Disable authentication

edited November 2020 in iOS Beta


How can I disable 1Password asking for authentication in my iPhone? It is asking for Face ID, and if I wear a mask, it is asking for master password everytime I try to fill something. Like it asks for Face ID on username, then again Face ID for password. Considering my master password is more than 40 random characters it is impossible to do it. Also I have to wear a mask at night due to health conditions, so it is really not helpful getting asked Face ID and master password nonstop.

I have Lock on Exit disabled, and Auto Lock set to 1 Hour. Face ID enabled. I have iPhone 11 Pro Max, iOS 14.2 (official build) and 1Password 7.7 Beta

    Hi @Naxterra

    It isn't possible to disable the need to unlock 1Password entirely. Have you tried adding an alternate appearance to Face ID while wearing the mask? Apple has instructions here:

    You may wish to consider enabling a PIN code in 1Password > Settings > Advanced > Security if unlocking via Face ID is impractical due to the mask.

    If you unlock the 1Password app prior to attempting to use autofill you shouldn't have to unlock for each field... This can also potentially be helped by enabling the setting 1Password > Settings > Advanced > Security > Always Show Lock Screen for Password AutoFill. This makes it such that unlocking is handled by 1Password rather than iOS.
