One thing that's always given me peace of mind using a password manager is that on any browser, I could visit their site and enter my Master Password to access all of my passwords. I don't know what scenario I actually envision needing this for, and it rarely happens, but I still want to be able to do it. Whether it's simply wanting to access one of my accounts on a friend's laptop, or being stranded without any of my devices and being able to visit a public library and access my email on one of their computers, I can imagine instances where this ability would be very useful.
Needing my Secret Key in addition to my Master Password to access my 1Password vault seems to make this impossible, and it worries me. It's very easy to set up my account across my own devices by using the various methods to scan in my Secret Key, but it wouldn't be easy at all to access my account elsewhere in a pinch. I recognize that this is by design, and that the Secret Key adds a significant amount of security, but at the cost of possibly not being able to access my account in a situation where I needed to I'm not sure if that's worth it to me.
I suppose I could carry my Secret Key in my wallet, but making it too available defeats the purpose of its added security, and there's still always a chance I could be left without it. I just really like the concept of having my Master Password in my head and knowing that's enough to grant myself access. Maybe I'm being ridiculous and missing the point entirely, I'd appreciate any insight the community might have into my predicament.
