Quick Settings tile for opening 1Password autofill on Android

edited April 14 in Android
  • A Quick Settings tile where you can press and open a pop-up 1Password screen to search for a password to fill in the current app.
  • An optional alternative to the Quick Settings tile, which would be an always there autofill notification.
  • The pop-up screen can be the same used in Accessibility autofill but would be very useful if it has some other features, such as long-press for copying (since some fields can't be auto-filled) and long-press for reveal password (since some fields don't accept pasting).
  • It must be a pop-up screen drawn over the current app because some apps close the login activity when it loses the focus.

This is a very handy feature of Lastpass, which helps to fill every app, even the most obscure ones which have its own screen keyboard for example.

    @felipecassiors Thanks for your feedback. I'll pass this request on to our development team. In the meantime, if you're finding that the Autofill prompt isn't appearing when it should, try long pressing in the login field and tapping Autofill from the context menu.

  • In most apps autofill does work, the problem is Chrome based browsers (Edge, Chrome, Brave you name em) have issues with most password managers. I used to use the Lastpass quick setting tile button all the time in chrome to make the autofill prompt pop up when it wouldn't. This really is a much needed feature. It might be the only thing I miss about my switch from Lastpass to 1Password. It is very annoying ot have to switch to the 1password app to copy 3 fields because 1password will not pop up.

    @donatom3 Please make sure you have Accessibility enabled in 1Password's settings. Chrome and Chrome based browsers don't support Autofill, but we do support filling there by way of our accessibility service. On your end, it should look just like Autofill, but it works differently under the hood.

  • @peri I do have both accessibility and autofill turned on. The tile is a workaround for the times that Accessibility doesn't detect a field on a page. For example on some pages (I'll try to write down which but it's random) I will initially get thee prompt but if I mis click the prompt will not come back when I go back to the password or username field. Sometimes even force closing the browser and reloading the app doesn't help.

    I see. As you mentioned not being able to fill in Chrome based browsers, I thought Accessibility was disabled. Thanks for clarifying that.
