1Password 4 for iOS Updated to Support Wi-Fi Sync

by Josh Centers

Earlier this month, when 1Password 4 was released for Mac, I raved about the return of Wi-Fi Sync (see “1Password 4 for Mac Better Than Ever [1],” 3 October 2013). There was just one problem: AgileBits hadn’t yet updated the iOS version to enable the feature.

Thankfully, 1Password 4 for iOS [2] ($17.99) has now been updated to version 4.3 to support Wi-Fi Sync. Once you have the update, follow these steps to enable the feature.

In the Mac version of 1Password, choose Window > Wi-Fi Sync (Command-9) to display a pairing code.

Then, in the iOS version of 1Password, tap Settings > Wi-Fi Sync, select your computer from the list, tap the Secret field and enter the code.

After you’ve finished the setup, to sync your logins over Wi-Fi, make sure you have the iOS app open and unlocked, and then choose Window > Wi-Fi Sync in the Mac app.
