1Password v6 and lock times

jeffcjeffc Member

1Password v6 only allows a lock time of up to an hour.

Can it be longer (much longer), like up to a day? Or, minimally, 480 minutes (like 1Password v4)?

At work, my screen locks aggressively (corporate policy), and I rather not enter my unlock password over and over during the day.

1Password Version: 2016.6.300d
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Not Provided
Sync Type: Not Provided


  • My question as well. Use it on my personal computer (imac) at home and it keeps asking for login too frequently. Should be good for the day.

  • Auto lock happens when there were no mouse, stylus, touch or keyboard events inside 1Password window for the specified duration.

    As a workaround you may want to try to set it to "Never" - in that case auto lock is turned off, but you can still lock it yourself.

    Hi guys,

    Just to expand on this, we do plan to go further with the auto-locking system for the desktop app. Right now, it is a bit limited as we're just starting out with this new app but we'll keep improving and adding more features.
