1Password for iOS got a big update today. Version 5.2 for iOS, aka the “awesomesauce” edition, brings a slew of new features, including the ability to provide two-factor codes.

The company built a new login creator that makes it easy to add hundreds of supported accounts with pre-filled information. You just select from a list and add the details that specific service needs, making it much easier to add accounts on mobile.

1P-iOS-OTPFor paid users of the app, a new one-time password feature allows you to use 1Password as your code generating app for your two-factor services. Many people already use an app like Google Authenticator to do this, so the addition may mean you no longer need a separate app.

The update for 1Password is live in the App Store, so grab it now.
