Longer than 1 hour for auto-lock [Coming soon]

edited September 2016 in Windows Beta

Since migrating to the v6 windows beta, I am constantly being asked for my master password. I sit at my desk all day and it seems that every time I try to use the Chrome browser extension for a password, I have to enter my master password again! Very frustrating and given that I'm the only one at my desk for the entire work day I don't see why this is necessary? The old version (4) used to be much friendlier than this and it has become a major pain and very unsatisfactory.

    Hi @rickwheeler,

    The current beta build doesn't reset the auto-lock timer when you use 1Password mini, that's why it is locking more often. It only resets when you use the main 1Password window.

    However, stay tuned as this has been overhauled completely in the current internal builds and it will be much better soon.

    If you feel you don't need the auto-lock timer, you can turn it off. The app does offer never on one of the time options.

  • Ok thanks Mike that will do for now. I'll look forward to the next release :)
