What are "Secure input fields"

edited November 24 in Lounge

The security page ( https://support.1password.com/1password-security/ ) mentions "Secure input fields" to protect against keyloggers.

What are these? Does it work the same way across the website, apps and browser extensions and OS?

    Welcome to the 1Password Support Community, @aol! Secure input (or secure text) fields are those which mask their contents on the screen (replacing typed text with asterisks or dots), and have protections in the operating system against any other (normally-operating) apps/processes reading them. Here’s Apple’s description for Swift, for example. Implementations and specifics vary somewhat from platform to platform somewhat, but the overall idea is similar.

  • Thanks Lars! I'll have a look on what each OS/browser offers.
