Setup for Passkey to Autofill

If your credential manager uses vaults, decide how you will implement using a Private Vault vs regular Vaults set to be shared vs the Shared Vault in your own use case scenarios.

Configure iOS, macOS, and browser settings for autofilling passkeys from 1Password and not iCloud or browser autofill. Pick one or the other to prevent conflict.

You only need to see one passkey in your credential manager. It’s in the account where you might see multiple passkeys set up for different devices. It’s up to the service as to whether or not they will let you revoke or rename a passkey and you might have to dig through many settings to discover where they keep passkey management. Amazon, for example, wasn’t very intuitive.

Set Up a Practice Passkey

Passkey Directories

Just because a product or service is listed in the directory does not mean there is a passkey system set up yet. It only means there are plans to implement it in the future.
