My coworker sent me a link to use to login to a website, but I cannot seem to complete the login. Where do I copy paste the link, andhow can I log into the site with the given username and the long onepassword link I received?

    Hi @Courtney25A,

    First, you need to have 1Password installed and set up on your computer, with the browser extension. This may go without saying, but it's important enough that I don't mind mentioning it. If you don't already have it, you can download the free trial version here.

    With 1Password running on your computer, simply click the link that you received from your coworker. 1Password will ask if you want to add the item. If the item already exists in your vault, 1Password will ask if you want to update your existing item. Go ahead and say yes. Then you can double-click that new item in 1Password to use the new login credentials.

    You can read more about sharing a 1Password item in the user guide.

    Let us know if there's anything else we can help you with. :)
