1Password on Mastodon

Extension-less autofill in Safari in macOS Ventura

Community Member

On iOS I'm using 1P in Safari without the extension: it works well for me via Authentication Services (Autofill).

Does 1P8 on macOS integrates with the corresponding system API as well and is able to fill usernames and passwords without the extension?

1Password Version: Not Provided
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macOS 13.1
Browser:_ Safari


  • Hi @Kentzo,

    It is indeed possible to use the 1Password 8 Mac app without the extension. Quick Access and Universal Autofill are both features of the app that can help you quickly locate and fill your data, I'll include some links in case you're interested in learning more about them:

    That said, the latest suite of browser extensions do integrate with the desktop app more closely than they have in the past and I would encourage you to give them a try: Get 1Password in your Browser

    Let me know if you give any of them a try or if you have any questions. 🙂

    I see that 1P8's "Universal Autofill" is unrelated to Apple's Autofill and uses Accessibility API (which gives unconstrained access to all UI and forbidden in my environment) and not the [Authentication Services API] which is Apple's Autofill.(https://developer.apple.com/documentation/authenticationservices/ascredentialproviderviewcontroller) (as on iOS).

    Are there plans to add support for that?

    FWIW although I do not use the apps below I came across similar requests while researching this problem:

    KeePass: https://github.com/keepassxreboot/keepassxc/issues/6265#issuecomment-1193124325
    MacPass: https://github.com/MacPass/MacPass/issues/1178#issue-972672925

    @Kentzo I'd also like to know when support for the macOS AutoFill API is finally added to 1Password.

    Dashlane, for example, already supports this feature of macOS:

    I'm not personally aware of any plans to support the macOS AutoFill feature, especially since we already have 1Password in the browser and now Universal Autofill available on the Mac. Supporting a third filling method might make things too confusing for users but that's only my opinion. Using Universal Autofill would be the best option.

    That being said, I hear your feedback about why you can't use Universal Autofill in your environment and I've passed along your request to the product team to consider for the future. 🙂

    I'd like to give my +1 for password autofill extension on Ventura. It should be the same functionality as on iOS, so password managers should integrate with that for best OS support. 1Password was so quick to jump onto it when it got added to iOS, so it's a bit sad to see that the macos variant doesn't have any plans for support yet.

    Just a random thought, but would sideload the iOS app on macOS add support for this? If the extension API is identical (it might, it might not be, I'm not sure), the iOS app may already integrate with it

    Thank you for the feedback, I've passed it along to the product team.

    We don't support running the iOS version of 1Password on macOS. Using 1Password 8 for Mac with Universal Autofill will give you the best experience on the Mac since it was designed for the Mac. 🙂
