AgileBits 1Password 7 Beta

AgileBits has released a public beta version of 1Password 7, previewing the latest update in the company’s award-winning password management solution. 1Password 7 gets a fresh coat of paint that significantly modernizes its look, with a dark-theme sidebar that shows all of a user’s vaults and allows for easy drag-and-drop between vaults, and even between different accounts. The update also provides tighter integration for users of 1Password’s cloud service, so you’ll be able to do a lot more in the app without the need to make a trip to your web browser. Vaults can now be managed directly from the sidebar, for instance, allowing the name, description and avatar to be edited from within the app or a vault to be directly shared with another user.

Notes in 1Password also gain support for rich formatting, incorporating Markdown support for adding font styles, lists, and even clickable links. The new version also adds nested tags and the ability to pop out any entry into it’s own free-floating item window, and includes the “Have I Been Pwned” service integration that AgileBits unveiled last month. Additional enhancements include a new custom font, Secure Enclave support for Touch ID on newer MacBooks, a built-in Safari app extension, improved performance, and a bunch of other enhancements. The 1Password 7 Beta is available for free to everyone with a 1Password membership, while users with a standalone license can get in at an early-bird price of $39.99 during the beta period.
