Ubuntu Linux (both 20.04 and 22.04) Autolock fails to properly secure my passwords

Community Member


Despite having multiple times un-set and set "Auto-lock" in my Settings panel my 1Password instance does not automatically lock.

More details

Even when (Super + L) locking my machine manually the application remains completely unlocked.
I've come back to my machine after the weekend and still had the application sitting unlocked (auto-lock with a 1 minute timeout enabled) .
This is clearly not ideal or even acceptable when a necessary secondary function (Keeping the passwords inaccessible) continues to fail.


I've been using this machine for several months and never once has 1Password automatically locked.


I'm currently running XFCE desktop environment (Xubuntu 22.04)


I'm happy to help debug this issue if anyone from the 1Password or the agileBits teams wants to work 1-on-X to resolve the issue.

1Password Version: 8.9.4
