AgileBits has released the latest version of 1Password for iOS, and it includes a new feature that will serve as a major convenience for anyone who uses the app to manage two-factor one-time passwords. As of version 6.8, which AgileBits has codenamed ‘The Picnic Edition’, one-time passwords will now auto-copy to the clipboard whenever you use auto-fill.

Here’s a look at the full list of changes:
- One-time passwords now copy to the clipboard automatically whenever you fill an item that has a one-time password.
- The ability to create vaults has arrived for 1Password.com accounts.
- Item creation and modification dates now appear in the item details.
- Korean localization returns.
As you can see, the change log for version 6.8 isn’t very lengthy, but the adoption of auto-copy for one-time passwords will serve as a significant time-saver. It will end up potentially saving users multiple steps — re-authenticating with 1Password, tapping the one time password, selecting copy, switching back to the app you wish to authenticate, etc.
I also appreciate that we can now see timestamps relating to item creation and modifications. This makes it much easier to troubleshoot potential issues and/or correlate changes, a feature that the current macOS version already enjoys.
What do you you think about the version 6.8 update?
