Is "Last Date Used" accurate?

edited July 22 in Mac

Today I decided to sort my (couple of thousand) password items by "Last Date Used", and I'm seeing many entries that I've not intentionally used/touched popping to the top of the list. Many of which I haven't used in months or even years.

Is 1Password doing this on my behalf (e.g. hunting for insecure passwords?) --- or is this something nefarious, such as someone's gained access to my vault (*)?

(*) I really doubt they've gotten into my fault, for one thing I just now changed my password and kicked all other devices from access, and I have an Authenticator app for 2FA set up. Yet the Last Date Used keeps changing.

1Password Version: 1Password 7 Version 7.8.7.BETA-0 (70807000)
Extension Version:
OS Version: OSX 11.4
Sync Type: 1Password

    I can’t say that I’ve seen this myself, but other than the annoyance of the date modified data being misleading I don’t see any reason to suspect that there is cause for worry.

    Any PC's or other non Apple devices in the mix? Out of curiosity do you see a vault called Primary on any of your devices?

  • Thanks for looking into it, Tommy.

    No vault called "Primary".

    I do normally have my iPhone and an Android tablet connected, but I de-activated both while looking into it, and items were still popping up to the top.

    I've now turned off WatchTower to see if that might be what's doing it. Will report back later.
