1Password 7.7

AgileBits has issued 1Password 7.7 with design refinements for macOS 11 Big Sur (including a new icon) and Safari integration enhancements that include an inline menu that appears when filling in logins, credit cards, and forms. The password manager now enables you to unlock 1Password using an Apple Watch on Macs with a Secure Enclave, improves the Strong Password Generator in the main 1Password editor, scales down and wraps large type for extra-long passwords, resolves an issue where dragging items onto the spring-loaded vault selector would fail, fixes browser integration with Google Chrome Beta and Dev releases, and adds support for administrators to enforce MDM settings for many of the options in Security Preferences. ($64.99 standalone app from AgileBits or the Mac App Store or a $2.99- or $4.99-per-month subscription (TidBITS members setting up new accounts receive 6 months free), free update, 57.5 MB, release notes, macOS 10.13+)

Comments About 1Password 7.7

Notable Replies

  1. The new version seems rather intrusive in Safari. Every time you go near an email field, it displays a 1Password box on the screen.

    Thankfully you can tone this down the the 1Password Browsers preferences by turning off Automatically show inline menu.

  2. Yeah, initially I really liked having 1Password directly in the login fields on websites, but after a day of using it I found it often conflicted with Safari’s autofill. The Safari and 1Password pop-ups would overlay each other making it impossible to reliably (or even at all) select an item from either. This happened with credit card info, usernames, and name autofill. If they could fix these collisions I’d give it a try again, but at the moment it makes things much worse so I’ve turned off inline support.

  3. I have turned off Safari’s Autofill to prevent a conflict.

  4. I guess that’s the other option. I use Safari autofill for addresses, but maybe I should put them in 1Password and turn off Safari autofill. Thanks!

  5. Have tried numerous times to install the update from the Apple MacOS App Store but it fails to complete every time. Contacted 1PW support but they told me to delete the App and download it from the website. Do these companies think we have nothing better to do than spend time fixing their bloody mistakes. If the App Store App won’t download they should remove it from the App Store and fix it!

  6. I just had this problem and the solution turned out to be simple: in the existing install of 1P, go to its menu and choose “quit 1Password completely” and then tell the App Store to download.

    I did that and it worked just great. Before that I tried half a dozen times and was very frustrated.

  7. Hey thanks Mark, I did that and this time I received a pop-up that told me I had to to quit Safari first to finish setting-up the 1PW App update. Thanks again.
