Touch ID is toggled, but it is not working. I have to manually type in the password whenever I login to 1Password. How can I fix this. This feature works well on my iPhone using face recognition.
1Password Version: 8.8.0
Extension Version: 2.3.5
OS Version: macOS 16
Hello @jazzman! 👋
I'm sorry that you're being prompted for your account password and not Touch ID when using 1Password on your iPad. Can you try to restart your iPad and then try to unlock 1Password using Touch ID again? If that still doesn't work then I'd like to ask you to create a diagnostics report from your iOS device:

It's working now. Go figure. I don't think it worked the first time I restarted it, but I may be wrong. Anyway, I restart it every morning. After this morning's restart, it worked just fine. So thanks for your help.
By the way, many websites advise you to close your browser when you log out of their site. When using 1Pass through the Safari Extension, is that necessary? Just trying to be safe. Please advise.
Great! Let us know if you need anything.
Not really. There is a lot of advice for online security that hasn't been updated in a fair while, and I wouldn't say that you need to close your browser after signing out. If you want to, you could lock 1Password, but that's about as far as I'd ever suggest taking that.
I usually lock 1Password when I'm not using it. What I was really referring to was a scenario where I may log in to five or six different websites during one session. I.e., Do I really need to close my browser after logging out of each website before I log in to another one? Many websites tell you to close your browser after logging out of their site. How do you handle this yourself?
Websites should invalidate sessions, state, and cookies when you log out as long as everything is setup correctly and you're using a modern browser. I personally don't close my browser after logging out. That being said, I would recommend reaching out to the websites that you're using so that they can advise on the best practice when it comes to using their particular website. 🙂
Thanks for your help, Dave. I've been using 1Password now since 2014. Your team has always been most helpful in addressing my concerns. Although not a computer whiz, I do consider myself a knowledgeable user. !Password has served my needs quite well, and I do appreciate what you all do. Thanks for assisting me in transitioning to 1Password 8 on all of my Apple devices.
Thank you for the kind words and for being part of 1Password for so many years. Please don't hesitate to reach out again if you have any questions or issues that we can help with. 😊
Dave, please take a look at my latest posted discussion question about Safari Extensions. I have not received any replies yet, but i'm sure you can help me with this. It's confusing. Hope you can help.
It looks like my colleague has already replied to you in the other thread: https://1password.community/discussion/138683/do-i-need-to-activate-what-looks-like-a-duplicate-safari-extension-from-the-app-store
Please continue the conversation there. 😊
