Why 1password at Android seeks always https:

When trying to access the web sites from 1password in mobile (Android) why it is not able to access the sites if it is http but recommends only https

1Password Version: 7.3.684
Extension Version: 1.16.0
OS Version: Win 10
Sync Type: Local
Referrer: forum-search:https


  • Hi @venkatakrishnan,

    HTTP sites are not secure ones and the information you submit can potentially be seen and changed by others, that's why 1Password won't let you autofill in those sites.
    If the site you're using HAS HTTPS then you should update the link in 1Password and it'll work fine.

  • Thanks very much. I am aware of the security in transit for https sites but the question is not all sites have https and I do not remember to have seen any disclaimer that you can launch a site from 1password only if it is https.

    @venkatakrishnan Thanks for reaching out! I'm glad @Yulka1355 was able to pop in here to help a bit. :)

    That said, while we do have the 1Browser in place, we recommend you use another browser as your default. 1Browser isn't as feature rich as browsers made by browser developers. But I'll let our development team know about this issue so they can look into it.

    For now, I'd recommend switching to https where possible. You can also long press on a website from 1Password to open it in your preferred browser.

  • Thanks a lot Peri. So nice of you. Yes, I tried the long press and used the other traditional browsers to go to the sites. Truly appreciated.
