1Password is one of our favorite password managers around, and after rolling out its big 1Password 7 update to Windows and Mac, it's now time for the Android app to share in on the fun.
As soon as you update to 1Password 7, the first thing you'll notice right off the bat is the new UI. A bottom navigation bar now provides quick access to your Favorites, Categories, Tags, and Settings — things you previously had to open the hamburger menu to use. Speaking of the hamburger menu, opening this now shows a new vault launcher where you can switch back and forth between your vaults in you have more than one.
If you go to the Categories tab, you can now press and hold on multiple entries to favorite, copy, or delete multiple items at once. When you tap on a single entry, the view for it has been updated so that the most important info is now more readable and easier to understand.
When it comes to creating passwords, 1Password 7 includes a new Strong Password Generator that allows you to create memorable/easier-to-remember passwords that are still plenty secure. Similarly, Watchtower is also integrated into the 1Password Android app to alert you if you have a weak password, one of your online accounts has been compromised, or if a password is expiring soon and needs to be changed.
Other goodies with 1Password 7 include the ability to upload documents from your Android device, Autofill support for DuckDuckGo and Brave web browsers, your most-used logins now being shown at the top of the Categories page, and more.
1Password 7 is rolling out as a free update to the Google Play Store now. If you don't see it quite yet, 1Password says it should be available for everyone in the coming days.
