2FA: How do you reverse your choice of "Don't Save in 1Password"

Community Member

I have a few logins where 1Password presented the option to set up Two-Factor Authentication. At the time, I selected "Don't Save in 1Password", but I've changed my mind.
The problem I have is that, even when I enter editing mode, I don't see an option to set up 2FA.
How can I set up 2FA for accounts where I dismissed the 2FA option in the past?

1Password Version: 1Password 7 Version 7.9.5 (70905002) Mac App Store
Extension Version: Not Provided
OS Version: macOS 12.5

    Hi @maxbug. Even if you've dismissed the Watchtower warning about 2FA, you can click the "+ add more" button, then "One-Time Password" to allow you to scan a QR code or manually enter the secret in the text box.

    You can restore the Watchtower alert by removing the 2FA tag that Watchtower will have added when the alert was dismissed.

    Hope that helps. :)

    Hi GreyM1P, thanks for taking the time to answer my question - your
    response DID help!

    While I couldn't see a "+ add more" button in my UI,
    I could access the option to add a One-Time Password by clicking as
    shown in my screenshots, then clicking on the QR Code
    icon that's revealed.

    I'm so glad I'm now using 1Passwoord for 2FA as
    it's a seamless experience compared to using a separate authenticator

    Thanks again!

    On behalf of Grey you're very welcome, @maxbug! I'm also a big fan of streamlining the multi-factor authentication experience so I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it. 🙂
