How to make 1Password the only PW Manager?

How can I totally turn off Apple’s Keychain based password saving function?

Presently, I see a button labeled PASSWORDS at the bottom of the screen when I must choose between Apple’s Safari rudimentary PW manager and 1PW.

I don’t want to choose every time as I never use the built in password manager Apple provides.

    You need to uncheck Keychain from your iOS AutoFill settings:

    1. On the iOS Home screen, tap Settings.
    2. Tap Passwords > AutoFill Passwords.
    3. Deselect iCloud Keychain

    You can see a screenshot of how that settings area should look like here.

    Thank you!! I didn’t even know there was a setting for Passwords in iOS. Is that new in iOs 15?

    Nope, it has been there since Apple introduced AutoFill on iOS.

    The same switch doesn't exist on the Mac version of AutoFill though, the only toggle ends up being Safari -> Prefs -> Autofill usernames and passwords. That toggle unfortunately controls both Safari's presentation and the OS-level presentation for filling into arbitrary Mac apps.
