Expiry Reminder

As an admin user for a few systems that has password expiration policy, it would have been great that 1Password stepped up the game and included an optional field to store a potential expiry that could be used to remind when the password is about to expire.

This feature could also cover credit card expiry (https://discussions.agilebits.com/discussion/86921/feature-request-automatic-notification-of-expired-credit-cards#latest)

I have seen this request has been asked for alot through the times on these forums, but unfortuneatly the request has been argued not to be of need (and mostly closed):

I don't think its an argument that having strong enough passwords, this feature is not needed and should not be considered.

As I point out, the reason for this feature request is that other systems we have to abide by, does set theese requirements on us, and it would be more logical the password manager we use keep track of this for us. Not all systems are nice enough to give an heads up the password is about to expire either.

The workaround solution about using filter to show the last changed entries does not fulfill this need. It will be cluttered with all other new logins created and really does not help on the need of getting a notification to remember to change it.
And the other workaround to manually add this in the calendar outside of the app, is way to tedious and completely goes against having a specialized application for managing our password.

Keepass have this already, thought without the notification part:

As a long time user of 1Password (and just moved over to your service just recently), I hope you seriously consider this feature request as it would make an major impact on the password manager usefullness.

    Thank you for the very well worded and clearly well researched post.

    We haven't written off that idea as something that we'll never do. In fact it's a feature that gets brought up internally relatively frequently. I personally think that it'd be a nice addition, as you mentioned... it's not necessarily because we want these expiring passwords, but we live in a world where sometimes those things are out of our control.


  • Thanks for confirming it has not been written off, and great to hear this has been brought up several times internally!

    I hope I hear more about this in the future :)

    Likewise, thanks for bringing it up. :)

  • I would add my support for such a feature.
    What I would specifically like is an easy way to monitor expiry of subscription type software, which as you know is becoming much more ubiquitous (whether I like it or not).

    Thank you for letting us know you'd like us to add remind feature. :)

  • Upvoting this. It would help me a lot with passport and credit card expiration 8-)

    In 1Password for Mac version 7, you'll see these in Watchtower:

    Cheers! :)

  • Does this mean we can add an Expiry Date field with a Date type to a record and Watchtower will keep an eye on it for us? I'd like to use this with SSL key/cert pairs that I store.

    No. Watchtower checks the default "expiry date" fields in its templates, because it knows what those are. When you create custom fields, they don't mean anything to 1Password; they're just there for your use. You could use, say, a Membership item though.

  • Great progress but I still wish Login/Password items could have an optional expiry date field as well (in addition to passport and memberships that already has it).

    To use membership item for Login items just to support this feature is cumbersome and a workaround I fear for future will be back and forth.

    Once again, thank you for your feedback @hawkin. We appreciate you bringing this up and I can see how this could be useful to you.

  • How can I to vote for this feature request?

    We don't have voting for features, as that would imply that features for 1Password are decided democratically. Customer feedback is one of the primary factors that decides what will get implemented and what won't, but it isn't the only factor, and so having "votes" would give an unfair assumption. But we'll certainly consider the fact that you'd like to see this as well. :)



  • Thank you @Ben
