Allow websites to request access to your location in the 1Password browser.
Photos
Save photos and videos in 1Password.
Local Network
Use the WLAN server to sync standalone vaults.
Camera
Scan your Setup Code or QR codes to use 1Password as an authenticator for sites with two-factor authentication. Or take a photo or video to save in 1Password.
Face ID
Unlock 1Password with Face ID.
Siri & Search
Show the 1Password app and item and vault names when you search from the Home screen.
Notifications
Show notifications for one-time passwords, Watchtower, and changes to vault access on your Home screen, Lock screen, and in Notification Center.
Background App Refresh
Keep 1Password up to date in the background, so you can access items created on other devices when you use AutoFill, the 1Password for Safari, or search from the Home screen without opening the 1Password app.
Cellular Data
