I followed the instructions for setting up automatic fill ins for applications. Still doesnt work.

After setting up Privacy and Security- Accessability- and turning on One Password, it still does not fill in the login info for applications. It brings up a search box to find the app in the quick access window.

1Password Version: 8.9.13 (80913040)
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: Mac OS 13.1
Browser:_ firefox

  • Hi there @jaccolon

    It sounds like the item you want to autofill into the app isn't linked to it. Give this a try:

    1. Make sure 1Password is unlocked.
    2. Open an app you want to autofill into.
    3. Press ⌘\ (Command–Backslash).
    • If there's no item linked to the active app, you'll see Quick Access.
    • If there's one item linked, it'll autofill without any further input from you.
    • If there's more than one, you'll see Quick Access open so that you can pick one.
    1. Search for the item you'd like to autofill, and press ⇧↩ (Shift–Return) to autofill it.
    2. In the dialog box that appears, click "Fill & Update Login".

    You'll then see that app listed in the Linked Apps section of the item, like this:

    There's more information about how to use Universal Autofill here:

    Please let me know if you have any questions, or would like any further help. :)
