1Password on Mastodon

bad idea: "search with google" context menu on secure notes

edited January 6 in Linux

I accidentally right-clicked it. And my secret got into my browser search. The marginal convenience for a "search with google" in your secure notes is way too small that a committed security application should introduce such a feature that potentially exposes stuff. What is the rationale? I'm coming from Lastpass and wonder if I make another mistake...

    Where do you see this option?

    In a 1Password App (which?) or in the browser? (with extra extensions?)

    Ah, that's the one platform I have never used 1Password on...

    Maybe that's the only one with this function then?

    No, it's also included in the desktop application for windows. Should be removed instantly, or at least the user should be able to decide which search engine is used for searching. The context menu entries "facebook" and "Twitter" under "Help" should be removed as well...
