1Password Restores Free-to-Use Local Vault Option in Latest Version of iOS App

1Password has restored the option for customers who originally purchased its iOS app to create a local vault during setup, after users queued up online to voice their frustrations with the fact that the option was silently removed in an update.

The Canadian password management service caused a string of complaints on Reddit and elsewhere earlier this month when a v7.3.3 update to the 1Password iOS app removed the free-to-use local vault option from the app setup process without alerting users to the change.

Withdrawing the option meant that users who reinstalled the iOS app for whatever reason could no longer configure a local vault on their device, even if they’d paid an upfront fee for the app or bought the Pro in-app purchase in the past for exactly this purpose.

The change meant that users looking to maintain local vaults on iPhone or iPad had to either pay for a 1Password membership, or sync their iOS device with a standalone vault created by 1Password for Mac or 1Password Windows – both of which require a subscription.

The good news is that 1Password has listened to user feedback, and the latest update, v7.3.4, restores the ability to create standalone vaults from setup to customers who had previously purchased 1Password 4 for iOS or the Pro Features in-app purchase.

However, for new users at least, there’s no longer any way to use the password management service without subscribing to a paid plan.

How to change your wallpaper on Android 10 in a few easy steps

Your phone wallpaper is something you’re going to look at almost daily. Why not make it look as good as you can?As an age-old feature in Android devices, you should know how to change your wallpaper. Whether it’s something you found online, a favorite picture you’ve taken, or something else, you can make it your background.Find out how to change your wallpaper on Android 10 in a few simple steps.How to change your wallpaper on Android 10Due to the massive variety in Android devices, the steps may vary from one device to the next, but it ultimately comes down to the following three fundamental techniques.The following methods were tested on a OnePlus 7T. Your mileage may vary depending on the OEM of your phone.First method: Long press the home screenThis is the super simple manner that works for a majority of devices. Like the heading says, all you have to do is long-press an empty space on the home screen.You might see options for Wallpapers, Widgets, and Home Settings. Choose Wallpaper.Next, you will have to navigate to which screen you’re looking to apply a new wallpaper to. In the case of OnePlus (used here), you can swipe left or right on the top half of the screen to determine if you’re on the lock screen (A lock icon at the top) or the home screen (where your apps will be showing).Based on this, you will have to select which one you wish to change first.From here, you have the option of browsing a variety of options. If you continue swiping to the right on the bottom, most phones come with preset wallpapers for you to use and choose from.Once you have an image you like, select Set Wallpaper at the top right of your screen to save the change.Swiping to the left in most cases will let you choose pictures from the gallery, or a gallery of shots captured by the respective community.At the end, whichever course you choose, you can easily apply the wallpaper and use it immediately.Here’s a video of what it all looks like once you get the hang of it.Second method: Through the phone settingsIf you’re unable to adjust your wallpaper through a long press, you will have to venture into the phone settings. Over here, look for anything that has the words “Display, Background, Wallpaper, Customization”.Most Android 10 versions have implemented search in the settings. If you can’t find it on your own, you can use the search function to make it easier.Third method: Third-Party AppsThis is another measure. If you would prefer, you can have an app do it. There is a wide variety of great wallpaper apps in the Play Store. You can take your pick, but some of my favorites are Google Wallpapers, Walli and Backdrops.With Google Wallpapers and Backdrops, all you have to do is browse an image you like, and the app will tell you whether you want to set the image as a wallpaper for your home screen or your lock screen and apply it for you.Walli can change your wallpaper at a specified frequency. It can change your wallpaper after a specified number of minutes, hours, or days.
