    Hi @tuni12!

    I suppose by "browser" in this case you meant "search engine", correct? In that case, 1Password will work without problems, regardless of the search engine you use :+1:

  • Thx - i always mix up the terminology. Also i have 1 pw in my iPhone too. Am i correct in assuming i can use DuckDuckGo and utilize 1pw with that device too?

    @tuni12:

    I have just tested DuckDuckGo on my iOS device, and I was able to get 1Password to work there too :+1:

  • thx for your help.

    Sure thing! You can find instructions here for using iOS Password Autofill:

    https://support.1password.com/ios-autofill/

    That works on an iPhone or iPad to setup and use it for saving and filling login credentials, as part of the OS, not 1Password. While that will work with most websites/apps, it depends on them being compatible by following Apple's guidelines and/or web standards. So it may be necessary to copy and paste in some cases (though in even rarer instances, the app/website will prevent that intentionally as well, requiring you to type it manually -- yuck).

    You'll need to make sure that your Login item saved in 1Password has the correct information for the username, password, and website URL. If the username or password are incorrect, Autofill will be filling the wrong information. And if the URL is incorrect, it will not be able to match the credentials to the app/website you're using. And in order for that to work with an app (as opposed to a website), its developer would need to have setup associated domains for it according to Apple's instructions -- otherwise it isn't possible for iOS Password Autofill to find the login credentials:

    https://developer.apple.com/documentation/security/password_autofill/setting_up_an_app_s_associated_domains

    Anyway, if you're having trouble, while we don't have any control over the process, if you'll let us know the specifics -- URL, the exact steps you're taking, and what is/isn't happening as you expect -- we can test it to see if there's something we can suggest. Cheers! :)

  • thanks, Brenty - looks more complicated than I thought - may not be worth the trouble.....sigh...
