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.


If you use 1Password at work, save your work and personal items in separate accounts so you still have access to your personal account if you leave your team. If your team uses 1Password Business, learn how to redeem a free 1Password Families membership.

Consider using the same 1Password account password for all your 1Password accounts

When you’re invited to join an account, you’ll be asked to create an account password.

If you already have a 1Password account, consider using the same password you already use. You’ll then be able to unlock the 1Password apps and browser extension with one account password to see the information in all your accounts.

If you signed up with a different password, learn how to change it.

Account setup: create your account password

If you need to use a different passwords for your accounts, you can still unlock each account separately in the 1Password apps and browser extension.

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 and browser extension where you can see all your information at the same time.

When you add multiple accounts to the apps and browser extension, you can:

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