How to verify 1password really doing e2e encryption

Community Member

Hello, I'm a heavy user of 1Password.
However, I didn't know that 1Password doing e2e encryption until now, and I am unsure about how to verify this.
I searched on Google but couldn't find any specific methods.
Can you suggest a straightforward way to verify end-to-end encryption?

  • Hello @atralupus! 👋

    With 1Password all of your information is protected with end-to-end encryption that uses your own private key that is derived from two secrets that only you know: your 1Password account password and your Secret Key. This means that no one but you can decrypt your information.

    Your 1Password data is encrypted using three different layers of encryption to ensure that it is protected:

    1. TLS Encryption.
    2. Secure Remote Password (SRP) authentication and session encryption.
    3. The core end-to-end 256-bit AES encryption.

    You can read more about encryption here: Three layers of encryption keeps you safe when SSL/TLS fails

    If you're looking for a deep dive into how 1Password's end-to-end encryption works then I suggest reading through our security white paper: 1Password Security Design

    I hope that helps! 🙂
