Safari AutoFill Suggestion Order

edited May 17 in iOS


Almost all my logins in 1PW have at least two entries - his and hers - and sometimes more. When using Safari AutoFill, one entry will be shown and suggested for AutoFill with a single tap. Additional taps allow me to show all entries and select one.

Is there some way to make a specific entry the suggestion default? i.e. so I'm only tapping once most of the time?

I used to think it was suggesting the first entry based on login name alphabetical order, but I don't believe that's actually true. It seems random.

    @ings: As far as I know, no. That's all handled by the OS, and frankly I'm not sure how it determines the order and what is shown right away or hidden behind the overflow menu. All apps (like 1Password) do is "vend" URL, username, and password combinations to iOS and it does the rest. The only thing that works for me is pruning my logins for sites so there are fewer, but that's not always an option obviously. Sorry I don't have have something more to suggest.

    I figured it was likely iOS determining this. Inconvenient, but not the end of the world! :-)

    Thanks for the quick response.
