1Password for Mac is updated and brings compatibility with Big Sur and unlocking through Apple Watch

The popular password management app 1Password has just been updated in its version for Mac. Among the most important changes we find support for macOS Big Sur, as well as the possibility of unlocking our vault with a double tap on the button of our Apple Watch.

Unlock, redesign, and autofill

The new 1Password unlocking system, as we have already seen happens in other parts of the system, allows us to unlock our vault without the need to enter any password. A double tap on the side button of our Apple Watch is enough for the system to give us access to our saved passwords. Probably a minor change if we have a Mac with Touch ID, but certainly a big difference for the iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro or MacBook computers from a few years ago.

Keep in mind that to use this feature our Mac has to run macOS 10.15 and have a Secure EnclaveEither through the T1 or T2 version the security chip.

Along with this change, 1Password version 7.7 integrates with Safari to autofill more fields than before, such as credit cards or addresses. In this version Safari it also integrates with the virtual payment cards that 1Password offers in collaboration with Privacy.

Finally, the application receives a redesign of its interface in general to adapt to macOS Big Sur and a new password generation system. Of course, the icon of the app has a square format according to the rest of the system.

1Password, which is still free for users who at the time acquired the Pro version through integrated purchase, is one of the best apps to manage our passwords. We can download the update from the Mac App Store.
