Password managers have been on the rise in recent months. There are many managers available such as iCloud Keychain or the well-known 1Password. In fact, we talked about this a few days ago to tell you that Apple Passkeys were going to be introduced throughout 2023, those keys that were going to change the way you log in to websites and that Apple presented at WWDC22. 1Password is back in the news after announcing that they will allow saving logins to services using accounts. That is, they will store with which accounts (Google, Apple, Github, etc.) we access the different services to guarantee access to the services.
1Password will remember logins with third-party accounts
It is clear that making use of password managers like 1Password it has many advantages. Among them, greater security because we store our keys in the same place. We also have greater ease of use because from a single place we can manage logins. On the other hand, the portability of the keys is as simple as logging into the password manager on each of the devices. And finally, it also highlights organization and privacy.
1Password will incorporate secure Passkeys throughout 2023
1Password has decided to go one step further. And it has presented a new function that is added to the dozens already available. It is about the possibility of save logins using third-party accounts such as Apple, Google, Github, Facebook, Twitter or Okta. That is to say, when logging in or creating an account on a website we can do it through our email or using a third-party account such as Microsoft or Apple that “bridges” the registration allowing us to register with that login .
And this is exactly what 1Password is going to manage and store with its new function. Even if we work with several Google accounts, for example, we can select which account we want to log in with. This has been confirmed by 1Password through an example video where we can see the process in macOS, but which has promised that logins can be edited directly from iOS and iPadOS.
