How to use multiple accounts

1Password works great with more than one account. Learn how to get the most out of your multiple accounts.

You might have multiple accounts because you’re already using 1Password at home and were invited to a team at work. Or you might be on multiple teams. Either way, 1Password works just as well with one account as it does with many. It’s easy to switch between them to see exactly what you need when you need it.

Use your 1Password account password for all your accounts

When you’re invited to join a team, you’ll be asked to create a account password. Because you already use 1Password, enter the account password you already use.

Then you’ll be able to unlock the 1Password apps with your one account password to see the information in all your accounts.

If you signed up with a different password, you can change it.

Add all your accounts to the apps

It’s easy to choose from multiple accounts when you sign in to your 1Password account on the web, but it’s a better experience to add them to the apps where you can see all your information at once.

When you add multiple accounts to the apps, you can:

  • See all your items from your work and personal accounts at the same time.
  • Switch to a specific account to see only those items.
  • Choose where to save new items.

See everything or just one account

You can switch vaults to see only the information that you need. For example, if you’re at work you can select one of your work vaults. Or, you can see items from multiple accounts at the same time.

Save items where you want them

Whenever 1Password asks you to save a password in your browser, you can choose which vault it goes into. And you can always move items later if you change your mind.
