Issues with 1Password 8 on Android

Community Member

Hi, I have installed the new 1Password 8 app on my Samsung G22+ and it looks good. However, I have a couple of issues with it that I can't see a solution for.

The main one is that on the new "Home" screen, my favourites are not in alphabetical order, and unlike in the main vault, I can't see a way of getting them in alphabetical order, so it makes it hard to find stuff.

The other issue, which is a small one but confused me a lot when setting it up, is that it says face login when it is referring to the fingerprint reader. It said this when setting it up so at first I ignored it as I didn't want to use face ID, but went back to it when I couldn't find the fingerprint option, only to find that it meant the fingerprint option. Now it says "Unlock with Face" above "Use fingerprint" when unlocking. A small thing but a little confusing nonetheless.

    Hello @alexmidd, thanks for your questions!

    Favorites are currently sorted from most recently to least recently favorited. I definitely see the benefit of sorting these alphabetically or providing a range of sort options. I've gone ahead and shared this request to the team.

    With version 8.9.1, if a device has a facial scanner, the wording for Biometric unlock will default to Face unlock even if Face unlock is not on or available with 1Password on the device. If you have a fingerprint registered, tapping Face unlock on will enable fingerprint unlock in 1Password 8 for Android. The wording has been corrected in version 8.9.2.

    Thanks again!

    Hi thanks for your reply. That clears things up.

    Yes, sorting alphabetically enables me to find entries, whereas time-based sorting does not as I cannot remember when entries were added. Glad to see this will be looked at, thanks.
