Duplication between Logins and Password entries

I have 305 logins in my vaults. Additionally, I have accumulated 112 entries categorised as 'Passwords'. There is a close relationship between some logins and one or more Password entries.

I need to understand what these 'Password' items are. Often WatchTower draws my attention to duplicate passwords between a login and a password entry. I suspect the password entry gets created while registering for a site. Often there are several entries for the one site.

Can I just delete them?
This is not related to a specific version. They show up on my Mac and iOS devices. Some illumination on this would be great.

    Hi @antipole!

    Every time you use the password generator, the resulting 1Password items gets stored in your Passwords category for safety. If you then create a login item from that password, it is possible that a copy might remain in the Passwords category.

    If Watchtower is warning you about duplicate passwords, it should be safe to remove the password item if you already have a Login item using the same password.

  • Ah, so that's how they arise. Thanks for the clarification.
