It is generally not recommended to use the same password for all the sites and services you use, because if a hacker were to get ahold of that password, all your accounts would be compromised. This is where password managers such as 1Password come in handy, where users can store and generate passwords without having to memorize anything.

Now if you’re a 1Password user on iOS, you might be pleased to learn that the folks at AgileBits has recently released an update for the app that brings about a rather convenient feature, which is the ability to auto-copy one-time passwords onto iOS’ clipboard. This means that this will save users the time and effort of having to do it manually, especially when it comes to two-factor one-time passwords.

According to the update’s changelog, “One-time passwords now copy to the clipboard automatically whenever you fill an item that has a one-time password”. The update will also bring about other features, such as creating vaults for your 1Password accounts, along with a bunch of other features that might not necessarily be applicable to you.

The update is now live so do head on over to the iTunes App Store to get your hands on the update if you haven’t done so already.
