Stricting URL matching for subdomains ?

Is there a way to make URL matching more strict? It's quite annoying when it comes to sites such as that have many separate sites hosted as subdomains. For instance or I have numerous logins saved and going to any * site will show them all rather than the specific saved login for that subdomain. Any way to get around this?

Thank you!

    @timtam300: No, as is the same site in all of your examples; you're just accessing different resources. However, there are two things you can do to simply things for yourself:

    • Use the correct URL in each login item. For example, don't save in the login if you only want to use it for
    • Makes sure that "Allow filling on pages that closely match saved websites" is disabled in 1Password Preferences > Browsers. That will ensure that the exact match ( will be shown at the top of the list, rather than having all logins matching the domain ( shown as top matches.

    I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

    I'm not seeing that option in 1Password Preferences > Browsers. Has it changed locations? I'm a web developer and we often use URLs like,, etc. for all kinds of different clients, all of which utilize CMS's like WordPress and need logins.

    Hi @joshcoast

    We no longer offer such an option as it is the default/only behavior now. 1Password will always do what it did with that option enabled at this point. What seems to be the difficulty you're having with such sites?


  • I can second Josh's comment, in that when I visit one subdomain at my company's demo-url, 1password offers other subdomains and uses the term "close match" even though they are different except for the top/second level domains. I am on v7.3.684 and seeing this behavior.

    That is the correct/intended behavior, yes. It should list the closest match first, though.


  • 1password is broken with subdomains and does not match correctly. On our company network there are many different services running at many different subdomains. When you update a password for a site at one subdomain, 1password just randomly picks one of the other sites and asks if that should be updated. It doesn't try to match at all and its a huge hassle to have to scroll through 20 sites to find the right one to update.

    Hi @ColdBlue! Welcome to the forum!

    While 1Password will show you the list of all logins if they use the same domain, it should still show you the one with the correct subdomain at the top of the list. Is this not what is happening to you?
