Disable chrome payment methods override

I use 1password for passwords, but I rely on Chrome for storing credit cards. The 1Password X extension is great, but it prevents chrome from auto-filling in credit card information. There is a setting for this in chrome but it is explicitly disabled (and says this extension is controlling the setting).

Would it be possible to provide a configuration option for 1Password X to allow chrome to still manage payment method fields?

1Password Version: 7.6
Extension Version: 1.20.0
OS Version: 10.15.6
Sync Type: dropbox

    Hey @dnathe4th ,

    Do you have a specific reason to not let 1Password autofill your credit cards as well? Pretty sure it will do what you want and more:

    1. Open your browser.
    2. Click the 1Password icon on the top right and unlock it.
    3. Click the big PLUS icon in the 1Password window to reveal the menu and select "Credit Card" from the list of options.
    4. A new tab will open where you can create a new credit card item, which you will be able to use to autofill credit card forms on websites. Input your credit card's details and click on "Save" at the bottom.
    5. Get to a website that asks for your credit card info, click the 1Password icon on the top right corner of your browser to show 1Password, select the credit card item you created and click on "Autofill".

    In case you still prefer to have Chrome autofill credit cards for you, you can right click the 1Password icon on the top right corner of your browser, select "Settings", then in the settings page scroll down to the "General" section and turn off "Make 1Password the default password manager". That will allow you to turn on Chrome's autofilling, but keep in mind things might get confusing if both 1Password and Chrome show up inside fields offering to autofill.

  • The reason for me is very simple.
    I ALREADY have all my credit card entered in Google Wallet and I see no reason to duplicate this precious data repository.
    It NEEDS to be in Google Wallet. It really doesn't need to be in 1password.
    It would be nice to have the ability to select to only save passwords (as the name implies) or to add other things (which can be turned on-off such as payment information (credit cards and address).... all this WITHOUT having to turn off making 1password the default password manager. I left lastpass for 1password but even they have this part working ok.

    Hey @scoobscoob ,

    1Password's job is to make your digital life easier and more secure by remembering your most personal and private information for you. That includes passwords, identities (full name, address, phone number etc), credit cards, driver's license, bank account and more. We are able to autofill things for you in the browser, such as login items, identities and credit cards to make everything much easier.

    The browser can do that too, but it is a tad less secure. If you already have and use 1Password, why not stick to it and utilize all of its features? Why have two different apps suggest two different autofilling genres? Make your life simpler (and more secure) by using only one autofill provider. That is the default that we turn on when users install 1Password to make the experience more seamless and less confusing for users who don't know that their browser also suggest autofilling and wouldn't be able to differentiate which is which.

    You can, if you want, disable 1Password as the default manager which will allow you to turn Chrome's built-in autofilling back on, so all options are open to you. We're just here to improve your experience, but if you're used to a certain workflow that is also understandable :)

  • ag_yaron, I feel like you haven't read my comment.
    Google chrome / wallet already has my credit card info in order to use Android Pay in the Google ecosystem.
    You claim that 1password is more secure than Google Wallet. Please substantiate this assertion.
    Furthermore, I am not asking to turn off 1password but simply to have the ability to enable / disable certain sections of auto-fill so it continues to fill passwords (and whatever else I enabled) and leaves Chrome to fill credit card info.

    If you'd like to continue using the Google ecosystem to manage and fill your payment details, you can certainly still do so. We'll just have to adjust autofill settings to allow Chrome to work alongside 1Password. You can do so as follows:

    1. Right-click 1Password's icon in Chrome's toolbar and click Settings.
    2. Under "General" turn off the "make 1Password the default password manager" option.
    3. Paste the following into Chrome's address bar: chrome://settings/autofill
    4. Click Payment methods and allow Chrome to autofill.
  • It would be great to separate this functionality (credit cards) from passwords such that we could say 1password should be the default for passwords but not credit cards, and vice versa. I'm in the same boat as the OP - I like having all of my CC info in Google/Chrome as opposed to 1password, but I prefer 1password for all of my passwords and account info.

    Thank you for the suggestion @chrisbloom7! In the meantime, Chantelle's steps should help you do exactly that :)

  • I also find the inability to separate autofill for passwords and credit cards to be incredibly frustrating. For years, I've been using 1Password to autofill passwords in Chrome and Google Pay to autofill credit cards. I recently purchased a new computer and now my Chrome + 1Password extension force me to either enable the extension or disable it entirely.

    I am also surprised at the responses from Team Members here. Users are requesting flexibility in the application and you're telling us we're wrong. I don't get it.

    Hey, @danger - thanks for chiming in. You should not have to disable the extension in order to use Chrome payments. If you wish to use 1Password only for autofilling passwords you can adjust the autofill settings with the steps I shared earlier in this thread. Can you confirm that you're able to use Chrome for credit cards, as expected, after following those steps?

  • Hey 1Password team,

    All the above workarounds make the user experience be different around the user/pwd fields, and this is what is frustrating all of us here. Make it possible to ONLY remove the CC fields from the 1Password scope, but don't make us lose everything else that we love and expect from 1Password Chrome extension.

    Thanks for the feedback @mikep2021 .

    The purpose of 1Password is to be a one stop shop for all of your personal data and autofilling needs. Having some data in 1Password and other data in another password manager (e.g. your browser's built-in autofill) is a recipe for trouble, especially for less-savvy users as they often get confused and don't remember what is saved and where, thus losing important data.

    We will consider this feedback though, thank you for taking the time to write about it - much appreciated!
