1Password (or other password manager)


I am currently using 1Password, which does not seem to be linkable. However, since the upcoming version (8) will drop the native Mac app in favor of a cross-platform electron app, i am already looking into alternatives anyway (hopefully hook-able!)

Any suggestion?

Hook now has a work-around you can use with any app that has a Copy Link function (which 1p has):

  1. you can manually use its “copy link” function" and then
  2. Focus on Link in Clipboard ; there you can rename the bookmark if you want

with the URL, you can also use Hook to Copied Link .

Thanks @LucB!
I cannot find the “Copy Link” action, but maybe that is because i am using the non-cloud version?

There’s no cloud version of Hook. You can sync to iCloud but that does not affect the UI.

Sorry, i meant i do not have a menu entry Copy URL in 1Password.

When using Hook on a 1P entry, i get “no hookable items found”.

you can manually use its “copy link” function

I do not have a “Copy Link” function in my 1Password 7. Can you elaborate where to find it?


If you right-click on an item in 1Password, you can find copy link in the share menu.

Hey tony,
thanks, but it’s not showing up for me. Will ask 1P directly.

Here’s how I copy private links in 1password 7:

  1. select an entry
  2. click on share button in top right corner
  3. select Copy Private Link

Share buttons are common in macOS apps.

or using menubar:

You can define a keyboard shortcut if you do this a lot.

I’ve heard 1password is developing or has developed an Electron version of their app. (Some other devs are going the other way.) In any event, that will have a non-native UI, and presumably look different .

Thanks Luc for coming back to this!
I cannot copy it because i am using the local version of 1P.

Oh right. Well a work around (hack) is to associate a unique ID to the note, and hook that to the item. Hook has an advanced menu ID generate ( AppleScript would do; or a convention to generate IDs that make sense for your passwords) then you can use Hook’s Copy a Search Link from Clipboard, and Hook that. Of course, the search link won’t have what you’re looking for, but it will contain a search item you can then use in 1p.

Gear Menu – Hook

(Of course the ID would not be the password, but something associated with the password that you could search for.)

I imagine it could be taken a step further with automation that would parse the link to extract the ID. Perhaps something for Hook to have in the future, where the hyperlink’s execution gets copied to clipboard . A new hook scheme, like hook://copy-to-clipboard/ …
Anyone have some other uses for that?
