1Password’s 2FA needs work

I’ve used 1password on my iPhone, MacBook Pro and iPad Pro for years now, and generally it is a good password manager. I noticed last week that two-factor authentication was available and decided to enable for that added protection on my passwords. What a mistake that ended up being.

The process of adding was simple enough, enable via the website account, then store the one-time password in an authentication app, in my case it was Microsoft Authenticator. This worked no problem, however, when I would go to access 1Password on my iPhone and enter this one-time code I would be repeatedly asked to enter the code, sometimes three times before it would accept and let me into the app; a poor implementation if you ask me.

I’ve decided for the time being to regress and remove 2FA from my account as it was just too frustrating to use given how often I’d open the app. Hopefully they look to improve for the future.
