Learn how to sign in to a website that asks for your username on one page and your password on another.

Save a login for the website

Some websites ask for your username and password on different pages. To sign in to them, save a login with your username on the first page then update it with your password on the second page.

Step 1: Save a login with your username on the first page

On the first page, which asks for your username or email address:

  1. Enter your username or email address, but do not sign in or go to the next page.
  2. Click Save in 1Password.
  3. Enter a title and choose the vault where you want to save it. Then click Save.

On the second page, which asks for your password:

  1. Enter your password, but do not sign in or go to the next page.
  2. Click Save in 1Password. If you see Update Existing, click it.
  3. Choose the login you just created and click Update.

Now you can sign in to the site.

After you’ve saved a login for the website, you can use it to fill your username on the first page and your password on the second page.

  1. On the first page, click the 1Password icon and select the login you saved using the steps above. 1Password will fill your username. Then click Next (or the equivalent).
  2. On the second page, click the 1Password icon and select the same login. 1Password will fill your password. Then click Sign In (or the equivalent).

If your username and password are still not filling correctly, create two separate Login items:

  1. Repeat the steps above, but save a new Login item in 1Password for each page instead of updating the existing one.
  2. Give each Login item a unique title. For example, call the Login item for the first page “Google - username” and the one for the second page “Google - password”.

To sign in to the site, fill the username Login item on the first page and the password Login item on the second page.
