Any plans to add complications to 1password for apple watch?

Adding complication to 1password would allow fast selection of app from a watch face.

    @gmaddry: It's something we may do in the future, but I have to be honest, you're only the second person I recall asking about it. My complications real estate is spoken for, and I'm not sure I'd want 1Password there anyway. Nothing against 1Password, but I keep things I use over and over again there, and things that can give me useful information at a glance (lowercase "g"). I'm not sure what we could do with 1Password besides putting the logo on the watch face. That's cool, but not as useful as other complications I've used. I actually have 1Password pinned to the Dock though, so it's still easy to get to and fast to launch. I'd love to hear more about how you use 1Password on your watch though, and how you'd like to in the future. Maybe there's something great we can do. :)

  • I may be using 1Password a little differently. I agree space is limited on a watch face and I too use it for things I go to often or want to see on the the face such as weather. But I use 1Password notes for lists I want to see on my watch as so far I have found 1Password to be the most reliable in updating the watch. For now I too have 1Password on the dock.

    @gmaddry: Cool. Even with the more established 1Password apps, I encounter people using them in ways I hadn't considered myself. But especially with the relatively new Apple Watch, many of us are still figuring out how it fits into our lives, so it's always cool to hear what others are doing.

    I will say that, generally speaking, 1Password isn't designed as a list app, so I'm not sure that this is a direction we'll go. But it's definitely good feedback, and something to consider. Personally, while there are a ton of cheap and free list apps out there, I use OmniFocus. It isn't cheap (it's much more than a list app), but their Apple Watch app is brilliant.

  • I have tried Draft and Toodledo and both were more than I needed for the simple list for groceries of 5 to 10 items. Also using 1Password reduces the number of apps on the watch as I would have it on for TOTP anyway. Also many of those other apps don't have a windows version or way to interface with lists created on windows that lets them out for me.

    Ah, that makes sense. Cheers! :)

  • I'd also love to see a complication (although I understand there's not a ton of demand for it). I have a login for a work account that I need to use multiple times per day, so it would be nice to have my TOTP at a glance. I'm currently using 2STP (linked below) to handle that, but it's mildly frustrating to need another app solely to handle that one code when I've already got 1Password. I know that from a security perspective, having a large complication that displays the 6-digit code for a given login would probably not be the ideal, but it would certainly help my workflow. I'd even be happy with tapping on a small complication to display a code (which is what 2STP does).

    As for using up another complication, I prefer the "modular" watch face, and I've set up a second modular face for when I'm at work so I can just swipe between my personal and work faces depending on where I am.

    @thejonbinder: Thanks for this feedback! Ultimately it sounds like the reason having a complication for this works for you is because it's a separate app. For 1Password to offer similar functionality, there would have to be very specific setup for the complication, potentially meaning you could only have one at any given time. It sounds like that would work well for you, I'm just not sure it wouldn't be limiting or confusing for others. It's definitely something we can consider though! :)

    @brenty OT: never heard of 2STP, but just read in the App Store description that it supports 6 to 10 digits TOTP; so even more than the 8 requested in another topic...

    @thejonbinder: Thank you for mentioning 2STP; apparently it supports HOTP as well. Would be great if I could use this to replace the MobilePASS (iPhone only) App! (Would love it even more if 1Password supported HOTP)

    BTW: the 2STP FAQ explains why a complication showing a TOTP code does not make much sense: a TOTP code changes every 30 seconds while a complication can only be updated less frequent than that...

    @XIII: Yep! :)

    I'd like that too. HOTP just isn't nearly as common as TOTP, and even that is not ubiquitous. I don't use TOTP codes every day. When I do use them, it's usually to login on a new device, and then it isn't requested for quite some time (or sometimes if I'm logging in from a different location). So, to be honest, if I had a use-case like this where I needed a code every day and/or multiple times a day, I'd actually prefer a dedicated app for that. Don't get me wrong, I love 1Password, but it does a lot already, and something like this gets a bit buried, since it isn't a common use case or 1Password's primary function. Food for thought.

    BTW: the 2STP FAQ explains why a complication showing a TOTP code does not make much sense: a TOTP code changes every 30 seconds while a complication can only be updated less frequent than that...

    Yeah that is a bit rough. If we do something with complications, it would more likely be a "quick launch" method to open the item in 1Password to view the TOTP code — especially since that might make it easier to view TOTP codes for multiple logins.

  • @brenty I figured my use-case was going to be pretty specific to a very small niche market, so I didn't have my fingers crossed. I would still love to see the quick-launch complication you just mentioned.

    Glad to hear it! Perhaps others may as well. :)
