Re: Questions About The 1Password Password Manager

Melissa,
Thank you for your detailed response. As I continued to experiment with 1Password as well as reading their documentation I began to realize part of my problem. Brave, the browser that I primarily use, was not bringing up any pop-up windows offering to save my passwords. Using 1Password with Google Chrome seemed to provide a more consistent experience. I disabled all addons to see if any of them might have been interfering with 1Password, such as Adblock Plus, but doing so didn't seem to make any difference. If you're familiar with Brave and could offer any insight I'd appreciate any feedback you might have.

Thank you again.

I’ve been using this service for a few years now.
The browser extensions are just for using in the browser… For instance, when you go to a webpage needing a login you can just hit the applications Key, or shift F 10, and hit the number one for 1Password and go from there. The separate desktop application is for when you want to look up something… I use it when I want to look up a credit card number or a certain login.
I think you can add stuff from there also… When it comes to entering in information on a browser. Normally, when I have a new login or change my password the window will come up and ask me if I want to save it or update it. You have to have an active subscription for this to work though.

Hello. I am trying to teach myself the best way to use 1Password and I'm clearly confused regarding some very basic concepts.
Here are my questions.

1. If there are 1Password extensions for each browser that you plan to use what is the purpose of the Windows app which is not browser specific and which can be easily accessed from the system tray? When would I want to use the app instead of the browser extension?
2. Once I'm on a site and am going through the process of entering a user name and password what is the most efficient way of feeding this information to the 1Password browser extension? I've learned that you can enter a new item in advance but I thought there was a way to instruct 1Password to remember my credentials. If so how is this done? At the moment this is my primary struggle.
