Master Password

How do I change my Master Password?

If you have a 1Password account, you can change your Master Password by signing in to your account at Click your account name in the top right and choose My Profile. Click Manage > Change Master Password, then enter your current and new Master Password.

If you don’t have a 1Password account, you can change your Master Password from any of the apps. Open 1Password and choose Settings (Preferences on Mac). Then go to the Security section, and click or tap the Change Master Password button.

I have several accounts and vaults. Which password do I use to unlock 1Password?

Your Master Password is set when you use 1Password for the first time. It belongs to the first vault you create or the first account you sign in to. Any other vaults or accounts will be unlocked when you enter your Master Password.

So, it’s possible to have different Master Passwords for each app if you set up your accounts or vaults in a different order.
