Android Search

Hey all!

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong, but the android search feature seems extremely limited.
Can I really only search by login name? For example, if I choose all items and enter 'groupon' in search nothing pops up. On the desktop client it shows me all my logins containing that string in the login/domain, such as for

I've seen some posts requesting faster access to search etc, but I couldn't find any discussing this aspect. I'd love to hear that I'm just missing something!

    Hey @kyoji1! You’re not doing anything wrong, this is how the search feature is currently implemented. We only allow searching based on the title of the items. We plan to revisit search again as modern devices and newer Android OS improves in performance significantly, and I will be sure to add your voice to the request! Thanks. :)

  • @kyoji1 The search on android is a horrible design. It is hidden couple of clicks deep inside. There was a different discussion thread on this. These folks have not updated their andriod app for last 2yrs. Its just a shame on them. The whole competition has latest material design with search on the top visible on main screen. Check - Lastpass, Enpass, SafeInCloud, Keeper, etc..

    Hey @saad! Thank you, for the quick reply; at least I know I'm not doing something wrong :) I agree with @sameerchavan that the search is a little dated compared to the competition, but that doesn't help me solve the problem now. I imported all of my logins from another password manager and named them according to the login name, such as '[email protected]' versus the domain such as '' since I have multiple logins saved for many websites. Is there a way I can quickly edit all of the names of my login records in this format: '[email protected] -'? In this manner I can utilize the search the way I need to on all platforms.

    There are definitely improvements we want to do with search and we are working on a few ideas with the Material Design changes. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to change the item titles. The only approach is to do it manually. :(
