The popular password manager 1Password has been updated with one of the most-requested features: the ability to edit entries within the browser extension, 1Password mini, rather than having to use the main app.

It also promises much better matching of logins to subdomains, so that your stored logins should work more of the time. Previously the app would often fail to recognise subdomains as being part of the same site, so automatic login would not be available when you jumped straight to a particular section of a site, forcing you to login manually then create a new entry.

AgileBits describes version 4.2.1 as “a huge update with over 30 new features,” which are detailed below the fold … 

We’re great fans of password managers (you’ll find our how-to there) – the risks of using a single login for multiple sites are just too great – and 1Password is one of our favourite apps.

The latest version is available for immediate download on AgileBits’ website, but has not yet been approved in the Mac App Store (it will most likely appear there within a few days).

Full Changelog:

1Password mini

  • You can now edit items directly within 1Password mini!
