1Password for Windows does not fill fields in browser

I have the Windows version of 1Password installed. I also have the 1Password Chrome extention installed. However the 1Password app does not connect to the browser, so everytime I wish to fill in a password I either have to manually copy it from the application, or authenticate to the extension (effectively use the extension as a stand alone, seperate form the application). This is a pain since I'd like to use biometrics to open my vaults.

1Password Version: 7.2.581
Extension Version: 1.12.3
OS Version: Windows 10
Sync Type: Standard/Default

    Hi @seanw75,

    Thank you for getting in touch!

    It sounds like you installed 1Password X, our new extension that works entirely in your browser. Could you please install our standard extension instead and check if it works better for you? Our standard extension communicates with 1Password 7 app installed on your computer, so it should be unlocked automatically, if you unlock the standalone app.

    Let me know how it goes. Thanks!


  • Ah! Perfect thank you very much, that is exactly what it was. Good to know for future reference as well.

    I am having a similar problem that started just today. I have a completely different looking extension pop up and it it is not connecting to my vault. I got a message to update my 1PW (I started with V4 for windows) and ended up downloading an installer for V7. I'm not sure how to go backwards. I LOVE this product and have used it since you guys first launched the Mac product. I'm already dying without it!!!

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi @yainga,

    It sounds like you have two different versions of 1Password installed on your PC, so your issue is different. That is why I'd like to ask you to create a Diagnostics Report from 1Password app, where you have all of your data:

    Attach the Diagnostics Report to an email message addressed to [email protected].

    Please do not post your Diagnostic Report in the forums, but please do include a link to this thread in your email, along with your forum handle so that we can "connect the dots" when we see your report in our inbox. You should receive an automated reply from our BitBot assistant with a Support ID number.
