After years of waiting, 1Password 8 is officially available for Windows 10 and Windows 11. The new app features an intuitive redesign, safer code, dark mode support, new features, and a few other improvements that customers have been craving.
We got our first taste of 1Password 8 earlier this year when it entered public beta for Windows and macOS. The most notable improvement is the redesigned user interface, which now looks a lot more like the browser extension and has a cleaner sidebar. It looks better, works in dark mode, and is more intuitive than what we experienced with 1Password 7.
But from a user perspective, the 1Password 8 update is more about speed than looks. The app’s improved search function and simpler editing tools make it easier to find or change passwords, and a new quick access function lets you find passwords even when the 1Password app is closed.
This is a much more intuitive design.
1Password 8 offers improved suggestions.
1Password now supports Windows Hello in the browser and will soon support Windows Hello logins even after system restarts.
The new 1Password update also offers improved Windows Hello support. When you restart your PC, 1Password will remember, and the 1Password browser extension will now support Windows Hello (if you also have the desktop app). In the future, Windows 11 computers will be able to access 1Password using only Windows Hello – no passwords are required.
Under the hood, 1Password is now running in the Rust language, which is incredibly fast and has been recognized for its security. The 1Password 8 app has some new security features, the biggest change being the new Watchtower dashboard, which now allows you to recover deleted passwords.
There are tons of other small improvements to 1Password 8, including a new password sharing tool called Psst. Download the update from the 1Password website today. Unfortunately, the macOS version of 1Password 8 isn’t ready for an official release just yet, although you can download a public beta (scroll down to Feeling Adventureous).
