Developer AgileBits today pushed a brand new ‘Tricks Edition’ update for 1Password for OS X, its popular password-management that’s available across iOS, OS X, Android and Windows platforms.

Available in the Mac App Store at no charge for existing users, this particular update sports some interesting new options for 1Password’s data importer and includes a much improved browser extension that can now automatically name the login it creates, among other enhancements.

1Password is $64.99 in the Mac App Store.

As evidenced by the screenshot top of post, 1Password’s data importer has seen some improvements in version 6.2 update, making it easier to import your information from other password managers for the Mac, including LastPass, SplashID and other.

As for 1Password’s browser extension, it now fills your information more accurately than before thanks to an enhanced brain that powers it, and it’ll now try to automatically name the website logins it creates.

“We’ve also improved the way 1Password for Mac and Families and Teams (oh my!) work together, the way 1Password mini behaves, and more,” developers wrote.

Other changes in this release include making 1Password mini faster and play better with multiple active Chrome profiles, the ability to restore existing data from iCloud when you’re setting up 1Password on your Mac and more.

For other changes, check out the full release notes for 1Password 6.2 for OS X.

    Best money ever spent.

    • :D

      Dude, I was just about to comment that this was one of my best purchases lol

    I can sync with iCloud now. That’s nice, I don’t need Dropbox anymore.

    • :D

      I think it’s better to use Dropbox since then you can access your vault from other devices by logging onto the Dropbox website

      • Julio M.

        That’s valid. I’m on the fence about it, but I’m on the fence about Dropbox Pro at the moment, I have Google Drive with 200GB, and don’t want to shell out the $99. Maybe in the future, I do use it at work, except that Dropbox syncing is blocked so I have to manually download the password. It’s complicated since the password was generated using 1Password lol.

        Why only use one? I sync my 1Password stuff to Dropbox, but still keep the bulk of my user generated docs on Google Drive (except the spreadsheets on OneDrive which Excel likes best). There is no need to tie yourself to a single web storage provider, and lots of reasons not to.

        As long as my iPhone is with me, I don’t think I will instal 1password on other device other than my main computer(laptop).
