Can I use my Apple Watch to unlock my 1Password Master Password? or do I need to type it in every time? thanks

    Sadly, we can't do this yet, to the best of my knowledge Apple has yet to release the required API's we would need. Even if they released it today, we would need to develop and test it. Perhaps one day. I, too, hope to see this feature.

    If you have a Mac that has Touch ID, you can use that to unlock.

    @ag_tommy Take a look at https://outercorner.com/secrets-mac/. They've had Watch unlock for a long time. And it's awesome.

    No doubt, others have been able to make use of the watch in some respects. Anything we do must be done carefully and with due regard for our customer's privacy, protection, and our exacting standards. That's not to say others have taken shortcuts. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and if we can't do it right, we will pass until we can do it right with all the needed chess pieces in place.

  • I just installed a program called Royal TSX (shareware), which is a program that techies use for SSH, SCP, telnet, VNC, etc. One feature it has is to protect embedded credentials via Mac's TouchID feature, like 1Password. I figured this behavior was the same as 1Password, where if I enabled TouchID that I have to use my fingerprint on my laptop to unlock it. While this does work, to my shock, on my Apple watch it triggers a prompt for double tapping the side button to authenticate. This assumes my Apple watch is on my wrist and unlocked.

    Could 1Password behave the same way, where you could either physically touch the TouchID sensor OR double tap on a paired and unlocked Apple watch? I have to bend over to reach my laptop (use a wireless keyboard/mouse), so quickly double tapping my watch is way faster and easier than using a fingerprint or typing in my very complex and long master password.

    I didn't know applications could trigger an Apple watch authentication prompt, but was aware of it coming in Catalina to certain OS security prompts.
