Saving and filling passwords

Copy and fill passwords into apps that don’t work with 1Password

Learn how to quickly access your passwords and copy them into other places, like apps that don’t have 1Password integration, or authentication dialogs on the web.

Sometimes you’ll need to enter your password into an app or window that doesn’t work with 1Password:

  • When you’re signing in to an app on your computer
  • When you’re asked for your Apple ID on an iOS device
  • When you’re signing in to a website using an HTTP authentication prompt

In these situations, you should take advantage of the ability to copy your passwords from 1Password.

Tip

For an easier way to fill your passwords into apps, set up Universal Autofill on your Mac.
