URLs in records, how brief can I be?

Hello there everyone!

I've put this off for about a year but I've finally begun cleaning up my Firefox imported 1Pass entries.... literally hundreds upon hundreds of unorganized, often duplicated but never titled entries. I'm a few hundred through but have just wondered if I could skip consolidation of entries based on variations of a single URL. What I mean is that Firefox treats:


as different records so I have sometimes up to 6 or 7 imported records for a single site in 1pass. Up to this point I've been opening all the entries' URLs in tabs, then ctrl+c and v into a single entry, adding the title and saving. It took a few hundred entries done this way before I started wondering if I could simply put:


into the entry and be covered for all the cases above. I know that if a forum with a different login was at domain.com/forum or forum.domain.com, I could make a different entry for that but if the entire domain shares a single login, am I ok with skipping http(s) and just placing the TLD as it's only URL?

Thanks for your time!

  • I believe 1Password treats naked domains the same as www., so you should be able to do https://example.com for a site, and that should clean things up.

    Skipping https will result in Watchtower complaining about it being insecure.

    plttn is correct @schwim, 1Password uses the domain part of the URL for filling, so that's the shortest part you need to enter :+1:

    Skipping https will result in Watchtower complaining about it being insecure.

    Watchtower will complain only if the URL is explicitly "http". If you skip it, and only enter example.com, it will also work without complaints :)

  • Ahh, thanks very much to both of you for the help! I've managed to go back through the fixed entries to simplify the URLs. Better to catch it now rather than later!

    Thanks again!
