fingerprint + master password

So, I've seen on some screenshots that you can change your master password from your Android phone, as long as you have fingerprint authentication active, but after, for some reason, being unable to use my master password on other platforms (browser and Mac OS), I can't see the option on the Android app.

Right now I have access to all of my passwords, but only on my phone, not on my desktop, which isn't practical at all.

1Password Version: 6.6.1
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Android 7.0
Sync Type: Not Provided


  • still a valid question, but I got my Master password back working again.

    Hi @lemos. Thanks for reaching out! Can you let me know how you're syncing between your Android and Mac? Are you using a 1Password account or a third party service like Dropbox? If you're using a 1Password account, you won't be able to change your account's Master Password from the Android app. Instead, you'll need to do so from Changing the Master Password from Android will only work for a standalone vault.

  • I am using a 1Password account. Thank you.
