Saving and filling passwords

Sign in to websites with username and password split across multiple pages

Learn how to sign in to a website that asks for your username on one page and your password on another, like some banking and other sites.

Step 1: Create a new Login 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 to the site or advance to the next page.

  2. Click the 1Password icon in your browser’s toolbar. If 1Password is locked, enter your Master Password.

  3. Click the gear icon next to the search field and choose Save New Login.

  4. Give your new Login item a unique name, then click Save Login.

  5. Click “Sign in” (or the equivalent) on the page to advance to the next step of the login sequence.

Step 2: Update the Login on the second page

On the second page, which asks for your password:

  1. Enter your password and any other information the site requires, but do not advance to the next page.

  2. Click the 1Password icon in your browser’s toolbar. Then click the gear icon next to the search field and choose Save New Login.

  3. Select the Update Existing tab at the top, choose the name of the Login you just created, and click the Update Existing button.

  4. Click “Sign in” (or the equivalent on the page) to sign in to the site.

Use your multi-page Login item

To use your multi-page Login item, fill it once on each page when you sign in to the site:

  1. Fill the Login item on the first page, which asks for your username. 1Password will fill in your username and take you to the second page after you click “Sign in” (or the equivalent).
  2. On the second page, fill the Login item again. 1Password will fill your password and sign you in after you click “Sign in” (or the equivalent).

Step 1: Create a new Login on the first page

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

  1. Enter your username, but do not sign in to the site or advance to the next page.
  2. Click the 1Password button in your browser’s toolbar. If 1Password is locked, enter your Master Password.
  3. Click (Settings) > “Save new Login”, then select the “Create new” tab.
  4. Give your new Login item a unique name, then click Save.
  5. Click “Sign in” (or the equivalent) on the page to advance to the next step of the login sequence.

Step 2: Update the Login on the second page

On the second page, which asks for your password:

  1. Enter your password and fill any other required fields. Again, do not advance to the next page.
  2. Click the 1Password button in your browser’s toolbar.
  3. Click (Settings) > “Save new Login”.
  4. Select the “Update existing” tab, then choose the new Login you just created in the previous section.
  5. Click Save to add the new details to this Login item.
  6. Click “Sign in” (or the equivalent) to advance to the next page.

Get help

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

  1. Repeat the steps above, but save a new entry in 1Password for each page instead of updating the existing one.
  2. Give each Login item a unique name. For example, call the Login 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 on the first page and the password Login item on the second page.
