Saving and filling passwords

Save and sign in with passkeys in your browser

Learn how to save passkeys and use them to sign in to your accounts on the web with 1Password.

Passkeys are an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. You can use 1Password to save the passkeys you create for your accounts and sign in to websites with passkeys in your browser.

Because passkeys saved in 1Password are like any other items, you can also view, edit, move, and even share them with other people.

Save a passkey

To save a passkey, find an existing login that now supports passkeys using Watchtower or create a new account on a passkey-supported website. Depending on the website, you may need to create an account with a username and password before you can create a passkey.

When you choose the option to create a passkey, 1Password will offer to save it. If you have an existing Login item for the website saved in 1Password, you can choose to update it by adding the passkey. Or you can save the passkey as a new item.

Sign in to a website with a passkey

After you’ve saved your passkey for a website, 1Password can use it to sign in for you.

Sign out of the website, then follow the steps to sign back in using a passkey. When you see the list of your passkeys saved in 1Password, click Sign in beside the one you want to use.

You may need to select the 1Password icon in the username field and choose the Login item that contains your passkey.

Delete a passkey


Deleting a passkey saved in 1Password won’t remove it from your account on a website or service. Make sure to follow the appropriate steps to remove a passkey on a website when you delete it in 1Password.

To delete a passkey:

  1. Find the Login item for the passkey in 1Password and click or tap Edit.
  2. Click or tap beside the passkey field, then click or tap Save.

    If your Login item doesn’t contain a password, you can delete the item instead.
