AgileBits has issued 1Password 8.9.8, a maintenance update with improvements and bug fixes for the password manager. The release speeds up the unlock animation, improves screen reader support for the pop-up you see when moving items to a different vault, resolves an issue where the password field on the lock screen wouldn’t always be in focus, improves scanning of QR codes when setting up a one-time password field, adjusts the size of items shown in pop-up menus, addresses some issues related to the alphabetical sorting of items when symbols are included at the beginning of the title, and fixes a bug that caused the Manage Accounts window to be slow.
