1Password X on Safari

I know you've responded about it being more difficult to get this working on Safari.

I just want to know if you researched this any more? And also voice my desire to get this for Safari so you can get an estimation of how many people want it on Safari!

    @Tanax: Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately it's not a matter of difficulty. Safari simply has comparatively poor extension support. It's just not possible with what's available now for us to do there what we're able to in Chrome. So unless Apple has some big exciting announcements in this area in the future, Safari will not get 1Password X. Fortunately though if you're using Safari you don't need it; we've already got a great native app for macOS, and a desktop browser extension that allows that to integrate with Safari. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • @brenty I thought Dave said it was possible, just a lot of work?

    I love the macOS app and the existing Safari extension - but the 1PX looks so darn cool and it appears to have better support for handling login forms/updating passwords. Maybe this is incorrect?

    Or is the "only" advantage of 1PX that you don't have to download the standalone app? Rest of the features are the same as existing extension?

    @Tanax: I'll let @dteare correct me if I'm wrong, but even if that's true it would likely have to be rewritten from scratch to fit within Safari's limits...and at that point I'd argue it's no longer 1Password X at all, but something else entirely. I think it would be better for everyone if Apple just gave Safari some love, as that could help with 1Password, our desktop extension, and also anyone else out there developing for and using Safari. :)

    You'll get no argument from me. 1Password X is darn cool! It's kind of a mixed bag though because there are things we cannot do there (yet?) which are only possible with a native app. We'll see what happens in the future though. ;)

    Of course it's awesome for users who are in situations where they cannot use our native apps: alternative OSes like Chrome OS and Linux, businesses that restrict software installation, etc. There are also a lot of advantages for us with something new built from scratch, like 1Password X, since we can try new things and potentially bring them to the desktop extension and/or borrow things from there as well. We'd love to hear about the specific things you're looking for, even if 1Password X cannot work in Safari for the foreseeable future.

  • @brenty Thank you for your reply! I'll wait for a confirmation from @dteare then!
    As to what specific things I'm looking for, I'm mainly looking for these two features:

    1. 1Password "button" inside the actual input field instead of having the extension button at the browser's navbar (both for filling and saving new passwords/suggesting new passwords)
    2. Support for two factor authentication passwords

    If these can be brought to the regular Safari extension, I don't have a need for the 1PX on Safari :) Editing items more smoothly inside the browser extension like 1PX, while nice, is not necessary since as you said, I have the native macOS app for that!

    Of course an updated design of the existing extension would always be welcome, 1PX looks amazing!

    @Tanax: Sounds good! Dave's in meetings with a bunch of folks this week working on some cool new (non-Safari, sorry!) stuff this week though, so I'm afraid you're stuck with me for a bit. But I promise I won't bite. ;)

    I appreciate knowing that's what you're looking for. Personally, I'm a huge fan of the keyboard shortcut. But I suspect if we can bring that to Safari in some form we will — whether that be 1Password X itself, or updates to the desktop extension. Thank you!

    Support for two factor authentication passwords

    This is interesting because we actually get a lot of requests to bring the desktop app/extension's automatic TOTP copy feature to 1Password X. Have you tried that? I can't say I have a preference either way though; they're both useful.

    Totally! It's really helpful to get a sense of what you're looking for. I think there are a few different ways we'll be able to delight you in the coming months. :)

    I couldn't agree more. You may want to take a look at the 1Password for Mac version 7 beta in the coming weeks. ;)

    I've used the 1P7 beta and have since changed my mind. I don't really need anything from 1PX other than the inline 1P icon :)

    Started using it now. It's amazing! The copy feature I mean. No need for the 1PX features! :)

    Looking forward to more refinements to the 1P7 safari extension over the near future!

    @Tanax: Noted. Glad you're enjoying the beta. :)

    Haha I hear you. As we continue to work on both though, I'm sure we'll take the best features from each and add them to the other where we can. Cheers! :)
