1Password now lets you easily store crypto wallet details
A 1Password update brings a specific item type dedicated to crypto and digital assets to the password manager’s interface. This could make it easier to store details attached to your cryptocurrency wallet, although it’s usually best to store your wallet’s information offline.
The update brings a “Crypto Wallet” item — or a blank, easy-to-fill-in format — to the password manager. It comes with fields specific to the kind of information you’ll need to input, like your wallet address and recovery phrase.
While you could previously store crypto-related information in 1Password, the process wasn’t always that straightforward, as it required you to repurpose existing fields. For example, as detailed in a how-to on 1Password’s website, the company suggests modifying and adding fields within the “Login” item to make them suitable for your crypto wallet’s information, such as adding a separate section for your private key. When using the Crypto Wallet item, you shouldn’t have to toy around as much with new sections since they’re already formatted for the basic information you need to store.
