Important

You won’t be able to find your Secret Key in Safari unless you sign in to your 1Password account at least every 7 days. To make sure you can always access your account, set up the 1Password apps and download your Emergency Kit.

You can find your Secret Key and Setup Code in your 1Password account on the web. Use a browser you’ve used to sign in to your account before, like the browser you used to create your account.

  1. Sign in to your 1Password account on 1Password.com.
  2. Click your name in the top right and choose Get the Apps to see your Setup Code.

To view your Secret Key, click Can’t scan your Setup Code? Sign in manually.

Find your Secret Key in your Emergency Kit

You can find your Secret Key and Setup Code in your Emergency Kit, which may be saved on the device you used to create your 1Password account.

If you don’t remember saving your Emergency Kit, look in your Downloads folder for a PDF file named “1Password Emergency Kit”.

If you’re part of a team that uses 1Password Business, and you can’t find an Emergency Kit saved on your device, Emergency Kits may be turned off for your team. If you unlock 1Password with your identity provider, you won’t have an Emergency Kit.

Your Secret Key is your secret. It protects your account together with your 1Password account password, which only you know. We don’t have a copy of your Secret Key or any way to recover or reset it for you. To find your Secret Key, you’ll need one of the following:

  • the 1Password app on any device where you’re already signed in to your account
  • a browser you’ve used to sign in to your account before
  • your Emergency Kit

If you don’t have one of those, but you belong to a family or team account, ask a family organizer or team administrator to recover your account.

If you’ve lost access to a device, learn how to regenerate your Secret Key.

If you still can’t find your Secret Key, contact 1Password Support.
