Use Duo for your team

Learn how to set up multi-factor authentication for your team with Duo.

Duo multi-factor authentication is an extra layer of protection for your team, in addition to each person’s Master Password and Secret Key. When enabled, Duo will ask each person on your team to approve their sign-ins on new devices and once every 30 days or sooner.

Set up Duo

You can set up Duo if you’re an owner or administrator on your team. Before you can set it up, you’ll need to sign up for a Duo account. Then follow these steps:

Step 1: Find your Duo integration key, Duo secret key, and API hostname

  1. Sign in to your Duo account.
  2. Click Applications > Protect an Application  in the sidebar.
  3. Find 1Password in the list and click Protect This Application. You’ll see your Duo integration key, Duo secret key, and API hostname.

Step 2: Turn on Duo for your team

  1. Sign in to your account on 1Password.com and click Settings in the sidebar.
  2. Click Duo, then turn on Enable Duo.
  3. Enter your Duo integration key, Duo secret key,* and API hostname, then click Save Settings.

Your team is now protected by Duo. Everyone on your team will be asked to enroll in Duo the next time they unlock 1Password. From now on, Duo will ask each person on your team to approve their sign-ins on new devices and once every 30 days.

* The Duo secret key is not the Secret Key for your 1Password account.

Manage your settings

Duo will periodically ask each person on your team to approve their sign-ins. To adjust the frequency of the approval requests:

  1. Sign in to your account on 1Password.com and click Settings in the sidebar.
  2. Click Duo, change the number of days, and click Save Settings.

To manage your Duo account, sign in to your Duo account.

Get help

1Password includes two methods for multi-factor authentication:

Duo Two-factor authentication
set up by an administrator set up by team members for themselves
made by Duo made by 1Password
not included with your subscription included with your subscription

People on your team can only use one method of multi-factor authentication at a time.

If anyone on your team already uses two-factor authentication, it will be replaced by Duo when you turn on Duo for your whole team. They’ll be prompted to enroll in Duo the next time they unlock 1Password.

Duo requires 1Password 7 or later.
