AgileBits has updated its flagship password management app for the Mac, 1Password, with support for the Touch ID and Touch Bar features on 2016 MacBook Pros.

Touch ID must be enabled from 1Password's Security Preferences menu, but will then let people unlock the app with a quick fingerprint scan. Touch Bar support should make it easier to run searches, add new items, and switch between vaults as well as lock them down.

The first MacBook Pro shipments have yet to arrive, but 1Password is part of the first wave of Mac apps with Touch Bar compatibility to be approved by Apple.

1Password has also been upgraded with a new first-run experience, designed to be simpler whether people are signing into an existing account or opening a new one. It should also be easier to search through vaults using third-party apps, one of the first apps updated for this being Alfred.

1Password for the Mac costs $64.99, and requires OS X 10.10 or better.
