Way too difficult to find an old password

Hi, it doesn't happen often, but from time to time a password change will fail on a website, and, since 1password already updated it's database, I have to find the old password in the password history.

The thing is, every time I have go do that, I end up having to do a search on how to get password history because I can't find it. This isn't normal, it should be as easy as selecting "show password history" in the interface, be it the local client on the desktop, the browser extension, or the web interface. As it stand right now, it seems we can only get the history from the web interface?

This part of 1password needs to be improved imho. From a usability standpoint, it's really bad right now.


1Password Version: 8.6
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: windows 11

    @kinwolf You're also able to view password history in the browser extension, have you tried this?

    Hi @kinwolf / @Poiks:

    Thanks for your feedback on this. You can view the history of a password field by clicking the down arrow on the field, and then choosing View password history:

    Let me know how you get on with that!
