Set up 1Password
1Password keeps you safe online and automatically saves and fills your passwords for you.
To get started, decide whether you want to use 1Password with your family or individually.
- Family: Ask the person who created your family account to invite you. If you’ll be creating the account, get started with 1Password Families.
- Individual: Sign up on 1Password.com.
You’ll get an email to confirm your account. Then you can choose a strong account password, which you’ll use to unlock 1Password.
Get the apps
1Password is available on all your devices, so you’ll always have all your information with you. Any changes you make on one device are immediately available everywhere else.
There’s also a lot more you can do with the apps, like filling passwords automatically, so you should set up the apps right after you sign up.
Save, fill, and change your passwords
After you install the 1Password apps, you can start using 1Password in your browser to automatically save and fill passwords on all the sites you visit on the web.
But the most important thing to do is to use 1Password to change your passwords and make them stronger. Now that you have everything set up, you can get started on that now!
After you’ve mastered the basics, there’s a lot more you can do with 1Password.

Share with others
Vaults are containers for items like your passwords and documents. Your Private vault is where you’ll keep personal items you don’t want to share, like your email password.
If you invite people to your family account, you’ll see a Shared vault for items everyone in your family needs access to, like your Wi-Fi and Netflix passwords.
To share something with everyone in your family, create an item in your Shared vault or move an item to it.
Create additional vaults
You can create additional vaults to organize your information. You can also use vaults you create to share some items with only certain people, like your spouse but not your kids.
And not everyone who can view a vault needs to be able to edit it. You get to decide who can make changes.
