All this information is placed in the new ‘Safe for Travel’ safe. As soon as you leave, turn on travel mode and all other safes will be locked and removed from your devices. As a result, an outsider who gains access to your phone cannot see that you have turned on 1Password Travel Mode. The mode leaves no traces, so it simply looks like you only have one safe.

After you have passed the border and you have arrived at your destination, you can reactivate the other lockers via the website of the password service. Keep in mind that this new feature only works for paying users.
