Popular password management software 1Password has received a major update today for its browser experience. Headlining the new release is Touch ID integration, dark mode, and a new experience for saving and editing credentials.

1Password shared all the details in a blog post today, leading with support for Touch ID, Windows Hello, and even biometrics support on Linux.

Our #1 requested feature has been Touch ID & Windows Hello support. Now, if 1Password is locked and you have the desktop app installed, you can use biometric authentication to unlock faster than ever!

That’s great timing with the new iMac launching with the updated Magic Keyboard with Touch ID.

Another feature that will certainly be a crowd-pleaser, dark mode is here for 1Password in your browser 2.0.0.

If you stay up into the wee hours of the night like I do, you likely favor websites and apps that do dark mode well. This update brings full support for dark mode to 1Password in the browser—and it’s never looked better.

As for the other major changes, saving and editing credentials is easier than ever to use:

When the save window appears, you can instantly see everything that will be added to the new item. You can even adjust the contents and add tags to help you stay organized. In addition, our recently updated password generator will suggest passwords that fit the requirements of the website you’re on so you don’t have to worry about the details if you don’t want to.

1Password will automatically update to the newest version of the browser build for existing users. For new users, you can try out 1Password for free.
