Odd 1Password extension behavior

Wondering if there's a good reason for why there's a GUID in this window... 🤔

How can I fix this? Is it normal?

    Hello @ehed! 👋

    1Password for Safari takes advantage of Safari's ability to support extensions on iOS 15 and is subject to different technical opportunities and limitations than iOS Password AutoFill. Specifically we're using a web standard called WebAuthn in order to manage authentication, it's a great way for Safari extensions to make use of Touch ID or Face ID however it does require that the user first allows the authentication to take place which is why you'll see a "Do you want to allow" screen appear when you tap on the Touch ID icon and where you'll see the long UUID string again. You can match the UUID on the 1Password prompt and on the Touch ID authentication prompt to make sure that you're authenticating 1Password for Safari and not something else.

    This is normal and nothing to be worried about. As Apple matures web extensions on iOS we're hoping to make the Touch ID process more elegant in the future.

    Let me know if you have any questions. 😊
