1Password Launches New Feature to Speed Up Third-Party Logins

1Password's "sign-in with" tool will save your credentials for third-party login services like Google and Facebook.

Password management service 1Password is bulking up its features with a new addition: Users will soon be able to use the tool to instantly sign into websites through third-party services including Google, Apple, and GitHub.

The feature can cut down on user confusion over which third-party service they've attached to which website login.

Plus, it can bolster security by expanding the websites that 1Password is used for, ensuring that none of them are fake phishing sites masquerading as the real thing.

What the New Feature Does

1Password's “sign-in with” feature will save your login credentials for a handful of big online platforms that are commonly used as quick ways to sign into other websites. These include Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, or Okta in addition to Google, Apple, and GitHub.

Writing in the announcement blog post, Senior Product Manager of Authentication Travis Hogan explained it with an anecdote about trying to log into Spotify.

If you can't remember which third-party service you first used to sign up for Spotify — Apple, Google, or Facebook are all options — you'll wind up wasting time just guessing or resetting passwords.

“Luckily, I can avoid the guesswork simply by using 1Password in my browser to log in, because it now remembers how I signed in (or signed up), even if I used a Google, Apple, or other account to do so.” -Travis Hogan

1Password isn't resting on its laurels, even though it has plenty. In addition to this new feature, the service is adding passkey support in early 2023.

The service was valued at $6.8 billion earlier this year, making it among Canada's most valuable tech companies. We agree that it's worth the price tag, too — our research team ranks 1Password among the best out of all the top password managers on the market today.

Staying Safe Online

With cybersecurity concerns on the rise amid a new wave of remote work, staying safe online is more important than ever. There's no way to guarantee complete security, sadly, but password managers are one of the fastest and most simple layers of extra protection that you can add.

1Password and any other tool worth its salt will flag any unknown websites before you enter your credentials, ensuring that you won't fall for a fake website that's fishing for your personal details.

In the past, we've covered fake Zoom websites and Microsoft PowerPoint hacks, but the right tool can help you stay out of the headlines yourself. Here are the best brands to consider.
