This could then lead to the disclosure of passwords or other sensitive data. To reduce the likelihood of this happening, 1Password apps and integrations are constantly checking whether they are communicating with the 1Password service. If they are not, they will display a warning message. 1Password users are encouraged to review the security settings in their 1Password apps and integrations, and ensure that only trusted connections are allowed. 1Password will now warn users when they are about to use an untrusted connection, so they can ensure their data remains secure. In addition to this change, 1Password will now display a notification when a connection is untrusted.
