1Password Desktop App for Linux Is Available For Download

1Password desktop app finally arrives for all Linux platforms. This is the initial version for testing and validation purposes only.

1Password is a popular password manager that provides a place for users to store their passwords and other sensitive information securely.

Now, the cross-platform password manager app, 1Password, has finally arrived for the Linux platforms with full native support, and currently in development preview.

This is the initial version for testing and validation purposes only. Therefore, you should not use its Linux development overview for production or enterprise environments.

As expected, the official release will be announced later this year with a long-term support, including new features and changes over the next few months.

On the backend, 1Password runs on Rust, a secure systems programming language that has made a lot of waves in the Linux community. For end-to-end encryption, it uses the open-source ring crypto library to meet both the security and performance expectations of Linux users.
