1Password extension for Microsoft Edge now available in the Windows Store

If you're a 1Password user, you've had to endure quite the wait for an extension to arrive for Microsoft Edge. However, it appears that wait is now over. As first spotted by Windows Bog Italia, the 1Password extension for Microsoft Edge is now available for everyone in the Windows Store.

This comes nearly a year since Microsoft first announced it was working with the 1Password team to launch a preview extension for Insiders. Throughout that period, 1Password developer AgileBits has frequently kept users up to date with its progress. According to AgileBits, the initial release cleared the approval process on October 3.

The extension works much as you'd expect if you're already familiar with the various password managers on the market. 1Password lives as an icon to the right of the address bar in Edge, giving you easy access to your passwords, secure notes, payment cards, and more. When browsing the web, the 1Password extension can automatically fill in your login information, identities, and credit card information with one click. A password generator is also on board to create strong passwords for sites you visit.

If you're eager to give it a shot, you can grab the 1Password Edge extension on the Windows Store now. Be aware that, in addition to the extension, you also need to have 1Password for Windows version 6.7 or newer installed.
