1Password Releases its Biggest Mac Update

Published

on

AgileBits has finally released 1Password 7 for Mac, and it’s the password manager’s first major upgrade for the platform in years.

The developer has made sure it’s worth the download (and your money) by packing in lots of new features, starting with a redesign of the 1Password mini. It can now suggest the log-in items you’re most likely to use while in your browser or within apps. If you want to access your vaults, you now simply have to click “All Vaults” on the redesigned sidebar to bring up an interface (see image above) where you can drag and drop log-ins to organize them or to create new vaults.

AgileBits has also bundled all of 1Password’s security tools together in a single section called the Watchtower. It can warn you of security breaches, highlight vulnerable passwords and check your credentials against Have I Been Pwned? database. If it finds any of your passwords on the website, a notification asking you to change it will pop up. Watchtower will also notify you if you’re logging into a service that has two-factor authentication you haven’t enabled yet and if you’re trying to log into an unsecured HTTP website.

1Password 7 comes with a lot of relatively minor features, as well, such as new fonts, the ability to use formatted text and notifications to warn you if your credit cards and passport on file are near their expiry dates. Plus, it was designed to load faster and use less memory than its predecessor. You’ll only get it for free, however, if you have an active 1Password subscription that costs at least $3 a month. If you bought a standalone license for 1Password 6, you’ll have to shell out $50 – $65 after the launch special ends, to purchase a license for the newer version.

Here’s the tech behind the magic: a combo of user images, text descriptions, and Meta’s powerful AI, Llama. “Take photos of yourself once, then imagine yourself in any setting from the forest to outer space,” reads the screenshot on WhatsApp. The way it works is in the Meta AI Chat: users can type “Imagine in…” or “@Meta AI imagine me…” as a text prompt. A user’s likeness will then be used to generate the personalized image.

While there’s no official release date yet, this exciting feature is entirely optional.

YouTube’s New Eraser Tool Now Removes Songs Without Ruining Your Videos

Published

on

Good news for creators! YouTube has rolled out a major update to its eraser tool, allowing them to effortlessly remove copyrighted music from their videos without sacrificing other audio elements like dialogue or sound effects.

In a recent video, YouTube acknowledged that the previous version of the tool needed improvement in terms of accuracy. This new iteration addresses that concern by utilizing an AI-powered algorithm that precisely detects and removes unwanted songs while leaving the rest of the audio intact.

However, YouTube’s support page advises creators that the algorithm might not always achieve perfect separation. As an alternative, creators can opt to “Mute all sound in the claimed segments,” effectively silencing any portions potentially containing copyrighted material.

Once the edit is finalized, YouTube automatically removes the content ID claim, a system designed to identify the use of copyrighted material within videos on the platform. This allows creators to proceed with their uploads without copyright concerns.
