Hi,
In some accounts, 1Password doesn't let me see and reveal the password and show me "DummyPass".
Any idea why it happens and how can I make it show me the real password?

Thank you

    Hi @ofirkaner‌,

    Thanks for taking the time to write to us :smile:

    Pressing the option key will reveal your Login's password in both 1Password and 1Password mini's detail view.

    Cheers!

  • Hi,
    I know this shortcut. the problem is that when I press the option key, then I get the "dummypass" instead of showing me the real password.

    look at the link for a screenshot: before - http://cl.ly/image/0u3E103S1u2R

    Honestly that looks like the password was saved as "dummypass" maybe during an experiment when you were trying to get use to using 1Password ?

    You might look a little further down on the login item and check the show previous passwords section. AFAIK there has never been an option to inset a dummy password. Thats the purpose of the hide reveal button.

    If no history is in the login item you can also try looking in the passwords section.

    Yep -- dummypass is what you have saved in the password field for that login. :)

  • guys...please give me some credit.
    this is not! the password. I tried to setup a new login for the specific site with a different password. 1password logs into the site with no problem but doesn't show me the real password!

    That may not be the password for the site, but it is what you have saved in 1Password for it.

  • I didn't !!!

  • I use 1Password for a long long time. this never happened to me before

    I meant no disrespect, I simply have no clue how long or familiar you are with 1Password.

    Might it be something with the site ? Might they have obscured 1Password from saving it somehow or replaced your correct one with a place holder type of entry ? I am not a developer so I have no clue.

    Maybe the correct one is saved in the password history ?

    Without providing private details can you provide a url for the staff to look at ?

    You would know better than I if such a thing would be possible.

    Did you try the suggestions from @thightower above?
