    Hey @OscarGong ,

    Masked emails are created in Fastmail and are then being displayed in 1Password, so we can't edit them directly. Can you please elaborate on your use case and in which situations you find the need to edit a masked email? Are you trying to replace the entire email or just change a part of it?

    Hi @ag_yaron,

    I was trying to change the registered email of a website to my other email address.
    I think it would be also applied if I want to create a new account on a website which already have an existing account, I often duplicate the old entry and modify the copy.

    Hey @OscarGong ,
    Thanks for clarifying.

    While you can't edit the masked email field, you can delete it, which will allow you to input a new email (not a masked one but a regular email address). Does that help?

    If you want to create a new account on a website, it is best to save a brand new login on the page and not duplicate an existing login, since 1Password saves a lot of metadata on the page it might affect things if you duplicate it and edit the credentials. It is best to save a new login directly from the webpage itself.

  • Hi @ag_yaron,

    Thank for your advice, they are really helpful!

    Hi, chiming in on a somewhat similar case:

    If I wanted to change one of my existing logins to a fast mail-masked email ID, how would I do that in 1P, so that it is integrated in Fastmail? It looks like the Fastmail integration only pops up when creating a new account. But for those dudes like me, who have been on 1P for ages, it surely would be interesting to convert existing real-email account entries into Fastmail-enabled ones.

    @ovonquadt:

    Does the website allow you to change your username or email address?

  • ovonquadtovonquadt Junior Member

    @ag_ana yes.
    I have tried on several websites. Went to edit profile and change email address. On none of the sites I tried did 1P suggest fastmail masking.

    That's right. Currently 1Password only offers to create a masked email when you are on a registration page for a site. If you are on a page where you're attempting to change your existing email address to a masked one, we recommend creating the masked email in Fastmail directly and then copying it to paste into the email change form of the site you're on.

    Thanks. It would make a lot of sense to extend the Fastmail integration beyond the new-account creation workflow.

    I will pass your feedback to the team @ovonquadt :+1:

  • +1 for this request. I'd love to change my old accounts to use masked emails instead!
