1Pal: a new jailbreak tweak for saving 1Password’s master password to the Keychain [updated]

I know, I know. It’s very stupid to use any tweaks with something as crucial as 1Password. I know, I know, it’s identity theft waiting to happen.

Not exactly. 1Pal is a new jailbreak tweak that works in tandem with existing Touch ID tweaks like BioLockdown. It allows you to save the Master Password to iOS’ keychain for quick logins. Since the 1Password app itself is protected with Touch ID, the process is innately secure. The only real way this poses a security issue is if someone gains access to your fingerprint. Not impossible, but not exactly likely either.

At the end of the day, 1Pal is an awesome tweak for 1Password users. If you’re like me and you use 1Password each and every day, you’ll find 1Pal to be a real time saver.

Remember, you must have a Touch ID enabled device for this to work. Right now, only the iPhone 5s features Touch ID. Have a look at our video walkthrough inside as I showcase how it works.

‘PassIt’ allows you to open links directly within 1Password

As a newly converted 1Password user, it’s always been sort of an annoyance to have to create a javascript bookmarklet in order to quickly open a website within 1Password’s interface. If you happen to be jailbroken, however, this procedure just got a lot easier.

PassIt is a new jailbreak tweak that adds an “Open in 1Password” option to Safari’s sharing menu. Yes, it’s basically just a glorified javascript bookmarklet, but it’s much easier to use, and it looks great too.
