1Password gets significant updates to iOS, OS X


By

1Password 4.3 for the Mac App Store is a *massive update* that includes all the features from our v4.2 update for our website version. There's great new stuff here that you've been asking for, such as: updating existing items right in the browser when you change passwords, editing items right in 1Password mini, lots of new keyboard shortcuts, USB drive support, sync improvements, and much more!

These updates follow right on the heels of the massive Heartbleed vulnerability. I've been a big fan of 1Password for years and Heartbleed exemplified the problems of using the same password on multiple sites. Even if a site is secure, your account and information is compromised if you use the same credentials on a site that is vulnerable. Keeping track of all these passwords is a challenge, which is where 1Password comes in. The software also has great tools to help you keep track of old and weak passwords that may need updating.
