Android's 1Password now supports fingerprint unlocking


Emma Clark

The Android version of 1Password has been updated to support fingerprint unlocking, which is welcome news for anyone with a lengthy password.

The Android version of 1Password has been updated to add support for fingerprint scanners.

Up to now, the app only required you to type in a single password to log into accounts. Of course, if your one password to rule them all is lengthy and ultra-secure, that can be a pain. Now, you'll be able to log in using your phone's fingerprint scanner.

The feature is restricted to phones using Android Marshmallow's fingerprint support though, so those with phones running earlier versions of Android won't be able to take full advantage of the update.

The latest update makes the app look better, bringing it in line with Google's Material Design style, and also lets you share passwords with teams.
