1Password now has dark mode on Windows
With the launch of 1Password 8 for Windows, 1Password is getting its first major design update in more than three years today. This includes a new design with Dark Mode that better matches some of the recent UI improvements in Windows 10 and Windows 11. 1Password is also now built on Rust to improve performance.
The entire desktop app now looks like a web or 1Password browser extension interface, with updated item icons, expanded views for items and vaults, and a redesigned sidebar. There’s also a new quick search feature and improved search results, making it easier to find the login entry you need.
Editing entries is now much easier too, with the new password generator and the ability to add files directly to items. 1Password8 also includes a security question feature, in case there are still websites that require this type of login.
Under the new design, 1Password is now built on Rust which should improve performance and security. “You won’t see this change but you will feel it,” 1Password founder Dave Teer said earlier this year. “The app is incredibly responsive across the board, from unlocking to linking accounts to finding your items.”
If you use this dedicated 1Password Windows app with the browser extension, both will share a login status and you can also use Windows Hello to unlock easily.
There is a new 1Password 8 update Available now for Windows users, and is still in Early Access mode for macOS users.
