For 1P Browser I know the routine ie

1. Click the 1Password icon in your browser's toolbar
2. Click the "+" button
3. Select Password Generator

How does one do similarly on 1P for Android?

  • Hey @jmjm, welcome to the Forum! I'm happy to see you'd like to generate new passwords :)

    You can follow the steps here to generate a new password:
    1. Open and unlock 1Password for Android.
    2. Tap the "+" button, then Login.
    3. Tap the Settings icon on the right of the password field. Choose a password type and adjust the settings based on the app or site's password requirements. Then, tap Save.

    Remember to go back to the app or site in question and paste your newly generated password. You can read more here:

    Let me know if there's anything else you'd like help with :)

    @ag_audrey, there are occasions when a potential log in or "form" doesNT recognize 1Password but I would still like to easily generate a password using the Android App. Does your description above allow for the scenario I am describing?

    Yes, that method works in every case, as long as the app allows you to paste the generated password from the 1Password app :+1:
