Set up 1Password
1Password keeps you safe online and automatically saves and fills your passwords for you. It’s easy to get started.
Set up the app
To get started, open 1Password on your Mac.
- On the Welcome screen, click More Options and choose “Create a standalone vault”.
- Create your Master Password, then click Continue and complete the setup process.
You’ll use your Master Password to unlock 1Password. No one can reset or recover it for you, so it’s important to remember it.
To make sure you can always unlock 1Password, write down your Master Password and keep it somewhere safe, like with your passport or birth certificate.
Set up the extension
If you’re using Safari, the 1Password extension is included with the 1Password app and doesn’t need to be installed separately.
If you’re using a different browser, like Chrome or Firefox, install the 1Password extension.
To prevent your browser from interfering with 1Password, turn off its built-in password manager.
Sync with iCloud
To access all your 1Password data on your other Macs and iOS devices, sync 1Password with iCloud.
To sync with an iOS device, get 1Password for iOS.
After you set up 1Password, learn how to use it to manage your passwords, credit cards, secure notes, and more.
If you have any trouble setting up or using 1Password, contact your IT team.
