Search 1Password with Google Chrome’s 1Password Extension

1Password is one of the Apps on my Mac that I use the most. 1Password can create strong, unique passwords for you, remember them, and restore them, all directly in your web browser. It come bundled with extensions for all the major browsers. Recently I have started using Google Chrome for Mac more and more. I happened to discover a new feature that I had no idea existed and decided to do a quick post to share it.

If you want to find a website login in 1Password you have to unlock it an then start searching for where you want to go.

Some browsers like Safari have a keyboard shortcut ( option + command + \ ) to bring up the quick search called Go & Fill Login. Safari’s version looks like this:

Until just recently I had no idea you could do something like this in Chrome, with Chrome it is actually even easier. All you have to do is start to type 1password in the browser bar area. This will start the quick search for 1password right from their. You will have to unlock 1password before you can use this feature. It looks like this and is just awesome.

If you don’t already use 1Password I highly recommend it. 1Password has certainly made my life easier, you can even sync it between multiple computers using DropBox.

    Hi Josh – I am leaving a comment here because I can find no other way to contact you. I LOVE your article ( and am implementing it on our site. I need some help though. I don’t want the message to prepend to the body – I want it to remain on top of the site. How can I make that happen?
    Thanks so much!
