Digging around I learned of the automatically "unlock on secure desktop" feature setting. Which, from my reading, sounds like added security. Don't know why it isn't automatically set to automatic though.
I have it set to automatically open to "unlock on secure desktop". Though I've noticed after a timeout. When you click on the bottom taskbar 1Password tab to put in your MP. You see the "unlock on secure desktop" icon in the upper right of the screen like it would without checking the automatic "unlock on secure desktop" box in the settings.
I don't know if it has to work that way. But would be nice if it would still be set to automatically "unlock on secure desktop" after it times out. As I had that set to open up on secure desktop automatically, but it appears to goes back to manual mode after a timeout. So the automatic setting it kind of pointless if you have to manually set it to that most of the time anyways.
