    @ronen: That's not something we can answer for you. You'd need to ask them. It sounds sort of shady to me though. Better safe than sorry.

  • Thanks.
    Just thought that if they can see my username and PASSWORD filled by 1Password ....

    @ronen: Certainly in nearly all cases, logging into a website involves sending it your password. One exception is 1Password.com, which uses SRP expressly to avoid ever transmitting credentials. I'm not actually aware of other major sites which do this. So I would assume that anything you enter there would be accessible to them unless they can demonstrate otherwise. There's certainly nothing stopping a website from collecting anything you enter when visiting it -- and most browser extensions have the ability to read that information as well. As a general rule it's best to only enter login credentials into the site they are for.

  • Thank you very much

    You're totally welcome! :chuffed:

  • If you use cashback site like extrabux, ebates, topcashback, you will need to creat an account on these sites, then you can shop through these sites and go to amazon or other stores. They would not see you account and password of amazon. Cashback sites only can see your account info on their sites, but not your account on other sites.

    I would guess that is probably true with reputable sites but we're not in a position to answer for them.
