Hello, I'm a new user trying out 1Password and in particular your Android app. (Apologies if the below has been asked already; I searched and was very surprised not to find an answer)
When I went to turn out Autofill, Android issued a fairly ominous warning - "1Password will be able to see what's on your screen in all apps to determine what can be filled in automatically". It's hard for me to know the implications of this, so I'd appreciate your comments on what actual access to my phone this implies, as I would generally never click 'Yes' to something like this.
1. What information does 1Password's app read off of app screens in its current form? How is this information processed / stored / used?
What are the 'worst case' scenario implications of this access? In the event that malicious code were introduced into 1Password's app (unlikely, I appreciate, but not impossible), if I'd granted it this level of permission, what could it do - presumably capture anything I type into a form anywhere on my phone? Anything beyond that, e.g. could it read other non-form content off my phone screen as I used it?
Is there any way to ring-fence off specific apps away from 1Password's autofill access?
If I do decide the possible security / privacy implications of the above do not justify using 1Password's autofill - are there any other options? Copy / paste is out because of clipboard sniffing attacks. I'd be happy to switch to the 1Password keyboard when I need to enter a password, but that's being deprecated. Any other options?
(I did see that the Android app supports drag-and-drop but haven't tried it yet - how is that implemented and are there any security implications there? In particular, can you confirm that drag-and-dropped passwords don't hit the Android clipboard?)
Very much appreciate any thoughts you can share, and thank you for your time!
