1Password has quickly become one of the most popular password management tools on the planet. The developers have recently updated the iOS app to bring even more functionality to the table.

On Monday, January 26, the developers behind 1Password released an update to the iOS app that saw it bumped up to version 5.2. With the new software, the app now features a new log-in creator tool, new entry fields explicitly made for Pro users, and a one-time password management tool that’s built specifically for two-factor authentication.

With the new log-in creator tool, 1Password says that the feature will make it even more streamlined to log into popular sites, and it’s available for all 1Password users. As far as the one-time password tool, 1Password will generate a random log-in credential for a site with two-factor authentication. This one-time password generation is only available for Pro users, though, which means either a $9.99 in-app purchase with the iOS app, or through the $49.99 purchase in the Mac App Store for the Mac version.

The Mac 1Password app was also updated, bumping the version up to 5.2. With this latest software, the new app has been fused with improvements to sync, geared towards the iOS app. That means that Mac users will be able to sync their secondary vaults to the iOS app now, as long as they are connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Other additions are meant for Pro users, giving them the ability to add even more details to some items, including dates and addresses. Within the item editor option, 1Password Pro users can now remove attachments.

As noted above, the iPad and iPhone 1Password app is free, with a $9.99 in-app purchase that will unlock the Pro options. The Mac app is available for $49.99.
