About the message

Browser extensions include support for Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Brave and Safari. There's even an app, called 1Password X, that lives in your browser if you use Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Brave.

1Password 6.8 for Mac introduced a more reliable method for saving and filling in browsers called native messaging.

Native messaging improves the performance and reliability of the 1Password classic extension, especially when proxies, antivirus, and other security software would otherwise interfere with 1Password. If 1Password is unable to detect support for native messaging in your browser, you’ll see this message.
