For this edition of Mac Tips and Tricks: 1Password. We think of 1Password as being helpful for entering passwords on websites and in iPhone and iPad apps. But its Universal Autofill feature has a hidden capability. It lets 1Password enter your Mac login password when you have change certain system settings, install apps and more. (But it won’t work to log in at startup before 1Password is running.) Turn this feature by clicking the New Item button in 1Password, search for and select “Mac login” . Give it a name that will sort alphabetically to the top, like “2020 27-inch iMac” . Enter your password, and click Save . Now whenever you are prompted for your Mac login password , press Command-\ (Backslash, located above the Return key), and then click the desired login or press Return to select the topmost item .
