Prompt to save new site/password AFTER login

Hi All,

Been using 1Password for a little while now, mainly with the standalone FF plugin.

Not sure if I have missed a setting but 1 thing I found useful about LastPass was that it prompted me to save or update my login info for a site after a successful login. This was useful if I was not sure of the old PW and needed a few attempts to log in, when it was successful, rather than having to log out and back in to get 1Password to prompt to save I could do it from a popup in the top right of the browser.

Is this something that I have missed and can enable? Or is it currently a missing feature?


1Password Version: 7.2.581
Extension Version: 1.12.1
OS Version: Windows 10 1803
Sync Type: 1 Password Native

    Hey @smbm! Thanks so much for taking the time to write in and share your concerns about the way 1Password X prompts you to save Login items.

    I understand that it can seem inconvenient to save your Login item before you're sure you've entered the correct credentials. Prompting you to save your Login item upon filling the final field in a login or sign up form is currently the most reliable way to ensure your items are properly saved with the correct URL and login form data. That being said, if you're trying out a number of passwords, once you have successfully signed into the site you certainly can edit the item from within 1Password X. Here's a handy guide that will help you do so: Find and edit items within 1Password X

    I hope this helped!

  • @smbm I would also prefer this order when saving the login.

    I don't know what what we're thinking of for future updates but we do have an issue filed so it is something we understand there is interest in.

  • +1 for this feature, as I attempt to get my parents to use a password manager. It's the only thing I miss from LastPass.

  • Hi @almir,

    Sadly I have no progress to report but it is still something I'm hoping we can improve on.

  • I'm just going to revive this thread because it's absurd to save a password **BEFORE **the website confirmed the credentials are valid. This was about the only thing LastPass did that was well ahead of 1P.

    This has got to be the most frustrating thing to deal with. I'm a UI/UX designer and I have several dozen test accounts to deal with on dev, staging and prod environments. The number of times I've mistakenly saved an incorrect password > logged in > had it be invalid > needed to log into 1P > find the item > edit > save > go back to website is now countless.

    I created an account on these forums only to share how absolutely infuriating this oversight is from an otherwise flawless product. Please, please, please AT LEAST give us the option to save it AFTER successful login. Doesn't even need to be default behavior but for the love of all things EFFICIENT, just give us the option.

    I'm begging.

  • Hi @hiimsnowman & @allawrence,

    I've noted your plea and hiimsnowman, I even quoted you a couple of times because you didn't mince your words when highlighting the flaws with our current approach. I wish I had something better to say, it is still something I do hope we can do better for all the reasons you've highlighted.

    Indeed, thanks for the feedback! But, to be clear, if your password wasn't accepted, you're not logged in yet; so you can save again before logging in, and if you're successful you're good to go. :sunglasses: 1Password X is designed to run solely in the browser. And of course in that case it can't do things outside the browser, like offer a persistent save dialog that you can interact with even after switching to a different page, by running at the OS level. But perhaps we can add more capabilities over time, especially as 1Password X gains the ability to integrate with the native apps as well. Cheers! :)

  • I use to have an extension called Passman (for Nextcloud) that was doing just this. You log in on a website, then on the next page it is asking you if you want to save the credentials (or update if they are different from what is currently saved). This is really missing in 1Password.

    I did not have any application installed beside the Passman extension.
