What can you use to filter out which logins are also used for Android App passwords?

Hi there.

I guess what I am asking for really is if 1Password could somehow tag/register that a saved password is also used for an app on your device. For example I can see that these type saved passwords have the URL "https://undefined", but when you do a search for them (be it on a browser or the app) with the word "undefined" is not filtering out the results. So perhaps you could develop something where you can see that the password was captured for an app. That, or perhaps lift blocking out the results for the text string "https://undefined".

Just for your reference I gave the below review on Google Play recently which spurred this query.........

The website seems to have just that little bit more flexibility, but above all it's very very good. Does the job.
_Wish you could auto-add a tag for entries that store passwords specifically for Android Apps.

    Hi @uwalakab. Thanks for reaching out in our forum with more info about your feature request! I will let our development team know you'd like to have Logins for apps tagged automatically. :D

  • Thank you @peri - Looking forward to hearing from you.

    As Peri mentioned, she's bringing up your suggestion with the rest of the team. It's something we may add in the future, not something we're promising at this time. I'm sorry if that was unclear. :)

  • Sure @brenty Thank you. I suppose we can all wait and see. ;)

    Hey @peri @brenty

    Have noticed in the Android app a "Linked Apps" entry for some of the password I have stored. This looks good. Maybe this is something that's been there all the time and I missed it.
    Is there criteria I can use currently to find all entries that have something like this?

    Hi @uwalakab those "Linked apps" get added to any items which are used for signing in to an app - however there's not currently a way to search for these in 1Password. I'll mention this to the development team too :)

  • Many thanks @andiAG

    No problem @uwalakab have a great day :chuffed:

  • Allow me to re-open this matter here.

    In general, 1P works great with my Android apps. My question is, how do it know? An app is not a web page, right?

    Anyway, I'm changing banks and my new bank's app (a) does not have fingerprint capability at the phone level, and (b) also is not recognized as something 1P should pop up for.

    I'm using the copy/paste, of course. But why do some apps gladly give me the 1P popup and others don't? My new bank (First Merchants) doesn't, but Vanguard's app does?? And inside of that, some that do offer the popup don't provide information that lets 1P know what entry to offer--I have to search for it myself inside 1P and then confirm that "yes, absolutely I mean use this entry on this login".

    @adam1991: Good question. :) 1Password uses Google's Android Autofill specification to enable this functionality -- filling in apps -- but if the developer of the 3rd party app you're using hasn't bothered to update it to support Autofill in the years since Google introduced it that will not work. We have a fallback in the form of Accessibility filling which can help if the app developer has made their app accessible, but of course not all do. I'd first make sure that you have both of those enabled:


    Otherwise you can use drag and drop between apps:


    Or copy and paste from the 1Password app as a last resort.

    Based on your comments, it sounds like Accessibility works, but since the app is not identifying itself using Autofill 1Password cannot match it to your saved Login information, hence 1Password asks you which Login you want to fill.

    I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • Yes, big help, thanks.

    First Merchants Bank app stinks, is what this tells me. Accessibility is working, but the app doesn't play with it AT ALL. And the app also doesn't play well with split screen. My only choice is copy and paste.

    I'm on Samsung's Android 10, so maybe that's an issue as well. But it isn't for other apps.

    If it's working fine in other apps, then indeed it's something specific to what that one in particular is doing. Sorry I don't have better news for you on that count. :blush:
