At 1Password, we’ve always worked hard to help you secure your digital life. You can use our password manager to safely store and access logins, passwords, company credit cards, email addresses, and other identity information.
It’s also a great place to keep copies of important documents – everything from birth certificates to real estate records – the list is endless.
And today, that list got a little bit longer with the addition of a brand new item type with distinct fields to help you store and track health-related information. Introducing the Medical Record, available to all 1Password subscribers.
Add a title, date, practitioner’s name, and anything else you want to save. We’ve included some default data suggestions and, like other 1Password item types, you can add custom fields and remove others as you see fit. It’s all incredibly flexible and practical – and that was the goal.
New features and item types aren’t born out of think-tank brainstorm sessions in far-away company offices. We listen to our user base and then build software to help make their lives a little simpler. We believe this human approach changes the way our password manager is designed. And the new Medical Record is no exception.
Our Customer Support team received countless user requests for a specific place in 1Password to keep COVID-19 vaccination information. We liked the concept, but didn’t want to stop there. We set out to create a new item type that was as versatile and accessible as possible, without compromising security.
We want you to be able to pull out your phone during a doctor’s visit, quickly and easily search, and access your vaccination record, or any other medical information you’ve saved.
We want you to be able to share certain details about your health (if you’re comfortable sharing them) with family members or loved ones, in the event of an emergency.
We want to be there, to help make things a little easier right now, the best way we know how – with security and convenience in mind. It’s been a difficult fourteen-plus months, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
