Advanced URL matching?

I am a current user of BitWarden, and I'm interested in 1Password, but there is a big feature of BW that seems to be missing from 1P. I have seen many support threads asking about how to get URLs to match in different strange scenarios. In BW, I can add multiple URIs to each login item, and each URI can have a matching algorithm associated with it. The algorithms are:

  • default
  • base domain
  • host
  • starts with
  • regular expression
  • exact
  • never

From what I can see, there are no such options in 1Password. Is this something that the team is looking into? I have attached a screenshot of what this interface looks like in BitWarden.

Here's the BitWarden documentation on this feature: https://help.bitwarden.com/article/uri-match-detection/

  • Hey, @natemara

    I see how that would be useful to have in 1Password, though I'm not sure how many of 1Pass users would actually use it.

    I have to say, I'm not a 1Pass team member, but I've read in other threads that changing the URL matching behavior is not currently something the team is focused on (or will be).

    It's not they don't see how it could be of value for some of us, but rather the confusion it may cause or just not being useful to the majority of 1Pass users.

    I know it's probably not what you wanted to hear... Hopefully, this clarifies your doubts.

    Hey @natemara 👋 Welcome to the forum. @arturoaubry's reply here (thank you for helping out the community :smile:) is pretty spot-on. This isn't something in the cards at the moment, but as the old adage goes, "never say never." Your feedback is appreciated, however; it's great to gauge interest of current or potential 1Password users, so thank you!

  • I would be interested in a feature like this too. Am migrating from Bitwarden as other features outweigh the negative of this lacking feature but it would still be good to have!

    Hey @pratnala ,
    You can add multiple URLs to a single login item, which would allow 1Password to autofill the credentials in all of these URLs.
    However, 1Password does not have the option to give each URL a role or a "special algorithm". If the domain of the website matches the domain that is stored in 1Password, then 1Password will be able to autofill there. Even if there is a subdomain in the URL or if there are prefix/suffix on it.

  • +1. Trying to use the same password for www.example.com, www.example.ltd and www.example1.company, and more, which changes frequently. A better url matching capability is really needed...

    Hey @aseaday ,
    The URLs you provided here as examples are completely different, and no advance matching would help in that case.

    Simply add all URLs to the same login item in new "website" fields and you will be able to autofill the same set of credentials in all of them.

  • Hi @Yaron , the problem is that this website changes its url all the time, for some reasons, but the url do follow a pattern which can be interpreted using a regex formula. Sometimes you visit an old url, www.example.com they will redirect you to www.example.ltd and the url matching won't work. You add the www.example.ltd to url matching today and tomorrow when you visit www.example.ltd or example.com they redirect you to www.example.xyz.

    Hey @aseaday ,
    That sounds like one crazy website. :)

    Websites should not change their base domain at any given time on a normal basis. They can add subdomains, they can add paths to their URL, but they should definitely not change their base domain. No password managers out there support it, not even the one that is built in your browser (like Chrome's autofill). It is dangerous as it is senseless.

    Imagine that a malicious 3rd party buys a .ltd domain with the same name of one of your most used websites, and tricks you into trying to log into it. 1Password will autofill your credentials there if we implement such a feature, and your credentials would be stolen.

  • @Yaron is there anything on 1Password's roadmap to have Bitwarden style URL matching options?

    Not yet @pratnala, but this is something our developers are aware of :+1:

  • +1 for that feature
