Access 1Password Data in Windows via Firefox Apps
1Password recently introduced an iPhone export function that provides on-the-go access to sensitive data. This is accomplished by creating an encrypted bookmarklet in Safari, which is in turn synchronized to your iPhone. However, Firefox recognizes this bookmarklet as well -- meaning that Windows-by-day users no longer have to suffer without their critical logins. To get your data into Firefox:
  1. In 1Password, click on the Sync to iPhone icon in the toolbar and choose an access code for encryption. (This will create the bookmarklet in Safari.)
  2. Switch to your Safari bookmarks, where you will find a new item called 1Password. Right-click on it and select Edit Address from the contextual menu. This is the data you need to get to Firefox; copy it into an email or text file.
  3. Get it onto your Windows machine. (Easiest method: email it to yourself.)
  4. Finally, create your bookmarklet in Firefox. Name it what you want (1P suffices for my needs), and paste this long string into the Location field. Select 'Load this bookmark in the sidebar.'
Firefox now has a secure, functional bookmarklet with your passwords and other data available. More info and screenshots can be found in this blog post.

Or get an invitation to the my.1password.com service and it will always be online and as current as your last sync from 1password! (btw, that's how I logged onto here from work)

True: I'm sure my1Password will be a killer service. I haven't received my invite code yet though so I can't comment.

Has anyone gotten this hint to work successfully? I was able to get it to partially work. I get the login screen, followed by broken code. I did a direct cut and paste, so I don't think it's me.

Safari for Windows?
Authored by: leamanc on Feb 20, '08 09:00:09AM

Couldn't one also just use Safari for Windows?

Safari for Windows?
Authored by: dbyler on Feb 20, '08 09:09:31AM

Safari on Windows can't handle the bookmarklet -- at least, not for me.

It will, however, open the html export from 1Password, so if you want to carry that on a thumb drive or email it to yourself, that will work -- you just won't have the sidebar convenience of the bookmarklet in Firefox.

Just curious how secure this is...
Authored by: jiclark on Feb 20, '08 12:59:01PM

Has anyone looked into just how secure this feature is? I don't know about you, but I have way too much sensitive info in 1Password to feel comfortable about this until I'm darn sure that it's really secure!

FYI, Safari is truncating address field selections to 32,000 characters – too short for some 1Password bookmarklets. I added a workaround to the original blog post (it essentially entails moving the bookmarklet to Firefox (Mac) before copying the address field).

Another option is to export data as an encrypted HTML page:
File > Export All > Web Page

Access 1Password Data in Windows via Firefox
Authored by: Sam777 on Mar 14, '09 02:26:29PM

Umm. How does one get 1Password onto either Safari or Firefox on a Windows Machine?

These instructions don't work, there is no toolbar:

In 1Password, click on the Sync to iPhone icon in the toolbar and choose an access code for encryption. (This will create the bookmarklet in Safari.)

Switch to your Safari bookmarks, where you will find a new item called 1Password. Right-click on it and select Edit Address from the contextual menu. This is the data you need to get to Firefox; copy it into an email or text file.

Access 1Password Data in Windows via Firefox

This is one way that I've found to work for me.

1. Get Dropbox (www.getdropbox.com) installed on the Mac(s) and Windows machine(s) that will sync folders from your Mac and Windows.
2. Configure your 1Password to save the keychain file in the DropBox folder
3. In the DropBox folder, 1Password will save all passwords to 1Password.agilekeychain folder
4. In that folder, you will find a file called 1Password.html
5. By opening this html file from Safari for Windows (Firefox will messup the formatting), you'll get access to all of your password.

Hope that help.

BTW, I am using 1Password (free version). No edit to your posts here?
