Autofill doesn't work on Ecosia Android app

I recently discovered ecosia.org and started using their Android app. It seems to be Chrome underneath. The 1Password autofill doesn't work on this browser though. While it does on other browsers that use, it's failing only on the Ecosia browser.

Does anyone else run into this issue? Android 9 here. And, latest version of 1Password Android app.

    Hi @arunsathiya. I've installed the Ecosia app to test this on my end, and I'm able to fill here. Are you having trouble filling on any sites in particular? Also, if you launch 1Password and go to Settings > Autofill, are both Autofill and Accessibility turned on?

  • Thanks for testing! I was testing on GitHub. The accessibility feature is not enabled at the moment, while autofill is - what's the difference between the two?

    Hi @arunsathiya it looks like this may be behaving slightly differently between devices, as it's not working on my device either (also Android 9). I've created an issue for us to take a look at adding support for it :)

  • Thanks for testing as well, and for looking into this further!

    In the meantime, could you share the difference between autofill and accessibility settings, please?

    Sure thing!

    As of the current version of 1Password (7.3.2), Autofill handles filling in most browsers and all apps (also offers to save in apps). To use Autofill you need to have a device running Android 8 or later.

    Accessibility handles filling in browsers which don't support Autofill. Which is currently Opera and Edge (and Brave, though we're testing it with Autofill in the current beta). And, on devices running Android 7 or earlier, it handles filling everywhere.

    So turning them both on should cover all your bases, but if you don't need it then I'd leave Accessibility turned off.

  • Thank you! This is helpful info.
