How to Install 1Password in Ubuntu via Its Official Repository

The 1Password password manager now adds officially Linux support. Here’s how to install it in Ubuntu 20.04 via its apt repository.

1Password is a password manager developed by AgileBits Inc. It provides a place for users to store various passwords, software licenses, and other sensitive information in a virtual vault that is locked with a PBKDF2-guarded master password. By default, this encrypted vault is stored on the company’s servers for a monthly fee.

1Password is available as the containerised Snap package. If you feel OK with snap, skip this tutorial and install the password manager from Ubuntu Software.
