One of our favorite applications just got Touch Bar and Touch ID support.
AgileBits has released version 6.5 of its 1Password password storage utility. The new version now features support for the Touch ID and Touch Bar features on 2016 MacBook Pros.
Touch ID must be enabled from 1Password’s Security Preferences menu, but will then let people unlock the app with a quick fingerprint scan. Touch Bar support should make it easier to run searches, add new items, and switch between vaults as well as lock them down.
While the first Touch Bar-equipped MacBook Pro units have yet to arrive, this marks the first wave of applications supporting the Touch Bar hardware designed by Apple.
1Password has also been upgraded with a new first-run experience, designed to be simpler whether people are signing into an existing account or opening a new one.
1Password for the Mac retails for $64.99 and requires OS X 10.10 or better to install and run.
