1Password Accessibility with Samsung Internet not working on Android Oreo 8.0

On my old Samsung Galaxy S5 on Android 5.1.1, the Autofill with 1Password pop-up comes up automatically on Samsung Internet when username/password fields are detected on a webpage.

On my Galaxy S8 on Android Oreo 8.0.0, the Autofill with 1Password pop-up does not come up at all on Samsung Internet, even with Autofill turned off to force it to use Accessibility.

I’m not talking about the known issue with Samsung Internet where the correct login cannot be identified because Samsung Internet is masking URLs. I’m talking about the Autofill with 1Password pop-up not coming up on Samsung Internet on Android Oreo 8.0 with the Accessibility feature the same way it comes up on Pre-Android Oreo 8.0

Why is the 1Password Accessibility feature not working with Samsung Internet on Oreo 8.0?


1Password Version: 7.1.3-BETA-1
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Android 8.0.0
Sync Type: Dropbox - opvault

    To add to my post above, I discovered it's seems a little more serious what's really happening on Android Oreo 8.0 with the filling function. Saving function was not tested.

    With 1Password Autofill turned off (Use Accessbility) > "Autofill with 1Password" pop-up comes up on Google Chrome and Firefox, but not on Samsung Internet.

    With 1Password Accessiblity turned off (Use Autofill) > "Autofill with 1Password" pop-up does not come up on any of the tested browsers, Google Chrome, Firefox, or Samsung Internet

    In conclusion, it seems 1Password Autofill for filling does not work on Android Oreo 8.0, it was 1Password Accessbility all along doing the filling. And 1Password Accessibility does not work for some reason for Samsung Internet where it was working fine Pre-Android Oreo.

    @johnny808: Thanks for getting in touch. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with Samsung Internet, especially if it worked for you before. Unfortunately it isn't something we support, and honestly we don't have any way of knowing what they might have changed in Oreo(?) to break accessibility, nor is it something we can fix for them. Are you able to upgrade to Pie? Maybe they've improved things there (or fixed a regression). Otherwise you'll have a better experience using a browser with better support for Android standards like Autofill and Accessibility. The latest version of Firefox has support for Autofill with 1Password for Android 7.1 or higher, and Chrome is compatible with Accessibility filling. :)
