Microsoft has announced that they are updating OneDrive on iOS to support password managers. Thus, iPhone and iPad owners can now sign into the OneDrive app on iOS automatically if they are using LastPass or 1Password. Here's what you need to do:

  • Launch OneDrive and sign in
  • Tap the icon in the upper right corner
  • Select your password manager (or enable them)
  • Log into the password manager

This feature is based on the new iOS 8 feature where applications can to talk to other applications via extensions. The four-step process is achieved by utilizing's Apple's new extensions API's. Omar Shahine, Group Program Manager at OneDrive, said the following:

The security of your OneDrive is really important to us. We’re continually working to make it easier for you to both keep your OneDrive secure while also making it easier for you to access. And that’s why I’m excited to share our latest update with you: OneDrive on iOS now works with your favorite password managers!

We know that it’s not easy to have good password hygiene. You’ve all heard by now that you should have a unique password per site, and that password should be comprised of meaningless characters, numbers, and casing. There’s no way that your OneDrive password is on this list, right?

Here at OneDrive, we’re storing your most important files and memories and we want to make sure the first line of defense is a strong one. That’s why we recommend strong passwords and two-factor authentication for an added layer of security.

Follow the link from below and download the latest version of the app on your iPhone or iPad to make use of the newest features.
