convert ios password entry to login

I have had several occasions where I've used 1Password to generate a password, only to discover later on my phone the entry was never saved as a login. I can't find how to convert that entry to login by clicking the 'Edit' button. I couldn't even find a way to add the username field on the iPhone. Please help.


1Password Version: 7.0.6
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: iOS 11.4

    Hey there @dreh0615. It's not currently possible to convert a Password to Login in 1Password for iOS, but you can do so in 1Password for Mac via the Convert to Login button.

    Is there way to do it using the Web interface as a work-around? I'm in the same situation. Away from home which is where my computer is , and would like to use IOS ( iphone or iPad ) to convert the password record into a login record.

    Other options are
    1) wait until I get home to my computer
    2) copy pasted from password record into new login record.

    Hi @komrad

    I believe those are the options at this point. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    How is this possible? Still no "convert to login" in IOS?
    I'm curious, how does 1Password expect our workflow to look like? Please answer with reason.

    @Niclas Ullbrand:

    1. Type your username and password on the website
    2. Tap the "key" icon or "Passwords" and select "1Password..."
    3. Tap "Create Login" and save it
  • And when you can only save the password, you're scewed?

    Great...

    There's a reason that the convert button exists on the desktop...

    @Niclas Ullbrand: Can you give me an actual example of that? I've never known 1Password for iOS to only be able to save a password, but if there's a bug with a website we can look into it.

    There's a reason that the convert button exists on the desktop...

    Yep, because on the desktop there's a separate Password Generator, and when you use a generated password, the desktop app saves that in a Password item as a safety net in case you forget to save it in a Login. 1Password for iOS only has password generation as part of the Login creation process, so it doesn't have the other feature which necessitates the option to "convert to login".

  • So if you create the password on the desktop but use the mobile/pad and want to convert it, your solution is to go back to the desktop and convert it?
    Wow, that workflow is as smooth as the niagara falls.

    Correct.

  • I think it's safe to say that that solution is subpar.
    So can you please add an option to convert a password to a login?

    @Niclas Ullbrand I'll be happy to mention it to the developers. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. :)

  • Here’s another vote for this feature. An annoying and inconsistent product deficiency on iOS vs desktop.

    Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of differences between mobile and desktop, but over time that gap may narrow -- especially as the OS and hardware becomes a bit more "desktop-like". Cheers! :)

  • Another vote to adding this. Very annoying that it’s not possible.

    Thanks for letting us know it's something you'd like us to add to the mobile app in the future. :)
