1Password 4.3

Send Article to a Friend

AgileBits has issued a “massive update” with the release of 1Password 4.3 for Mac. The password manager improves 1Password mini with a speedier appearance, the capability to search through all fields (from usernames to secure notes), and the addition of keyboard shortcuts — including Command-O to anchor a details view window and Command-E to enter edit mode in the details view. The update also ensures that a change to your Master Password gets synced to other devices, improves how 1Password interacts with Dropbox, enables you to export items to CSV and plain text, adds the capability to move and copy items from one vault to another, adds support for syncing with removable USB drives, and adds full screen support. The release provides a goodly number of other fixes, including for manual text fields created in 1Password 3 not displaying in Web form details, printing of multi-line notes, and several issues related to item syncing when using multiple vaults.

In addition to the Mac version, AgileBits has updated 1Password for iOS to version 4.5 with improvements to Wi-Fi sync, addition of tags, and an improved 1Browser with all logins, identities, and credit cards available under the same button. To celebrate the release of these new versions, AgileBits has cut the price of both 1Password for Mac and 1Password for iOS in half through 27 April 2014, making it $24.99 for the Mac version from AgileBits and the Mac App Store and $8.99 for the universal iOS app from the App Store. (Normally $49.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members when purchased from AgileBits, free update, 38.7 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
