Introducing 1Password 7.3 Beta for Windows
by Oliver Haslam on
1Password 7.3 for Windows is around the corner, and you can help us get it ready. There’s lots to look forward to, and we’re sure you’ll agree that this is the best 1Password that Windows has ever seen.
We’ve been working on this update for some time, and we want to make sure that it’s as awesome as can be. That means we’re still a few weeks away from the release of 1Password 7.3 for Windows, but if you want to test the waters and help us create something awesome, you can download the latest beta release right now.
Whenever you download 1Password 7.3 for Windows — beta or otherwise — you’re going to see plenty changes this time around. They all build on the strong foundations that 1Password 7 gave us earlier this year, and we wanted to give you a quick sneak-peak of what you can expect.
We think that you’re going to love 1Password 7.3 for Windows, and here’s why.
Now 1Password is even safer with the addition of “Unlock using Secure Desktop.” 1Password can now be unlocked in its own secure desktop, with no other apps active alongside it. This helps to prevent keyloggers from capturing anything you type.
We’ve greased just the right wheels to make sure no one ever sees “File in use” again. Our new installer gives us more flexibility when it comes to how 1Password is installed and will prevent any false positives from security solutions, too.
1Password 7.3 for Windows uses localizations for all item templates. That means that all of your item templates will be in your own language, including all new items you create.
Sometimes it’s the intangibles that make all the difference, and performance is a great example of that. Everyone wants their apps to be responsive and immediately available. We couldn’t agree more, and now 1Password 7.3 for Windows is faster and more stable than ever.
Watchtower is often the unsung hero of 1Password, but it gets the love it deserves in this release. Now, 1Password ranks Watchtower banners by their severity, meaning those items at the greatest risk will now be easier to spot, helping you see the wood through the trees.
Great news, with 1Password 7.3 for Windows, sync is now faster, smarter, and improved on all fronts. It’s plain sailing from here on out for all of you rocking standalone vaults.
This is just the tip of the 1Password iceberg, and there are many more improvements that have gone into this release, with even more to come. 1Password 7.3 for Windows is a huge update for us, and you can check out the full release notes for all the details. The overarching theme is a simple one — 1Password 7.3 for Windows is the same 1Password you know and love, but so much better.
Just like any other big software update, we need your help to make sure that 1Password 7.3 for Windows is as great as it can be. You can download the beta and put it through its paces. If you run into anything we should know about, hit us up in the 1Password Support forum. We’d love to hear your feedback!
