1Password 4.1.3

Send Article to a Friend

AgileBits has released 1Password 4.1.3 with a new security option that locks the app when using fast user switching to shift between accounts. The update also now tags newly created items with the sidebar tag (if selected), displays the name of the current vault when viewing Sync Preferences (if multiple vaults are available), adds a password generator button in the details view, and adds Catalan localization. It also fixes a bug where a wrong item could be sent to the trash when using View > Item List Layout > Top, a problem where syncing the Mac client to an iOS client over Wi-Fi resulted in folder name changes, and an issue with smart folders not updating after reloading or deleting. The Mac App Store edition of 1Password offers the same changes, but with the 4.1.2 version number. ($49.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members when purchased from AgileBits, free update, 37.9 MB, release notes)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:
