Toronto-based AgileBits updates 1Password with Apple Watch functionality

Toronto-based AgileBits has updated its popular iOS password manager app to include support for the upcoming Apple Watch.

Once the device launches on April 24, users will be able to easily access any passwords they have stored on 1Password through their Apple Watch.

1Password Apple Watch use case

“You don’t need to be an intrepid inspector (or a precocious crime-solver in pigtails) to appreciate the awesomeness of having 1Password on your wrist. 1Password for Apple Watch helps you find the little pieces of secret info you need every day, quickly and easily,” says the company’s blog post.

“If you need the code to open your garage door, one of your one-time passwords, or to look up your credit card number while phoning in an order for pizza, 1Password is right there for you.

In order to access this functionality, users must have paid $11.99 to unlock the app’s pro features.

The update also adds several iPhone-related features, including the ability toggle whether 1Password’s in-app message centre has a notification badge for unread messages. Also packaged with the update are the usual assortment of bug fixes and performance improvements.

Version 5.4 of 1Password for iOS can be downloaded right now off the App Store.
