  1. If you’re brave enough to use a beta password manager 1Password released an early access version of 1Password 8 for iOS on Wednesday, which brings a redesigned interface and new backend to iPhone and iPad users. The new version of the app, which 1Password says will eventually make its way to all its supported platforms, has been available in early access mode for Mac since August, and was released for Windows in November. As a longtime user of 1Password 7, the redesign was immediately obvious when I opened the beta version of the app. As far as I can tell, almost every icon has been changed to be a little more fun and colorful, and the interface feels more modern now. 1Password 7 1Password 8 The settings screen shows the difference between 1Password 7 (top) and 8 (bottom) very well. 1Password 7 opened to a favorites screen with a few recently used passwords. Other than marking or unmarking logins as favorites, there wasn’t much you could do to customize the screen. This was always a little frustrating for me, because I basically never had any use for the screen, and would immediately bounce to search. 1Password 8, on the other hand, has a home screen that lets you access things like your vaults, categories, and lists of recently created or modified passwords. You can also change it to fit how you organize and access your passwords — if you’re a big user of categories, favorites, and tags, you can move those options to the top. If you dump everything into one folder, you can hide everything but “All Items”. Some of the home screen items are collapsable lists. Image: 1Password The old (well, current) version of the app would let you know if one of your passwords had been compromised, and could alert you if the login you were viewing had a reused password, but there wasn’t a single screen that let you manage your overall security. The new version of the iOS app adapts the desktop version’s Watchtower section for mobile, which also gives you an overall security score. Watchtower brings 1Password’s full security checkup to the app. Image: 1Password There’s been some controversy around 1Password 8, after the company announced that its Mac app’s user interface would be powered by Electron (the web browser tech behind apps like Slack, Evernote, and Discord) instead of native code like SwiftUI or AppKit. Some user s worried that the change would make the password manager more resource-intensive to run, or that it would feel less like a real Mac app. However you feel about that change, it’s not really a factor with this iOS app, which 1Password has said uses SwiftUI for the interface, and Rust for the core. Of course, there are other reasons you may not want to use an early access version of a password manager. While it’s been okay for me so far, there will probably be a few bugs for testers to catch. If your phone’s password manager is absolutely critical to your work and / or life, it’s probably best to wait until an official release, especially since this update is a major change from the previous version. If you’re okay with increased odds of flakiness, though, and want to try the redesign for yourself as soon as possible, you can join the TestFlight using the link in 1Password’s blog post. You can now try 1Password’s customizable redesign on your iPhone and iPad
  2. Popular password manager now has the largest bug bounty program on Bugcrowd 1Password has announced that it has increased its top bug bounty reward for finding potential security flaws in its password manager to $1m. Not only is the highest bounty in the history of the IT security company Bugcrowd but it's also one of the largest rewards in the industry. CEO of 1Password, Jeff Shiner explained in a press release how the move will attract additional security experts and white hat hackers while also strengthening the security of its password manager, saying: "No one should have to choose between safety and convenience, and we're making this major investment to demonstrate our commitment to keeping 1Password customers secure. Increasing our bug bounty to $1 million will attract another layer of outside expertise to make sure our systems are as secure as possible. Together, we will deepen our security leadership so our customers can live their lives online with ease and confidence." Strengthening its platform 1Password regularly engages both external security experts and white hat hackers as part of its normal day-to-day operations in an effort to discover any blind spots in its platform. By expanding its bug bounty program though, the company will be able to enlist thousands of researchers to continue these efforts. Since starting its bug bounty program back in 2017, 1Password has paid out $103k to Bugcrowd researchers with an average bounty of $900. Although all of the bugs detected so far have been minor and didn't put any sensitive customer data at risk, the company was able to resolve them quickly which also helped reduce the risk of attacks. Besides its bug bounty program, 1Password conducts over a dozen external penetration tests annually and releases the results to the public. However, the company also has a Security Ambassador Program to train and develop security expertise in its development teams as well as an Eyes of the Month program that rewards employees who report the most impactful security issue of the month. Security researchers and others interested in getting started with the 1Password bug bounty program can visit the company's site or its Bugcrowd page. 1Password ups maximum bug bounty to a cool $1,000,000
