1Password has always been synonymous with storing your password details so you don’t lose them. What makes it remarkable is that you can sync the information across several devices. Well, the utility program has a new update that lets you store your crypto wallet keys with specific notes.
It’s not new for 1Password to store crypto wallet keys and any related information. However, it supplied predesigned fields that you could not change, which means you were completely restricted. With the new update, you can now alter field information for specific notes you want to keep.
Now you can place recovery phrases in 1Password in a format you need instead of placing them separately in a note app. You can also separate your login details and recovery key. In the end, there’s more flexibility with the information you want to store.
Of course, you need to be really careful with the details you choose to put in 1Password. If anyone gets into your phone or hacks your account, they’ll have access to your crypto wallets. It depends on how safe you are and whether you let anyone else handle your device.
If you have Solana-based tokens, there’s new support for Phantom wallets in 1Password. The app will identify if you try to create a section for Phantom wallets, asking if you want to link to it. Once you agree, you’ll see specific fields asking for the crypto details.
Overall, it’s a great feature to have if 1Password users have crypto wallets. It’s probably safer if you don’t own much crypto, but you should be more cautious with larger amounts.
