The popular password and security management app 1Password has already previewed its iOS 8 extension and Touch ID support for unlocking and accessing its content outside of its iOS app, and today AgileBits has announced its 1Password app extension for third party apps as you can see in the video above.

The feature is a great example of new ways developers can allow users to access their tools from more corners than ever before with iOS 8, and in this case 1Password is utilizing new tools from iOS 8 to help other developers build new capabilities into their own apps.

AgileBits has supplied documentation and sample code on GitHub for other developers wanting to integrate support for the app extension with other iOS 8 apps.

Thanks to Apple’s incredible new developer features in iOS 8, third-party apps can let 1Password fill Logins without the user ever leaving the app. Yep, complete with Touch ID for unlocking the vault. Yep, it’s this awesome.

How easy is it for third-party apps to get in on this one-tap Login goodness? Extremely! Developers: check out our 1Password App Extension on GitHub with documentation and sample code.

1Password is expected to ship its new version with its iOS extension, Touch ID support, and third party app extension support when iOS 8 ships to the public this fall. In the meantime, developers can check out 1Password’s GitHub for integrating 1Password’s extension for easy login.
