Hi Really want to use Brave browser and 1Password but so far I can only get it to work properly with Safari. Im confused by the browser extension - whats the point of it? I used to be able to on older versions, just open 1Password click on the site I wanted to get into and it would autofill and take me straight into the site. 1Password for Safari is included with 1Password 7 and later and automatically updates with the app. Learn how to keep 1Password up to date. Get help if you can’t install the 1Password 6 extension in Safari on your Mac.
