Use 1Password to create and fill Privacy Cards

Learn how to set up and use Privacy Cards, virtual payment cards that protect you when you spend online.
With 1Password, you can create and fill Privacy Cards everywhere you pay online. Each card is locked to a single merchant, and you decide how much you want to spend and how often. And 1Password saves all your Privacy Cards for you, so there’s nothing for you to remember.

Set up Privacy Cards

Before you can set up Privacy Cards, you’ll need to sign up for a Privacy account and set up 1Password X. Then follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Privacy account.
  2. Click your name in the top right and choose Account.
  3. In the Integrations section, click Connect next to 1Password.

    If you have more than one 1Password account, choose the account you want to use with Privacy.

  4. Click Add to 1Password.

Now you can use 1Password to create and fill Privacy Cards in your browser.

Use Privacy Cards

To create and fill a Privacy Card, visit a website where you want to make a payment. When the site asks for your payment details, click the 1Password icon and choose Create a Privacy Card.

  • Enter a name for your card that will help you recognize it later.
  • To save your card in a different vault, choose it. If you don’t want to save the card in 1Password, turn off “Save in 1Password”.
  • If you have more than one funding source connected to your Privacy account, you can choose the one you want to use.
  • To set limits on charges, turn on “Set spending limit” and enter an amount, choose a frequency, or both. For example, to create a single-use card , set the frequency to “Once”.

When you’re done, click Create and Fill. 1Password will fill your Privacy Card details.

Create a Privacy Card
If you saved the card in 1Password, you’ll see it next time you click the 1Password icon to fill payment details for that website.
