Go & Fill
First, there was the manual typing of your name and password into each website, and it was ok. Then came along 1Password with the ability to quickly save and retrieve your passwords, and it was great. Now, 1Password’s Go & Fill feature means you may never have to type “.com” again, and it’s amazing!
Go & Fill gives you even faster access to your websites by automatically opening your Login’s URL, filling in your name and password, and submitting the form to get you on your way. Outside of 1Password being able to read your mind (you never know, we could be working on it!), Go & Fill is quite possibly the fastest way to log into your sites.
1Password Screencast: Go & Fill
This wonderful time-saving feature is accessible in several different ways, depending on which browser you’re using, or whether you’re even in a browser at all.
Login from 1Password, Icon or App
If 1Password is running and your data file is unlocked, you can right-click the Dock icon and choose the Go & Fill menu. Any folders that you use to organize your Logins will appear here, and the “Unassigned” folder will display everything else.
If your data file is locked, the Go & Fill menu will be grayed out. To gain access to the menu, simply select the “Unlock 1Password” option to do exactly what its name suggests. The Go & Fill menu should now be accessible from the Dock.
Alternatively, if you’re already looking at the login you need right in the 1Password application, just double-click it to Go & Fill that login. The arrow next to the URL in the details pane does the same thing.
Ultimate Convenience in Your Browser
If you are already surfing with a browser, Go & Fill is accessible there too so you do not have to switch applications or, for the keyboard junkies, even move your mouse. (In this case, the 1Password application does not need to be running.)
Depending on the browser, a “Show Logins” option should appear in either the Edit or View menus, just above the “Login with 1Password” option. Clicking “Show Logins” from a browser menu (or using the Cmd-Opt-\ keyboard shortcut) will display a slick, translucent window. Here you can quickly pick a Login by typing a few letters of its name or address, or you can press the “Select a Login…” button to browse your entire Agile Keychain like with the Dock menu.
When the desired site has been found, keyboard junkies can press tab, arrow to the Login, and hit enter. Mouse users can simply click. Either way, the site’s URL will open in a new tab or window in your default browser, the relevant credentials will be filled in for you, and the form will be submitted to get you into the site.
Do you keep bookmarks to frequently visited sites in your browsers Bookmarks Bar? If so, you’ll love a feature we like to call 1Click bookmarks. They are just what they sound like: a link you add to your browser’s bookmarks bar or menu that takes you straight to a site and logs you in. They use the same technology as Go & Fill, but you don’t have to type a thing! Just one click, and you’re there and logged in.
To create one of these little gems of login goodness, just drag any login from the 1Password window to your browser’s bookmarks bar. You can even drag logins to the desktop to create a bookmark file that can be stored anywhere and double-clicked. Need some help? Find out more!
Note to Google Chrome Users
At this time, our Chrome extension does not support Go & Fill from outside the browser extension itself. You can, however, access the same capabilities via the “All Logins” tab in 1Password’s Chrome extension.
