Get help

When you unlock 1Password with your Master Password, only accounts with the same password will be unlocked.

To unlock an account that has a different password, lock 1Password, then unlock it using the password for that account.

We recommend using the same Master Password for all your accounts. If you signed up for accounts with different passwords, you can change them.
