Using 1Password on the Android Platform

There is a way to view my passwords on the Droid. Below are the steps you need to take to get this working:

  1. Install Dropbox on the phone
  2. Export an encrypted HTML file from 1Password on your Mac to an easy location to your Dropbox. (If you follow this blog, you know that I have talked about using Dropbox for syncing files between your computers. If you’ve done that, you already have a 1Password folder on your Dropbox.) The export procedure will ask for a password to open this file later.
  3. On your Droid, open Dropbox and open the freshly created file (1Password.html). The Droid will ask you what application to use; choose “DB HTML Viewer”.

That’s it; now you have a 1Password web app on your Droid. At some point, I hope Agile will write a native app.

  • There’s an even easier solution now. The fantastic Dropbox team have modified the Android Dropbox application so that it now supports JavaScript. This means that instead of exporting an encrypted web page from 1Password, you can use 1PasswordAnywhere.When you double-tap the 1Password.html file, the pop-up window will have an option for DB HTML Viewer. Use this instead of the other, HTML Viewer, option to use 1PasswordAnywhere on your Android phone.

    I tried this on Bugless Beast v0.2.1 and it returns a blank page. The original method, however, works just fine.
