Creating a new Login item

  • Where you have an existing account:
    Log in to the site, find the site’s “change password” page, enter your current password, generate a strong password, fill in and submit the form, log out, visit the site’s login page again, fill in the username field, use the last generated password to fill the password field, submit the login form, and let 1Password create a Login that you can use from then on.

  • Where you don’t yet have an account:
    Find the site’s “new account”, “signup”, or “register” page, generate a strong password, fill in and submit the form, visit the site’s login page, fill in the username field, use the last generated password to fill the password field, submit the login form, and let 1Password create a Login that you can use from then on.
