Special 2FA on mailbox.org


2FA usually works with a username/password response challenge and then asking for the 2nd factor in seperate field, page whatever.

The German provider mailbox.org uses 2FA in a sperate way. First you have to define a PIN code in the settings, e. g. "1234". Then you activate 2FA, scan the QR code with 1Password and turn on the OTP feature.

When you're going to login at mailbox.org you have to enter

  • username
  • PIN+2FA-code (in one field, instead of th password).

Username: e-mail.address[at]mailbox.org
Password: 1234847362
(1234 = PIN, 847362 = 2FA-Code)

Can 1Passwd handle this automatically?


1Password Version: 7.3.1
Extension Version:
OS Version: 10.14.6
Sync Type: 1Password

    Hi @wkwi!

    No, due to mailborg.org using the password field as a password and 2FA code at the same time, 1Password cannot handle this automatically for you: it will be able to fill your username and password for you as usual, but you will have to manually copy the 2FA code and append it to the password field.

  • Thanks for your reply. :)
