1Password Releases Password Management App for Linux

1Password has launched a full-featured, password management desktop app for Linux. 

1Password for Linux, which is written completely in Rust, lets users secure credentials across devices and seamlessly manage infrastructure secrets through the Secrets Automation tool.

The app offers encrypted browser and desktop integration and is available for all major Linux distributions, including Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, Arch Linux, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It's also compatible with other distributions through a standard .tar.gz download, the announcement states. 

“While 1Password can be utilized by anyone, business or individual, we have seen a real need for robust Linux support—outside of just the browser—in DevOps and IT teams in larger organizations," says Jeff Shiner, CEO of 1Password.

According to the website, open source teams can get a free 1Password account by opening a pull request against the 1Password for Open Source Projects repo.
