1Password 2.9.16 is now available

1Password takes care of all your online passwords so you can use strong and unique passwords for every site and never forget any of them.

Version 2.9.16 contains a new WiFi Sync feature that makes it both easier and even more secure for iPhone and iPod touch owners to bring their personal data on-the-go. The new sync feature solves firewall conflicts and provides manual workarounds for several issues that may arise.

The new version allows users to unlock their Agile Keychain from the command line. Further, an improvement to 1Password’s auto-update feature prevents user data from being accidentally deleted by application uninstallation utilities.

Complete changelog

  • Added new Wi-Fi sync implementation (Sync > Sync using Wi-Fi) to work with 1Password touch 2.0. You can continue to use the Sync > Sync to iPhone menu item for the current version of 1Password touch until 2.0 appears in the App Store.
  • Added Wi-Fi Sync Conflict Resolver window to easily identify and resolve conflicts when they arise.
  • Added 1Password.app/Contents/Executables/lock1p utility to lock Agile Keychain from the command line. This is very useful for locking the keychain using ‘launcher’ applications like QuickSilver and LaunchBar.

  • Simplified Unlock Keychain window in the browsers.
  • Now showing application help in the web browser instead of using Apple Help.
