    Hello @break80! 👋

    Thank you for the question! We're currently testing passkey unlock for 1Password in a public beta:

    The beta requires that you create a new 1Password account in order to use passkey unlock. The team is hoping to bring passkey unlock to existing 1Password accounts in the future. 🙂

    oops...wrongly entered a comment and can't see how I can delete it. So I changed it to this.

    Maybe I am missing something about this 2nd account business, but opening one sounds problematic to me since I already pay for one account and do not want to buy a second account.

    I'm merged your comment into this thread just to keep the conversation in one place. 🙂

    I'm sorry for the confusion. Passkey unlock for 1Password is currently being tested in beta and requires the creation of a new individual account. Once our team finishes working on the feature and it is officially released, passkey unlock will be available for existing accounts as well.

    You can certainly wait until the feature is officially released and available for your existing account, participating in the current beta is optional.

    @Dave_1P once unlock with Passkeys is rolled out to existing accounts, will we have the option to remove our password from our account and rely solely on the passkey?

    Thanks for the question. The team is currently working at bringing passkey functionality to existing accounts but I don't have any details to share at the moment. Keep an eye on our blog: Blog
