Feature request - save 2FA Backup Codes

Lazarus LongLazarus Long Junior Member

I'm setting up 2FA and using 1Password for many of my online accounts, but this request could be useful for people using other authenticator apps. As you know, some sites provide a set of "Backup Codes" which you can use in case you don't have access to your authenticator app. I'd like to request a dedicated field in the Login where we could paste in the backup codes. Obviously we could just use the Notes field but I think this is worth having it's own field. Thank you.

    Hi @Lazarus Long!

    Thank you very much for taking time out of your day to to share this feedback! We appreciate every idea that could make 1Password even better.

    I can see how this could be useful to you, so while I cannot make any promises, I can tell you that I have shared your feedback internally :)

    Once again, thank you and have a wonderful day!

  • +1, a separate field would be nice to have for this. Maybe also a suggestion by 1PW when you add a TOTP that backup codes should be added too.

  • +1, a seperate field would be great because we could use Markdown to cross out used Backup Codes.

    Hi @rctneil and @ejunkie,

    I've added both your voices to the feedback as well. :smile:

    Thank you!

    +1 from me also

    While we're at it - maybe those security questions and answers? "What was your first pet?" etc.

  • @khaosspawn

    Security questions and answers are already available.

    You can create your own question and also generate a random answer:

    Oh wow - is this in 1P7? I'm not seeing options there.
