Enter your first and last name so your administrators can find you easily.
Create your Master Password. It should be at least 15 characters long, with at least two of these character types:
- uppercase letters
- lowercase letters
- special characters
Practice typing your new Master Password, then click Continue and sign in to your account.
Save your Emergency Kit
After signing in, download your Emergency Kit. It contains your Secret Key, which you’ll need to sign in to your account on new devices.
Your Emergency Kit is a PDF document with your account details and a place to write your Master Password.
If you fill out your Emergency Kit and store it safely, you can use it to add your 1Password account to a new device, or access your account if you can’t sign in.

Click “Get the Apps” on your Home page, or click your name in the top right and choose “Get the Apps”.
Download 1Password for your device. Then open the app and choose 1Password.com from the list.
Scan your Setup Code to automatically fill your details, or sign in manually. Then enter your Master Password and click Sign In.
Get to know your vaults
On your Home page, you’ll see your vaults. Vaults are containers for items like your passwords and documents. You’ll also use them to share information with other people on your team.
You’ll start with at least one vault:
- Your Private vault is where you’ll keep work-related items that don’t need to be shared with your team, like your password for your work email account.
You can also use shared vaults to share information with other team members. If you have permission, you can create and share vaults. Otherwise, ask your administrator to create a new vault.
After you’ve created your account, learn how to set up the 1Password apps on all your devices.
