Hello Hunters! We're back again after our incredible 1Password Business launch to bring you some more awesome goodies:
1Password 7 for Mac And Windows are the biggest upgrades we have released *ever*, and 1Password members get it all for free. As soon as 1Password 7 hits your machine, you'll notice the crisply re-thought lockscreen and the deep integration with Touch ID and Windows Hello. Unlock with a touch, or a smile, and you'll be delighted by the bold new dark sidebar. Use 1Password from your browser and the brand new 1Password Mini will make your items easier to find and get you back to what you were doing faster.
Dig a little deeper, and you'll find so many improvements, a millennial's Pinterest board couldn't hold them all. Compose a secure note with the powerful new Markdown compatibility. Drag and drop items between vaults for quick and simple organizational nirvana. If that's not enough, add tags to items that are nested more snugly than a baby bird after breakfast. The new Watchtower with "Have I Been Pwned?" and Two-Factor Auth support will give you a constantly up-to-date overview of your online security. Oh and yes, you can buy a license for it instead if that's how you roll.
We know you are going to love 1Password 7, and we would love to answer any and all questions you may have here in the comments, or over on Twitter @1Password.
@1password @cohix What options are offering users with Mac version 6.8.9?
@1password @hellotom You can download 1Password 7 from the Mac App Store, or you can download it from our website: https://1password.com/downloads !
@1password @cohix is it a paid upgrade or do you have an offer?
Do you have an upgrade for standalone version without subscription?
@1password @hellotom It is a paid upgrade, yes! If you download from our website, you can purchase a license for version 7, but the Mac App Store version is for subscriptions only. There is launch day pricing at $15 off the regular price.
@1password @cohix thanks Connor. For how long will you be offering the discount?
@1password @hellotom No timeline for that, we're going to keep it at the launch price until we feel that everyone who wants one gets one :)
@1password @cohix where do you purchase the standalone one? Doesn't seem to be a link on your site. Do you have an upgrade price for v6?
@1password @hellotom When you download the app from our website, the store will be inside the app, with all the pricing. The launch special is for all of our v6 license holders :)
@1password @cohix 👍🏻 Thank you Connor.
Great update, I like the new design, team! The Inactive 2FA section on Watchtower shows a lot of accounts, for which I have already enabled 2 step verification. Is there a way I can correct this, or teach 1Password?
@arunsathiya If you're using another app for the 2FA codes, or you're using a different 2FA method, you can add a "2FA" tag to any item to make Watchtower ignore it in that report :)
@cohix Lovely! Thank you!
Really great product. I appreciate not just the value and ease it brings to securing data, but also how reliable it’s been the past several years I’ve had it.
@tonycalvis Thanks for the kind words, Tony :)
This kind of product has only become increasingly relevant and necessary. I've been with 1Password since at least version 3.0 in 2010. The best new feature in 7.0 is the ability to sign in to native apps — not just browsers!
@chrismessina Native app support 🙌🏽
Not sure why this is hunted again and featured again.
It was officially hunted+launched by the 1Password team a week ago.
@arunsathiya There was a bit of a mix-up, this is now a combo post for our Mac and Windows launches, which were last week and today, respectively :) Sorry for the repeat!!
Cool! That's one of the best product on Mac market. I think, we already have today's product hunt's product of the day.
@graver_ua Cheers Pavlo :)
Been using 1Pass forever but I'm kind of disappointed in this latest release. The browser based dialog that used to be minimalist and do it's job is now this massive window where functionality that used to be there isn't. Not thrilled with this update.

@arlogilbert I have to agree with this. The browser extension used to be much more minimalist. It would really only show you relevant information for the site you are currently on. You could search also to find an item that might exist but isn't registering for the current site, but it was small and unobtrusive.
The newer-ish update introduced "1Password X" in the browser (chrome had this for a while, pretty new in firefox) which is cool in many ways (i live the integration directly in the input fields, especially for suggesting secure passwords on a site you are registering for), but the popup box on the top of the browser now is basically the full 1Password experience. I don't quite know the difference between opening the full app and the extension now.
I like the addition that "1Password X" brought with the integration directly in the input fields, but i wish the top right menu item would open up the more minimalist menu in the older versions. I know i can have the full 1Password experience by opening it up using shortcuts with from Alfred or Spotlight. Most of the time i need the minimal box. THe full 1Password only needs to be opened up once a week or so and i like not dealing with the extra stuff of the full application every time i get a password.
Been a happy and loyal user of 1Password for years. It's one of the few pieces of software I never hesitate to recommend paying for to everyone I know. Your online security is worth it!
Great job!! 😊 Looking forward for an integration with IOS app and windows 10 password version to open up with an Touch ID from iPhone ,is it possible?
@ayush_chandra that's not something we've done just yet, but it's something we are interested in doing!
Finally switched over to the subscription model. The 2FA integration is by far the biggest time saver in this version.

Been a fan of 1Password for a long time, so obviously... I had to try 1Password 7 as well.
Well... so far, not good - lol.
It imported all logins 3 times, meaning every password shows up 3 times in the list. I'm sure support is able to figure it out, could be just a minor bug.
Other than that - looking good!
Wilco de Kreij
Hmm - ever since I updated, all items are there 3 times. Mailed support 3 days ago - no response. Would've expected more :)
My advice: stick with 1Password 6 until the initial bugs have been solved.
I've been using dashlane from its beta stage, tried some other password managers but they all missed something, thus i stayed with Dashlane. So Let me ask you a direct question here, how 1password is better than Dashlane??? Could you show the comparison??
Literally the only password manager worth considering on Mac

Nice! Liking the update.
My only feedback is the close button on the sidebar everytime you hover over the sidebar. It's really annoying to see it pop up every single time I'm on the sidebar. After a while I get. I will never ever close the sidebar, but it keeps animating the button in. Slightly frustrating :)
Just as I said yesterday. 1Password deserves to be the product of the day. Cheers guys!
Plse return to browser extension ability to search in suggested items. If you have about 30 accounts in one website you need fast filter in suggested items, but if you start filling search line, 1password extension switches from suggested to all base. It's very annoying.
A release note can be short.
Please 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 create short, succinct product and feature release descriptions.
It's great to see you are enjoying your product but it's really annoying to have to work oneself through the extensive prose each time. Instead of letting 1pswd look smarter it merely seems to obfuscate the work you have done and makes it difficult to get an idea of what has changed.
For reference https://www.appcues.com/blog/release-notes-examples
@hellotom THIS. It shouldn't take 20 minutes to read through the release notes of every update.
How is this better than LastPass?
@mileung would be keen to see an updated comparison versus LastPass also - including any migration tools and methods available
