Universal Autofill stopped working in most of my apps with 8.7.1 - explanation and request!

Long time 1Password user here!

Universal Autofill — one of the hands-down best features of version 8 — stopped working for me in most of my apps due to this change in release 8.7.1: We now verify the code signature of apps before we allow filling using Universal Autofill.

I use over 20 site-specific browser apps (SSBs) created with WebCatalog. These were all working in 8.7.0, but are now all broken in the later releases of 1Password. I can't describe how hugely disappointing this is, first the joy of having the feature, and then having it taken away without providing an alternative. Universal Autofill really is "magic" and so, so useful. It's a "killer feature".

I have also tested other SSB applications and can confirm this change in 1Password has broken Universal Autofill in them as well. This includes both Coherence X and Unite from BZG.

I emailed the BZG and WebCatalog teams, and they confirmed that their apps are indeed signed, so it is something to do with how 1Password verifies the signatures.

I'm just leaving this here for the 1Password team to pick up, with the hope that an appropriate solution can be found (quickly) to restore the feature (even an option to turn off signature verification with a warning would be better), and for anyone else who went through hours of trying to configure accessibility options inside macOS and reinstalling applications only to discover that 1Password quietly removed the feature in an update and without much warning!!

Big love to all the 1Password team.

    No problem - thanks for the quick reply! I had conversation with you guys via Twitter, but don't remember emailing!? Must be old age. 😆 Apologies. I also wanted to leave this here for other users that might be having the same experience too.

    No worries at all my friend.

    Who are we talking about again? Me or you? 🤣 I know that feeling all too well. aka I resemble that remark.

    By the way, no apologies needed. I appreciate your well thought out question. Grey is on the case and hopefully you'll have a reply soon.

    Hey @ag_tommy and @Jack.P_1P - any movement on a solution for this? I'd be happy to beta test anything. 😊
