Expected behavior of 2FA/TOTP fields

Searching the forum, I've found a few discussions around this, but still confused about the expected behavior of filling 2FA fields.
Should 2FA fields be auto-populated or should the 2FA code be copied to the clipboard after a successful user/pass login?

    Hey @amblin,

    One-time passwords can be filled directly to the correct field when you fill a Login item. However, the majority of websites I see ask for the one-time password field on a new page after the login form. For these, you'll need to fill your login item on the second (or third) page where the one-time password field is located. For example here's how it looks to fill an example login item with a separate page for username, password, and one-time password:

    Filling one-time passwords in this way is a 1Password first, and we will be working to improve its reliability. If you find a website that isn't filling correctly, please let us know. You can always copy and paste one-time passwords by viewing the item details and clicking the copy button next to your generated password. Like so:

    I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any additional questions.

  • Ah ok. Thanks for that explanation. With 1pass(not chrome), and other password managers, when I fill a login/password form, the 2FA code is auto copied to the clipboard. Should this be happening with the Chrome extension or just this new way?

    @ambilin: 1Password for Chrome doesn't automatically copy one-time passwords to your clipboard at this time. Instead, we are working to improve our filling one-time passwords. If we can make that more automated and reliable then there should be little need for something copied to your clipboard.
