search by website name

In the 1password application, is there a way to search items by their saved website name? Currently, when I search an item, it seeks that just among their 'name' field. If I do not remember the name assigned to a saved password, then I wouldn't be able to find it by just knowing the stored website name.

    @hd_ali: Yep! For example, I have a login for saved as "AAA", and searching for either the URL ("") or name (just "aaa") works. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • Is there a way to search by url? For example. I have a login that has for website1 and for website2. When I type "xfini" then nothing appears in the results. But "comcast" does make it appear since it's stored under that name.

    I'm using the 1Password web interface.

    @gordonchil: Not in the web app, no. It searches only by major fields like title and primary URL. If you set that as the first URL or add "xfinity" to the title you can find it that way.

    Alternatively, the desktop apps have more advanced search, like searching all fields, so that can help too. Cheers! :)

  • This happens to be within a virtual machine running linux, so I can't use the desktop app. It's only the web app that I can use. But I look forward to improvements that you'll make to the web application. Thanks!

    Hi @gordonchil,

    Are you able to install browser extensions in Chrome or Firefox there? If you are, please give 1Password X a try and let us know if it works better for you:
