Bug Report. Linking multiple 1Password records.

I have a new Amazon Seller Central Account and also a new Gmail persona as an Amazon business linked to my regular personal Gmail account, but with its own user name and password.

I specifically chose to use the same password on the Amazon Seller Account as I did on the Google Gmail Seller account. Because if I were to change one password, I'd need to change the other. While they are two different sites, but they are logically linked. And communicate with one another.

So, I get a REUSED password error. There is no facility to say to 1Password, "Yes, I know these two sites share the same password. I want it that way. Stop warning me. Dismiss this pop-up and never warn me again"

So, I tried to link one site (Amazon Seller) 1Password record with the other site (Amazon Seller Gmail account) 1Password record and using 1Password Add-On in Firefox, clciked on edit, and then clicking on the link box which did nothing.

It wasn't until I clicked on launch the full 1Password app that I saw that the 1Password Firefox Add-On had opened the box to select the linked site underneath itself, so it wasn't visible until I switched away from the Add-On to go to the display of the full 1Password application.

Also, I am really not sure what the intention of the iPassword linked site is. Conde Nast is the publisher of Wired, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker. Here no matter which of these publications I use, I will be taken to a Conde Nast server to be autehticated. So Conde Nast will always be the suggested 1Password site to log in, although I have a separate password for each magazine. So my iPassword record for Conde Naste points to the three 1Password records for the three publications.

So if I go to www.wired.com and click on Log In, I am going to be switched to the Conde Nast authtentication server, even though the page on the server is specific to Wired. But the security and subscriber management isn't hosted on wired.com but on condenast.com (Basically, you have a giant publisher called Conde Nast trying to consolidate all their subscribers into a single database, while at the same time having separate web sites and content for each publication. Hearst Managzines does the same thing. Hearst owns the sfchronicle.cm site but also owns other publications. All Security and password management is done by the parent corporation on the Hearst servers. The broweser doesn't show this, because it is one web site inside another.)

I just want to make Auto Fill and GO in 1Password work.

    Hey @FogCityNative ,
    Thanks for writing in about this!

    The option to link one entry to another in 1Password is for the convenience of finding information. If you have a credit card item in 1Password, you can link your bank's login entry to it and your bank account item as well. That way, you only need to find one of the three in order to have access to the information in all three items: https://support.1password.com/link-items/

    If you have multiple websites that use the same login credentials, instead of linking them one to another, you can simply use a single login item for all of them. The way to do that is to add every website's URL to the same login entry:

    1. Open your 1Password app.
    2. Find the main login entry you'd like to use, select it and click on "Edit".
    3. Under the username and password fields you'll see the website URL field, which tells 1Password to which website these credentials belong to. You can add as many URLs under that first URL so that 1Password will know you want to autofill these same credentials on multiple websites.
    4. Once you've added all the URLs you need, click the "Save" button to save your changes and you'll now have a login item that will work in all of these websites, as long as you have the same username and password for all of them.

    That way, you will also get rid of the Watchtower notification that indicates you are using the same password in multiple places.
    Here's a screenshot showing what the login entry will look like in 1Password:

    Keep in mind that this will only work if both the username and password are identical for all of the websites you list. In case the username is different, you will still have to use a separate login item.

    There's currently no way to disable the Watchtower notification about re-used passwords, as it is an important safety mechanism designed to alert users until they handle that security vulnerability. Yes, there are some edge cases like having the same password but different usernames on multiple websites, but they are indeed edge cases and we will keep investigating such cases to improve 1Password accordingly.

    As for the bug you encountered, can you please list a step-by-step description of your actions, where did you perform them and when, so that I can replicate it here and file it as a bug if I can confirm it?

    Thanks again for taking the time to bring this up!
