1password X questions

Hi, I'm currently evaluating 1Password X as a long time user of the full license. It's nice, but there are a couple big things I miss:

First, X doesn't seem to support touch ID. Is that right?

Second, I still have to unlock it even if my desktop app is already unlocked. Is there no way to share "state" in terms of whether I've already authenticated?

I'm using 1Password X v 1.16.2 on Chrome. On MacOS I'm using 1Password 7.3.2.

Thanks!

    @anthonygiuliano: Thanks for getting in touch! :)

    First, X doesn't seem to support touch ID. Is that right?

    Correct. It operates entirely in the browser, so it does not have any OS-level features itself.

    Second, I still have to unlock it even if my desktop app is already unlocked. Is there no way to share "state" in terms of whether I've already authenticated?

    Related to the above, since 1Password X is designed for people to be able to use it without a 1Password desktop app, it is is completely separate from that.

    However, you can use the companion 1Password desktop extension for that functionality:

    You can download it here:

    And we're also working on allowing 1Password X to integrate with the desktop app as well (currently in beta). I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)
