In an effort to protect your 1Password data from unwarranted searches when you travel, AgileBits has announced a new feature called ‘Travel Mode’, which is now rolling out to everyone with a 1Password membership. When you turn on Travel Mode, every vault will be removed from your devices except for the ones marked “safe for travel”.
According to AgileBits, your vaults aren’t just hidden, but are completely removed from your devices as long as Travel Mode is on. That includes every item and all your encryption keys. There are no traces left for anyone to find. So even if you’re asked to unlock 1Password by someone at the border, there’s no way for them to tell that Travel Mode is even enabled.
“In 1Password Teams, Travel Mode is even cooler. If you’re a team administrator, you have total control over which secrets your employees can travel with. You can turn Travel Mode on and off for your team members, so you can ensure that company information stays safe at all times. Travel Mode is going to change how you use 1Password. It’s already changed the way we use it”.
Travel Mode is available today, included in every 1Password membership. To learn more on how to use the new Travel Mode, click here.
