Use Watchtower to find passwords you need to change

Watchtower tells you about password breaches and other security problems on the websites you have saved in 1Password.

Watchtower is included with every 1Password subscription. We continually update Watchtower as security breaches are reported, so you can change your passwords right away.

Find vulnerable passwords

In 1Password, click Watchtower in the sidebar. You’ll see a complete list of all vulnerable passwords.

If any of your passwords are vulnerable, change them.

You’ll also see red Vulnerability Alert banners at the top of vulnerable passwords throughout 1Password.

To learn more about a vulnerability, click the red Vulnerability Alert banner, then click “Learn more”.

How Watchtower protects your privacy

1Password downloads Watchtower information from c.1password.com to check your websites on your devices. A list of websites you have saved is never sent to us.

Not only do we never sell information about the websites you save, we don’t even collect it. It’s a bigger technical challenge to design Watchtower this way, but we believe it’s the right way to do it.
