Since most of my blogs are about the Windows version of our products, you may be surprised to learn that I’m actually a devoted Apple fan! I have a MacBook, an iPhone, an iPad, and I even eat an apple a day.

And so, I thought I would prove my Apple fangirl credentials by looking at how to configure 1Password in Remote Desktop Manager for Mac. Here are the simple steps:

Create your 1Password Entry

1. In Remote Desktop Manager, click New EntryCredential Entry1Password.

2. In the General side menu, enter a name for your entry.

3. Click on the 1Password side menu and add your 1Password Username, Password and Secret Key. You can also enable the option Always prompt with list if you wish to be prompted with your 1Password list of credentials when connecting. Then click Save.

2. Click on the wheel under your entry. You’ll be prompted with your 1Password credential list. Select the credential you want to link to your session, and then click OK.

And that’s it. Ah, the joy that is 1Password and RDM working together on a MacBook. It’s like beautiful, geeky poetry!
