1password_6

The Android version of popular password manager 1Password has received a big update to version 6. In addition to a full Material redesign, the app now has support for Marshmallow’s fingerprint unlocking. The app made by AgileBits is free to download and premium features are accessible via a one-time in-app purchase.

To bring 1Password to version parity with apps on other platforms, the Android version is jumping to version 6 from 4.5.3. The most notable difference is a redesigned user interface that embraces the principles of Material Design. Every aspect of the app, including the lock screen, navigation drawer, and settings, has been given a nice Material refresh. Other visual refreshes include a consistent toolbar, refreshed category and settings icons, and a FAB to add new passwords and sites.

Version 6 also adds support for fingerprint unlocking on Marshmallow devices in lieu of manually entering a master password. Wi-Fi syncing between the internal and external databases has also been greatly improved. A full and more detailed changelog is available on their site.

All the app’s features can be unlocked for $9.99, otherwise there is a 30 day free trial of the premium features. The app is a free upgrade for those who have already paid.
