How much of metadata is encrypted in the vaults

Community Member

In the unlikely event that 1Password is hacked and outside forces gain access to a copy of my vault, is any of the information within the entries visible, or is it all encrypted?
I've read the marketing info that states that metadata is encrypted, but I'm not sure if that was referring to everything or just a subset of the metadata.
For example, which of these items are encrypted?

  • entry name
  • username
  • website
  • additional fields that I add (all types or just a subset of types?)
  • Notes
  • Tags

Thanks for your help!

    It has been told by 1Password that literally everything is encrypted. Everything you mentioned above, as well as even custom field names and content. If someone steals an encrypted copy of your vault, he will see 100% of it encrypted with nothing left unencrypted.

    That's reassuring to hear, thanks Tertius3.

    Thanks for the question! As @Tertius3 mentioned, we don't have access to information that you enter in 1Password. Everything is end-to-end encrypted using secrets that only you know (your account password and Secret Key).
