How do I make sure my journalism account doesn't get billed?


Hi there,

I recently created a 1Password account and I am currently inviting all of my newsroom collegues too. I signed up from an account that said 1Password is free for journalists and the team account contains the name of the news platform I work for. However, if I login and click Billing, it says I only have 10 days left for my free trial. What am I doing wrong? Where can I make sure we stick to the free journalism account?

Thanks a lot, sorry if I have misread something,

    I hope that helps. Should you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.

    Hi Ben, thanks for your reply and the link. Unfortunately, that link is exactly where I created my 1Password account for our newsroom. However, no one from 1Password ever got in touch with me to check if we’re “real” journalists. Any idea how I could avoid being charged from here? Thank you so much!

    Gotcha. I'm sorry to hear about that. Let me do some research and see what I can find out. So I can do that can you please email me from your work email at with a link to this thread?