  3. It adds a new section dedicated to crypto wallets 1Password can now store details attached to your Phantom wallet. Image: 1Password A 1Password update brings a specific item type dedicated to crypto and digital assets to the password manager’s interface. This could make it easier to store details attached to your cryptocurrency wallet, although it’s usually best to store your wallet’s information offline. 1Password now has dedicated fields for information related to crypto wallets. Image: 1Password The update brings a “Crypto Wallet” item — or a blank, easy-to-fill-in format — to the password manager. It comes with fields specific to the kind of information you’ll need to input, like your wallet address and recovery phrase. While you could previously store crypto-related information in 1Password, the process wasn’t always that straightforward, as it required you to repurpose existing fields. For example, as detailed in a how-to on 1Password’s website, the company suggests modifying and adding fields within the “Login” item to make them suitable for your crypto wallet’s information, such as adding a separate section for your private key. When using the Crypto Wallet item, you shouldn't have to toy around as much with new sections since they’re already formatted for the basic information you need to store. 1Password’s update also adds support for Phantom’s crypto wallet, which carries Solana-based tokens and NFTs. If you create a Phantom wallet and you have a subscription to 1Password, you’ll get prompted to tie your Phantom wallet password, wallet address, and secret recovery phrase to the password manager. Generally, experts advise that your seed phrase (the master key that unlocks your wallet), should never be stored on an internet-connected device — not even in a password manager — due to potential security risks; they recommend securely storing it in a physical location. But you could also argue that storing your seed phrase in a password manager is still safer than what some people who are new to crypto might do, like screenshot it or save it in an online document. Storing information in a password manager might also be more convenient for people who hold only a small amount of crypto and have a lot less to lose. 1Password now lets you easily store crypto wallet details
  4. 1Password 7.8 for macOS now runs natively on Apple Silicon Macs Since the introduction of the first Macs with the M1 chip in November last year, several macOS apps have already been updated with support for the Apple Silicon platform. Today, the popular password manager 1Password received a new version that runs natively on the new M1 Macs. The M1 is Apple’s first chip built for Macs based on the same ARM architecture that is used in iPhone and iPad chips. Although Macs with the M1 chip are able to run apps developed for Intel machines, these apps need to be emulated and translated through Rosetta — which can result in less performance and some bugs eventually. Version 7.8 of 1Password, which was released today for all users, introduces support for the Apple Silicon platform, meaning that the app can now take full advantage of the performance and efficiency of the M1 chip on eligible Macs. We’ve been hard at work on a bucketload of fixes and improvements to everyone’s favorite password manager in between episodes of WandaVision, The Rookie, and Ted Lasso. Additionally, in what will surely be the year of Apple Silicon, we are excited to announce that 1Password now runs natively on Apple’s latest processors and hardware. We’ve been unbelievably impressed at the speed and efficiency of the new Apple Silicon Macs and can’t wait to see what form factors roll out next. It’s great to see that developers are committed to updating their apps with native support for Apple Silicon Macs as, eventually, Apple will end up disabling Rosetta 2 technology. 1Password 7.8 for macOS is available as a universal binary, so users can download the same app and run it on both Intel and M1 Macs. The update is now available for 1Password users running the standalone version of the app that can be downloaded from its official website. The version available on the Mac App Store is expected to be updated soon. Source: 1Password 7.8 for macOS now runs natively on Apple Silicon Macs
  5. Tries to tempt penguins with Ring Crypto 1Password has unveiled a full-featured desktop app for Linux, written in Rust and using the ring crypto library for end-to-end encryption. The release features encrypted browser and desktop integration and, according to the business, "uses the Linux kernel keyring to establish a fully encrypted connection between 1Password in your browser and 1Password for Linux." The upshot is that if one is unlocked, so will be the other. "This is the most advanced browser integration for a password manager available in Linux," trumpeted the company. The beta emerged in October 2020 with support for tiling window managers and biometric unlocking. The release "is available for all major Linux distributions" via signed packages or Ubuntu's Snap Store. A .tar.gz download is on offer otherwise. 1Password is, however, not as open source as penguinistas might like, despite the company insisting that "many libraries of 1Password for Linux have also been shared back to the community, including an Electron hardener and secure defaults package." Alternatives include the likes of KeePass and Bitwarden (although the latter does charge does charge for some teams and enterprise features while still maintaining a free tier.) Yep, it's the non-freemium one 1Password is also not without costs of its own. Subscriptions start with a personal one at $2.99 per month (billed annually) although the company will dole out freebie accounts to the deserving: "If you work on an open-source team that needs a password manager, open a pull request in our 1Password for Open Source Projects repo and we’ll give you and everybody on your team a free account." Still, 1Password does have plenty of toys to attract those Linux Desktop users that sign up. There is integration with Secrets Automation, 1Password's take on the management of company infrastructure secrets, and Watchtower, which keeps an eye out for breaches as well as advising on weak passwords. And, of course, 1Password runs on a variety of devices. With 1Password projecting some impressive growth in Linux OS market size (to $15.6bn in 2027) the arrival of its app in fully featured desktop form is unsurprising. This is particularly so because users might be pondering alternatives to that other big beast in the password management world, LastPass. In February, Lastpass's owner LogMeIn - which has been owned by a private equity outfit since 2019 - limited fans of its freemium password manager to one device type only: computer or mobile. ® Source
  6. Like many or all users nowadays, I have too many passwords to remember, since I don't use the same password between services. I was looking for a service to securely store my passwords, and I have read in many sites about LastPass. I'm testing this service right now and it's awesome, really good, but, I can't help thinking how and where my passwords are being stored, who can access them, are the service/servers secure against attacks, if the service goes offline for maintenance or problems, how can I login in my accounts? And many others questions... So, I'm here to listen a word from you guys, services/tools like LastPass, KeePass, 1Password worth it?
