Many websites require the use of insecure security questions. We’ve added a new field type for these, and pre-loaded them with some common questions. You can use one of ours, or edit the prompt. We have a password generator that is designed to work with common security question restrictions. I’m willing to wager a motivated adversary could track down the name of your first pet. They probably won’t guess “earring dawdle forage”.
We maintain signed apt and rpm package repositories for Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as well the Snap store. We also have a tar file for as-of-yet unsupported distributions. Let us know what distribution you use and how well 1Password works there.
We hope you are as excited about a 1Password Linux app as we are. To discuss this release, report issues, and talk with our development team, please join us in our Linux forum.

Howdy, everyone! It’s Monday, and that means….
Time for a new beta of 1Password!
This week is mostly a bug fix release. We’ve fixed quite a few annoying problems internally and fixed up some problems in the user interface. We have a gorgeous new About page. Using Control + S to save an item that you are editing now works again, you can add a tag to an item by pressing enter when you are done typing the tag, we improved support for authentication with Duo, and you can now copy an item to the same vault containing the original item.
Several users noticed that 1Password uses significant processor time when viewing an item with a one-time password. We tracked the problem to animation that we display next to the one-time passwords, so this week we replaced that animation with a greatly optimized version.
On DEB and RPM-based systems, if you install the stable release, your system will automatically track the stable releases. We expect to make a stable release of 1Password every one to two months, but we will continue to release the beta version every week. If you wish to track the beta channel, download from the beta page, instead.
Beta releases are more likely to have regressions than stable. At any time, you can edit these files again to switch back to the stable channel.
That is it for this week! See you again next week.
