How do I find an old or previous password?

I just tried to change my password on a website and used 1Password to change the value (I was logged in successfully). The site then proceeded to refuse to update the password. Now I don't know what my old password is and I am completely stuck with this site. I used to see a previous passwords list, but it seems to have been removed.


1Password Version: 1Password 7 Version 7.8.8.BETA-0 (70808000) 1Passw
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macos 10.15.7 (19H1323) Catalina


  • Click the little down arrow next to the password field and if there are previous passwords, there will be a "View Password History" option.

    benmattison is spot on :+1: Here is also a screenshot for you, in case it helps:

  • I also couldn't find it — this was helpful!

    However, some feedback: This is a change in the UI from previous versions (and also different from the iOS version), where "Previously Used Passwords" was in its own category on the main screen for the item. It's bound to confuse other people as well.
