Security question

Hi, I had a question regarding security.

What keeps someone from taking my email and using the forgot password option, and then resetting
my password?

Thank you in advance!
Pat

    Hi @PTR,

    What keeps someone from taking my email

    That sounds like a great reason to use a secure unique password generated by a password manager for your email account. :)

    and using the forgot password option, and then resetting my password?

    1Password does not have a 'forgot password' function. It isn't possible to reset a 1Password Master Password by entering your email address and receiving a reset email like it is with most other services. This is why it is critical to choose a Master Password that is memorable.

    I hope that helps!
