    Hey @Thanos92, thanks for reaching out to us! I'd love to help you with linking your apps :)

    Since we do not want to take risks with your private data and insert it where you may not want it inserted, we leave it up to you to decide if you want a given app to have access to a given Login. After the first time you've used a Login in an app, we create a link between the two so we can offer it for filling from then on. Therefore, all you'll need to do is Autofill with the Login in the app!

    Hope that helps, and let us know if you have any further questions :)

    ag_audrey, I do not get this option when trying to login to desktop app Microsoft TEAMS. I cannot copy paste and after I have logged in there is no option with 1password to allow autofill. Should I try this on my phone instead?. Should I simply use TEAMS within the browser? Thank you

    I think , ag_audrey, that your description helps me with my other post from 2 days ago.

    However, while I laud your / 1PWs / AgileBits concern for safety/security, I have to be honest. For those of us migrating from other password managers (BW in my case), or just for the public in general.... this extra set of 5 steps (click "search for entry", find the entry, click on the entry, then click "OK to use this entry") is a kind of a pain in the rear.

    I don't mean to sound harsh, but I'll say that I'm already so busy in life, why can't there be an option to globally make the match if we already have the website or android association already in the Login entry?

    There are ways to be secure, and then there are ways to put up speedbumps.

    Could you folks please consider giving the option to not have this extra set of steps?

    Thanks!!!! Can't wait to hear back :)

    Hello @FrankBreech thanks for joining the conversation. I definitely agree streamlining this process would be beneficial when importing from other password managers. I have passed along your comments to the development team. Thanks again for sharing your interest in this!

    On this topic, I have a 600+ accounts in 1Password, many of which are also apps on my Android, for example, PayPal. However, I cannot figure out how to link the PayPal app to my 1Password entry. How do I create a link from 1Password to the Android PayPal app?

    Hi @dcd1password!

    If you have saved a Login to a web site you can link it to an app by autofilling with the Login for the website. 1Password will ask you to confirm that you want to autofill the website's Login credentials into the app. When confirmed, the link to the app will be created.

    Hope that helps!

    That's not exactly what I was thinking. I just logged into the Subway web site using the 1Password credentials without issue, both on my laptop and on my Android browser. I checked the Subway entry in 1Password, and there's no linked application listed.

    When I opened the Subway Android App and attempted to login, 1Password didn't offer to fill in the credentials: I typed them in manually, and 1Password didn't link the Subway app, either. When I opened the entry for Subway, it didn't show a Linked application, like PayPal does.

    The PayPal entry clearly shows the login credentials as well as a linked application, and 1Password properly prompts me to fill in the login details.

    The question, then, is how to link or re-link 1Password entries to show the application installed on the phone.

    1Password should scan installed apps and update the linked App to match a login entry or allow me to manually select a linked app from a list of installed entries for a given login. Conversely, if an app is already linked, even if it's not installed, 1Password should not change it.

    Hello @dcd1password thanks for following up with us.

    If an app supports Autofill you can tap the 1Password prompt, select "Search 1Password", select your Login item from the list then approve your selection by tapping "Autofill" in the dialogue box. After approving your selection a link to the app will be created in the Login item.

    It looks like the Subway app redirects you to the Subway website within the app for sign in so linking as I described won't work. Instead you can edit your subway item to include a website field with "subway.com". You mentioned you can sign in to Subway through a browser on your Android device so there is likely already a website field saved in your Subway item. When you open the Subway app, tap Sign in then tap the email field do you see any prompt from 1Password? If you edit your item and add an additional website field with "subway.com" is the item now suggested?

    I too am having problems linking android apps to 1Password. My latest example is with Instacart but it happens to most apps it seems. I have a login to Instacart that works on the website. I later installed the app on my android phone. When I get the apps login screen I never seem to get 1Password to offer to fill in the id or the password. I guess if I could then I would get the prompt to confirm that I want to autofill the website's Login credentials into the app,

    Hey @mpfc75 thanks for your comments! I just pulled up Instacart and it looks like you need to force Autofill in the app. Open the Instacart app > tap login > long press (tap and hold) the email field > tap ⋮ > tap Autofill. After tapping Autofill you should be able to use the prompt from 1Password as usual.

    Let us know how that goes!

    Hello @ag_timothy. That worked great! Thanks so much. Now I have work to do to set up my other android apps.

    Ahhh, one qualification... I logged out to try it all the way through after linking the app. I still have to hold the email field and tap the menu and select Autofill. Then 1Password prompts me. Is that what you expect? I thought once linked that it would work like in a browser... I thought 1Password would just prompt me (above my keyboard) without having to do menu>autofill.

    Still much better though.

    Hello @mpfc75 thanks for following up with us! I'm glad to hear that helped you sign in to Instacart.

    The long press > ⋮ > Autofill steps are not expected behavior but are required in some apps and websites. With Autofill and Autofill previews enabled you will see the prompt from 1Password after tapping a login field in most apps and websites. In some cases, apps do not provide us enough contextual clues for us to be able to determine that we should offer Autofill so forcing it is required. In others, Autofill may be blocked or otherwise interfered with so that we cannot Autofill at all. If you find an app or website where Autofill is blocked, you can try using [split screen mode to drag and drop your credentials].
