Use Android's predictive keyboard when entering master password

Community Member

HI, I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone. When 1Password asks me for my master password on Android, the predictive keyboard is disabled. Neither can I use swipe keyboard. The reason I am asking is because I have a diceware password that is super easy to enter with a swipe keyboard; not so key by key. Is it possible to turn that on somehow? Thanks.

  • Hey @fBrj49sLKnBDJ34. It's not possible to turn predictive text on when typing in your Master Password. If there were, that would make your Master Password available on your device in plain text, and vulnerable to third parties.

    I recommend taking a look at this blog post by our Defender Against the Dark Arts, Jeff Goldberg, on choosing Master Passwords that are strong, unique, and easy to type-able.

    Let us know if you have more questions! :)
