1Password and Touch ID on the Mac

Hi there
I had been using the 6.X client up until a few days ago. After a couple of years (likely more) I decided to get on board and in the trial stage of a subscription.

Two years or more ago I suggested that the Touch ID unlock on the app be allowed as soon as the app was in focus rather than have to click once to "tell" 1Password that you want to unlock and then proceeding to place your finger on the Touch ID key. Pretty simple and a better experience, right?

The older app also allowed you to lock the app from the top as it had an icon with that function. Gone from version 7. A backward step?

1Password Version: 7
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: 10.14.5
Sync Type: Not Provided

    Welcome to the forum, @fborraccino! I'm not sure I'd characterize any of what you're describing as "a backward step," though I can see different perspectives on it. At this point, I doubt we'll be changing things back to the way they used to be in earlier versions, but stranger things have happened, and I'll certainly mention your wishes to the development team. :)

    Any thoughts on Touch ID being able to unlock the vault without having to tell the app first I want to unlock with Touch ID? It's not something that was ever possible to my knowledge.

    I'm not entirely sure I follow. When I launch 1Password if I then put my finger on the Touch ID sensor it unlocks. I don't have to click anything other than the 1Password icon to launch the app.
