1Password recently pushed out an update for its Android application, updating its design and introducing a number of new features, The Verge reported.

Sporting a new Material Design Style, the updated app now includes fingerprint scanner compatibility.

It requires fingerprint scanner support from Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so only newer devices will be able to benefit from the feature.

In addition to fingerprint support, the app also added the ability to share passwords with teams.

LastPass, a competitor to 1Password, first supported fingerprint authentication on Android with the Samsung Galaxy S5 in 2014.
