Set up trusted devices to unlock with SSO

Learn how to set up additional trusted devices and browsers to unlock 1Password with your identity provider.

When your team unlocks 1Password with SSO, the first time you sign up or switch to unlock with SSO, you’ll set up a trusted device. You can then use this device to verify other devices you want to add to your account. The verification process is an essential part of making sure the secrets you store in 1Password are safe and encrypted end-to-end. Learn more about trusted device security .
