Enabling 1password & Is it safe to store your password in brave browser?


#1

Hi, I’ve just started using brave. I read there is a 1password extension for brave but can’t find how to enable it. Can you help?

And is it safe to store passwords in the browser like Chrome does. Thanks,

Hi @soblocks,

Which Brave version that you have?
:slightly_smiling_face:

Version 0.55.22 Chromium

Thanks for the info @soblocks

1password can be installed from Chrome Web Store, for now. Since this version already support for installation from CWS. :slightly_smiling_face:

cc @Mattches for your 2nd question.

@soblocks,
The built-in password manager uses encryption available on your OS (Win32 API calls for Windows, Keychain entries for macOS, etc) so for all intents and purposes, yes, your passwords are as safe as anything else leveraging your Operating System’s encryption.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks for getting back. If someone steals my laptop and hacks gets past the security password they will be able to access all online accounts that Brave has stored the passwords for. Is there another level of protection incase of this?
