Happy day, fellow bitizen!

Today I am incredibly excited to announce we're starting beta testing on a new addition to our 1Password family: a brand new Chrome extension made especially for our Linux and Chrome OS users!

We're currently in private beta testing and we'd love to have you join our beta family for an early sneak peek.

Even though things are pretty solid and working well, it's important to remember this is a beta. As such this isn't going to be for everyone (at least not yet), but if you love being on the bleeding edge, please email us at linux@1password.com and include your forum username as well as the email you are using with your 1Password membership.

Once we hear from you we'll grant you access to a private beta discussion group on these forums along with setup instructions.

I'm looking forward to welcoming you to our beta family! <3

  • What about integration with local vaults?

    Hi @timrijckaert

    Good question. :) 1Password membership is the way of the future, and so that is where our focus is. We don't have anything to announce with regards to additional functionality for local vaults at this time, but we'll be sure to post more info when we do. :+1:

  • Hi,

    I'm a long time 1Password user on Mac and recently acquired a Chromebook with Android app support. I have the 1Password Android app running and was wondering if the upcoming browser extension for Chrome OS will be able to communicate with it to support Autofill etc...

    Thanks!

    @omkarim: I don't think I'd rule it out completely, but currently the Android team is focused on making 1Password for Android the best it can be on that platform, and there's a lot of work that needs to be done there yet. Fortunately one thing we are working on that can help you is this new ChromeOS-compatible extension that you can use on your Chromebook. Cheers! :)

    Does this Chrome extension not require a "mini" counterpart? (unlike macOS & Windows?)

    @XIII: I think the answer to your question probably should be "no", but one might think of 1Password.com as filling a similar role in this case since it stores the data. Dave may jump in and correct me if this is a bad analogy though. :lol:

  • Hi there, very excited about giving this a go. After sending in a request to join the beta, about how long does it take to get access?

    Thanks!

  • Hey @beyer — I sent in an email a few days ago, but also haven't gotten a response. Would love to get in on the beta — pretty please with sugar on top?

    I'd like to join the Chrome OS beta program.

  • I've received the 1Password extension for Chrome, however it states the local program is required and this is where I'm confused. Where do I get the local Linux version of 1Password?

    @losojos: Thanks! We'll get back to you shortly! :chuffed:

    @benbot79: There isn't a "local Linux version" of 1Password. As Dave mentioned at the top, we have a ChromeOS- and Linux-compatible extension in private beta, and you're welcome to sign up to test that. Just follow his instructions above. Cheers! :)

  • Hello @brenty,

    I sent an email over. Thanks for all the work on this, by the way, really excited to join the beta!

  • brentybrenty

    @unget: Great! We'll be in touch! :chuffed:

  • I would like to sign up for the beta please !

  • Me please! Just got a Chromebook yesterday as a light-weight supplement to my too-heavy MacBook Pro

  • a brand new Chrome extension made especially for our Linux and Chrome OS users

    This is great news, and I look forward to this going GA for Chromebooks.

    But just to be crystal clear, as a Chrome extension this will only be for the Chrome browser. Folks using Firefox or other browsers on Linux will still need to use the web site. Correct?

    @NK_Herself: Ha! Mine is pretty heavy too. Maybe I should look into that. :lol:

    If you've emailed us as Dave outlined above, we'll get back to you there shortly. :)

    Correct. The 1Password.com web interface can be used in other environments. Right now we're focused on building this to be ChromeOS- and Linux compatible. Nothing else to announce at this point, as it's still very much a beta. Cheers! :)

  • Email you at what address?
