iOS 11 QR Code Support


I just happened to scan a OTP Auth QR code using the Camera app on a device running iOS 11 and was surprised to see that iOS prompted me to open the URL in a third-party app called Digidentity.

Hopefully this is something that can be integrated into 1Password when iOS 11 is released?

The QR code which I scanned contained a URL beginning in: otpauth://totp/

  • @rgreen: I believe this already works, to some extent at least. I'm currently using 1Password 6.8.1 on both iPhone and Mac and am running iOS 11 developer beta 9 on my iPhone.

    I scanned the QR code from my Mac on my iPhone and it prompted me to open the 1Password app and took me to that setup page.

    This is a cool idea, folks. I'll take a look and see what it would take to get that added.

  • @MrRooni: Great! Looking forward to it! Will 1Password see a compatibility update for iOS 11 around the launch of iOS 11 or the new iPhones.

    I believe macOS is to be updated very soon too, perhaps September 20th or so.

    Hey there @AskAli. It's quite possible that you will see some 1Password news in the coming weeks, yes. :)
