH keys is useful. The ability share passwords with my team is also very nice.

The Electron UI is fine, and now that it works on linux along with other platforms that is an overall win IMO. Electron can work, as shown by VSCode, if companies spend the time on it.
Stop making sense. Don't you understand that because 1P is a subscription it must die horrible death? Please turn in your Mac Rumors card </sarcasm>

Seriously, I am the same way. 1Password is by far the most used application on my computer, except my browser. To me ( and I can't speak for any one else's situation), it pays for itself OVER & OVER.

Remember the time when AgileBits stopped by MacRumors to let us know they weren't forcing a subscription ('https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/1password-introduces-2-99-month-plan-for-individuals-with-6-months-free-at-sign-up-updated.1986181/page-2') on anyone? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
