Format your secure notes with Markdown

Learn how to add rich text formatting to secure notes using Markdown syntax.

When you edit a secure note or the notes field for any item in 1Password, you can use Markdown syntax to apply text styles, create lists, and more. To see your note displayed with formatted text, save the item after you’re done editing it.

Or indent each line with at least four spaces.

Links that begin with https:// become clickable, like https://example.com.

To use a character that would otherwise be interpreted as Markdown formatting, precede it with a backslash (\). For example, \_hello\_ becomes _hello_, not hello.
